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 involved in SHAC were true warriors against vivisection. They were fearless and they were effective. They run a campaign so incredibly powerful that the government had to make up laws to stop them.

Don’t let the state win and do not let Sven or Natasha feel alienated.

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 dismissed from the position as prison director due the long list of human rights abuses he carried out. The situation is now getting worse. Upon being reinstated in his position, Krestev is now protecting a narco gang who beat, rape and torture prisoners.

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 to ‘Not linger within 200m of any private land where the intent is for the raising or slaughter of livestock for the next three years’, which makes me unable to even join a Save vigil.”

This is just one of the many examples of how the system works. The system will try to silence us, it will try to quiet us down and to make others blind to reality. The system will favour capitalism over any ethical standpoint. Profit over anything.

It is on us to retaliate and to show we are fearless. It is on us to stick our middle finger the the legal system, to the capitalist system and to the government structures. We are born free and leaderless. We are born without hierarchies.

Let this be your start to smash the barriers that we are forced to in society. Let this be the story that makes you realise we are not working within the system, but to tumble the system until it falls.

Smash all hierarchies, hierarchies between human and non human animals and hierarchies within society.

Solidarity with our troops.

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.

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 in Ramsey’s support network visited him and said he looked really pale and was in a bad space. He saying he being continually harassed and violated. Ramsey’s legal support are doing their best, but this abuse is taking a toll on Ramsey, and he needs our support more than ever. We are asking folks to share this post. We are asking folks to write Ramsey and let him know he is not alone.’

PLEASE WRITE TO RAMSEY!!!!

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.

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 everywhere!’
