In Sean's words...
"I signed my transfer notice yesterday. I wrote everybody and gave them the Trumbull address. I got packed up today. Then the warden notified me that Central Office Anonymous Coward cancelled my transfer. Now I missed commissary and commissary won't let me shop. I don't even have soap.
Please let everyone know I'm not at Trumbull..."
Gender Anarky has always been a two-prong resistance within the prison construct: a fighting aspect, and a diplomatic aspect. We are well established in both of these sectors: we have a militia presence on the yards, and we are doing work within the prison administration and in the courts on issues we have as trans females, which basically involves paperwork - complaints, petitions, lawsuits, outreach. We also have a public information sector that facilitates the production and distribution of our free literature to prisoners and others through our website and post box.
A CALL FOR SOLIDARITY!
The situation of our comrades in prison: greyness, solitude and hunger
(First Posted on 23/06/2015, since that time one more comrade was imprisoned.)
Non-vegan diet, isolation, boredom, hour and a half of daylight.
From You Caring
Kevin Chianella received a 2 year prison sentence for his participation in the G20 protests in Toronto in 2010. Chianella, 18 at the time, got a heftier sentence because he attacked a cop car with a canvas bag full of rocks. He is also presumed to have fueled and sustained a fire set on another cop car. Chianella, from Queens, was supported in court by his family, among them, his 90-year-old grandmother.
Now, we are nearing Kevin’s release. Not only will Kevin face the same financial hardships many face once released from prison, but he also owes friends and family members who took on significant financial burdens throughout his trial and imprisonment.
Translated by act for freedom now
Gianluca Iacovacci has been under house arrest since yesterday, 16th June. The comrade was arrested following a string of actions of sabotage carried out in the Castelli Romani area, for which he had claimed responsibility.
The 6-year sentence of the first grade trial had been reduced to 3 years at the appeal trial, after charges of terrorism were dropped.
From Support Marius Mason:
On June 16th, we received notification from Marius that he has been transferred to the SHU—or Special Housing Unit, also known as solitary confinement—for, we believe, 30 days as a result of an alleged violation of prison disciplinary rules. We still do not know the basis of these allegations, but we believe they involve a violation of his right to counsel. At this point, Marius does not have all of his property in the SHU, and his normal phone privileges and all e-mail privileges have been suspended. Marius’s lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, has not yet received the incident report, but based on what she has has heard from prison officials, she believes the disciplinary action to be unjust.
Marius is currently in good spirits, but solitary confinement is a terrible and dispiriting form of punishment. Marius can still send and receive letters, so please show your support and solidarity by dropping him a line!

Written statement found in between the barricades and Molotov cocktails at the AustralUniversity of Chile (UACH), around noon on Wednesday May 13th, 2015:
“It is the time to act in our everyday life with our affine ones, for the destruction of the industrial prison complex and any social attempt to reform that disgusting system of death. Solidarity must never be an empty phrase, but an everyday action confronting power and supporting those who are sequestered in this war to the death.” Mauricio Morales.
