MAPUCHE, ANARCHIST & REVOLUTIONARY INT’L SOLIDARITY NIGHT

FROM EAST TO WEST: Representatives of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society and the Native Youth Movement (Kanahus Pelkey – NYM) from across Turtle Island will be converging in Toronto on December 7th, 2013 to speak on the ongoing struggle for indigenous sovereignty and in solidarity with the Mapuche struggle in so-called southern Chile.

***IN BENEFIT of the ELSIPOTOG LEGAL FUND for Mik’Maq Warriors defending the land against Fracking in so-called New Brunswick, Klanada.***

In memory of Mapuche WEICHAIFE, ALEX LEMUN murdered by Chilean police during a land reclamation in Wallmapu.

“Our freedom does not have a price; neither do our hearts and conscience. It is because of these we seek it all…, where borders exist solely for those who respect them.” – Marcelo Villaroel, Anti-Authoritarian Political Prisoner charged under the “Security Case” in the hands of the $hilean State.

Within the framework of International Human Rights Day, our people continue to be displaced, imprisoned, and annihilated by colonial capitalism and the State supported by it. We have nothing to celebrate and everything to gain from our liberation. Let us break the chains that keep us prisoner, and struggle to take back the land and our warriors/comrades captured by the State.

FREE THE MAPUCHE POLITICAL PRISONERS IN WALLMAPU!

***FREE MONICA CABALLERO & FRANCISCO SOLAR IMPRISONED BY THE SPANISH COLONIAL STATE!!**

FREE MARCELO VILLAROEL, FREDDY FUENTEVILLA, JUAN ALISTE & ALL ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN/ANARCHIST POLITICAL PRISONERS IN $HILE!

**************************************

END MI’KMAQ WARRIORS’ SOLITARY CONFINEMENT
FREEDOM FOR LAND DEFENDERS AND POLITICAL PRISONERS OF WAR

CALL SUPERINTENDENT JONAH BRIAN – Demand Germaine Jr Breau is released from solitary confinement! (506) 532-7885

Southeastern Regional Correctional Centre in so-called New Brunswick has just placed Germain “Junior” Breau, 22, into solitary confinement. This is part of the ongoing mistreatment of Indigenous peoples inside of the Prison Injustice System, and a slap in the face to Land Defenders and Warriors standing up for the peoples against fracking. Germain was arrested on the violent raid by RCMP on Oct. 17th, has been held in detention without trial ever since. The RCMP continues to enforce the violation of treaties and the colonial courts continue to abuse the Indigenous peoples of these territories who defend the water and the land. Contact the Superintendent Jonah Brian to demand Germain’s release from solitary.

“Our warriors are still being mistreated in the system, JUSTICE for our political prisoners of war.” Suzanne Patles, member of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society

CALL SUPERINTENDENT JONAH BRIAN – Demand Germaine Jr Breau is released from solitary confinement! (506) 532-7885

BREAKING: [Spain] Comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar Left in Pre-Trial Custody & 3 Others Released on Bail

November 17th, 2013

After nearly a week since our comrades’ arrests on November 13th under the hands of the Spanish Anti-terrorist Police, Judge Eloy Velasco of the National Court ordered the “provisional custody” (otherwise known as pre-trial custody or remand) of comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar. We do not know how long the requested time is for this pre-tial detention in order for the “investigation” to take place.

The charges that were finally laid on the accused are as follows:

*Illicit Terrorist Association
*Placement of Explosive Artifacts (Specifically at the Church of Zaragoza)
*CONSPIRACY to Commit Terrorist Acts (Alleged plans to attack the Monastery of Montserrat in Barcelona).

***[Translator’s Note: This has not been the first time Conspiracy charges have been laid against Anarchists in recent years, which have been readily used in North America to criminalize anarchist organizing, most recently with 20 people charged under Toronto G20 Case in 2010. For a full(er) list, see Crimethinc.]***

On the other hand, Italian comrade Valeria Giamoni, Gerardo Damián Formoso and Rocío Yune, were released upon bail after remaining incommunicado for 5 days; their passports were retained and must appear in court on a periodic basis.

We greet the three comrades that are now on the street after having been under the hands of the disgusting Anti-terrorist police.

It is expected that our comrades Francisco and Monica will enter into the brutal regimen that are the F.I.E.S isolation units, where they will be dispersed throughout different and distant prisons across Spain. We will not remain indifferent or comfortable with our comrades in the claws of Power. We should note that our comrade Monica maintains a vegan diet, which she was able to maintain throughout her duration in political prison in 2010, and therefore should be considered under the current circumstances, where ever she may end up.

We ask that if any comrade has information on their whereabouts in prison, to please forward information to publicacionrefractario[at]gmail.com (in Spanish) [or in English to wccc_98 (at) hotmail.com], as well as how long the investigation period would be and any other information.

INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY & REBELLION WITH MONICA & FRANCISCO!
COMRADES WE WILL NOT FORGET OR LEAVE YOU ALONE!!

END IMMIGRANT DETENTION IN CANADA

Since September 16, 2013, 191 migrant detainees are on strike in Lindsay, Ontario’s Central East Correctional Centre, a maximum security prisons.

The striking immigration detainees in Lindsay are demanding:

  • An end to indefinite detention
    • An end to maximum security detention: Immigration detainees should should not be held in maximum security  provincial jails, and must have access to basic services and be close to family members.
    • An end to indefinite detention: If removal cannot happen past 90 days, detainees must be released. Canada’s current immigration detention system is in direct contravention of the United Nations’ recommendation on indefinite detention.
    • Extend access to legal aid for detention reviews
    • Overhaul the adjudication appointment process for detention review.
  • Improvement to prison conditions
    • Better access to medical care and social workers
    • Cheaper phone calls and access to international calling cards (many have family overseas)
    • Access to better food, like the food on the non-immigration ranges
    • An end to constant lockdowns
    • Keep the improved canteen program going
    • Better access to legal aid and legal services
    • Additionally, detainees are demanding that the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) grant specific requests to move individuals to facilities nearer to their families, legal resources, and social services.

Some of the prisoners are long-term detainees, people immigration enforcement cannot deport but will not release. Others have been designated as ‘high security’ based on prior criminal history but this can be as little as an arrest that has not led to conviction. Some people have been in jail for over 7 years because Canada unlike the US and UK has no limit on how long someone can be held prior to deportation.
