from: Agua Daspedras26 February, Leiria – the screws in the prison of Leiria beat up a prisoner after he refused to hand them the TV in his cell (as a punishment for coming back a few minutes later). Seeing this, many prisoners demand to talk with the prison director before they re-enter their cells. The director refused, and ordered the guards to beat every prisoner that was causing trouble. At that time, the prisoners who were in the refectory resisted the beatings, and the guards opened fire on them. After running away to the cells, the prisoners were beaten one by one, and the cells were raided. Two days later 6 prisoners escape.

Prison is not only its building in a distant and isolated place. It is the entire world that builds it and needs it, and all the companies, institutions and people supporting it and collaborating with it in a direct way. To struggle against prison is to struggle against its world. It is in the acts of insubmission, small or big, that we recognize ourselves. And it’s acts of insubmission that we want to spread.”

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.
