There is also a radio show from Elephant in the Room about the situation in Belarus from May 2021.

Text published by ABC-Belarus.

It’s been almost 10 months since the beginning of the protests in Belarus caused by falsified elections. A lot of our comrades have been put behind bars, many had to flee the country, public activity is hampered not only for anarchists, but for all dissident associations and groups. Below you will see a short update on the situation with the repressions in Belarus with a focus on anarchists and antifascists. We will try to release these updates at the end of each month.

Following the fire in the Moria camp, four juvenile refugees on Chios were sentenced today (Saturday) to 10 years in prison for “arson endangering human life” despite being minors. Two of the total of six defendants had already been sentenced in March at the Juvenile Court in Lesvos. After today’s verdict, international trial observers criticized the lack of evidence and spoke of an unfair trial in which the public was excluded. In front of the court building, dozens of people nevertheless showed their solidarity with the defendants.

June 11 – International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

Against another year of state encroachment, against the restriction of free movement under the auspices of “safety,” against the continued brutalization of our friends in prison, we call for a renewal of solidarity on June 11, 2021: International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners. For 17 years, June 11th has been an occasion for celebration, mourning, and revolt. It has been a moment to breathe, to remember those fallen and those in cages, to remind ourselves of why we remain committed to the Beautiful Idea of anarchism. Through our letters, demonstrations, fundraising, and solidarity attacks we keep the beacon lit for those who have given years of their lives for their conviction that the State is a horror against which we must wager our lives.

Abolish property, squatting is not a crime – rally at the Amtsgericht May 28th, 8:30 a.m.

Transpi am besetzten Haus am Basteiplatz

On Friday, May 28th 2021, the first of three lawsuits against four of a total of 12 people will be held at the Amtsgericht Dresden, accused of trespassing and property damage in the amount of approx. € 21,000 in the context of the occupation of Basteiplatz on August 24th, 2019. The occupation of the villa at Basteiplatz 3 was intended to draw attention to the unjust distribution of property and the unjust housing conditions in (not only) Dresden. The trial offers another opportunity to speak about the ongoing unfair conditions. To make it clear: it is not the squatting that is the problem, but this type of possession!

Solidarity with trans*people in prison and trans* liberation heroines #1 in cooperation with malobeo!

Tuesday, 02 June 2021 in malobeo! Kamenzerstr. 38, 01099 Dresden
18:00 Input: trans* people in prison & writing letters [EN/GE]
19:30 Dinner
21:00 The Compton’s Cafeteria Riot 1966 [Englisch with englisch subtitles] organized by malobeo! - alternative café and anarchist library

There is a Queer Pride in Dresden this year – loud, glittering, empowering. But not everyone can join in the celebrations. Our society is trans*-hostile, stigmatises people, pushing them into poverty, precarious job situations or homelessness. Trans* and non-binary people are often exposed to state repression and face jail. That is why they need our solidarity. We invite you to an event at malobeo! on 02.06.21 at 6pm. We want to give a little input into the topic and together with you we want to write letters to trans* people in prison.

Anarchist feminist anti-prison rally

On the occasion of the international feminist day of struggle we showed solidarity with the imprisoned people of the women’s prison Chemnitz. The rally in front of the prison started at 15:00. During the rally we were able to send greetings and music wishes to the imprisoned people from Chemnitz Prison and from other German prisons. In various speeches it was made clear that the prison system reinforces interpersonal violence, patriarchal power, racism, poverty and discrimination instead of solving social problems.

Ralley on March 15 – International Day against Police Violence!

We call on you, come to the rally on Monday, March 15, 2021 at 4 pm at Jorge Gomondai Square!

The year 2020 was marked by the death of George Floyd and the discussion about police violence. However, this sad event was neither an isolated incident nor a new development. Police violence has existed as long as police have existed. Police stops and violence do not happen by chance. Mostly people who are affected are poor, people of color, black people, homeless people, young people, people who do not fit into gender norms, people with mental problems, political activists.

“None is free until all are free!”- feminist anarchist anti-prison rally

When: 07.03.2021 at 3 pm
Where: on the parking lot in front of the prison in Chemnitz

Prison is a means for the state to deal with social problems. It is supposed to “resocialize” you. But you have hardly any opportunity for self-determination and you are isolated from the rest of the society. Every third person ends up there again after release, because it doesn’t help prisoners, but to secure the status quo. Prison is a violent and monotonous place. The authoritarian penal system reinforces discrimination and economic exploitation.

If you also think that prison cannot be a solution for individual and social problems, then come with us to Chemnitz Prison on 07.03.2021. There we want to get the prisoners a bit out of isolation, inform ourselves together about the conditions in prison and show our solidarity.
