As a part of an ongoing struggle against prisons and the construction of a new deportation prison specifically, anarchists called for an offensive demonstration against borders and all types of prisons on the 1st of October. This was blocked by massive police presence and arrests. 4 people are at this moment still in jail, awaiting trial. They are accused of having participated in a group-attack against a police station. Here the translation of a recent poster. In PDF, 4 pages, with texts and an overview of agitation in Belgium over the last month., in an attempt to show the social tension manifesting itself on different spheres.

Solidarity with the accused of the attack on a police station in Brussels
On Friday the 1st of October, near the South station, a lively demonstration against deportation camps, prisons, borders and the State was to take place. This same State was not pleased with the initiative, and besieged the neighbourhood. The police controlled, searched and arrested a big number of people around the station; in Anderlecht, a popular neighbourhood nearby, police with machine guns patrolled on strategic places and several anti-riot squads were to protect the 2 prisons of Brussels, in Forest and Saint-Gilles. In half of Brussels territory a prohibition to gather more than 5 people was announced, enforced by civil and riot police. A few hours after the demonstration should have taken place, dozens of people attacked the police station of the Marolles, a few blocks away from the South station. The police station and numerous police cars were destroyed, two policemen were injured. Four people were arrested in the surroundings some time after and are now accused of this attack. They are locked up in the prison of Forest, awaiting trial.
We fully support the attack they are accused of and see it as a logical act in which we recognize ourselves. Not only because we will always be against the police, but because this attack is part of a tension that is present in Brussels since a long time, where people direct their anger more and more against what tries to break them. Against what exploits, controls or imprisons them. A tension that is also tangible, not in the least in the prisons and deportation all over Belgium. The struggle of the last years against deportation camps and prisons and the demonstration of the 1st of October is, in this way, also part of this tension. And we will never forget this in our solidarity with those who are taken away from us by the State. On the 1st of October, many people were ready to take the streets for what they believe in, or in the least to fight against what makes their dreams impossible. And they will continue to do so. We will continue to do so.
Because it is our dreams that shape the struggle we are fighting. It is our dreams that drag the imprisoned comrades out of the isolation imposed on them.
For nothing else than a world without prisons or deportation camps. For nothing else than a fight without borders against everything that, here and now, makes it impossible to taste freedom.
For anarchy

“…A handful of capitalists
have organized a criminal gang
and have kidnapped the proletarians,
demanding for ransom
their labor force,
merchandising their human activity,
their time (which is turned into money),
their own being itself…”

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
