Today, as anarchists, we stand in solidarity with our comrades held hostage by the state. We remind ourselves too, to be brave and recognise the risks we, and others, take. We look to prisons as the epitome of state control. They represent everything that we see as necessary to burn in order for a free society. To note today especially is all anarchist prisoners worldwide, including our comrade Jock Palfreeman imprisoned in Bulgaria. We recognise the intersection between our struggle and the gulags run by so-called Australia, the proposed new men’s prison in (not the) Queensland and all other memorials to the prison-industrial complex. Fire to the prisons.
We’ve included some words by our comrade Juan Flores, held hostage at a Maximum Security Prison in Chile. They write:
“I will not live as the law tells me. I will advance on that path that other unruly people have already covered… that of action! Together with my comrades, together with my loved ones and those who give themselves faithfully and constant to the fight against the prevailing ideology, because I will not live in the shadows of resignation and indifference, I will experience the intensity of a life fully lived… authentic and free life… life without restrictions. I will boldly defend the possibility of developing myself without obeying.
Let’s give life to something, something strong that inflames and destroys everything that is at the service of power and its bourgeoisie… something that avenges and removes the dominant face with all our rage, seeking continuity, that the roar of chaos destroys the eardrums of all the powerful… we break his laws and we put an end to centuries of silence!!!
WE ATTACK AND DESTROY THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR REPRESSION AND EXPLOITATION!!! WE ATTACK AND DESTROY YOUR JAILS, POLICE STATIONS AND COURTS!!!”
