New Writings and Update from Anarchist Prisoner Xinachtli

New Writings and Update from Anarchist Prisoner Xinachtli

From AMW English

Fraternal, revolutionary greetings, in the true spirit of internationalism and solidarity against all forces of evil, destruction and self-destruction, hoping this one finds you, family and friends in the very best, as it leaves me, during these trying times of not only the deadly Coronavirus COVID-19, but of the same deadly white supremacist pig-germ that now occupies the White House, that is as deadly as COVID-19 for our impoverished communities, and for the imprisoned, and poor immigrants seeking a better way of life, all pushed back by this sheer imperialist arrogance and elitism of the billionaire, money-laundering pig club that has taken over the halls of political power in the U.S. of A., a clear and present danger to all of humanity and planet Earth. Let future generations disown us and label us as spineless cowards, if we do not act to stop this insanity and madness!

Philippines – the continuing crackdown on anarchists

“Even though by telling you this we fear for our lives, our families and our comrades and friends we continue to educate our community about anarchism, giving them ideas on how to resist this kind of injustice and show that there is another way. Our so-called democracy is all fucking lies.

“We have been imprisoned many times because of anarchism spreading, time is all we have that is expensive and we don’t know when we will be hit (by the DDS or Police/Military), we can only hope that we are not on the list”.

Solidarity is fragile – thoughts on the “Network” case from ABC Dresden

Solidarity is fragile – thoughts on the “Network” case from ABC Dresden

From Anarchist Black Cross Dresden

Around a month ago before the whole Europe was locked down by the national states, anarchist movement in different parts of the world was shaken by the news from Russia around “Network Case”. Liberal news portal “Meduza” published information that some of the defendants from Penza were involved in murder of two people while they were on the run. This information brought back the topic of how we organize our solidarity and what are the limits of our solidarity. Although we are not located in the region, we have a connection to our comrades in Russia. We organized many solidarity events for those prosecuted under “Network” case in the city of Dresden. For example, an evening at the end of December, where we encouraged people to write to Russian Anarchists and Antifascists in prison.

The Dark Side of the Network Case

The Dark Side of the Network Case

From a2day dot net

We have written about our attitude to the Network case and related contradictions before. Since then, nothing has changed for the better. Participants chose the role of typical victims of the regime, remaining indistinguishable from the rest of the same. This was more convenient for parents, human rights activists, and liberal circles shouting about the new 1937. The trial of the Penza group ended, and the defendants received huge sentences, from 6 to 18 years.

A Russian court has issued harsh sentences to seven antifascist and anarchist activists in a controversial domestic terrorism case marred by claims that investigators tortured the defendants to elicit confessions.

The court in Penza, a city about 390 miles (630km) south-east of Moscow, sentenced the men to terms of six to 18 years in penal colonies for allegedly forming an organisation called Set, which translates as the Network, which prosecutors said planned to carry out future attacks inside to overthrow the government. The men were also charged with an assortment of weapons and drugs charges.
