HAMBURG SUMMER 2017: I AM THERE, I STAY THERE!
”It’s been almost a month and a half since I was imprisoned during the twelfth G20 summit in Hamburg, in a city that was besieged and taken in hostage by the security forces, but which also saw an important local and popular protest.

The modification enacted by the Superior Court of “Justice” on the sentence of our compañero Luis Fernando Sotelo is a joke. The reduction of the sentence to 13 years [from 33 years], is not to serve justice, but is a mockery of it. The irregularities in the process have been denounced innumerable times. Evidence doesn’t exist to incriminate him and during the trial the only eyewitness, the driver of the metro-bus, said he did not recognize our compañero.
Why is he still in prison? It is not for judicial reasons, but political ones. It is punishment for social protest. They want to keep him imprisoned as an example. Our compañero is detained under the command of the government of Mexico City, lead by Miguel Ángel Mancera. Or perhaps also the rumors of corruption of the Fourth Chamber of the Superior Criminal Court are more correct?

Google blacklists 10,000 sites a day for various reasons, mainly for spam. For them this includes sharing or modifying blog posts like the one below. Thousands of blogs and alternative news sites, including this one (thefreeonline) are permanently ‘deranked’ for sharing, so they only appear in Google Search if you search the exact title or URL. Many bloggers see their traffic vanish and close down.
The New Censorship How did Google become the internet’s censor and master manipulator, blocking access to millions of websites?
By Robert Epstein.. re-blogged with thanks, (illustrations etc added)
Google, Inc., isn’t just the world’s biggest purveyor of information; it is also the world’s biggest censor.
The company maintains at least nine different blacklists that impact our lives, generally without input or authority from any outside advisory group, industry association or government agency. Google is not the only company suppressing content on the internet.
Reddit has frequently been accused of banning postings on specific topics, and a recent report suggests that Facebook has been deleting conservative news stories from its newsfeed (good on em!), a practice that might have a significant effect on public opinion – even on voting. Google, though, is currently the biggest bully on the block.
Blacklist Check – Finds and Checks your IP Address? free service Check to see if an IP address is blacklisted with one of nearly seventy DNS based blacklists(DNSBL) in our database which identify sources of spam.
When Google’s employees or algorithms decide to block our access to information about a news item, political candidate or business, opinions and votes can shift, reputations can be ruined and businesses can crash and burn. Continue reading “Google is World Censor: check out the 9 Blacklists”

In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change.
At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.
This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30.
