Callout for solidarity with anarchists accused in Aachen bank robbery cases
Solidarity with anarchists arrested during investigation into several bank robberies in Aachen, Germany
Over the past weeks, various persons have been arrested in Spain and the Netherlands under orders of the German criminal police. A person has been extradited to Germany, another is held in the Netherlands. The investigation is related to various bank robberies in 2013 and 2014 in the city of Aachen.
Are they guilty or innocent? In a society that tends more and more to a dictatorship of money and control, we don’t really care to know the verdict of their courts. The State and its judicial system have always proved to be vigorous watchdogs of the dominant ideology, always marginalising, punishing, capturing, torturing and even assassinating those who are consciously opposed to it, or just those who aren’t lucrative for it and are therefore deemed disposable.
Our hearts and thoughts are with anyone who seeks new paths, who chooses not to be a slave of the status quo, and tries to discover the practical possibilities of that choice; with anyone who fights against the different forms of authority, and attacks the structures and institutions that make oppression of the poor and the undesirable increasingly real.
From everywhere, domination sabotages anyone who lives free and self-determinedly. Let’s fight for reconquering our freedom by sabotaging domination.
FREEDOM FOR THE COMPANHEIRAS
FREEDOM FOR ALL
In solidarity, we carry on…
beginning of July 2016
As “Czech” Anarchist Black Cross and the AntiFenix Collective, we call for international solidarity actions against the repression of anarchists in the so-called Czech Republic. This repressive wave is labeled Operation Fenix – 8 people are accused or charged, some with possible life sentences, and with many more harassed by police, interrogated, raided, devices confiscated.
Our call for international solidarity is to support all of charged and affected, but also in particular to support Martin, an anarchist who was entrapped and accused of preparation of a terrorist attack, all planned by two state infiltrators. He has been locked away already almost 14 months in terrible conditions, and in response, he has just gone on hunger strike. Especially in places where you have Czech embassies or consulates, you can show that borders can’t stop anarchist solidarity.
Although Martin’s English isn’t very good, he will be very happy to receive any mail, here is his address:
