Repression round-up: court and prison news for July 20-25th

A few important notes on repression and resistance over the next few days: Aiden Aslin is due in court in Nottingham on Wednesday 20th to find out if he’ll be charged for allegedly helping the Kurdish resistance against ISIS. London Antifascists have written a callout asking people to get down and support. On Thursday 21st, there’s a protest at the Prison Service Headquarters in London calling for the abolition of the Close Supervison Centre system and in solidarity with Kevan Thackrar. You can read more about why this is important here.

Bristol ABC share the news that people involved in organising the upcoming US prison strike will be in the UK on the 20th-24th and available to do talks, although I’ve not seen anything more precise than that yet.

July 25th will be observed as an international day of solidarity with antifa prisoners. Pleasingly, that day will also see Luke O’Donovan leave prison after serving a two-year sentence. Less pleasingly, it comes just after a comrade from Merseyside was sent down for taking direct action against fascists in Dover – they’ve chosen not to make her address public, but get in touch with Merseyside AFN directly if you’d like to message her.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
