CS ABC support protest for Mark Barnsley

Czechoslovak Anarchist Black Cross, elected body of Federation of Social
Anarchist (IWA/AIT), has organised on November 18th in Prague protest
picketing of British embassy in Prague to support anarchist political prisoner
Mark Barnsley.
Action has been participated by 20 mostly FSA-IWA members and
sympathisers. Local authority has banned the rally because of crossing the
100 m security zone, surrounding building of Parliament. Police finally stated
that after twenty minutes the action will be eventually dispersed. The speech
was held supporting Mark Barnsley and condemning reprisals of EU member
countries against anarchists. Media were also present and we had stressed
recent cases of reprisals against Czech antifascists from Prague and
Nachod. Police has been harassing the participants as usual, checked
identity of several comrades and planning to raise minor charges against

Photos will be available on www.volny.cz/fsa-map as soon as possible.

What is Czechoslovak Anarchist Black Cross?
If you do not watch the world through eyes of egoist, you cannot overlook
violence and arbitrariness of the state, instrument belonging to the ruling
class for suppressing our freedoms.
Anarchists are people, acting and struggling in the name of anarchist ideals -
against state and capitalism, against oppression and exploitation (both of
people and nature) - for authentic humane values of freedom, social equality,
solidarity and mutual aid. Anarchists struggle by disseminating their ideas
wide among various societies and communities, but also by militant way,
which is just a response to state terror and unlimited capitalist exploitation.
Every manifestation of resistance has been traditionally brutally repressed by
state armed forces. The ruling class is also trying to prevent spreading of
dissident ideas, dangerous for its existence. Ruling class also utilise
repressive laws and police provocations to criminalize people, professing
these ideas.
Czechoslovak Anarchist Black Cross has been formed as elected body,
responsible to Federation of Social Anarchists, member section of
International Workers Association. It has been created by Czechoslovak
anarchist movement in response to growing repressions aimed at its activists.
To run ABC group as elected body of wide anarchist organisation is not so
common, but we deem it necessary for maintaining accountability for used
resources and methods of work. Rights and duties of ABC are clearly
embedded in FSA federative Statutes and all activities exceeding this scope
must be confirmed by the Federation as a whole.
