ABOUT CASO SUSARON:
Four antispeciesist comrades were arrested in September 2022 accused of setting a Susaron meat packaging plant alight, totally burning six lorries and partially burning a refrigerating unit. 

One of the four comrades was earlier this year sentenced to five years on tag and released to the streets, the other three are still awaiting trial. 

They need support, solidarity and money, so your donations here go a long way.

SOLIDARITY ALWAYS!!!!

JUNE 11th 2024 STATEMENT FROM MARIUS MASON – PRISONER SUPPORT

Marius Mason is an anarchist animal rights activist who has been in prison since 2009.

Marius plead guilty to being involved in an arson at a research lab, and to twelve acts of property damage. Marius release date is January 10 2027. 

Each year at June 11th, the international day of solidarity of with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners, folks remember our longest imprisoned anarchist comrades through words, actions and ongoing material support.

Marius recently published a statement,

“Dear Family and Friends
Thank you for coming together to support all anarchist prisoners still kept from freedom. Your positivity and encouragement have meant the world to me, literally, this past year. Now that it has been some 16 years away from the free world for me, your stories have allowed me to connect to campaigns as different as saving the commons in Georgia to ending genocide in Gaza. (….)”

JUNE 11th: ACTIONS IN SOLIDARITY WITH ANARCHIST PRISONERS.

Every year before June 11, the day of international solidarity with anarchist prisoners, people around the world take solidarity actions for all long-term anarchists prisoners.

PRESOS CASO SUSARON STATEMENT (MARCH 2024)

We received this statement from Caso Susaron back at the end of march, but we did not have the time to properly translate it until now. For that reason, some of it is a little out of date but still very much worth the read!

“‘The deterioration of your attitude is proportional to the tenacity of your idea’.

It has now been a year and five months since the punitive machinery of power has held us hostage. It has tried to put the necessary weight on our shoulders to bend our legs, and thus bring us to our knees.

There have been many events and experiences in prison, both physical and emotional, that have tried to push us to the limits of our capacities. It has always been useless when faced with our convictions, which have given us the necessary weapons to overcome every attack in this centre of extermination; because that is what prisons are. Concentration and extermination camps for those who do not fit into the pantomime of social peace.

In these human swamps we find a varied fauna of behaviours and individuals.
From brave anti-socials who chose to live as they were not supposed to, taking by force what was ‘not theirs’, in an unjust and cruel system. To authoritarian and insensitive freaks, devoid of any courage or empathy. Obsessed lovers of commodities and the superfluous.
Some are as much of an enemy as a policeman or a slaughterhouse worker.

In this period of captivity that we have had to assume, always with the nobility that is expected of a warrior conscious and proud of their actions, a lot of water has passed under our bridges. From the momentary release and subsequent appeal by the prosecution, which led to the recapture of our members Ita and Ru in November 2023. To the subsequent definitive release, almost a month ago, of Itamar.

Sentenced to 5 years of intensive probation, news that we received with great joy and happiness.
And so many events: multiple mobilisations of our modules, days in the violent punishments of Santiago 1, conflicts with gendarmes and prisoners, obstacles to see our families and partners. Multiple obstacles to our irreducible vegan stance, which the police have dedicated themselves to transforming into one more obstacle in order to harass us.

And so one thing after another. Good news and bad news that sometimes set the mood for a whole day or even a whole week. We’ve lived so much…

In prison it is difficult to deal with sorrow and anguish, because you have no room to let yourself slack. You can’t, for example, apply the classic ‘today I won’t get up’, ‘today I will rest and give myself a day to think’. Here the wheel doesn’t stop and you have to know how not to show weakness in front of screws and prisoners.

Here you either grow stronger or you melt into the mud that covers everything around you, and for that great flow of energy that is required; conviction in our idea and pride in our actions and decisions become more vital than water or oxygen. And they separate us from the constant wailing heard from the vast majority of the captives around us.

In these 17 months we have held together as an anarchic unit, forming a space of resistance and containment for refractory political individualities who have fallen into prison over time. This has greatly contributed to our wellbeing, as we have collectively fought with claws and fangs the emptiness, loneliness and ostracism that prison seeks to thrust like a dagger through our minds and hearts. And we hope that as we go free, or to other prisons, there will always be tender urban guerrillas ready to extend a hand to other comrades that will unfortunately but inevitably arrive. Because of one thing we are sure, war does not stop! And it has its consequences.

Therefore we call on all those who dare to attack authority and its symbols. To always maintain the absolute notion that prison and death are part of our path. Always on the run and capturing those ghosts, obviously with all the strategy and care that the love for freedom deserves. But, also being mentally prepared in case one day they hunt you down, so as not to lose your attitude and ideas that led you to act, when adversity strikes. And in this way you will never be broken by this meat grinder called prison. In the street and in the cana you can be yourself. And not be surprised when the sometimes inevitable consequences of confronting such a powerful and omniscient monster come knocking at your door.

The three of us are awaiting some expert reports and judicial resolutions that will mark for better or for worse our fate as prisoners. Longing for freedom and a night of shooting stars with all our might. But clinging to our unshakeable pride as animals at war with existence. Never willing to bend or beg for mercy.

Because if there is one thing we have sculpted in blood and tears after this season of kidnapping, it is that we are living in our own flesh, and in infinitely better conditions than what millions of non-human animals live in life imprisonment and with the death penalty included in the majority of cases, throughout this decomposed world. For them we act, for them we take on these harsh consequences and for them we remain more convinced than ever that the way forward is undoubtedly: fire, lead, exploitations and clandestine liberations.

And just as in animal liberation, which is the pyramidal base of our anarchic and confrontational thinking, so also for the whole sick society that governs us; its police, defenders and false critics.

On the eve of a new painful and angry commemoration of the 29th of March, the day of the young combatant. A date that commemorates the fall in combat of Rafael and Eduardo Vergara, 18 and 19 years old. At the hands of the civil-military dictatorship that ravaged these territories on 29 March 1985, the day on which the events took place.

The first thing we have in our boiling blood is the indomitable gaze, tanned by the suffering of Luisa Toledo. Exemplary warrior and mother of both young men. A courageous woman who has illuminated our path countless times with her clarity, bravery and love.

In this new commemoration we call to take to the streets with greater force. Not to let ourselves be infected by the defeated spirit of the society of the false critics and to burst into the numb context with the beautiful anonymous anti-social violence. And the majestic fire that illuminates the darkness of the streets. So that no corner remains unlit, no police station unattacked and no multinational unlooted.
That is our call without hesitation or ambiguity!

One year and five months later, we are still as firm as ever. And not a hair of our essence and character has moved us.

We call for the vindication of our prison, with gestures and actions. To the active and direct solidarity with the instances generated by our comrades in the street, to financially sustain these attacks that inherently drag down our circles and families.

Freedom to Lucas, Aldo, Javo, Paty, Syde, Kuyen, Mónica, Pancho, Leftraru, Don Checho, Gerardo Leal and Felipe Rios. And to all the prisoners at war around the world!

And don’t forget that comrade Don Sergio Olivares, an example of war against the system, is sentenced to 15 years. He is already serving his sentence in the ex-penitentiary. For those who want to contribute, show solidarity and vindicate this historic, guerrilla and respectable person.

Total liberation, whatever the cost.
Fire to all the prisons with their jailers inside.
War on existence!

CALL FOR JUNE 11: NO SEPARATE WORLDS

On June 11th of every year, we take the opportunity to remember and support Marius Mason and anarchist comrades who are serving long prison terms. We can show our support in different ways. Through actions, as well as donations to prisoners. Every year, the support crew of June 11th publishes a summary of the situation, a list of prisoners, what support is needed (read the full text in the attached link below):

“We once again approach June 11th, a day of remembrance and active solidarity, in a world of multiple crises and struggles for liberation. All of these are interconnected; there are no separate worlds. Across borders, languages, contexts, and identities, both catastrophes and victories of spirit and defiance reverberate around the globe. One environment is not untouched by another. The personal is not separate from the political. The positive project is not separate from that of destruction. Prison is not separate from the “free world.” Means are not separate from ends. Bridging these divides is a shared curiosity and commitment; bridging these divides is solidarity. This is not to flatten or oversimplify diversity and differences in circumstance, intensity, and consequence. Rather, that these different pieces are held together like organs of the body held by connective tissue. So we consider: how do we strengthen this connective tissue? How do we remain strong, yet supple and flexible? Bridges, connection, must also be built through time, especially in a world that moves too fast, from one crisis to the next. June 11th aspires to be one of these bridges: to build solidarity across borders, between movements, and among generations. Remembering and supporting long-term prisoners, as well as carrying on shared struggles, are two ways to strengthen this connective tissue. A stronger connective tissue will, in turn, bolster us against further repression…”

WRITING A LETTER TO A POLITICAL PRISONER – PRISONER SUPPORT

Writing a letter in solidarity to a political prisoner is not complicated. You don’t have to write a long letter, nor do you have to know the person you are writing to. There are however some things that are important to think about.

  • Don’t write anything incriminating, or about the person’s case. Your letter could be monitored by the guards. 
  • In your first letter you can write a little introduction of yourself, and your intentions to stay in correspondence.
  • Include a name and return address, both at the back of your letter, and the envelope. You don’t necessarily have to put your own legal name as recipient. 
  • Check what rules the prison have regarding mail to the prisoners. If the prisoner has s support crew, also check with them if there are certain things the prisoner needs, that you maybe can help with, like sending books. 

Check the list of political prisoners at our web site, for more info and details about which prisoners you can write to

IN SOLIDARITY!

LOVE AND SUPPORT

JACK HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM PRISON!

Directly from Jack’s support website:

“In a significant development in Jack’s legal battle, on March 29, a judge in Fulton County Court granted him bond! With this decision, Jack will be released from jail in the coming days, reuniting him with his loved ones and community. Fulton County often delays releasing people who have been granted bond, but we will advocate rigorously to ensure his quick release.

The cash bond amount was set for $75,000 and Jack was ordered 24-hour house arrest. There were a number of other conditions set by the judge that restrict Jack’s ability to work, engage in community, or even to meet with his lawyer at his office. 

As Jack prepares to transition back to freedom, continued support remains crucial. Letters of encouragement and books sent to him during his time in incarceration have provided a lifeline, and we encourage supporters to maintain this solidarity.

Additionally, sustained advocacy and legal efforts will continue, with funds raised being allocated towards covering legal fees and the high costs associated with home detention and the inability to work while under house arrest. 

Together, we are committed to ensuring Jack stays free!”

ACTIVIST ACQUITTED AFTER UNCOVERING A ZOOPHILIA CASE


The verdict has come for an activists charged with gross slander, in a trial in Sweden. The activist was accused of spreading a video clip in which a farmer talks about sex with non-human animals.


The farmer took the case to trial, saying that he was offended and wanted SEK 100,000 in damages. The prosecutor demanded six months in prison for the activist. The court acquitted the activist due to lack of evidence. It remains to be seen whether the verdict will be appealed.
