This is a call for international solidarity with anarchists in Mexico facing repression, whether they are stuck behind the iron bars of prison cells or hiding out for their freedom.
The state of Mexico has turned its attention to the blossoming anarchist space that has been actively attacking the state’s defense apparatus, the very foundation upon which it stands. Now is the best time to draw inspiration from the anarchist space in Mexico, and to show some love to our imprisoned comrades. The history of Mexico is very rich, and cannot be summed up in a text such as this. What can be mentioned, however, are the efforts that have been made to live in conflict with the state.

Yesterday February 17, marked the end of the 40 days of arraigo* decreed by the Attorney General of the Republic against our compañerxs Carlos López, Amelie Pelletier and Fallon Poisson.
During these forty days they tried to put together a case for Terrorism and Organized Crime against them, however, and despite intimidating and inquisitorial methods, they were unable to mount their case, so that at the end of the arraigo our compañerxs were released for lack of evidence. The Local Police of the Federal District has since detained them on charges of damages and attacks to public peace. Continue reading
TERRORISTS ARE THOSE WHO DEVASTATE AND MILITARIZE THE TERRITORY
CALL FOR A DAY OF MOBILIZATION
There are approximately 600 people accused, over a thousand investigated, dozens of people under several restrictions (home confinement, expulsion order), fines for hundreds of thousands of euros, a trial against 53 No Tav protesters, and several comrades who have been under house arrest for months now. These numbers show the repressive fury against the No Tav movement. This August, the Prosecutor of Turin added yet another chapter to their crusade: No Tav rotesters were investigated for “actions aimed at a terroristic attack” for one of the many actions taken against the construction site of Chiomonte – and for this reason subject to restraining measures.

It has been a while ago since we could present our new anti-prison magazine to you. What started with a discussion about how to get more news about prisoner support and anti-prison related topics into the world, soon transformed into a new magazine called ´Gribus´.
With this zine we try to show the importance of prisoner support and why it should be an integral part of the anarchist struggle. In Gribus #1 we highlighted some individual cases of prisoners along with some writings on prison abolition and alternatives to the prison system and the criminal ´justice´ system.
Hopefully this magazine has informed or inspired you to start thinking about the abolition of prisons, writing to a prisoner, or even burning down a prison. For the next Gribus we are looking for contributions from you. Unlike the last one, this edition is going to be in English. So if you have a nice article, some artwork, announcements, etc, to put into the next magazine, please contact us. Continue reading

Anarchist Black Cross Nijmegen (ABC-Nijmegen) en Anarchistische Groep Nijmegen (AGN) zijn in solidariteit met en op verzoek van Jock Palfreeman begonnen met het op touw zetten van een solidariteitscampagne voor hem.
Terwijl wij dit schrijven zit Jock Palfreeman inmiddels al meer dan 5 jaar gevangen in Sofia (Bulgarije) voor het helpen van twee Roma-jongens die werden aangevallen door een groep extreemrechtse hooligans. Palfreeman raakte hierop in een gevecht met de groep fascisten en twee van zijn belagers raakten gewond. Één van hen overleed later aan zijn verwondingen. Continue reading
Op woensdag 6 APRIL 2011 steekt Kambiz Roustayi zichzelf in brand op de Dam in Amsterdam. Geshockeerde reacties alom. Niemand wil graag getuige zijn van zoiets. Het helpt mensen maar weer herinneren aan zaken waarvan ze liever niet willen weten. Tijd om de doofpot opnieuw kapot te slaan en een heel ander vuur te ontsteken”.
Dit is het begin van de tekst van één van de vier artikelen (‘Leers, het vuur en de dood’) op grond waarvan de schrijfster begin 2013 door de Haarlemse rechtbank tot vier maanden cel werd veroordeeld.
