R.I.P Taylor – Rage is our weapon 

Content warning – suicide (graphic), prison, violence, self harm, abuse, homophobia, transphobia

Taylor is dead. He was pronounced dead in prison at 10.37pm on Saturday 9th July after cutting his neck. He was meant to be on suicide watch but the prison failed him. We were informed by the prison governor at 3.30am on Sunday. His cell has been sealed by police and we await news of the autopsy. We will announce news of his funeral in the coming days and weeks.

The conditions in Bavarian prisons

Gezeichnetes Bild von Jan

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.

With power through the wall – against social isolation!


Call for a rally at the Chemnitz Women’s Prison of the anarchist feminist anti-prison alliance

On March 6, two days before the international feminist day of struggle, we will demonstrate in front of the Chemnitz Women’s Prison. We want to show the women and Queers imprisoned there: You are not alone! We know that you feel the oppression, the violence and the exploitation in our society. But we also see how many of you fight back, stand up for your rights and help each other – and we stand by your side.

The occasion for our rally is March 8, the international feminist day of struggle. All over the world, women and queers, i.e. people of other genders such as trans and inter people, are taking to the streets to protest the ongoing oppression by men and by a patriarchal system.We are standing shoulder to shoulder around the world against physical, psychological and sexual violence, against the multitude of murders of women, against unpaid domestic and care work, against lower pay, against discrimination, against being forced to marry and have children, against the ban on abortion and against many problems of the system in which we live.

New Year’s Eve before prison

The year is drawing to a close. In many places this year, too people fought for freedom and a life in dignity. How many of them are now imprisoned? No matter whether it is because of poverty, precarious living conditions or through their political struggle, no person belongs behind bars. On Dec. 31, 2021, let us show the imprisoned people that they are not alone. During the time of year that many spend with their loved ones the isolation and loneliness in prison is especially great. Come with us to Hammerweg prison (JVA Dresden), together we will break through the isolation of the gray walls. For a solidarity without borders!

Where: JVA Dresden, (Wanderweg Am Robinienhain)
When: 17 Uhr 31.12.2021

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.

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.

“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.

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.
