Over the past twelve months, new waves of revolt have swept over this
continent and the entire world. Against the terror of the Mexican state and
its bloody cronies, demonstrations, riots, and attacks have radiated outwards
from Ayotzinapa. Triggered by the racist violence of U.S. cops, rebels across
the middle of the continent have achieved a new level of intensity and
coordination. Blockades and occupations continue to simmer and spread in the
Canadian state, with burning barricades built by Mi’kmaq warriors in 2013
finally finding echoes in the Bay Area. It’s vital that we link our
practice of New Year’s Eve noise demos to this eruption of social conflict.

Globally, these eruptions immediately find themselves in desperate conflict
with the system, sometimes leading to the arrest and imprisonment of rebels
and anarchists. For others, it has led to torture and death. The beginning of
the year saw the arrest of Amelie, Carlos, and Fallon. As the year comes to a
close, there are hundreds facing charges across the U.S. after months of wild
anti-police demos. We have lost not only Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown,
and the Normalistas but also Remi Fraisse and, last year, Omar Aziz. Dozens
of comrades remain in clandestinity, while others continue their struggles
behind prison walls. These struggles range from the protests of rebel
prisoners and immigrant detainees in California and Indiana, Tacoma and
Houston, to the victorious hunger strike waged by Nikos Romanos and thousands
of comrades across Europe.

June 11: International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason and all Eco-prisoners

neveralone2014smallJoin us in an International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and all Eco-prisoners on every June 11th. Marie Mason and Eric McDavid share the unfortunate distinction of having the longest standing sentences of environmental prisoners in the United States. This is a time to remember radical history and the strength who are in prison – who are continuing their struggles on the inside. This is a time to continue and strengthen the very work for which Eric and Marie are now serving so much time – to struggle against capitalism, ecological devastation, and the ever more diffuse forms of control in this prison society.

This year, there are almost 40 events planned across 7 countries.  See june11.org for a more information and a complete list.

Wherever you are, we are pleased to announce that the 2014 Never Alone Art Exhibit is now live and all artworks are for sale with the proceeds going to benefit Eric, Marie and other prisoners!  See neveraloneart.org.
