G20 Summit 2018 – An open letter to the Activists in Buenos Aires

The following information about an open letter and reflection paper reached United We Stand:

“This is a detailed report and reflection on what happened before, during, and after the 2017 G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. At the same time, it is a letter addressed to the activists and residents of Buenos Aires, Argentina—where the next summit (protest) will soon take place.

The authors come from Paris and Hamburg; they took part in the protest week together. They began working on this book in September 2017, discussing and composing everything clandestinely because politicians and police have been alleging that an “international conspiracy” was responsible for the militant resistance.

Words of Love and Solidarity from Fabio

Here are some words from our comrade, friend and brother Fabio

sent from Italy, full of love and solidarity:

Freedom is beautiful

Freedom is beautiful, how many beautiful things does freedom have!

A beer, a kiss, a blue sky without bars in the middle,

the rays of the sun that beat on our skin in these first days of spring.

In short, freedom is just nice.

However, many friends and many friends, many comrades, cannot enjoy all
this.

Because they are imprisoned by this “justice”.

And it is to them that our thoughts must go.

Each one of us in his own small way can do something…

We can send letters, help family members, and, above all, we can go to
court.

The trials are focal point of the judiciary. T

he judges, strong in their power, distribute years of prison

like candies in proceedings that are often only farcical.

The logic of power is always the same, isolating, dividing, breaking bonds.

They know that one man is easy to fight.

That’s why attending the processes is so important,

to make it clear that if they touch one they touch everyone!

Let us show solidarity with those arrested and on trial!

Peike, Kostantin, Evgenii and everyone else who may will follow!

United we Stand!

Fabio

Solidarity with Riccardo and all Prisoners


We have done a lock-on-action on the same day as the trial of Riccardo, that’s the reason why we took a solidarity banner with us.
We stopped a transport of uranium for 17 hours. We think different actions against capitalism and authority have to go together as in Hamburg at the G20.

Invitation to a Transnational Gathering for G20 Prisoners Support

The campaign “UNITED WE STAND” is a loose network of different people and groups to support the ones who face repression after the g20 summit in Hamburg. Our focus is to support them during prison and trial.

Hello to the Prisoners in the Prison Billwerder during the Demonstration on the 3rd of September

UNITED WE STAND!
FREE THEM ALL!

Hello people,
You inside and you outside. It is us again, your siblings, your friends, your comrades.

Since almost 2 month you are locked up here as G20 Prisoners. Locked up behind high walls, with the most unbelievable justifications and court orders.

Most of you don’t have a german Passport and that seems to be reason enough, in this deeply racist society, to be locked up for month with the construction of things like ‘psychological assistance’. 3 of our young companions are still locked up in the Prison for minors on the island and some are in the Pre-Trial Prison in Neustadt. Our complete support and solidarity counts also for them.

With joy we heared that Maria finaly got free, that is great but we will not be still and silent until everyone is free! We will come back to visit you every first sunday of the month.

There are many actions of solidarity for you, there is a solidarity-graffiti at the german embassy in Paris and also some windows broke there. There where Demonstration in Venice and Rome infront of the german embassys with the demand to immediately free all of you. On the 6th of August during our last visit there was a Solidarity-Manifestation in Genua on the square ‘San Lorenzo’ and another Solidarity-Manifestation in Bilbao to show support and communion with you in the Prison. On the 7th of August people gathered in Gdansk, Krakow and Warsaw infront of the german embassys to demand your freedom.

Last time you could only hear us quietly so today we will speak even louder and brought some of your favorite songs. Write into your letters what songs you want to hear, what will give you strength and will lighten up the miserable everyday life in Prison. We will organise this music, We hope you get enough letters.

We will see each other soon.
Here!
In the Court!
or on the Street!

FREE YOU ALL!
UNITED WE STAND!

6.8. JVA Billwerder – a report

On 6th of August we went with around 200 people infront of the Gates of the Prison in Billwerder. Almost 30 G20-Prisoners where still hold here. At a good-weather day, loud and colourful, we went with music from S-Bahn Moorfleet to the Walls of the Prison. For 2 hours there where speaches hold in many different languages among it enlish, spanish, italian, basque, russian and czech. The microphone was ‘open’ so relatives aswell as varying political groups where speaking. As people brought coffee and cake to support the demonstration a swiss newspaper called the Demonstration a ‘promotional trip’. We happily will continue this. On Sunday 03.09 we will start again! Come all!
