Aderiamo alla campagna nazionale per l’abolizione della contenzione perché non accettiamo lo status quo come un dato naturale e irreversibile, ma invece come un risultato socialmente e storicamente determinato, su cui abbiamo il dovere di intervenire. read full story / add a comment

After the killing of Michael Brown in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri in the late summer of 2014, protests erupted, and the Black Lives Matter spread across North America to protest police violence, too often systematically directed at poor and racialized communities. The massive police presence at these protests, with weapons and armoured vehicles that looked and felt like major military deployments, made it clear to all that something fundamental had taken place in policing practices and strategies. The intensification and extension of the coercive and security branches of the state was well-known since the declaration of the ‘war on terror’ in 2001, and the subsequent leaks of official documents by Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and others. The hardening of the state in its day-to-day operations at the most local levels could now be seen everywhere by all, in an increasing confrontation with the democratic rights of assembly and protest.

Lesley Wood's recent book, Crisis and Control: The Militarization of Protest Policing (2014), locates these developments in a longer term perspective in relation to the spread of neoliberalism. Analyzing police agencies, strategies and practices from the mid-1990s to the present, she identifies a range of the structural and political forces that have led to the militarization of policing, particularly in North America, but also in trends that extend to Europe. This involves detailing a new matrix in the relations between the security, national police and defence apparatuses of the state with local police forces and the defence and security industries. Professional police associations and their various conferences and conventions have become important nodes for the spread of ‘best-practice policing’, in the form of kettling, barricading, infiltration and pre-emptive arrests, usage of new anti-protest weaponry, security screening, local intelligence-gathering capacities and the like. But also as sites where the case is made for an increase in police budgets, more capital intensification of policing and thus for accumulation by the ‘coercive’ industries (which define modern urbanism as much as the so-called ‘creative’ sector).

In a period of sharpening inequality, permanent neoliberal austerity, and hard right forces gaining ground, the logic for a further militarization of policing, securitizing of cities, and curtailing and limiting protests. In her book, Wood seeks not only to map these developments in North America through time, but also to expose the contradictions in the new forms of policing in capitalist states, and begin to pose how social and anti-capitalist movements will have to respond to ‘demilitarize our relations’.

A case that’s need highlighting is the case of Republican prisoner Willy Wong, he is held in Maghaberry Prison in Co Antrim. In March 2010 he was arrested along with another man and charged, eventually convicted of possession of a pipe bomb. He was sentenced very differently to the way Republican prisoners (and social prisoners) usually get sentenced. He was sentenced for an undetermined period, but after 5 years inprisoned it would be up to the Parole board when he is to be released. read full story / add a comment

Se ha preguntado ¿por qué los dueños de las farmacias no fueron encarcelados tras comprobarse que se coludieron para subir los precios de los medicamentos?, ¿por qué el hijo de Carlos Larraín a pesar de haber atropellado en estado de ebriedad y asesinar a una persona sin prestarle ayuda tampoco fue a la cárcel? ¿Cree que los políticos acusados de corrupción por caso Penta serán castigados?, ¿será porque a la cárcel solo van los pobres? A continuación reproducimos una columna sobre el régimen carcelario chileno por Periódico Solidaridad el año 2011, a meses del incendio en la cárcel de San Miguel donde fallecieron calcinados 81 reos. read full story / add a comment

Le Mexique est secoué par les révélations sur un massacre d’étudiant.e.s protestataires, le 26 septembre : 6 morts, 25 blessés et 38 disparus. On vient de retrouver les corps de 17 des disparus, exécutés vraisemblablement par des paramilitaires de mèche avec les pouvoirs publics.

Suite à l’attaque d’une manifestation d’étudiant.e.s mexicains dans le Guerrero par les forces armées de l’État, les organisations et associations qui soutiennent l’« Autre Campagne » en Europe manifestent leur solidarité.

Les nouvelles concernant les étudiant.e.s disparu.e.s sont alarmantes, puisque des corps ont récemment été retrouvés dans des fosses communes. Les témoignages convergent pour accuser les paramilitaires — de connivence avec les autorités locales — d’avoir commis ce massacre.

north america / mexico / crime prison and punishment / policy statement Sunday May 11, 2014 13:09 by M. Cinelli
We stand in solidarity with Cecily McMillan and will in the future. Cecily has been punished in order to make an example out of the Occupy movement. At the same time we must look at the bigger picture. By the end of today, another life, activist or not, will have been snuffed out by state violence. These include attacks against active militants involved in the struggle for liberation of oppressed peoples like Mumia Abu-Jamal, Maroon Shoatz and Leonard Peltier, as well as everyday people of color and undocumented migrants struggling to survive against the racist class divisions perpetuated by capitalism. There have been 239 people killed by the NYPD since Amadou Diallo in 1999, and 107 since Sean Bell in 2010; nearly all of them have been people of color. While we see that Cecily is a political prisoner, we recognize that the black and brown men and women who are systematically beaten on the street and thrown into prisons are political by default. Having historically been the most exploited of the exploited class, their well-being, survival and resistance to the widening gap between classes poses a threat to the capitalist status quo that the state seeks to insure. read full story / add a comment

Victoria Law es una fotógrafa, escritora y activista y madre. Involucrada en la lucha anticarcelaria desde 1996 coadyuvando en el éxito de iniciativas como Books Through Bars-New York City (Libros a través de las rejas-NY) un grupo que manda gratuitamente libros a presxs a nivel nacional en los Estados Unidos.

Desde el 2000, empezó a concentrarse en las necesidades que la lucha de las mujeres en prisiones requería, coeditando libros como Tenacious: Art and Writings in Prison (Tenaz: Arte y escritura en las prisiones) y facilitando que la escritura de mujeres encarceladas pueda ser leída fuera de las rejas, entre otros proyectos editoriales del mismo tipo. También publicó un libro titulado Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women (Resistencia tras las rejas: las luchas de las mujeres encarceladas, PM Press, 2009) y ganó el Premio PASS el 2009 (Prevention for a Safer Society, Prevención para una sociedad más Segura) otorgadio por el Consejo Nacional del Crimen y la Delincuencia.

En 1995 se involucró con ABC No Rio, un colectivo que administra un centro cultura en la parte sur del lado Este de Manhattan. Organizó, también, un grupo de fotógrafos activistas dentro de este mismo espacio, y desde entonces mantiene y coordina diferentes proyectos comunitarios destinados a jóvenes (exhibiciones, clases, etc).

En el 2003 colaboró con China Martens y crearon "Don't Leave Your Friends Behind," (No dejes a tu amigxs atrás), un taller que abordó las necesidades específicas de padres, madres y niñxs en los movimientos sociales radicales. Esta es una pequeña introducción de Victoria, que seguramente al resumir no hace justicia a la importante labor a la que ha estado dedicada. Regeneración Radio tuvo la oportunidad de entablar una pequeña charla que reproducimos a continuación.

Un "lunes negro" se titulaba un artículo de la prensa local haciendo referencia a lo acontecido en Montevideo, El procesamiento de cuatro militantes y la indagación sobre tres más despuntó la mañana de lunes 4 de noviembre. Se trata de compañeros que concurrieron a manifestar su indignación contra tanto arremetimiento a la memoria histórica de este país. Memoria histórica que tiene un gran encauce popular y sigue molestando, sigue siendo una piedra en el zapato para los de arriba.

En la tarde, por otro lado, en el Barrio de Santa Catalina en el oeste Montevideano, la guardia republicana cobraba la vida de Sergio Lemos, joven vecino del barrio. Todo un manto de impunidad cubrió el asunto, pero la resistencia del barrio fue lo decisivo. read full story / add a comment

La cárcel es la muerte social, cementerio de soñadores y pensadores, el preso es un muerto viviente, un zombi, su vida se reduce a dos planos. Acontecer biológico: Alimentarse, dormir, asearse, respirar, realizar las necesidades fisiológicas. Y la existencia psíquica: Un mundo de imágenes en el cerebro, un murmullo de voces al otro lado del auricular del muro, la ilusión, la esperanza, esa quimera que nos permite soportar el dolor y arrastra la pesadez de la materia de una vida miserable, aplazando esas fuerzas destructoras que se incitan a una situación definitiva. read full story / add a comment

There is only one way to achieve any justice for Trayvon Martin and the thousands of other young, African-American men and women who have been profiled, attacked or killed because they were walking or driving while Black, and that is to resist, to rise up, and to rebel... If we want justice for Trayvon Martin and if we want to confront racism, racial profiling and the wholesale attacks on young African-Americans and people of color, then we must bring it. There is no justice for Trayvon Martin under this system. Be prepared. What we have to say, all of us is: Justice is coming and we are all bringing it. read full story / add a comment

Hace unos años escribí un libro con testimonios de presos en varias cárceles del país. No sólo nada ha cambiado, sino que todo ha empeorado. Los reos siguen pagándoles impuestos a los matones —incluidos muchos de los guardianes— por un lugar para dormir; comprándoles el turno para llamar por teléfono, para entrar a la enfermería, para ir al baño, para salir al patio. Siguen asesinando internos y seguramente como sucedió en la Modelo, cortando en pedacitos el cadáver y botándolo por la alcantarilla del penal. read full story / add a comment

“Para este caso el señor juez ha considerado que asistir a la primera comunión de su hijo Felipe Nule, es un acto trascendental para el interno, y al Inpec lo que le corresponde es cumplir con la orden del señor juez”, con estas palabras el general Gustavo Adolfo Ricaurte, justificó ante los medios de comunicación su decisión de permitir la salida de la cárcel del empresario Manuel Nule, recluido en La Penitenciaría La Picota de Bogotá, con el fin de participar en la ceremonia de primera comunión de su hijo en Cartagena. Un viaje que costó cinco millones de pesos y que pagaremos los contribuyentes colombianos. read full story / add a comment
