Report from Naam (Melbourne):
On International solidarity week for anarchist prisoners 23rd to 30th August anarchist black cross Melbourne conducted a practical letter writing workshop with some good i9nsites from one of our members at IRL INFO SHOP https://www.facebook.com/IRLinfoshop/ in naarm Melbourne on the land of the Wurundjeri & Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation. we show solidarity with youth in prisons Western Australian government must stop breaching international laws and standards by locking children in solitary confinement and Solidarity with those detained (children, women, and men) by immigration and Customs Enforcement and the families you are forcibly kept from. You are held in those for profit gulags, whose aims are to maintain a rotten nationalist- racist- capitalistic social order. The August 21st National Prison Strike called for strikes and boycotts in and against those so called immigration detentions for a reason, to acknowledge for the world that our struggles are not separate.
Anarchist prisoners are not often well-known people, even though they might be long term activists. Their ways to fight back oppressors and wrongdoings are not necessarily following the current laws of their location, which is judged by some authoritarian organizations. The vast amount and diversity of cases of anarchist prisoners is surprising to many.
