Action for political prisoners at mass street protest in Paris on June 14th

During the June 14th demonstration in Paris, comrades of AGB (Anarchist Group from Bern) carried a banner in solidarity with political prisoners in Greece, Switzerland and elsewhere, reading: “Whoever forgets the prisoners of social war has forgotten the war! Freedom for Nikos Maziotis, Marco Camenisch & members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. ”

Received June 26th along with the images:

Unions and revolutionary groups called for a mass street protest on June 14th 2016 in France. Hundreds of thousands participated in the demonstration against new reforms to labor laws, capitalism and state oppression. In addition, many people from all over Europe went to Paris to show solidarity with the movement.

Reacting to the dynamic protest of the people the police governed by the left government attacked with tear gas, flash bangs, baton charges and water cannons. Hundreds were injured; in one case a person nearly died because he was hit by a tear gas shell.

With our banner we wanted to draw attention to all the prisoners who couldn’t fight by our side that day. For example, in Greece there is currently a trial going on against 22 Anarchists. Nikos Maziotis, another Anarchist and Member of the group Revolutionary Struggle, was sentenced to life because he participated in armed struggle.

Since the protests in France started, three months ago, nearly 500 people were arrested by now.

There are thousands of revolutionaries all over the world who are jailed because they fought for a free society.

Whoever forgets the prisoners of social war has forgotten the war!
