- 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.
“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!”

- 07.02.2019: Comrade of the Fermento in Zurich (CH) arrested and kept in pre-trial jail for three Month
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
