I wish this new catastrophe to be done over mourning and demonstration of volunteerism and 
social solidarity (which must be said to be overwhelmingly touching) and a reason for 
reflection. Deep reflection on the quality and hierarchy of social values. Because of the 
past major disasters, the only thing left was unfortunately more arbitrary. ---- After the 
disaster what? ---- One moment we see the disaster. The fiery havoc that swallowed whole 
areas. Dozens of victims, hundreds of injured countless dead animals, a skull spot ... And 
as a report a cynical finding once again. Thousands of cottages (or permanent residences) 
were built on the coastal forested areas of the Attica area with the classic, modern Greek 
cousin of the beach. Because if you only have access to your beach you are a "player", a 
fool, counting on the stock market of new social values. Whole coasts are cut off by roads 
and accessible only from houses, villas and luxurious residential complexes.

Less or more, petty bourgeois, middle-aged and big-grand houses monopolize beaches because 
this is the epitome of the modern Greek mogas I build cottage on the wave. They are 
protected by beaches, protected by the gutters, and are mounted on the rocks. Why so? Why 
the contrary is a preaching of misery, nagging and mistreatment of those who envy. 
However, in the event of fire, anyone can cut off. Anyone without access, no specific key 
to specific doors and docks leading to the sea. Doors and pillars of buildings that were 
also built in their majority buildings on burned areas. In off-plan settlements. Where the 
roads were equal for the communication of the houses between them, and with the regional 
at the best.

An endless criminal circle that is currently shocking because of the dead of the dead. Not 
just the wind or weather phenomena. It is mainly the prevalence of social values in the 
social field. The widespread devaluation of natural wealth, deprivation of wildlife, and 
the perception that it exists for the enjoyment of "viewing plots". I wish it was only the 
rich. I wish it was only the big investment plans to open roads, mining, wind turbines or 
hotel and casino construction. Then it would be easier. It would be clearer for 
responsibilities, more "class" crime. Unfortunately, it is more complex. More complicated. 
And more inconvenient. More inconvenient because the conflict with the dominant social 
values in dead time means taking on the political risk of becoming socially disliked.

Reproducing the phrase "no state" that is often heard is nothing more than a reflection of 
the diffused dependence on the state mechanism that is responsible for saving you even if 
Revelation is made. An understanding that partly conceals the nuclear belief that man can 
control everything. This is the most overwhelming deployment of the most arrogant 
anthropocentrism. At the same time, it is a tragic irony when "where is the state" comes 
to be heard in an environment where vulgar personalization, total indifference to values 
beyond the demonstration of neoplustism, obsolescence of collective acquisitions as well 
as vertical or horizontal corruption and interdependence with persons and services of the 

I wish this new catastrophe to be done over mourning and demonstration of volunteerism and 
social solidarity (which must be said to be overwhelmingly touching) and a reason for 
reflection. Deep reflection on the quality and hierarchy of social values. Because of the 
past major disasters, the only thing left was, unfortunately, more arbitrary.

While the means of surveillance and repression available to our various political 
opponents (States, capitalists, fascists, etc.) are developing at an alarming speed, the 
need to demystify and democratize good practices of digital self-defense is becoming more 
and more difficult. in addition to striking. ---- Alternative Libertaire, as a libertarian 
communist organization, must at the same time take care of its own self-defense and that 
of the numerous and numerous oppressed whom it intends to defend. This guide is an answer 
to this problem. A lucid answer, pedagogical and public, that can be diffused in our 
networks sympathizers, trade unions, associative, affinity. ---- If the social and 
libertarian revolution is delayed, the "  digital revolution She is on her way. Attempting 
to photograph a snapshot on which to concentrate efforts would be both a mistake and a 
waste of time. In addition, we are not the first to want to work on our digital 
self-defense and many high quality documents, regularly updated to take into account 
technological developments, already exist. The main objective of this guide is to state 
the few great timeless principles of digital self-defense, in order to deconstruct certain 
recurring illusions and to provide a correct theoretical basis, while referring to more 
complete and carefully selected references for all that pertains precise and valid 
practical instructions at a given moment (choice of this or that software, etc.). A static 
guide referring to dynamic references. In doing so, we hope to update this guide as seldom 
as possible.

Lastly, following good practice does not guarantee absolute protection or absolute 
anonymity. Following good digital self-defense practices implies broader and growing 
collective protection with the number of participants. Yes, the more numerous and 
numerous, the more powerful the monitoring tools will have difficulty to access our 
personal data and those shared in our circles of social life (including the activist). 
This notebook does not claim either to give the infallible means or the only means. The 
goal is also, in all good practices of popular education and self-management, initiate the 
debate, share, build and change the arguments. Happy reading !

Solidarity with the prisoner strike against the slaughter in the USA! ---- >From the 
solidarity groups Jena, Leipzig, Berlin and Cologne of the Prisoner Union, supported by 
the FAU-IKA. ---- Rally on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, 5:00 pm in front of the US Consulate 
in Leipzig ---- The US prison system is holding and exploiting about two million people, 
of which a disproportionate number are non-whites (People of Color) and migrants. Nearly 
half of them are forced to work under the US Constitution. It is nothing less than the 
modern continuation of slavery. ---- The protests and strike movement of the prisoners 
against this system, which has been going on for years, is to be continued from 21 August 
to 9 September 2018 with a new US-wide prisoner strike. As Solidarity Groups of the 
Prisoner Union and FAU-IKA, we call for support for this struggle. Come to the protest 
rally in front of the US Consulate in Leipzig on Tuesday, August 21st, starting at 5pm! 
Send protest letters to the US Representations in the FRG! Send letters to the prisoner! 
Find your own forms of solidarity!

The labor strike movement of prison slaves

Since the 1970s, a massive expansion of the prison system has taken place in the USA. 
Increasingly stringent laws are aimed at the mass imprisonment of the black, colored, 
migrant and poor populations of the United States. The forced labor behind bars has its 
legal basis in the 13th article of the US Constitution. Slavery was abolished in 1865 with 
this article. However, it was a loophole left: No one must be forced to work, unless he 
was legally convicted of a crime.

Against these conditions, a broad and very combative prisoner movement has formed in the 
USA. Prisoners of various national, ethnic, religious and political backgrounds organize 
themselves behind bars, supported by a broad solidarity movement from outside. This 
movement ranges from liberal NGOs to anarchist groups.

Since 2010, a strategic reorientation has taken place within the US prisoner movement, 
away from hunger strikes and other forms of protest, to labor strikes. Thus, the prison 
industry is to be paralyzed and put under such pressure that the massive detention and 
exploitation of prisoners for the state and the bosses no longer worthwhile. As part of 
countless local and regional strikes and uprisings in US detention centers, prisoners 
called for a US-wide prisoner strike against prison slavery on September 9, 2016, the 
anniversary of the 1971 Attica prison riots. The strike was largely organized by the 
prisoner organization Free Alabama Movement, which in 2015 made mass strike strikes with 
its text "Let the Crops Red in the Field".

There is also a strong solidarity movement from outside. During the historic 9/9 strike, 
many actions took place in prisons and in the cities. Just over a year later, on August 
19, 2017, an action weekend of the Millions for Prisoners with demos took place in 
Washington and 16 other cities. For fear of action, even behind bars, all detention 
centers in Florida and South Carolina have been confiscated. Of these more than 120,000 
prisoners were affected and thus the entire jail operation was paralyzed for the days.

Reason and demands of the prisoner strike 2018

The reason for this year's strike call was the uprising that took place on April 15, 2018 
in the Lee Detention Center. In the uprising, seven prisoners were killed, dozens were 
injured, of which 22 prisoners had to be hospitalized. Prisoners accuse the officials of 
contributing to the violence through long-term prison policies and then not having 
prevented them and subsequently even having abducted medical aid. After the uprising, 
permanent detention was ordered in detention centers across South Carolina for several 
weeks, leaving prisoners out of regular access to their inmates, showers, recreational 
facilities, and tasting outside their own cells.

As a result, the US-wide prisoner collective Jailhouse Lawyers Speak called on 23 April 
2018 for a nationwide prisoner strike from 21 August to 9 September 2018. This is to name 
the real reasons for the uprising and its deadly consequences, namely the unspeakable 
conditions of detention and living and the despair of the prisoners. The goal is also that 
the prisoners no longer be agitated against each other, but fight together against the 
prison system. In addition, the strike will continue the prisoner strike movement of 
recent years.

The choice of data is not random. On August 21, 1971, George Jackson, a black 
revolutionist, was shot dead trying to escape. As a result, protests began, culminating in 
the Attica prisoners' uprising on September 9, 1971.

The list of demands of the strike is:

1. Immediate improvement of prison conditions and a prison policy recognizing the humanity 
of imprisoned men and women
2. Abolition of prison slavery. All those who have been jailed under US jurisdiction must 
be paid according to the wage level of the relevant state or territory.
3. Abolition of the "Law on the Reform of Prison Rules", so that prisoners really have the 
opportunity to defend themselves against grievances and violations of their rights.
4. Abolition of the "Law on the Truth in the Judgment Process" and the "Law on the Reform 
of the Judgment Process" so that prisoners are given the opportunity of rehabilitation and 
probation. No one may be sentenced to death by immobilisation or have to serve a sentence 
without probation.
5. An immediate end to the practice of indicting black and brown people with 
disproportionately high sentences, sentencing them to disproportionately high sentences 
and denying them probation. Blacks can no longer be denied probation because the victim of 
the crime was white, which is a problem especially in the southern states.
6. Abolition of the "Criminal Law Penalty Laws", which are primarily directed against 
blacks and brown people.
7. Prisoners may not be denied access to rehabilitation programs in their detention 
centers on the grounds that they are labeled as violent offenders.
8. Financing rehabilitation services in prisons for long-time prisoners.
9. Reintroduction of education grants in all US states and territories.
10. The right of suffrage of all citizens imprisoned on remand or in custody and of all 
ex-prisoners shall be respected. We demand representation, all votes count.

Jailhouse Lawyers Speak calls for the following actions: hunger strikes, sit-ins, labor 
strikes and boycott of any consumption by prisoners.

The appeal and catalog of demands of the Jailhouse Lawyers Speak are supported by, among 
others, the following organizations: the Committee on the Organization of Imprisoned 
Workers of the Revolutionary Industrial Workers of the World Union, the People's and 
Citizens' Rights Organization The People's Consortium, of the Alliance Millions for the 
Prisoners' Human Rights, as well as numerous socialist, anarchist and anti-racist 
organizations, anti-police, anti-prison and prisoner solidarity organizations, etc.

On the way to the 21st of August

Since the announcement of the US-wide strike, prisoners in numerous detention centers have 
declared their support. There have even been protests to mobilize. For example, four 
groups of prisoners in Missouri have signed an agreement and organized a sit-in strike 
that escalated to the extent that the prisoners invaded one of the huge production 
facilities, destroying their production facilities and machinery, and used slogans such as 
"21. August "on the walls. Prisoners in Texas and Florida also held protests on June 19, 
the anniversary of the abolition of slavery.

Outside of the detention centers, the preparations for the strike in the US are in full 
swing. For months, legal aid structures, an information campaign and solidarity rallies 
have been planned and organized. Articles, zines, notebooks and calls circulate throughout 
the United States.

Let us also support the prisoner strike in Germany!

Announce the prisoner strike! Use own channels and bring it to the press!

Come to our rally on August 21 at 5pm in front of the US Consulate in Leipzig. Organize 
your own rallies in front of US Representations in your cities.

Send protest letters to US Representations in Germany.

Send solidarity letters to militant prisoners in the US.

Strengthens the prisoner movement in Germany with support for the prisoner union and other 
active prisoners.

During the period from the mid-eighteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth 
century, anarchism has gone from being virtually non-existent as a political movement in 
Portugal to being the principal version of radical left-wing thinking in the labor 
movement of the country . ---- The first Portuguese unions were not anarchist in nature: 
the Associa ca o dos Oper a rios (Labor Union) schimatistike in Lisbon in 1851 as a mutual 
aid association with workers to contribute to a common fund to insure themselves against 
disease and old age, the Centro Promotor dos Melhoramentos das Classes Laboriosas (Center 
for the Promotion of the Rights of Working Classes), created in 1852, not only managed a 
similar fund but offered education and pushing for this legislation, the Associacao dos 
Trabalhores da Região Portuguesa (Union of Workers of the Portuguese Region) was created 
in 1873, while serving essentially the same purposes, organized strikes and helped 
disseminate a new party, the Socialist Party.

The open anarchist groups began to appear in Portugal at the end of the nineteenth 
century. The anarchist Uniao Democratica Social (Union for Social Democracy) and Grupo 
Comunista-Anarquista (Anarchist-Communist Organization) was formed in the 1880s, while 
Grupo Revolucionario Anarquista II de Novembro (Revolutionary Anarchist Organization of 
the 2 nd November) organized during of the 1890s. By 1902, the anarchist Federação 
Socialista Livre (Concerned Socialist Federation) was trying to coordinate action among 
the many different groups in Portugal.

Anarchist libraries began to open their doors to the working class at the beginning of the 
twentieth century. The Grupo de Propaganda Libertária in the city of Porto, a group 
created in 1904, not only published its own newspaper, but also provided reading material 
to the   Centro e Biblioteca de Estudos Sociais (Center for Social Studies ) that worked. 
A number of anarchist publications were available to workers, including forms such as O 
Protesto-Guerra Social , A Comuna , O Libertário , and Comuna Livre (Free Commune).

Portuguese migrants in Brazil participated in the simultaneous spread of the anarchist 
movement in that country. The Portuguese immigrant José Marques da Costa anarchist 
articles published in journals of northern Brazil  A Revolta (The Revolution) , O 
Trabalhador (The Worker), Voz do Povo (People's Voice) , and Renovacao (Reload). Neno 
Vasco was born near the city of Porto and migrated to Brazil at an early age, returning to 
Portugal to study at the university and then settling back in Sao Paulo, issuing the 
anarchist newspaper Terra Livre(Free Land) in 1905. In Brazil, he worked with Italian 
immigrants and thus met the ideas of the classical Italian anarchist Errico Malatesta, and 
then devoted himself to the translation and dissemination of Malatesta's works in Portugal 
and Brazil. Pinto Quartin was born in Brazil by Portuguese parents and migrated to 
Portugal with his family, working in the Portuguese version of the Terra Livre newspaper 
and the Brazilian radical newspaper A Vida .

The Portuguese anarchists generally followed the current of anarchist communism as 
analyzed by classical anarchists such as Pyotr Kropotkin. According to this philosophy, 
every property, including factories and farms like the houses, should be the common 
property of residents in small communes as part of a federation, forming a loosely 
organized entity. Thus anarchism is similar to Marxism in the demand for the abolition of 
private property but differ on the immediate requirement concerning the abolition of the 
state, rejecting the position on the provisional establishment of a workers' state in the 
form of the proletarian dictatorship. In the anarchist communist perspective, the whole 
state machine to be destroyed immediately after the expropriation of wealth from the 
workers who will govern themselves through free associations - the dictatorship of the 
proletariat would delay the creation of these self-managed, self entities. Anarchists 
Communists believed that all the legal rules should be abolished, among them the criminal 
code and title deeds, and how salaries should be repealed and replaced with equal access 
to the common goods produced mainly in the local economy where workers they alternate 
their work to agricultural, constructional and spiritual pursuits. In the anarchist 
communist system, everyone will perform a small piece of different types of work so that 
everyone will be a farmer, industrial worker, teachers,

The anarchist communist position for the expropriation of wealth was so widespread in 
Portugal during the early twentieth century that the idea of socialization of production 
was represented in the organization of trade unions. CGT created the Liga Operária de 
Expropriação Económica to attack the capitalist system through "expropriação total e 
completa" (complete and absolute expropriation) of the means of production, organizing the 
workers to study how each industry preparing them for the social revolution - finally, the 
Liga was organized in a federal council organization in different industries with specific 
workplaces to report directly to the CGT leadership.

As a radical, class movement, anarchism was sometimes able to build bridges between 
disparate communities, even when differences arose. This solidarity-based overcoming of 
differences was not confined to the anarchist movement in Brazil. At the beginning of the 
twentieth century, a Portuguese activist named Big John Avila, who belonged to the radical 
Industrialists of the World (IWW), which had a number of anarchist members, mobilized the 
"Brazilian Negroes" (probably immigrants from Cape Verde) to strike in Rhode Island. In 
New Bedford and the Massachusetts Fall River, radical workers' unions joined members from 
Portugal and Cape Verde. Anarchism in Brazil was very diverse. The Portuguese anarchist 
José Marques da Costa has worked closely with Domingo Passos, a native of native and 
African origin, known as "Brazilian Bakunin," an activist who spread anarchism across 
Brazil as the leading form of the labor movement. was imprisoned by the Brazilian 
authorities for his subversive actions. The African-Arab activist Natalino Rodrigues was 
an anarchist who organized the workers in bakeries, was constantly being persecuted by the 
authorities, a campaign to liberate him had the support of anarchists across Brazil. an 
activist who spread anarchism across Brazil as a leading form of the labor movement and 
was imprisoned by the Brazilian authorities for its subversive actions. The African-Arab 
activist Natalino Rodrigues was an anarchist who organized the workers in bakeries, was 
constantly being persecuted by the authorities, a campaign to liberate him had the support 
of anarchists across Brazil. an activist who spread anarchism across Brazil as a leading

subversive actions. The African-Arab activist Natalino Rodrigues was an anarchist who 
organized the workers in bakeries, was constantly being persecuted by the authorities, a 
campaign to liberate him had the support of anarchists across Brazil.

Solidarity between Portuguese-speaking anarchists of a different race was not limited to 
Brazil. The same caste system that existed in Brazil and distinguished between negros , 
mulattos and brancos was also found in the Portuguese colonies in Africa, such as Angola 
and Mozambique. In the town of Mautus in Mozambique, once known as the Loirenz, the 
Portuguese and Mozambican workers were organized, some of them spreading anarchist ideas 
or reading incoming issues of A Batalha . A number of anarchists in Laurens Marques at the 
beginning of the twentieth century who admired the Spanish anarchist pedagogue Francisco 
Ferrer y Guardia created Grupo Libertário Francisco Ferrer(Francisco Ferrer's Liberation 
Organization) in 1910. Of course, the Labor movement in Lourgnano Marques was racially 
segregated. Within this separation, however, forms such as O Emancipador created a space 
of solidarity not only in its pages but also in working class centers such as the   Centro 
Socialist Revolucionário (Center of Revolutionary Socialism). The essence is that radical 
circles could offer an environment where differences could be overcome to a considerable 
extent, as in the case of Brazil.

In Portugal, the trend towards solidarity pushed Portuguese anarchists to help Spanish 
anarchists organize themselves. In 1923, anarchist activists formed the União Anarquista 
Portuguesa (Portuguese Anarchist Union) or UAP and began publishing the newspaper O 
Anarquista (Anarchist), which published a proposed program for an Iberian anarchist 
congress in 1926 - 1927, an Iberian anarchist congress it actually took place and led to 
the creation of the Federación Anarquista Ibérica (FAI), an influential organization that 
supported the armed resistance to the rise of Franco.

In Portugal, the rise of Salazar's dictatorship was resisted by anarchists who suffered 
persecution. The Portuguese government created the concentration camp in Tarapac in Cape 
Verde in 1936, capturing and sending anarchist activists to the camp, many died as a 
consequence of the lack of adequate medical care. Anarchists have created secret 
resistance organizations such as Aliança Libertadora de Lisboa(Liberation Alliance of 
Lisbon). As censorship in Portugal banned the publication of anarchist newspapers, the 
anarchists carried smuggling subversive Brazilian newspapers to the country to be read by 
the laborers or listening to them read aloud. Anarchist resistance tried to assassinate 
Salazar in 1937 but failed. The rise and dominance of anarchism within the Portuguese 
working class had a declining course as repression increased after that.

We are back again with a week of global solidarity with anarchist prisoners. Since last 
year, there have been many changes in our country, but a general trend is heading in a bad 
direction with more repression against anarchists not only in Europe but also throughout 
the world. Given this, we call for the sixth annual solidarity week. ---- Late last year 
many people gave reports from all over the world that were different and we hope that this 
year the tradition will grow even bigger. We need to support our comrades! Use this week 
to spread information about the anarchists who are behind bars. Support prisoners from 
other countries in your area or use these days to raise awareness of the mechanisms of 
repression and how anarchist communities can rise against them! Build a culture of 
security, support your local anarchist prisoners and fight back.

What can you help?
Conduct prisoner visits to correctional facilities, detention centers and detention of 
local police. Provide support, reading material, and whatever assistance you can give them.
Make visits and contact detainees' families and tell their family members that you support 
and help them. Especially for families who depend on family members who are detained and 
receive multiple impacts.
Write and send a letter of support for solidarity, tell them they are not fighting alone.
Continue to campaign for their existence to the public. Making artwork, putting up banners 
or posters, murals or graffiti, demonstrations and other forms of unique and creative 
solidarity. Upload with hashtags #bebasanpejuangrakyat , #kaliantinself , and 
#bebasankawankami .
Engage in all activities and demonstrations carried out by the anti-criminalization 
solidarity network.
Support advocates and any legal aid agencies involved in advocacy in the realm of litigation.
Prevent more of our comrades from being detained by helping every fugitive and political 
escape. Become their spokesperson and notify the movement network that they are safe, be 
uncooperative towards the police, and provide accommodation and assistance needed for them.
List of prisoners
We compiled not only a list of anarchist prisoners but also activists, farmers, laborers 
and other civilian elements who were imprisoned and were in court as a result of their 
involvement in the movement. We believe that the Anarchist Black Cross also needs to help 
and campaign for non-anarchist prisoners as a form of building a broader solidarity 
movement. The Black Cross also openly supports those who have carried out illegal 
activities as a revolutionary goal which is accepted by anarchists as something that is 
justified and demands release even for those considered guilty. This list will continue to 
be updated until 29 August 2018. After that, each prisoner's status and condition can be 

The Indonesian Black Cross is a network for information networks, a campaign of 
solidarity, medical and legal assistance to criminalize anti-authoritarian activists, 
which was formed in May 2018 in Indonesia. We consist of anarchist militants, students, 
ordinary civilians, health / medical people and field activists who are engaged in 
activities for the purposes we have described above.
