(en) Brazil, Libertarian Resistance Organization) [ORL/CAB] - INFO 4. PROTEST IS NOT A CRIME FREE TO ERIC (pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 16:13:38 +0300

" [...] I am truly free only when all human beings around me, men and women, are equally free [...] only the freedom of others makes me truly free [...] "Mikhail Bakunin ---- We, the Libertarian Resistance Organization [ORL], member of the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination [CAB], stand and cry for freedom of the student Eric, trapped in the manifestation of last Friday, July 4. This arrest was just another attempt to silence the combative social movements Fortaleza and silence the cry that comes from the streets. ---- The demonstration on 4th was pulled against the injustices of the canopy, but also encompassed other issues, such as the free pass. The walk began hours before the game between Brazil vs Colombia and had a final destination the vicinity of Castellan Stadium. The armed wing of the State (cotizan) forced the end of the act holding more than 30 militants. A bus was called the PM to take protesters to the police station, which was the system down, and because of that, Comp @ s were released, the first being teenagers and then adults. But Eric ended up getting unjustly imprisoned, without bail, accused of property damage "public" contempt of authority and a supporter of the status of the article.

The state is systematic violence against those who stand against this repressive, patriarchal, unfair and unequal system. As soon as those oppressed who are standing in the fight against the current regime will be seen as a threat to (dis) political and economic order established by the State and Capital. Thus, the arrest of Eric is configured as a political prison, as well as many others who were arbitrarily made in recent months.

Since June 2013 were several raids without warrants and several were arrested / the politicians. The crackdown a year down here begins with the invasion at the headquarters of Gaucha Anarchist Federation (FAG) in Porto Alegre, but precisely on June 20, 2013. Agents federal police raided and seized without a warrant various advertising materials of political organization. In the second half of 2013, a mark that stood in the demonstrations was the disproportionate repression, a heavily armed in the streets to stop any form of protest apparatus.

The federal government after June 2013 decided to equip the police and military forces to contain any form of manifestation during the FIFA World Cup. Parallel to this, various search and seizure warrants were issued by the legal sphere / State.

In early 2014 the combative social movements in major Brazilian cities, especially in the cities which hosted the Cup games, started pulling acts against holding the crown. Fortaleza, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Porto Alegre and other cities, the flames reached the street mobilizations, which had as its central theme: canopy, removals, public transportation and so on.

Another point that mobilized demonstrations in 2014 was the fare and marketing issues surrounding the design of public transport, such as: the highest value of the ticket, the fare increase in certain cities and transport mafia.

On January 22, 2014 the ongoing fight against the mafia of concessions and the implementation of zero tariff in Joinville gained a new page three militants encampavam their struggles were arrested after returning from a demonstration. Of the three militants, two were MPL [Joinville] and also integrated the Anarchist Collective Black Flag [CABN]. The other militant belonged to the front of the struggle for public transport. The militants have been called for a first hearing and waiting to be summoned to a second stage in the legal sphere.

The Front for the Struggle for Public Transport Goiânia was also strongly attacked by the repressive organs of the state. The struggle for a truly public transportation in Goiânia gained momentum in May with strong manifestations, peripheral youth and taking forward the fight as the protagonists of the mobilizations against the fare increase, from R $ 2.70 to R $ 2.80. Monopolies of public transport with your lobby with the state pushed for a police investigation was initiated and emergently were decreed remand for several protesters who were struggling. Three militants were arrested on May 23, just days after being released.

The most emblematic case is that of homeless Rafael Braga of Rio de Janeiro, who was arrested during a demonstration without any real evidence against him. In Rio, besides the arrest of Rafael, the community had private Tide of freedom. State terrorism, which surrounded and stormed the complex tide with the clear desire to hold onto their territory the poor and the black tide, part of the "legacy" of the Cup, which sought and is seeking to control the oppressed classes before and during the FIFA Cup. Furthermore, the canopy also left thousands of families removed 14 dead in works Cup, rivers of money with high profitability for FIFA and urban immobility that favors the profit of the contractors.

In Fortaleza, the strong and intense events of April and May due to the blocking of student identification cards led hundreds of young people to the streets. The mobilizations added high school students, youth and peripheral movements fighting for a free pass. The battles between the popular pressure and the repressive forces (municipal police, riot and civil police of PM) in Fortaleza created a real state of exception and site in this context and the disproportion between the antagonistic subject (combative social movements versus repression) led the last three months over one hundred and twenty militants police stations of the city to sign TCO (circumstantial term occurrence). Including activists of Otolaryngology, the MPL (Fortaleza), the Anti-Capitalist Assembly, and other independent among others, have signed and are slowly being summoned to appear in criminal court or certain precincts of the city.

Many activists who have been arrested or are being investigated have been subpoenaed to testify. But the case is different Eric, the student continues arrested by repression, arrested by the criminalization of protest and oppressed classes. The prison mate is a blow to all of those who fight, because all those who seek social change, will soon be hunted down and prosecuted by state terror. Do not forget, the arrest of Eric is a political prison! The way to express their dissatisfaction with the political status quo was protesting and PROTEST IS NOT CRIME!

Freedom for ERIC and all political prisoners!

By the end of the military police!

Protesting is not a crime!
