“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.

New Year’s Eve to the prisons – We are not all, prisoners are missing!

Rally on 31.12.2020
at 14:00 at the deportation prison Hamburger Straße
15:30 at the prison Hammerweg (Fabricestraße)
Come with bicycles, scooters, wheeled vehicles!

Abolish all prisons! In Germany, too, social peace is secured with prison walls behind which people are locked away. They do not serve as protection against dangerous criminals. As a rule, it is mainly those who are too poor to buy a car and instead use public transport for free who end up in prison. Or those who are not allowed to work or cannot find work and are therefore forced to sell drugs.

“They threatened to rape, said they would take me to the Gestapo or the forest”.

CW: police violence and torture

Mikalai Dziadok story, handed over to Radio Svaboda.

On November 12, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported on the arrest of anarchist blogger Mikalai Dziadok. Then the press service of the department claimed that the detainee “actively cooperates with the investigating authorities and gives confessions.” At the same time, on the record, published together with the police press release, it is clear that Dedok was severely beaten. Now he is accused of organizing actions that grossly violate public order (Article 342 of the Criminal Code). From the person with whom Dedok managed to talk in the detention centre on Okrestina Street, “Mediazona” learned the details of the anarchist’s detention.

Call for a week of solidarity with anarchists and antifascists of Belarus 23-30 November

Anarchists have always stood up against tyranny and dictatorship. Regardless of the color of the flag, raised by authoritarianism over this or that corner of the planet. So it is not surprising that anarchists are actively involved in the uprising against the dictator Lukashenko in Belarus. From the very first days, with our determination and uncompromising attitude, we showed that anarchism is a revolutionary movement capable of changing the world!

Call: Prisons to community gardens and evacuate the camps!

Rally on 20.11.2020 at 4 pm at the Lager Bremer Straße
5 pm at Hammerweg (Fabricestr.)
Comes with wheels, wheelchairs, mobile bases!

The jails must perish! In Germany the social peace is secured with prison walls behind which people are locked away like every where else. They do not serve the protection from „dangerous criminals“. Criminal law, the courts, the police, the prosecutors, the prisons ensure exploitation and oppression. They do not serve „re-socialization“: outside of society people are not educated to act socially. Prisons stigmatize, hurt, humiliate and dehumanize.

The Soko Linx was a big celebration to find left-wing criminals. It seems to follow one of its predecessors the Soko MAG (Militant Autonomous Violent Offenders) from the beginning of two tausend. It is not particularly successful, as taz reports in an article on November 11.

Support the uprising in Belarus – FireFund crowdfunding campaign

By Anarchist Black Cross Belarus

For over three months, people in Belarus have been fighting against the authoritarian regime.

In 26 years, dictator Lukashenko has built a system aimed at suppressing any political life. The coronavirus and a number of economic problems have greatly changed what is happening in the country. In a few months, Belarusians have learned to self-organize. The presidential elections provoked a wave of the largest protest in the country’s history! But the tyrant does not want to give up his throne. At least 5 people were killed (some died under strange circumstances). Thousands of people were beaten and disabled by the violence of the police. More than 15 thousand have been detained and sentenced on administrative cases. More than 500 criminal cases have been initiated. At least 200 people are awaiting trial in the pre-trial detention center (including at least four anarchists and four anti-fascists).
