Rodrigo Lanza

Chilean anarchist Rodrigo Lanza is serving twenty years in prison in Spain, accused of homicide in the death of a fascist in 2017. Rodrigo had already spent 9 years in prison for the Ciutat Morta case for leaving an agent of the Barcelona Urban Guard quadriplegic from a rock blow.

The following is a statement on Rodrigo’s sentencing, originally published in Spanish on the anarchist website Todo Por Hacer.

Tommaso "Tommy" Fontana

On April 5, 2019 in Cremona, Tommy was arrested. He is an anarchist who tried to resist a police arrest under the house of a fascist (who in the previous days had put himself on display with some cowardly provocations). A police car was smashed during the episode. On April 10, the sentence was pronounced by the Cremona court: one year, eight months and ten days of imprisonment for charges of “resistance, aggravated damage, injuries, threats and outrage”.

Ahmad Sa’adat

Ahmad is the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a Palestinian national liberation movement leader and a symbol of the international left and revolutionary movements. He was sentenced to 30 years in Israeli prison on 25 December 2008, accused of leading a prohibited organization and “incitement.” The PFLP, like all Palestinian political parties and resistance organizations, is labeled a “prohibited organization” by the Israeli occupation authorities.

Gage Halupowski

Gage was arrested at a counter demonstration against a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon on June 29th, 2019 and had been locked up at the local county jail since that day with a high bail. Then on November 1st Gage accepted a non-cooperation plea deal, plead guilty to an assault charge, and was sentenced to nearly 6 years in prison. On November 29th Gage arrived at the prison where he’ll most likely be doing the majority of his time in Ontario, Oregon which is out by the Idaho border.

Mikita Yemelyanau

Mikita is an anarchist from Minsk, detained on October 19th, 2019 with Ivan Komar on suspicion of the attempt to set fire to Minsk pretrial detention centre (article 295-3 “Illegal actions with combustible substances” and article 344 “Intentional destruction or damage of historical and cultural values”) in solidarity with Dzmitry Palijenka, who was kept there under arrest at that time.

Juan Flores Riquelme

Juan is serving a sentence of 23 years, having been arrested on September 18, 2014 and charged with incendiary attacks on police stations in 2014 claimed by the Conspiracy Cells of Fire and International Conspiracy of Revenge. On July 23, 2014 a CCF cell bombed "The Dominicans" station of the Santiago Metro, and on September 8, 2014 a shopping mall in Las Condes.

Anna Beniamino

Anna was arrested on September 6, 2016 as part of Operation Scripta Manent, and sentenced to 17 years.

An Open Letter by Anna on Operation Scripta Manent:

SCRIPTA MANENT

The prosecution in Turin have decided to put an entire anarchist tendency on trial: anti-organisation Anarchism. This isn’t a sensationalist and defensive overstatement, it’s what Turin’s investigating judge, Anna Ricci, enacted with the arrest warrants issued in July 2016, and enforced in September, probably to avoid disrupting the summer holidays of some pubic official.
