(en) US, NY native Anarchist Prisoner Jim Borekto be released from jail today!

Date Thu, 16 Feb 2006 10:47:49 +0200

Some folks will be driving to JFK to meet Jim when he gets off the
plane. Jim has been gone from NY for almost seven years and he left
when he was 18 years old. Please come out and support him Saturday
night at 71 TROUTMAN STREET in Bushwick. Take the J to MYRTLE and walk
EAST on MYRTLE a couple blocks, then turn LEFT on TROUTMAN. We may
need more bands to play and help setting up. Someone bought Jim a coat
but he'll also probably need money to get on his feet and a place to stay.
Anarchist prisoner James Borek is scheduled to be released tomorrow after
spending more than two years in prison for his participation in a 1999
London Reclaim the Streets sponsored Carnival Against Capitalism protest.
Jim is a New York native who travelled to England at the age of 18. After
being arrested, Jim fled to Ireland without his passport, where he joined
the Irish trad/punk band Blood or Whiskey.

It was while on tour with his band that Jim was apprehended in Belgium
with a phony passport. On January 23rd, 2000, in Southwark Crown
Court, he pled guilty to a section 20 Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH) and 2
violent disorder charges, plus an additional charge of skipping bail.

The June 18th, 1999 Carnival Against Capital was an international day
of protest, timed to coincide with the meeting of the G8 (Group of
Eight, most industrialised nations) Summit in Köln, Germany.
Anti-Capitalist protests were organized in over 40 countries. The
Reclaim the Streets organized demonstration in London shut down the
city center with 10,000 protesters. Demonstrators occupied the London
International Futures Exchange (LIFFE) building, trashed corporate and
financial targets and built bonfires in the streets.

Another anarchist Rob los Ricos a.k.a. Rob Thaxton was arrested at the
June 18th Eugene, Oregon protest. Rob is serving a seven year and
three months sentence for throwing a rock at a police officer who
attacked him.

Jim will be flying into New York City Thursday afternoon, and will be
welcomed by friends who have planned a party for him this Saturday at
71 Troutman Street in Brooklyn.
