  • 12.05.2019 Attack against the prisoners union – call for solidarity
    Gefangene, welche sich im Knast gegen die Zustände wehren, werden immer wieder mit Repression durch die JVA‘s und Behörden konfrontiert. Seit Gründung der GG/BO im Mai 2014 ist Repression für uns als Soligruppen deswegen ein Dauerthema. Mal fällt diese mehr, mal weniger heftig aus. Manchmal, in seltenen Fällen, bleibt sie auch komplett aus. Auf die Aktivitäten der Gefangenen reagieren die Knäste immer ein wenig unterschiedlich. Wenn wir allerdings derzeitige Entwicklungen beobachten, sehen wir uns mit einer neuen Situation konfrontiert: bundesweite Angriffe auf GG/BO–Strukturen durch die Knäste und Behörden.

    Seit mehreren Monaten wird der Schriftverkehr zwischen uns, den Soligruppen Berlin, Jena, Leipzig und Nürnberg und engagierten Gefangenen massiv unterbunden.” … weiterlesen auf indymedia

  • May 2019 Zürich: Pre-trial jail prolonged for anarchist

    fermento: “Die Untersuchungshaft des Gefährten, welcher am 29. Januar 2019 verhaftet wurde, wurde anfang Mai um weitere 3 Monate verlängert. Ansonsten hat sich nicht viel an seiner Situation geändert. Er sitzt nach wie vor im Bezirksgefängnis Zürich und die U-Haft wird nach wie vor mit Flucht- und Kollusionsgefahr begründet, wobei die Untersuchung noch nicht abgeschlossen sei.
    Nach wie vor kann Post über die anarchistische Bibliothek an den Gefährten gesandt werden. In einem öffentlichen Brief schrieb der Gefährte auch, was ihn interessiert: „Ich freue mich über Zusendungen von Nachrichten und Analysen über das Weltgeschehen, von anarchistischen Publikationen (Briefumschlag tauglich), sowie natürlich von Briefen von Gefährten und befreundeten Bekannten. Ich verstehe Deutsch, Französisch, Italienisch, Englisch und etwas Spanisch und Türkisch. Selbstverständlich beteiligt sich auch die Staatsanwaltschaft beim lesen.“

  • 09.04.2019 NoPolGBW – no new police law in Baden-Württemberg!

    The local (BW) government is planning to pass a new police law giving the police more rights and tools for repression including trojans to hack your computer, jail without a court sentence, DNA analysis and more. There is a campaign forming against this planned law under the name #NoPolGBW. If you understand German there is a good summary by the IMI, Informationsstelle Militarisierung in Tübingen, what this is all about: “Polizeigesetz Baden-Württemberg: Erneute Verschärfung? Unendlichkeitshaft, Onlinedurchsuchung, DNA-
  • 18.03.2019 For a world free of cages! Banner action for the International Day of Political Prisoners in Freiburg in Breisgau
    We found this article about a banner action at the International Day of Political Prisoners that we thought was worth sharing in a shortened version.
    indymedia:
    “For a world free of cages! Banner action for the International Day of Political Prisoners in Freiburg in BreisgauOn the ocassion of the International Day of Political Prisoners on the 18th of March 2019, two banners were dropped in Freiburg in solidarity with all people enduring prison and repression. […]Repression and prison are especially used against people based on skin colour, nationality, il_legalisation, wealth and political leanings. Prison thereby serves a societal function of projecting and distancing of unwanted people and behaviours and punishing them. However, security is not achieved through punishment and exclusion – rather, the state strengthens its monopoly of violence by criminalizing certain actions, thereby reproducing social hierarchies and injustices. The prison system is thus incapable of producing justice, but achieves the opposite.We do not want to dedicate this day “only” to so-called political prisoners, but to all people who experience repression and prison. Prison humiliates and individualizes, and is supposed to tear those affected out of their contexts and depoliticize them. All repression is political and to recognize this is an important step towards a comprehensive criticism of punishment and the state. We strive for a world in which no jails are needed!”(full article here)

  • 07.02.2019: Comrade of the Fermento in Zurich (CH) arrested and kept in pre-trial jail for three Month
    fermento website:
    3 Months of pretrial detention are now imposed on our comrade, with the following explanation: risk of flight and danger of collusion. Now he is in the district prison of Zurich BGZ. The risk of flight is being used as an argument because, among other things, another comrade is still on the run for the story of the radio station Waidberg.The imposition of 3 months of pretrial detention is the highest application unit, every three months pretrial detention has to be confirmed by law anew by a custodial judge. For the comrades that aren’t familiar with the Swiss pretrial detention regime: in Switzerland it is common practice that pretrial detention has a quite long duration, sometimes even years. It is quite possible that they want to hold our comrade in prison till an eventual trial.If you want to write our arrested comrade, contact the anarchist library Fermento either directly, per email or post. However, letters that are about his case will be held back by the state prosecutor and not be handed out to him by the prison, the same goes usually for books and large publications.Anarchistische Bibliothek Fermento

    Robin`s process is going into the second instance

    The defendant Robin was convicted to a fine for supposed assault, but neither the defendant nor the prosecution was accepting the sentence.
