Make a video-congratulation for Belarusian anarchist prisoner Mikalai Dziadok!


ачкAugust 23 is not only the day of execution of Sacco and Vanzetti, but also the birthday of another imprisoned anarchist from Belarus Mikalai Dziadok. This is also the first day of the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners. This day he will turn 26 and this will be his 4th birthday behind the bars. We want to make him a video-postcard, where people form different countries and cities, in different languages congratulate him on this day. We call you to record a short video, alone or with friends, inside or outside, using words or showing slogans. For many of you this can be the only opportunity to express solidarity with Mikalai.

We accept the videos by August 1st at belarus_abc@riseup.net, then we’ll make a compilation of them all and put it on our website. Mind that it’s going to appear online, so take precautions if you want to hide your identity. Mikalai won’t be able to see this vidoe in prison, but we believe he will be astonished by it when he gets out of prison on next March.

Mikalai Dziadok is a Belarusian anarchist. On May 27, 2011 was found guilty of the attack on the casino “Shangri La”, the attack on the Trade Union Federation building and the participation in the anti-militarist manifestation near the General Staff and sentenced to 4.5 years of standard regime penal colony for group hooliganism. After 2 years of sentence transferred to a high-security prison.

Here is a sample video by comrades from Zaragoza, Spain

Призыв к Дням единых действий в поддержку крымского антифашиста Александра Кольченко


r-jy1ruanoyУже более полугода, с самого начала массовых протестов против олигархического режима Януковича на Украине, российские власти раскручивают маховик империалистической пропагандистской машины. Опасаясь повторения “болотных” протестов у себя дома, подконтрольные государству СМИ сделали все возможное для того, чтобы заклеймить протестное движение в соседней стране и создать иллюзию, что только вмешательство РФ спасет Украину от катастрофы.

История о присоединении Крыма стала важной частью пропагандистской кампании, нацеленной на рост патриотизма и повышения рейтингов первых лиц. Именно этим объясняется желание российских спецслужб объявить акции протеста против российской власти в Крыму террористическими актами, а участвующих в них активистов – террористическим сообществом.

Call out for an International Week for Anarchist Prisoners


2bIn summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change. At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.

This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30. We chose August 23 as a starting point, because on that very day in 1927 the Italian-American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed in prison. (more…)

Bolivia: International Day of Solidarity for the May 29 Case


Absolution for the May 29 defendants! No highway through TIPNIS! Freedom for all prisoners!

On May 29, 2012, 13 people were arrested by police in La Paz, Bolivia. All of them were connected to anarchist participation in the defense of TIPNIS, an indigenous territory and national park. The 13 were accused of a series of arsons, bombings, and sabotage claimed by the Informal Anarchist Federation-International Revolutionary Front (FAI-FRI). The actions, occurring from September 2011 to May 2012, targeted government buildings, banks, car companies, fast food restaurants, supermarkets, and animal industries. Some of the attacks were claimed in solidarity with the struggle to defend TIPNIS, others in solidarity with comrades facing repression in Chile, others in support of animal liberation.

Faced with lengthy prison sentences for the charges of Terrorism and Attempted Murder, five people decided to snitch on others to save their skin. The snitches were rewarded with release or house arrest. Other detainees were released due to lack of connection with the case. Only one detainee refused to give a statement to the police. Two anarchists remain in prison, awaiting trial. According to Bolivian law, they may wait as long as three years.

The leftwing government of Evo Morales is intent on continuing the same capitalist development projects of its predecessor, often on a greater scale. In this case, they are building a bioceanic highway through the rainforest, destroying indigenous territory in the process. In the fall of 2011, the government repressed the 8th Indigenous March in defense of TIPNIS with beatings and arrests. Now they are trying to portray the fiery sabotage of the anarchists as “terrorism.”

This is one of the first usage of antiterrorist laws by the Bolivian state, and as elsewhere, it is being used as a tool for political repression. The only evidence the government has are the words of snitches, anarchist literature, and the fact that those arrested participated in protests in solidarity with TIPNIS. The government prosecution has also been based in xenophobia, using connections with “foreigners” as proof of wrongdoing.

On May 29, one year will have passed since the arrests. We are calling for a day of international solidarity to show the Bolivian government, and all governments, that we do not forget. Our actions must show our determination to win the immediate release of the two comrades still in prison, absolution for all those facing charges, and an end to the highway. We will continue struggling as long as anyone is behind bars.

Absolution for the May 29 defendants! No highway through TIPNIS! Freedom for all prisoners!

CALL TO JOIN IN THE INTERNATIONAL DAYS OF SOLIDARITY AGAINST POLITICAL REPRESSION IN RUSSIA


An appeal from the Russian leftists to their comrades in the struggle:

Today we, the representatives of Russian leftist organizations, turn
to our comrades all over the world with an appeal for solidarity. This
call and your response to it are very important to us. Right now we
are facing not just another instance of dubious sentencing by the
Russian “justice” system or another case of a human life broken by the
encounter with the state’s repressive apparatus. Today the authorities
have launched against us a repressive campaign without precedent in
the recent history of Russia, a campaign whose goal it is to
extinguish the left as an organized political force. The recent
arrests, threats, beatings, aggressive media attacks and moves towards
declaring leftist groups illegal all point to the new general strategy
on the part of the authorities, much more cruel and much less
predictable than that of recent years.
