In the wake of a year of explosive struggle on the west coast, anarchists and other rebels are beginning to feel the State's wrath in response. This strategy of repression has taken the form of countless arrests, overwhelming charges, raids, lengthy jail sentences, and even a federal grand jury.
Prison functions to repress those who choose to actively revolt against the State. Its walls, fences, disciplinary measures, surveillance system and guards exist to separate the incarcerated from their comrades and loved ones. Others, who defiantly chose to evade their would-be captors, face a different variety of alienation. Any effort at anti-repression in
the face of lengthy prison terms must be aimed at bringing down separation at all costs.
Join us at Station 40 as we celebrate the actions of currently imprisoned comrades, raise money in solidarity and hear from them in their own words.
We will read an exclusive statement from Jesse 'Brick' Nesbitt, in jail awaiting trial for his bold actions in defense of the SF Commune. We will hear a poems and words from Kali and Truth, already serving time for their participation in Occupy Oakland. We will also hear the statements from an anonymous anarchist resisting the anti-anarchist witch hunt in the Pacific Northwest.
Following these statements, we will facilitate a discussion about what it means to support the prisoners of uprisings against society, as well as how we can reconceptualize anti-repression activity to avoid the specialization and burn-out that traditionally follow from it.
Ephemera will be sold as a fundraiser. Donations are highly encouraged. All donations and funds raised will be donated to the legal funds and commissaries of Brick, Truth and Kali.
