BANNER DROP IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE HAMBI 9. 

'Solidarity from so-called Victoria, Australia, with imprisoned comrades from the Hambach forest occupation in Germany. On January 22nd, cops raided tree houses and barricade structures in the forest, and took 9 people into custody. We took this photo as a small part of the international day of solidarity with the Hambi 9 on February 3rd. The occupation has for years now been an amazing and inspiring site of resistance against the continued expansion of Europe’s largest coal mine. It is part of a global struggle against ecological destruction brought on by capitalism. Freedom for eco-defenders...

UPDATE ON THE PRISONER PROTESTS IN SOFIA.

The hunger strike of around 30 prisoners in Sofia prison has ended. A statement has not been released, but it is understood that prisoner direction Krestev has reopened the prison shop. The closing of the prison shop is in fact what sparked the hunger strike. Despite the ending of the hunger strike, symbolic protests against corrupt and abusive prison director Peter Krestev continue. UNTIL EVERY PRISON IS A LIBRARY.

RAMSEY ORTA PLACED IN SHU FOR 60 DAYS. 

Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed the death of Eric Garner at the hands of the NYPD, has been placed in solitary confinement for 60 days. 'Orta is currently serving a disgusting four-year prison sentence after he was targeted by the NYPD for filming the death of Garner at the hands of the NYPD back in 2014, sparking riots, protests, and uprisings across the US.' Ramsey is facing relentless targeting and abuse by the prison guards. Since he began serving his ludicrous 4 year sentence, he has been repeatedly assaulted and attacked and placed in solitary confinement on multiple occasions. 'Someone...

WRITE TO ANIMAL RIGHTS PRISONERS!

We previously posted about the charging and imprisonment of Sven Van Hasselt for their involvement in the SHAC campaign, detailing his 5 year prison sentence and partner Natasha's 2 year suspended sentence. We would like to encourage all of you to set some time aside today to write a letter for Sven and Natasha. We do not want either of them to feel alienated, and want them to know that they are not alone. They were so fearless in their involvement in the SHAC campaign, and now we must support the both of them in this period of state repression. Sven's address: Sven van Hasselt A3021ED HMP...

STATE REPRESSION – ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST TARGETED. 

This morning we received an anonymous email from a British activist. We would like to quote a few of their words. “Yesterday I was sentenced for going into "free range" broiler facilities, to film and expose the truth, of what free range really is.  ... When I was arrested at my home it was done by 8 police officers, with 4 marked police cars outside my home and 2 of the officers were actually armed. I was alone at the farm and 17 years old at the time. ... It was a sentencing hearing for a guilty plea to “criminal damage”. ... 240 hours of unpaid work and an order...

MORE THAN 30 PRISONERS IN SOFIA PRISON ARE ON HUNGER STRIKE!

Prison director Peter Krestev, who we have mentioned before in a previous call for solidarity for prisoners, is now attempting to stop symbolic protests for basic human rights in Bulgarian prisons by closing down the prison shop. 'Prisoners have not been able to buy food or cigarettes for 4 days now. In reaction to this some prisoners have started a hunger strike demanding to meet the Ministry of Justice and representatives from the National Prison Authority.' The Bulgarian Ministry of Justice has failed to take notice of repeated and legitimate complaints about Krestev, who was previously...

NEW ANIMAL RIGHTS PRISONERS.

NEW ANIMAL RIGHTS PRISONERS. 

Sven and Natasha were sentenced yesterday. Charged with "conspiracy to blackmail" on their involvement with the highly successful SHAC campaign, Natasha was given 2 years in prison suspended for 2 years (which means that her conditions will be horrible and alienating and that if she breaches ANY she could be sent to prison) whilst Sven was given 5 years in prison. This is a show of the state repression and their protection of capitalism. This is another example of how the system works to protect itself, to put profit over anything else, to eliminate the threats. Sven, Natasha and many others...
