Coronavirus, solidarity and anarchist struggle

In this time of crisis we find it important to position ourselves as collective in the debates around fight against Coronavirus as well as criticize the state measures that we find repressive and harming to society. But from the very beginning – we are not going to talk about conspiracy theories. We do know that COVID-19 is real, it poses danger not only to individuals but to society as well. After 2 years of the pandemic, there are only few people on this planet who didn’t get in touch with coronavirus: whether through relatives/friends/colleagues who were infected or many got it themselves. With Coronavirus killing at least 5.5 million people, we can skip the debates if it is more dangerous than flu.

Demo in memory of Oury Jalloh

Meeting point to travel together on January 7, 2022

Oury Jalloh was burned to death, bound hand and foot, in a Dessau police custody cell on January 7, 2005. It was only in the fall of last year that the Higher Regional Court in Naumburg decided to finally close the case of Oury Jalloh, despite the fact that they had another forensic report that showed beyond doubt that Oury Jalloh had already suffered severe bone fractures and life-threatening injuries in his cell before the fire. This joins a long list of monstrosities that reveal the extent of structural racism in Germany. Police, judiciary and politics refuse to clarify the situation and declare since the beginning of the investigation that Oury Jalloh had set himself on fire!

Solidarity needs trust – Thoughts on the outcall Domhöver from ABC Dresden

In various texts [2,3,4] the outcall of Johannes Domhöver (hereafter JD) is currently discussed. We also want to comment on this topic. A few weeks ago we learned by chance on the Internet that there are serious accusations of (sexualized) violence and rape [1] against JD, who is currently charged in the §129 trial Antifa-Ost for being part of a criminal organization.

When we speak of accusations against him in the following text, we do not mean the accusations of the cops, but the accusation of (sexualized) violence and rape.

We would like to express our solidarity to the person(s) affected. We find it incredibly important and extremely brave to go public with the issue despite the threats described in the outcall [1]. We hope that the affected person(s) will encounter a caring and open environment that will support them in their healing. At the same time, we are angry and shocked that JD’s violent behavior could be part of a scene for so long that stands up for human rights.

ABC-Belarus needs urgent your support!

Belarus remains in the media and as so often with negative headlines. Lukashenko makes the Erdogan and tries to put pressure on the EU with refugees. In this dispute, the EU also shows how undemocratic and inhumane it is and people die at the border.
Forgotten seems the uprising of 2020 against the dictator and the many people who are still exposed to repression in Belarus and are sitting in jail. And although all political and civil society organizations are smashed and very many active people had to leave the country for fear of repression, there are still courageous people in the country, who carry out anti-repression work and support prisoners. To it also ABC Belarus belongs, which supports anti-fascist, anarchist and other political prisoners in their fight against the dictatorship of Alexander Lukaschenko for over 10 years. ABC-Belarus is in urgent need of your financial support.

We will demonstrate on 13.11.2021 in Dresden for the abolition of all prisons! Meeting points: 3 pm at the deportation prison Hamburgerstraße, 5 pm at the Dresden Hammerweg Prison.

Solidaritea – letter writing café, Friday 29.10.21 5pm at Malobeo

Friday, October 29, 2021, 5 p.m. at the Malobeo, Kamenzerstr. 38

Prison is based on the system of punishment. This means that social problems are not negotiated, but locked away. Terms like re-socialization become a farce when we look at the conditions in prisons. The social isolation from friends, family and society is an aspect of everyday life in prison. There are few communication channels and hardly any opportunities to enter into exchange outside the prison walls.

We consult until the jail is history! – Rally at the deportation jail in Dresden, 14.10.21 at 5pm

Deportation detention contact group invites you to a rally at the deportation jail!

Because: We consult until the jail is history!

Deportation detention should be abolished – until then we need social
control and independent legal advice for those affected. This is exactly
what we want as a deportation detention contact group – and this is
exactly where the prison blocks itself, for example, by not reliably
informing detainees that we can support them, by making our visits more
difficult, etc.

10 Arguments against Prison

Prison means isolation, alienation, poverty and violence. Prison is a method used by the state to deal with social problems. Prison is supposed to punish, scare and “resocialize” you, i.e. reintegrate you into society. But you have hardly any opportunity for self-determination and are isolated from the rest of society. Every third person ends up back inside after release. Prison is a violent and monotonous place. The authoritarian penal system reinforces discrimination and economic exploitation. Jails therefore do not serve to reduce violent behavior between people, but rather reinforce it.
