‘I Am An Anarchist’: Remembering Anarchist Prisoner Brian McCarvill, who Died of COVID-19 in Prison on his 68th Birthday

By MG Belka

The Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC) does not publicly release the names of people who died from complications caused by COVID-19 while inside one of their prisons. They say this is because of the desire for transparency while respecting the privacy of the deceased. They reiterate this policy every time another prisoner dies.

Possibilities of pressure on the dictatorial regime in Belarus

received via email, from Lukáš Borl

Recently, anarchists who already have extensive experience in Lukashenko’s regime repressions have been imprisoned. Dmitry Dubovsky, Igor Olinevich, Sergei Romanov, Dmitry Rezanovich, Mikola Dziadok, Akihiro Gaevsky-Hanada and others. The reason for their prosecution is obvious: they resisted the dictatorship. The regime in Belarus is no different from other dictatorships. It does not accept active resistance to one’s own evil, even if it is only the activity of individuals or small groups. The ruling class realizes that after so many years of oppression, any resistance has great potential to become richer until the regime overwhelms it and falls.

Letter from Anarchist Prisoner Beppe on Strike in Pavia, Italy

Prison of Pavia, December 3rd, 2020

Dear comrades,

I am writing to inform you that as of December 2nd, 2020, I have started a strike (the umpteenth after several hunger strikes during this year in this prison!) of the air and the common rooms (the only four hours available to get out of the cells in 20 hours). With this strike I ask for treatment for my illnesses which have been amply documented for about a year by my lawyer Fabio Sommovigo! The reports and complaints submitted by my lawyer have not been enough!

We Embrace Again: Communique from Family Members and Friends of Subversive and Anarchist Prisoners

During these last two weeks, all of our imprisoned subversive compañerxs in their different units (high-security prison, maximum security section and the “connotación publica” module in the San Miguel Prison) received a visit from one of their loved ones. We ruptured the protocols and we embraced each other with an intensity that only genuine affection and the anarchist spirit allows. In spite of this long period without seeing each other, the certainties of combat remain unshakable inside and outside of prison.

Action in support of Italian anarchist prisoners

from Attaque.noblogs.org Translated to Italian by: Inferno Urbano and to English by Act for freedom now!

The trial against five anarchists arrested in Italy in the ambit of the umpteenth repressive operation, Bialystock, began on December 14. The comrades were arrested on June 12 at the request of the Italian government with the collaboration of France and Spain, in the midst of a major campaign against the anarchist movement.
The Italian State is prosecuting hundreds of anarchists in trials that have been going on since September. The Bialystock operation has had a very strong echo in Saint-Etienne because our comrade Roberto was arrested by the SDAT (Antiterrorism Sub-direction) and is being held in the prison of Fresnes (Paris) before being handed over to the Italian authorities.

In the run-up to the trial for operation Bialystok, a call for economic solidarity (Italy)

On the morning of June 12, 2020, the Special Operational Group of the Carabinieri staged yet another anti-terrorist operation against anarchists and anarchists in Italy by the Rome Public Prosecutor’s Office. Five anarchists end up in the dungeons of the state and initially two remain imprisoned at home. Nowadays our comrades continue to be locked up while one of the comrades initially forced under house arrest is free. Among the accusations made against them is the usual «subversive association with the purpose of terrorism» and «incitement to commit crimes».
