(en) INDONESIAN PALANG HITAM - BLACK CROSS: Burn All Prisons! [machine translation]

Solidarity demo report at AZC Echt ---- April 24, we and a group of friends held a demonstration in front of AZC Echt to show our solidarity with the refugees who are struggling in inhuman conditions. ---- Since then, demonstrators started walking from Echt Station. Police started coming to stop and threaten us with arrests. First, they say: "You broke the health protocol regarding COVID-19", then: and after that: "This demonstration is illegal. If you go there, you will be caught ". On the way to the evacuation village, one person was arrested for "unclear reasons". Despite the fact that we maintained a distance of 1.5 meters from other people, the police still stopped us for no reason and demanded to show ID because of "violation of health protocols".

In front of the camp, migrants as well as in solidarity shouted, holding banners: "Legal documents for all migrants", "Break borders. IND pembunub! ". People from different parts of the Netherlands stand in solidarity with asylum seekers from AZC Echt. The police came in very large numbers and surrounded the peaceful demonstration and made the arrests of our friend simply because of the fact that our friend knows his right to free speech and is not afraid of threats from the police for their illegal acts. Next, they arrested an anarchist named Abtin Parsa, brutally took him and threw him into a car. While trying to help Abtin, another colleague was arrested. Their feet were injured and when the police stepped on them, our companion could not walk, so the police dragged him to the police car. When other people also tried to help, they were threatened with two dogs and baton, but the police continued to beat them with the baton. After the arrests, more policemen came. Towards the end of the demonstration there were no less than 10 police cars just to secure 20-30 demonstrators. Obviously, Echt, with a population of only 7700 people doesn't need a lot of police. It doesn't seem like enough for the police, they call the police helicopter! After the arrest, people continued to shout slogans, while the police continued to threaten with aggressive dogs, and camp guards tried to push people away from the fence. About 25 minutes later, the demo slowly started to finish. At the same time, the police began to form a line facing the center of Echt. Lines of police running behind the people who let nobody return to the camps. People kept chanting slogans and carrying signs: "Open borders. Refugee life is important "," IND killer ","Vrijheid voor iedereen "," Tegen staats-terrorism "," Legal documents for all "," Close all AZC detention centers ", etc. After some time, the police raided the demonstrators in such a way that people could not maintain a safe distance, and escorted them to Station Echt. Where they demanded people to leave the city. Some comrades parked bikes and car ov-fiets in AZC, but the police didn't let them go. They waited until the people got on the train and then left.

Three of the four people arrested were released at the time of writing. The police released one of the detainees just 10 minutes before the curfew ended, knowing the fact that this person lived in a different city and had no phone, no money, no credit card, nothing. Thanks to local solidarity, they are safe and have a safe place to live. Our comrade Abtin Parsa remains arrested. Lawyers are still working on his release.

This is a report from a demo and not a political statement. We will publish our statement on this situation later.

Public announcement of Abtin Parsa

The notion of Social Democracy fears that immigrants will organize themselves in direct cooperation with local residents. The notion of a deadly Social Democracy oppressed the AZC echt liberation movement, when it saw democratic autonomous management as a threat to its existence. The self-organizing of immigrants at AZC Echt has been successful in running all parts of the camp; Direct democracy based on mutual solidarity has generally been able to eliminate the role of state management (COA) in AZC Echt. The regime lost control of the camps, when the self-governing community could meet its needs without intervention from the authoritarian COA. Azc Echt proved that self-management based on direct democracy can seriously meet the needs of society better than social democracy. This is also a materialist response to those who consider libertarian socialism (anarchism) unattainable. No Azc Echt people are anarchists, but we have seen how (stateless) socialism can create anti-authoritarian societies based on autonomous self-management and direct (assembly) democracy. Despite the struggle of the AZC Echt community. self-organization had prepared itself not long ago but the regime quickly began to attack it, but I believe that the capitalist regime cannot destroy the idea that society based on class consciousness has made it happen. As a tool to free himself. At AZC Echt, with me or without me, the idea of liberation cannot be removed from the minds of immigrants. People took their lives in their hands,

The idea of Social Democracy has alienated me from AZC Echt to another AZC, they are criminalizing political struggles trying to drop demands for a failed liberation, we must not allow the regime to do such an act. They were even afraid of my presence near AZC Echt. , they threatened to take legal action against me by criminalizing my presence in AZCecht; In doing so, the regime wants to buy more time to carefully dismantle the self-help organization of immigrants at AZC Echt. To leave such a thing to the regime is to be an observer when the self-organized community of immigrant struggle (proletariat) comes under attack by the regime.

Recall March 21, 2020, when special forces entered the Corridalus Prison and Pola Rupa political prisoners (EA members) who were exiled to another prison. The reason for the exile of the political prisoner Pola Rupa (member of EA) to the Thebes women's prison was the mobilization he made in detention. The grecce regime is terrified when it sees the oppressed unite against the real enemy. With the exile of Pula Rupa (member of EA), the prisoner mobilization calmed down after a while and was gradually suppressed by the state. This is an old regime tactic to suppress popular mobilization, something we saw recently in AZC Echt.

Since I do not wish to provide the regime with unnecessary information, I do not intend to address all issues in this public statement. I prefer to wait for the court hearing and raise more matters after the court's decision if necessary. I feel it is necessary to maintain the political identity of the azc Echt liberation movement, which is why this statement is published. Friends should know that the reason for the regime's oppression on Saturday, April 24, 2021 is not only fear of demonstrations, but also their fear of self-regulation and self-management created in AZC Echt.

Latest News: Abtin Parsa

Via ig: asranarshism

"Abtin Parsa is currently free (temporarily), he was released after going on a hunger strike and an action of international / local solidarity which put heavy pressure on the Netherlands."

"The police are seeking trial and because the charges against him are serious, Abtin Parsan can be sentenced to up to 5 years in prison."

Solidarity for Abtin Parsa

Abtin was arrested during a protest for an inhuman refugee camp (asylum center) in the Netherlands. This camp is no better than a prison. He / they are free, but as someone who was not directly involved in the protests at Echt, I would like to contribute to the struggle in various ways. I have a lot of respect for Abtin because he is someone who is actively risking his own freedom for the freedom of others. I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to carry out a mutiny with Abtin?
