The remaining charges on all the remaining 39 J20 inauguration day protesters have been dismissed! All of em!  Every single one!


As NYC ABC celebrates this victory, brought by the work of the defendants themselves, those in the community who supported them, and the legal and support teams that destroyed and exposed the State’s cases/lies in the the previous J20 trials, we are reminded of the importance of supporting folks who put themselves on the line in direct action against State, capitalist, and white supremacist power. You won’t see anyone resting on any laurels here in NYC. With that in mind, this week we will once again answer this call for support in the Fourth Annual International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners by sending cards to antifascist prisoners overseas.

From NYC Antifa:

Since the last July 25th International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners, the worldwide struggle against the nightmare of fascism and the far-right has grown and intensified. The news bulletins steadily report the racist and bigoted attacks, the harassment of journalists, the demonization of refugees and migrants, and the increasing presence and violence of organized fascist and far-right groups. While the bigoted, nationalist imagination reproduces itself on a global scale, it also attempts to turn us all into prisoners of the border.

Originating in 2014 as a Day of Solidarity with Jock Palfreeman—an Australian man serving a 20-year sentence in Bulgaria for defending two Romani men from an attack by fascist football hooligans—the International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners aims to break down the borders and build an international response against fascism. By having an event, raising money, or dedicating an action to these comrades, we can simultaneously strengthen our local movements by ensuring that those who have acted to protect our communities against the fascist threat are never forgotten, as well as create the links of a powerful international solidarity which can transcend both the prison and the border wall.

This July 25th, we call on antifascists worldwide to act in solidarity with antifascist prisoners—the comrades who have been behind bars for many years, the friends who have just begun their sentences, the mates still awaiting trial—because they are in there for us, and so we must be out here for them!

No Pasaran!
Until All Are Free!
