Chile: Strength and concrete solidarity with comrades Juan Aliste and Marcelo Villarroel

Today, through these words, we want to support some colleagues who resist with dignity in the High Security Prison in Santiago de Chile, we’re referring to Juan Aliste Vega and Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda, autonomous and libertarian subversive prisoners. These comrades are currently serving a sentence for some bank robberies, one of which culminated in the death of a cop on October 18, 2007.

The Witch in the Smoke

The Witch in the Smoke

From Just Seeds by Roger Peet - Art & Politics, Today's Extinct Animal

David Graeber died last week, and in mourning his loss and considering his contributions, I read, at a friend’s suggestion, his 2011 summary of Occupy on the Al Jazeera website. He begins by talking about the questions that people often asked him, at that time, about aspects of the communications and decision making structure within Occupy that they found confusing, and which they thought unlikely to find purchase among the general public. The example he gives is the general wry contempt that most journalists had for the twinkly fingers of agreement, and the sprawling consensus process. His response to those journalists was to observe that Occupy’s explosive spread into cities and towns across the country showed that the thing it was doing was something that inspired people across America, regardless of the minutiae of process. The idea that a new form of relating to other people could be created ad hoc wherever you were was the force at the heart of the idea, and what propelled it.

WHO ASPIRES TO FREEDOM CANNOT BE MEASURED

via Il Rovescio

From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.

Paris, France: 2 incendiary attacks

Solidarity with our comrades in prison is something essential. And even if it is a constant practice, day after day, we like the idea of an international campaign to remember them. A solidarity that should be more than words, more than paint and testimonies. In the night between 24 and 25 August, in the Passage de Lagny, in Paris, we set fire to a van of the Eiffage company infamous for building prisons (and the huge open air prison: these increasingly guarded and inhuman cities).

Road block and banner drop [I. W. S. W. A. P.]

via anarquia.info, translation by Anarchist News

Prisons, cameras, police, snitches, drones, debts and mortgages, employment contracts have been some of its devices and mechanisms to reduce our lives to the sad imperative of producing and consuming. Even in this desolate landscape, surrounded by concrete, smog, buildings and honking, there are bodies that resist.

Juan Flores: Solidarity w/ Mónica & Francisco

Letter from Anarchist Comrade Juan Flores Riquelme about the Arrest of Mónica and Francisco

We knew that by choosing the path of struggle against capital, our lives would develop against all odds, and it was not unknown to us that prison could be a possible destination. We questioned this humiliating reality and its so-called “social peace”, we severely questioned the enrichment of the bourgeoisie and their power.

Letter from Carla

Letter from Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Carla

Salut!

After 536 days on the run, I was arrested on July 26th near Saint-Etienne. I experienced the arrest as the first performance of a scene repeated a thousand times in my head, or rather 536 times? Everything seemed to happen in slow motion: the hooded cops pointing their rifles at me, put me down and ask me the name that I’ve so often been called lately. It felt strange to pronounce it.

Message for the I. W. S. W. A. P.

For those of us who confront domination, the story of power will never speak for us. Both guilt and innocence belong to those who exercise or condone punishment. From our destructive practice with the prison and authoritarian dynamics, we can only despise every categorisation with which the enemy tries to define, distort and separate us, whether as culprits, leaders or prisoners.

Responsibility Claim for an Incendiary Attack Against Transit Company Metbus

The context of fear and submission to the pandemic that has been so well capitalized on by states around the world, especially the one that the “Chilean” state is trying to subjugate us with. And one month after the arrest of Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar. Different anarchic individuals organized themselves in advance to give a little taste of the incendiary sabotage during the commemoration of the murder of the land fighter Maca Valdés in the emblematic and historical town of Simón Bolívar and the fighters Erick Rodríguez and Iván Palacios.
