(en) Brazil, Anarchist Federation Gaucha FAG - Do not be intimidated, not demobilize! All our solidarity with the companion Vicente! (it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 07 Feb 2015 16:37:03 +0200

January 2015, the eve of the resumption of fighting against the increase in travel and in defense of a 100% pubic transport in Porto Alegre, received the news of the sentence given to his companion Vicente militant FAG and social Fighter Fight block by Transportation Public Porto Alegre. Vicente is being sentenced to one year in prison for damage to public property and environmental crime, "crimes" he committed in April 2013 during a demonstration Fight block opposite the city of Porto Alegre. This is the first conviction in Porto Alegre and for us a clear attempt to intimidate and put fear in the group of fighters and organizations that are rearticulating struggles in the beginning of 2015. A political expediency and history used by the dominant sectors of our city and around the world: the incarceration of that rise. Not desmobilizaremos us and our solidarity will be militant and in the streets !!!

And the criminalization continues ...

The fact of the conviction in has received only a week before the first year of protest Fights block by Public Transportation is anything but a matter of chance or due process of the judiciary. It begins the year and at the same time starting to move in the processes that were being processed Since 2013: Adding names to some new crimes to others. The process in this context seeks to have the same effect as a rubber bullet or a stun bomb: an attempt to intimidate and brake the street fights that dare question the profits of entrepreneurs and conspiracies already clear of companies with public authorities .

The situation is far from being just a local situation: who thought the criminalization of situation had been exhausted due to the decline of street protests after the World Cup in 2014, the recent movement of governments and repressive apparatus indicate otherwise. In São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and a number of other cities in Brazil that started the year with demonstrations against the increase in bus fares repression has used the same expedients against protesters: tear gas, rubber bullets and arbitrary arrests. The Rio Rafael Braga Vieira, who was previously the only condemned the protests of June 2013 and is being held in Porto Alegre processes are once again moved, new names are added and now the first sentence is given without proof. It's the old bourgeois justice by taking part in a fight between oppressors and oppressed is far from over.

However, the struggle and organization of low did not start today and will also continue. It mobilize young people, workers, the homeless and peripheral communities. The 2013 street demonstrations have opened up new possibilities in pregnancy organizational experience and fight the militant left assembly and anti capitalist need help foster and advance discarding the old avant-garde, sectarian and impositive practices that unfortunately still permeate discourses and practices of many organizations. We believe that the only way we can create social force from below go gestating self-organization mechanisms and digging into his horizon the need for social transformation of society as a whole. A true front of oppressed and downtrodden solidarity to any fellow prisoner, tortured, murdered and disappeared.

2015: advance organization, fencing even mores solidarity fighting!

The selectivity of the penal system also becomes evident in this case. Throughout this process that begins with more than a dozen defendants for damages made in a demonstration with more than a thousand people, we saw arquivarem one by one all suspects accountable the only black boy anarchist ideology that was between the accused and now include other black militant PSTU. We know that the main reason of such conviction is of a political-ideological but we can not omit the fact that the black color of the accused is an important factor.

The latest cases were highlighted as the criminalization against the collective and anarchist movements. In 2013, we had invaded our public spaces and our collected books, through heavy processes of investigations where it was assessed was our position on issues like authority, government, police and other subjects dear to the anarchist ideology. Flyers, posters and literature were attached in the processes, like circumstantial evidence that showed some role intellectual mentor of our ideology in depredations or withdrawals made in the demonstrations of 2013, which had more than 50,000 people in Porto Alegre.

The companion Vicente, as well as other militants and fighters from other organizations, groups and ideologies, was not the first and will not be the last young black and anarchist to be sentenced this racist Brazil. Thousands of black men and women / the poor and exterminated and condemned daily by the military police and the bourgeois and racist justice. It is to them and them to our militant solidarity is directed and will be next to each worker / that cerraremos our fists. We are not intimidaremos and on every street march, picket, strike, occupation will be shoulder to shoulder with each and all who fight!

Solidarity to all and all comrades persecuted for fighting!

By the end of the military police!

Our anarchist ideology does not lend itself to caricatures !!!
