TABULA RASA
WALL NEWSPAPER
AGAINST PRISON AND ALL FORMS OF CONFINEMENT
IRREGULAR PUBLICATION
No.1. MAY. 2019.
CAEN
We are against prisons, borders and all forms of confinement because we believe that the only remedy for the evils of this society is freedom, the destruction of all oppression and exploitation, the destruction of the very foundations of this social order.
We want to make them pay for the latest insult to our freedom, the construction of the new prison in Caen, as far as we can: take on this repressive system, especially all the companies, public services and associations that make money from the construction or day to day administration of new prisons, detention centres, those who participate from far and near in administering and controlling our lives for the profit of the State and capital.

Florence, Italy: Last hearings of the trial for the “Panico” operation

The hearings from 15 to 18 July, 2019, are confirmed, but due to the absence of one of the judges the sentence (scheduled for July 22nd) could slip, by a maximum of one week, apparently.
For Giova, Paska and Ghespe under house arrest, was asked the transport by their own means for the hearings, therefore without an escort. For Paska has also been asked to temporarily move house arrest to a house near Florence.

Bremen, Germany: Prison Van Torched in Solidarity with Imprisoned and Fugitive Comrades

“The prison is looking for you”…”We have found you”
During the night of the 4th-5th of July we torched a Bremen JVA (Bremen Prison) truck in the fenced TÜV NORD parking lot in Bremen-Walle.
JVA Bremen is characterized by miserable conditions, the cells are overcrowded, rain leaks in and medical care is either extremely bad or completely denied.
But we do not want to make a plea for the reforming of criminals or even to strengthen the illusion that there is such a thing as a ‘humane’ or ‘just’ prison.

Livorno, Italy – Solidarity with the prisoners on hunger strike

Solidarity with the prisoners on hunger strike!
Close down AS2! All free!
For a month two anarchist prisoners, Silvia and Anna, have been on hunger strike against very harsh prison conditions. They are demanding to be transferred from the AS2 unit of the prison of L’Aquila, where they are now, and the closing down of the unit. In recent weeks many other anarchist prisoners joined their struggle, while revolts and protests in prisons increased this month. The Department of prison administration, however, responded by transferring another anarchist, Natascia, to the AS2 unit. It’s necessary to break the silence and isolation. Solidarity and freedom for all!

Banner:
‘Solidarity with the prisoners on hunger strike!
Close down AS2! All free!’

Germany , Berlin : The Fight for Liebig34 goes further

The Court hearing for the eviction of our anarcha-queer-feminist housing project will take place on the 20th of september 2019. Padovicz wants to snitch away the house, while the politicians are trying to keep our mouths shut. Both parties are awaiting a final court decision. We do not let any cis-men decide about the future of our anarcha-queer-feminist project, cause simply no one should decide about us, but ourselves.
The last weeks in Nordkiez
Lateley, the presence of cops in our neighbourhood increased massively. Helicopters are flying daily and nightly over our roofs. Multiple police vans drive through our streets and ID-controls become part of everyday normality.
Also, during our self-organized neighbour fest in which a lot of children participated, the cops reacted in an aggressive way, trying to ruin our day. Several persons sympathising with our project, have been arrested and taken into custody. The arrests of these friends were very violent and sexist. Whether it’s about getting a coffee in the morning at the other side of the street or having dinnerin front of our house, the cops find ways to intimidate us. The system of state tries to silence us by all means. As a consequence, we face daily confrontation with the cops. However, their provocation is not something we allow to set us back or keep us small. It is something that encourages us to resist.
We are aware that their violent behaviour is purely a reaction on our mobilization in our joint-fight against gentrification, patriarchy and capital. All of this, shows us, that our battle against “the city of the rich and powerful” is effectively starting to worry the establishment.

Athens,Greece : If voting could change the system, it would be illegal

We are a self-organized anarchist collective of immigrants, who started our activities in athens a few weeks ago as a new collective, generally we are struggling in greece for about 3 years.
Yesterday, 8 July, we put posters on walls of exarchia area to show our opinion on the slavery political game which the regime calls: “election”
In our opinion, even if bourgeois democracy counts the votes, in the best condition you choose with what kind knife to be killed!
In fact, voters are like sheep who choose with what kind of knife to be killed; in our opinion: if voting could change the system it would make it illegal for us.
what you have as right to vote is not freedom to choose your future but it is legitimizing the slavery that the system imposes on you.
Our opinion for real change is not voting or being a reformist inside the system, in our opinion real change can only happen when the molotovs in our hands burn the cops in streets. In our opinion if from today the immigrants take guns in their hands and armed struggling in streets, real change for our situation will happen, not Leftists getting power as a government; bosses are bosses, no matter left or right!

Canada, Hamilton, Ontario:Parole Board Moves to Keep Ceder Locked Up Over Summer

Update from Hamilton, Ontario on the decision by the parole board to keep Cedar locked up over the summer, in the face of massive community outrage.
After waiting close to five days, we finally got news on the outcome of Cedar’s parole hearing. At about 4:56pm Monday, July 8th, after days of deliberation, we got the news that the revocation their parole stands. After submitting over a dozen affidavits to the parole board; after hundreds of community members spoke out and took action against the criminalization of pride defenders; after a day of solidarity that resulted in over fifty actions taking place across several continents in support of queers fighting back, the parole board nonetheless decided to keep Cedar in prison for the rest of the summer.

France – A recycling skip immolates itself just before summer

Call to yellow skips for a flaming summer 2019
On the 16th of this month [June], like every Sunday evening, I went out carrying a load of waste from this world of shit (eco-responsible, as they say).
Inspired by other yellow ones in revolt and in a final attempt to free myself, I approached some construction machinery in the yard of the future eco-neighbourhood just before sacrificing myself with fire.
I took a while to burn because of the heavy rainfall of the previous hours, but a little more fuel made me happy.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece : ONE MORE DENUNCIATION ABOUT the DETENTION CENTRE OF PETROU RALLI (prison migrants )

Athens, Greece : ONE MORE DENUNCIATION ABOUT the DETENTION CENTRE OF PETROU RALLI (prison migrants )

On June 20ieth, we went to the detention center of Petrou Ralli. We met 23 detained women. Women invisible to the mechanisms of the state and to the majority of its citizens. In violation of the most basic provisions prohibiting the imprisonment of minors, we found 3 minors from war zones and difficult areas. This is generally the case, because until the bureaucratic mechanism moves, to mandate by the one and only prosecutor of unaccompanied minors, the minimum shelters for minors, to include these girls in their list of registerd minors, when vacuum positions are found, time passes by… So they are forced to experience the inhumane conditions of heinous imprisonment, with tragic consequences for their health and their development. The two girls, like others before, had requested the assistance of the police to take them to a shelter, to end up in the cells of Petrou Ralli, as the most secure version, until a place was found for them, somewhere else. The third one was with her mother. 15, 16 and 17 years old, respectively.
The conditions are explosive and the testimony that should be noted, because, as every summer, more difficult days come, is as follows. Women told us that for three nights they could not sleep a wink, because on the terrace, next to their cells, the policemen had dragged and tortured imprisoned men for long hours. Their screams of pain were terrifying. They were desperately calling for help. Another testimony which complements this tragic event, is that three days ago, male prisoners had set fire to their cells and they were violently forced by the Authorities to evacuate them. The women were brought out of their cells, too, because they were hard to breathe. What happened, must be taken into account by the collectives of the antagonistic movement that have contact with male prisoners. Let them be alert, for with the heatwaves, which make life unbearable, in this hellhole, men rise up and torture intensifies.

France : Burning Equipment and Reflections Against Those Who Make Use of It

[This text from Indymedia Nantes deals with two attacks near Saint-Étienne, a small city near Lyon. The first targeted BTP Eurovia  and the second the Delmonico quarry. Links with pictures and mainstream press articles below.
[Although I don’t agree that workers are as responsible for the harm their work causes as the bosses and owners, or that all work is as disgusting as being a prison guard, this text still feels like a worthwhile contribution to a conversation about the limitations of a class-struggle centric analysis. Because this text is right on that if those with access to the means of production won’t destroy them, the rest of us are going to have to.]
We still remember skimming the assemblies, the furious streets, the blockades, the occupied squares. We remember diving into the posters, the leaflets, and the journals [1]. We were open in our words and encounters, avid and impatient to have it out with this world we were born into and that makes us die a little more each day. Raised on the morality of class, we approached the workers.Were they not our allies by definition? We dreamed of Haymarket, while most others dreamed of their buying power and a good retirement. We wanted to burn it down, they wanted to work better. We were too restless at work to not become disillusioned through contact with the exploited. This text is a distant echo of the nocturnal arson of May 14 and 16, 2019. These were attacks against work, of course, but also against all those who contribute to perpetuating it.

Drugs: English/French/Crotian

I like drugs. How couldn’t I? Why should I give up something that makes me feel good, that can alter my state of consciousness at various levels as I abandon myself to a sense of psychological and physical well-being. After all, it is easy to feel weak and helpless once we realize that we are not living in the best of worlds but in an environment where we are continually absorbing the conditioning of our tastes, feelings, opinions and impulses and are even called upon to contribute to their constant redefining in one way or another.
In a world of massacres and slaughterers where we struggle against all roles including those that we continually adopt ourselves, once we realize that attempting to attack will not lead to victory, it is not strange that between one militant activity and another, one discussion and another, we seek refuge in an altered state of consciousness in which to create an illusion of struggle and attack. In my altered state I feel fulfilled, the need to dig deep, to go all the way, has disappeared. Finding such solace helps me to put up with this world, live my life. And if, while I am enjoying this altered state of consciousness I find myself in the company of others with whom I normally exchange rivers of words on the use of fire and against all the rules, the result is even better and more acceptable.
Like everywhere else, drugs are spreading rapidly in so-called social relations among comrades. Although we are well aware of the effects of certain substances on interactions between individuals (lowered inhibitions, joviality, withdrawal from reality etc.), turning them into passive subjects like so many others, they are still widely used.
