My worldview – how I think and what I believe – is a purely personal matter. The Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus applies so far only to actions.
But let’s get back to anarchism. What does the public prosecutor mean by it? The overthrow of the state system, inciting social hatred, riots, extremist destructive activity.
What do I mean by it? Solidarity and mutual aid, personal and collective freedom and responsibility, rejection of oppression in its many forms.
As an anarchist, for 10 years I’ve been cooking for the homeless and poor people on the streets of Minsk, which the “welfare state” does not care about, unlike military parades.
As an anarchist I have been involved in various educational, social and environmental projects.
As an anarchist, I contributed to the preservation of the Kotovka Square in Selkhozposelok.
As an anarchist, I do not consider it acceptable to kill and exploit animals.
As an anarchist, I am ready to simply help a person in any way I can.

To the wild celebrations in the public gallery, the presiding judge rejected the application for anarchist comrade Toby Shone’s Serious Crime Prevention Order, declaring there were no grounds for it to be applied under the circumstances. Shouts of ‘Not one step back!’ were responded to with Toby shouting ‘The Revolution is inevitable!’ The result of the court means that comrade Toby will now be released at the latest in August of this year, without the extreme conditions of surveillance and control, that would have led to him not only being cut off from his comrades, but his family, friends and partner.

Confronting the Assault on Trans People
Over the last two years, a wave of anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ legislation has swept the United States. Proposals in dozens of state legislatures have aimed to stop schoolteachers from discussing gender or sexuality—to prevent kids from using bathrooms or playing on sports teams as their self-determined gender—to force school officials to “out” trans kids to their parents—and to make it illegal for trans kids to get appropriate medical care……… continues

How can the anarchist’s commitment to the wellbeing of all be reconciled with the egoist’s commitment to the wellbeing of oneself?
I suggest reconciliation comes not from politics, nor from religion, nor from markets.
The anarchist and the egoist find reconciliation in Love. Love is a big term.
It is no wonder the ancient Greeks had so many words to describe all of the ideas encompassed in just one English word: Eros, or romantic Love, Storge, or familial Love, Philia, or friendly Love, and Agape, or Love for humanity, to name just a few

Update and contribution from the event on the case of anarchist Claudio Lavazza on 14 April at ASOEE
On Thursday, April 14th, the event of the Anarchist Initiative against State Killings, concerning the case of the anarchist comrade Claudio Lavazza, took place at the ASOEE with a relatively massive presence of comrades.
The presentation was read as well as the transcript of an interview Claudio has given about his case and a video was shown concerning the expropriation of a bank in Cordoba and the subsequent confrontation with the police forces where he was arrested.
Finally, comments and statements were made by comrades about the connection between Claudio’s experience of struggle, especially the years he participated in the Italian movement, and the present day, and it was decided to call an open assembly to organize a meeting at the French embassy on May 17, the day when the comrade’s appeal against the decision of the bourgeois justice system that forces him to serve another 5 years in prison until he is released will be heard.,, continues ….Claudio Lavazza
On Saturday 2/4 we chose to attack the MAT squad in front of the PASOK offices in Charilaou Trikoupis.
The attack turned out exactly as we had planned where, with great ease and comfort, we arrived in front of the frightened eyes of the cops who started with quick steps backwards throwing tear gas from a distance, not having the possibility to do more.
The plan had two stages, with the first being to attack the cops at the PASOK offices with 30 Molotov cocktails and the second being to create fires in the surrounding streets simply as a demonstration and reminder of how easily we can be next to you

As a minimal gesture I refuse to eat from the prison servery to mark the Revolutionary 1st of May, to join in the demonstrations around the world using my body as a means of solidarity and to protest the denial of my correspondence by the security company G4S. I will not be isolated from my family, friends and comrades and I continue to define my anti-political convictions. Honour and dignity to all those who have fallen

Update on anarchist prisoner Eric King, who has now been transferred to USP Lee in Jonesville, Virginia.
Eric King has just arrived at USP Lee in Virginia. He cannot receive books, but please send him a letter of support.[…]
It is imperative that we put pressure on the Bureau of Prisons and notify U.S. Senators and Congressional Reps about this today.
Please urge the BOP to redesignate Eric to a low or medium security prison ASAP.
They are already aware of threats made by white supremacists and long-term placement in the SHU is not an acceptable alternative to going into general population at USP Lee and being attacked by white supremacists.
Please make calls, send faxes and emails today to help keep Eric safe.
