Je débute cette lettre en envoyant mes sincères salutations aux compas hors de ces murs, en espérant que les rythmes à l’unisson de la rébellion continuent de battre dans leurs coeurs et que ça se reflète dans leurs actions au quotidien.
Call for an international mobilization
In 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. They were convicted of murdering two men during an armed robbery at a shoe factory in South Braintree, Massachusetts, United States. Their arrest was a part of a bigger anti-radical campaign led by the American government. The State’s evidence against the two was almost totally non-existent and many people still today believe that they were punished for their strong anarchist beliefs. Given the nature and diversity of anarchist groups around the globe, we have proposed a week of common action rather than a single campaign on a specific day making easier for groups to be able to organise an event within a longer target period. Therefore, we call on everyone to spread the information about the Week for Anarchist Prisoners among other groups and communities and think about organising event(s) in your city or town. The events can vary from info-evenings, screenings and benefit concerts to solidarity and direct actions. Let your imagination run free.
Till all are free.

Vers la fin des années 2000, après qu’aux États-Unis des cellules d’ELF et d’ALF se soit fait décimer par une vague de répression, au Mexique, des actions directes et des sabotages se faisaient de plus en plus courants (voir l’extensive chronologie dans Rabia y Acción n.9, Énero 2012, México). Plusieurs restèrent anonymes, mais plusieurs furent aussi revendiquées par l’ALF, l’ELF et des groupes/cellules anarchistes. Ces actions prirent de plus en plus d’ampleur au cours des années, et plus récemment il y a une tendance marquée vers une critique anti-civilisation dans les positionnements et les réflexions de nombreuses revendications d’actions ainsi que dans leurs cibles. Un de ces « groupes » a particulièrement retenu l’attention en plus de créer une certaine controverse, non seulement au Mexique, mais aussi internationalement, de par la consistance, l’envergure et le caractère de leurs actions et revendications…

An update on the situation
From Share the Bulb
On the evening of may 27 a Bulb supporter was arrested while biking in the city of Albany and remains in custody. Their next hearing is Monday morning…
Friend and comrade Elliot was arrested Thursday evening as he left the Albany Bulb, located near Berkeley CA in the east bay area of California. Elliot is a longtime organizer and has been involved in a variety of struggles and campaigns. Recently, Elliot, along with others, have been working with residents of the Albany Bulb, a squattter encampment that is been under attack from the police and local government. Learn more at sharethebulb.org.
Elliot’s capture comes in the wake of the arrest of two of the last bulb residents and the destruction of their house, as well as the arrest of two other Bulb supporters. Elliot is being hit with multiple trumped up charges, including possessing tools to escape from jail and possession of weapons, both felonies, as well as two misdemeanors. His bail is set at $65,000, which means that we need $6,500 to bond him.
On the Morning of May 29 at 4 AM the camp at the Albany Bulb was raided by about 20 police officers from Albany PD, Berkeley PD, and the Alameda County Sheriffs department. They arrested, cited, and released the 2 remaining residents Amber and Phyl, as well as one supporter. They also demolished most of their camp and took the tent of the solidarity emcampment. Their dogs were taken into custody and many possessions were seized by the police. All 3 are safe and out of jail now.
This is not the end of our fight.
