Solidarity Collectives – Update Solidarity work with Ukraine

The processes within the solidarity structures in recent weeks have not been easy, especially in the current situation. We have been involved in many discussions and have contributed our perspective. In terms of content, we share the statement regarding the conflicts of Operation Solidarity and the restructuring of the solidarity work in Ukraine. We continue our cooperation with the part of the Ukrainian structures working under the label Solidarity Collectives. And ask you to support this work as well.

Hi! We are the ‘Solidarity Collectives’ volunteer team. Previously, we worked under the name ‘Operation Solidarity’ but had to reformat our initiative. To find out why you can read our statement (https://telegra.ph/Solidarity-Collectives-Statement-07-04).

Solidarity Collectives is an anti-authoritarian volunteer network that unites several grassroots initiatives. We help the Ukrainian resistance movement to fight the Russian invasion, support progressive forces in this fight, help people who suffered because of the war and spread information about what is going on in Ukraine.

trans*people in prison need our solidarity!

What: Input trans*people in prison and writing letters together.
When: Friday, 24.06.2022 6 p.m.
Where: malobeo – Kamenzerstr. 38, 01099 Dresden

On June 25, there will be Queer Pride in Dresden again this year – loud, glittering, empowering we will go on the streets. But not everyone can join the celebration. Our society is trans*-hostile, stigmatizes people, pushes them into poverty, precarious job situations or homelessness. Trans*, inter and nonbinary people are often exposed to state repression and thus more often confronted with jail. So there are different problems that people are affected by. The discriminating society but also the prison system as such.
Therefore they need our solidarity.
We invite you to an event at Malobeo on 24.06.22 at 6pm. We want to give a little input on the topic and write letters together with you to trans* people in prison.

No one will be left alone – Fundraising to support imprisoned anarchists and antifascists in Belarus

It’s been almost two years since the 2020 protests in Belarus. The anarchist movement, just like the rest of activists and jounalists, has faced the biggest crackdown ever. Many activists had to leave the country, others got behind bars. ABC-Belarus continues its activity and needs support more than ever. At the moment, there are about 30 imprisoned anarchists and antifascists in Belarus and the number keeps growing.

Position on our solidarity work in Ukraine

A few days before the start of the war of aggression, we exchanged views with comrades from Ukraine, among others. What to do in case of war? For us it was clear that we would answer the call for help of our friends. We saw our possibilities of support very concretely in starting a fundraising campaign to support Operation Solidarity directly in Ukraine and people on the run outside. It was clear to us that there were activists who were already planning to stay and fight in Ukraine. With this, we clearly positioned ourselves and were also criticized for it. Therefore, in the following text we would shortly like to explain why we are doing what we are doing.

ABC Irkutsk (Russia) is renewing their work

Raised fist in form of a black cross, Russian Slogan in the middle, flowers in the background

Over the last couple of years, post-Soviet countries have been rocked by popular uprisings that have revived hope for political and social transformation — such as the popular uprising in Belarus in 2020 and in Kazakhstan in 2022. Putin’s regime has acted as a guarantor of dictatorships in both countries, and has strengthened the authoritarian regime in Russia itself over the past two decades. Since the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine, the Russian regime has conducted a particularly harsh crackdown on all those who disagree with militarism and war, imposing military censorship and tightening its grip on society’s throat in the country.

The conditions in Bavarian prisons

Descriptions from the Jamnitzer Solikreis on the situation in the Bayreuth correctional facility

We haven’t just known that prison sucks since today. We also know that the conditions in prisons are hardly bearable and that prisons do not achieve what they are supposed to according to the law. Nevertheless, it is always shocking to hear how prisoners are treated. The only daily contact with the outside world is the view out of the window. But there’s not much to see in Bayreuth, because the prison relies on double-glazed windows.
