Chile

Francisco Solar Domínguez

In the early hours of Friday, 24 July 2020, a number of searches took place in Santiago, Chile, and two anarchists, Francisco Solar and Mónica Caballero, were arrested, accused of several actions with explosive devices between 2019 and 2020. Specifically, both are accused of the double explosive attack that took place inside the Tánica building, a former Transoceánica real estate agency, in the wealthy municipality of Vitacura, on 27 February 2020, an action claimed by the Afinidades Armadas en Revuelta (Armed Affinities in Revolt). While only Francisco is accused of the shipment of two parcel bombs: the first against the 54th police station of Huchuraba, in the northern area of Santiago, which on 25 July 2019 caused the injury of eight policemen; the second to the offices of Quiñenco, against the former Minister of the Interior Rodrigo Hinzpeter, in the municipality of Las Condes, which arrived on the same date but was defused.

Previously, Mónica and Francisco were arrested on 14 August 2010, in Chile, in the context of the repressive anti-anarchist operation called 'Caso Bombas'. In previous years, at least a hundred arson and explosive attacks had targeted power structures. On 1 June 2012, all the defendants were acquitted. They were subsequently arrested on 13 November 2013 in Spain and charged with carrying out the explosive attack against the Basilica del Pilar in Zaragoza (2 October 2013). At the end of a lengthy trial they were finally sentenced to 4 years and 6 months. On 7 March 2017, they were released from prison and deported from Spain to Chile.

Juan Flores Riquelme

Juan Flores is serving a sentence of 23 years, having been convicted by the Chilean state for incendiary attacks in 2014 claimed by the Conspiracy Cells of Fire & International Conspiracy of Revenge. On July 23, 2014 a CCF cell bombed “The Dominicans” station of the Santiago Metro, and on September 8, 2014 a shopping mall in Las Condes. In both instances, measures were taken to ensure the bombs would not hurt anyone, but in the former a bag containing the bomb was moved by a Metro employee, and in the latter the police ignored a warning call the CCF cell made 10 minutes before the bomb was set to go off. As a result, the attacks ended up injuring people, so the Chilean state was able to claim they were meant to terrorize the population, and used an antiterrorism law to obtain maximum sentencing on March 15, 2018 after proclaiming Juan guilty of both attacks. Two other comrades, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzman, were initially charged alongside Juan, but after over three years of imprisonment and criminal proceedings were found not guilty on all counts.

Ivan Alocco

Ivan was arrested on June 11, 2022 in Paris and is accused of setting six vehicle of fire in Paris and Montreuil between January and June, often in solidarity with prisoners. The cops followed him for months, listened to his phone calls, installed a camera in the entrance of the building where he lived, intercepted his mail (especially the letters of anarchists/hes imprisoned) and looked at his bank account. The case will probably get connected with old counts of car arsons on 2017-2021.

Rainer Loehnert

Rainer Loehnert is 55 years old and has been locked up for more than 31 years in various prisons and mental houses, of which he has long been in isolation and on "secured stations". He is currently held in the forensic psychiatry in Bedburg Hau (North Rhine-Westphalia). Rainer was admitted to a closed psychiatry by means of a "determined incapacity and negative danger prognosis according to section 63 of the Criminal Code" due to a personal injury that he suffered 32 years ago. This resulted in an unofficial, seemingly endless "preventive detention" and long-term overdose of psychotropic drugs. During his entire detention, Rainer's anti-fascist and anti-authoritarian attitudes, actions and acts of resistance were repeatedly pathologized as "morbid" and "delusional". He opposed his unbroken will to defend himself against this prison System to the humiliation and terror of nurses, doctors, therapists, assessors, judges, etc. and other prisoners (neo-Nazis). The fights have cost him a lot of strength and nerves. In the three decades Rainer went on hunger strikes, attempted several escape attempts, and resisted various police units as well as provocations of the staff and fellow neo-Nazi prisoners. He participated in the hunger strike in solidarity with the struggling Prisoners in Greece in July 2014, and has repeatedly denied medication and urine checks, what is often punished with solitary confinement or fixation, forced medication. Rainer writes and reads very much, and expressing solidarity with various struggling (ex)prisoners, such as Marco Camenisch and Gabriel Pombo da Silva. He keeps or seeks contact, among others, with some anti-prison projects and individuals and informs himself about current (anti-domination) fights. He tries get in touch with (fighting) people from inside and outside of prison around the world. Rainer speculates about current (anarchist) struggles, especially in Europe, as well as anarchist newspaper projects, but also "classics" of anarchist theories and practices.

It is true that I have participated in some bank robberies, however I have not participated in all the ones I am accused of, or I will be accused of. The robberies I participated in were always well organized and demanded many months of planning therefore even if I wanted to, I could not be involved in so many."

Andreas Krebs

Andreas is a former rebel long-term prisoner and anarchist, who was 16 years behind bars until October 2014. Now he is back in the clutches of justice. In autumn 2014, after his release, he met his current wife Jutta. Both decided to spend a quiet retirement in the south of Italy. At the end of December 2016 there was a dispute with his former employer, who attacked Andreas and strangled him. Andreas stabbed him in self-defence with a penknife. Sadly, the victim died in the hospital three days later under mysterious circumstances, although it was said shortly after the act that he would survive. In April 2019 he was sentenced in Italy to 24 years for intended murder. In addition, Andreas has recently been diagnosed with kidney cancer.

Anna Beniamino

Anna was detained in 2019 and sentenced to 16.5 year of prison within the Scropta Manent operation that tried to attribute to a single direction a series of direct actions claimed by the Informal Anarchist Organization.

In particular, the attacks inserted in this investigation include the parcel-bombs sent to the CPT’s [detention centres for immigrants] director in Modena in May 2005, to the traffic-cops barracks in Torino-San Salvario and to the chief-police of Lecce (claimed by FAI/Narodnaja Volja), the explosive device against the RIS barracks [carabinieri forensics] in Parma (October 24, 2005, claimed by FAI/Cooperativa Artigiana Fuoco e Affini-occasionalmente spettacolare), the parcelbomb sent to the Mayor of Bologna Sergio Cofferati (November 2, 2005, claimed by FAI/Cooperativa Artigiana Fuoco e Affini-occasionalmente spettacolare), the devices against the carabinieri cadets’ barracks in Fossano (June 2, 2006, claimed by FAI/RAT-Rivolta Anonima e Tremenda), the devices placed in the Turin neighbourhood, Crocetta (March 7, 2007, claimed by FAI/RAT); among the other actions also the wounding of Adinolfi (May 7, 2012), despite the fact that two comrades have already been convicted and have publicly claimed this attack, to corroborate the crime of association. It seems that the investigators, felt the need to structure their clues, used even linguistic and graphology experts, in addition to electronic and computer surveillance, and tailing.

The Network Case (Russia)

In October 2017, FSB officers arrested six antifascists who played airsoft in the woods. The FSB planted weapons and explosives in some of their vehicles, and tortured them in pre-trial detention – beating them, hanging them upside down, electrocuting them, and threatening them with even worse. This torture was used to force the arrestees to validate forged testimony professing that they are part of an alleged terrorist “network.” At the end of January 2018, four more antifascists were arrested in St. Petersburg. They were also beaten, tortured by means of electrical shock, and forced to agree that they too were members of this invented “network.” In January 2019, Igor Shiskin was sentenced to 3.5 years of imprisonment. His case was considered individually as he entered into a plea bargain. In February 2020, Dmitry Pchelintsev received 18 years, Ilya Shakursky 16 years, Arman Sagynbaev 6 years, Andrei Chernov 14 years, Vasily Kuksov 9 years, Mikhail Kulkov 10 years, and Maxim Ivankin 13 years of imprisonment. In June 2020, St. Petersburg’s military court sentenced Viktor Filinkov to 7 years and Yuli Boyarshinov to 5.5 years in a penal colony (commuted to 5 years 3 months).

Osman Evcan

Osman, born in 1959 in Samsun, is an anarchist prisoner who spent the last 23 years in prison. İn 1992, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison with the charges of being a member of a leftist terrorist group and robbery. He was also imprisoned for 9 years between 1980-1989. Since Osman adopted anarchist ideas in 2003, he also became vegan and supports animal liberation struggles. Osman Evcan was imprisoned in many prisons all over the country during his conviction. He built his life fighting against authoritarian violence and especially the violence and oppression which is a systemic part of the prison’s hierarchical structure, and he still continues his fight against prison’s oppressive mentality, without giving an inch, aspiring to the right standards for anarchist, vegan, libertarian individuals. He can be released in September 2022. The worst scenario is 2028.

What happened on 21st March 2021 was an outpouring of rage against the violence of the police. The crowd fought back after police officers attacked the crowd with batons and riot shields. Pepper spray was used indiscriminately, people were charged at with horses and hit over the head with batons and shields . The protesters fought back, seizing police riot shields, helmets and batons to defend themselves. By the end of the evening several police vehicles had been set on fire. The demonstration was against the Police, Courts and Sentencing Bill, a bill which aims to give the police even more power to repress political dissent.

Sean Swain is a hostage held by a lawless rogue-state calling itself “The State of Ohio.” He has been held without legal conviction or sentence since 1991 for the self-defence killing of a court official’s relative who broke into Sean’s home and threatened his life. In fall of 2012, prisoners calling themselves the Army of the 12 Monkeys (A12M) got rowdy at Mansfield Correctional, and the prison authorities assumed “that anarchist” Sean Swain must have been behind it and threw him in supermax isolation. Sean denies any involvement or affiliation with the A12M and is in the process of suing the ODRC for targeting him based exclusively on his ideology and political speech. Sean is the only son of a retired auto worker and stay-home mom. He has renounced his high school diploma, his college degree, and his honourable discharge from the U.S. military. Before being taken hostage, Sean worked as a newspaper columnist and as a union organizer.

‘The she/they insurrectionist enby of your dreams. Write me about the Miami Heat, Friedrich Nietzsche, or come park your car. I’m 25, single, a fan of roses that are black and things that go boom.’

Sofia ‘Candle’ Johnson’s sentence is largely driven, time-wise, by her conviction in relation to her robbery of a 7/11 in Beaverton, Oregon; she robbed the cashier at gunpoint for around-$860 and a handful of Backwoods cigars. Though she succeeded in fleeing from the police, she was later indicted while in custody pertaining to charges that arose from her squatting of a vacant veterinary clinic. She accepted a plea-agreement of the mandatory-minimum, 90-months, per §ORS 137.700. All of her convictions run concurrently, meaning Sofia’s hard-release date is set as 12/22/2028. She has no remorse for her acts and holds the State in contempt. Sofia is an intellectual, and though her acts arose of necessity they were not born of impulse. She believes it is always time to act, even alone, that no act is more or less significant than another.

*Sending letters to Belarus. Before sending letters or cards, check with your local post if they send mail to Belarus – because of the sanctions, some countries stopped cooperating with Belarusian postoffices. Also, political prisoners in Belarus are reporting non-delivery and destruction of mail coming from comrades even inside the country. You can try to send the letters anyway, but take pictures of them and send them to belarus_abc@riseup.net – ABC-Belarus will pass them to relatives or lawyers. Alternatively, use an online form on their website https://abc-belarus.org/?

**Sending letters to Russia. Censorship in Russian pre-trial detention centres and correctional facilities forbids prisoners to correspond in foreign languages. Please use online translators to compose a message in Russian. Discussing a criminal case, radical statements, even conveying news and opinions about Russian military aggression against Ukraine can lead to pressure and the imposition of penalties on the prisoner. Of course, you are free to write whatever you want, but try to formulate your message in such a way that it does not harm the recipient.

If you are writing to prisoners outside of organised solidarity events, find out if it is possible to send letters to the Russian Federation from your region. At the moment, there is no postal service with Ukraine, Sweden, Poland, Denmark, Finland and Australia. If you are writing from a region where it is not possible to send a letter to prisoners in Russia, you can scan the message or postcard and send it to abc-msk@riseup.net. The activist team in Russia will print out all the material received

and send it to the prisoners.
