This is a flyer that has been distributed during the demo against the
World Economic Forum in Bern (Switzerland) on the 21st of January 2012.
We are translating the communiques of Marco, Silvia and Billy about the
strike, they will be available soon.
“The three green anarchist prisoners held in the swiss jails decided to
join the week of mobilization against the World Economic Forum, which
will be held in Switzerland during these days. Marco and Silvia went on
hunger strike for 10 days, since 20th to 30th of january 2012. Billy is
abstaining from prison food and refusing to work (working is compulsory
in swiss jails), against the WEF but also as a response to their prison
conditions, more precisely for the liberation of Marco Camenisch in may
2012 and against the presence of divisory glass in the visits of
Marco Camenisch was incarcerated in Switzerland in 1991, he’s always
been active in green anarchist struggles; Silvia and Billy were
arrested, along with Costa, in april 2010 in Zurich for having tried to
attack with explosives the newly built nanotechnology research center of
We’re not surprised by the fact that this year in the schedule of WEF
they will also deal with nanotechnologies, because, as with all the
technological systems and even more the new technologies
(nanotechnologies, biotechnologies and cybernetics), they are not
neutral but subjected to the ones who manage economics, and a further
tool in the hands of those who hold power.
While the state and corporations bosses meet with each other to impose
the new world economic developments, in the labs experts and researchers
study to create new means with which to increase social control,
strengthen the soldiers, try to make our lives even more artificial and
automized, till the point of manipulating the living. Manipulations that
provoke devastating and irreversible effects in the earth equilibriums
and on human and non human animals.
We will always fight against those who are turning the earth into a
land of plastic and concrete, commodities and technologies, industries
and offices: a world devoid of life.
Against the State and capital which, with their dominating and
exploitative logics want human beings to be slaves, the animals to be
good, and the planet to be an infinite source of things to sack.
The WEF event cannot but increase our anger and desire to keep on
struggling, in and outside jails.
Solidarity with the prisoners on hunger strike!
Solidarity to Marco, Silvia, Billy and Costa.”
