(en) Text self-presentation Anarchist Black Cross (Core practical Anarchist Solidarity, 05/28/2016 (gr) [machine translation]

The historical information available for Anarchist Black Cross is relatively incomplete. - Generally speaking, however, the year of origin of the Anarchist Black Cross, also known as the Anarchist Red Cross (ARC), according to Rudolph Rocker (treasurer of the Anarchist Red Cross in London), is somewhere in the period 1900-1905 . - Hopefully these dates are not very accurate. - According to Harry Weinstein, one of the two men who started the organization, began after his arrest in July or August 1906. ---- Once allowed, the Weinstein and others provided clothing to anarchists sentenced to exile in Siberia. These were the early stages of the ARC. Other sources put the year of origin in 1907. ---- However, the reason for the creation of the Anarchist Red Cross is not disputed. Formed by cleavage of the Political Red Cross (PRC). The PRC was controlled by the Social Democrats and refused to provide support to anarchists and social revolutionaries political prisoners, despite constant donations from various anarchists and social revolutionaries.

Over the next seven decades, the group will continue with various names, but always considered himself part of the general formation of the Anarchist Red Cross / Anarchist Black Cross. The support of ABC (Anarchist Black Cross) for political prisoners spread to the "four corners of the world" and has become an international organizational structure, with groups in almost every state in the world.

Somewhere here, in 2016, and we come to announce the founding of the Anarchist Black Cross - core practical anarchist solidarity (Anarchist Black Cross - anarchist solidarity cell).
As anarchist / that we understand the need for a diverse anarchist struggle that will raise the issue of the attack against the state and subordination imposed by all means, in the here and now.

In this context, we do not believe that the action of our anarchist comrade / s terminated after captivity or repression. Rather, we believe that the anarchists / s prisoners / s are part of the anarchist struggle in political theory and practice. The attitude after the arrest, the assumption of political responsibility or defense of their political identity and diversity anarchist action when they deny the charges, the refusal to recognize any power of judicial institutions, the stubborn non-alienation of the totalitarian and nightmarish environment of prison the tenacious struggle against the material substance of their inclusion in escape attempts, these are all deposits equal value of their action before conception and irritate the minds of outside, resisting or under resisting.

The immediate and practical solidarity, then, is to come as a support and recognition practice of the struggle of our comrades / s, of all political subjects, regardless of their activity.

We, in principle, that the illegality, constitute non-compliance of individuality with the rules of the state, it may be in itself a political act, even when the subject is not anarchist origins, it has shown, however, one decent route in her / his life, in or out of prison. The identity of the / th criminal / prisoner ordination / th is therefore not a homogeneous thing and an absolute criminal / political prisoners separation as political subjects (or resistance subjects) and recipients of our solidarity is not possible for us nor fair. The fact, then, that organizational, like structure, chose to aim specifically at supporting anarchist political prisoners, it has to do with strategic targets and priorities policy kinship and does not negate our solidarity and penal / s prisoners / s or political / s prisoners / s that do not define themselves as anarchists / s.

Solidarity means recognizing the fight, but not necessarily matching. The choices of prisoners anarchists are for us conscious rational choices, the only consistent result of their analyzes, which will complement the wider puzzle the anarchist struggle. Like this, we feel each other along the endless road of anarchy.

We support the diverse anarchist and act, but as an anarchist black cross core practical anarchist solidarity, solidarity will be transformed into public solidarity and support actions.

In our blog abcsolidaritycell.espivblogs.net will climb updates on the / s anarchist / s captives and updates from their trials.

The anarchist struggle for the end of the state and the power does not fit mikropolitikantikes reasonable and confrontations. Our goal is the destruction of the existing and not our self-referentiality.
