We received word recently from a friend of Sean’s that Sean is currently on hunger strike and has been placed in a suicide cell.
Although details are still murky, we know that Sean has been without food since December 26th 2016. He was charged with extortion of a […]
Below is a statement that longterm anarchist prisoner Sean Swain sent for the presentation by comrades from Bloomington ABC on November 23rd 2016 at Gini building of the Athens Polytechnic School in Exarchia, Athens. The comrade’s words were read out loud in English and Greek, and printouts of his text were shared during the discussion […]
Constantly inspired by Sean’s words and his stance against prisoncrats, constantly feeling the warmth of his rebellion, on November 21st 2016 we pasted posters in the neighborhood of Exarchia (downtown Athens) that read:
“And we attack, wherever we are, whatever our situation, until we get the world we deserve. We’re not going to vote them […]
Sean Swain’s Final Straw Radio segment aired July 2016; available on SeanSwain.org
I’ve never understood the obsession of regulating other people’s sexual behavior. It sure seems like we live in a world where most people are more concerned about what other people are doing with their pants down than they are […]
On Saturday June 11th, day of international solidarity with anarchist prisoners, we carried out an intervention at the American Consulate General in Thessaloniki.
During the action, we hung a banner reading: “Until the destruction of every prison, death to the world of submission – Freedom for anarchist prisoners across the world”. We also threw leaflets […]

June 11th 2016: International Day of Action
For June 11th, 2015, we emphasized transition in the struggle and in the lives of the prisoners we support. This year we’re focusing on a different kind of transition: the restructuring of the […]
Received February 4th:
We hung a banner in solidarity with Sean Swain’s struggles against the prison system in Ohio. Despite repeatedly being transferred and having his communications cut off, Sean remains uncompromising in his pursuit of freedom, putting his life on the line in struggle against the state. We keep his words and deeds with […]
Update: I’m Still Alive, January 14th: […] I expected that in about 72 hours, I would fall over dead, all of you savages would read my profound words of great power, and you’d take up your machetes to hack swivelization to pieces. You know, in love and rage and all that. Then, I didn’t die. […]
“I would also point out that arson is the least-solved crime in the United States, and that gasoline is really cheap, and matches are free.” Sean Swain, longterm anarchist prisoner; excerpt from his text for Black December
On Saturday night, early Sunday December 13th, we chose to carry out an incendiary […]
Black December is coming, and none too soon. We’ve hashed out our theories and we’ve analyzed our reality, we know what kind of future we want and what we are going to have to tear apart in order to get it. The time for philosophizing and talking it out has ended and we […]
Received on September 15th:
We’re not sure what’s going on, but Sean Swain has been blocked from receiving (and presumably sending) JPay emails. He also has not called his primary supporters, or The Final Straw for a new radio segment. We’ll probably hear from him via snail mail […]
Received on August 27th:
Sean’s having a rough time and could use our help. We haven’t heard much from him since his transfer to Warren Correctional, and it wasn’t until one of us visited him yesterday that we fully understood why. His access to communication has been frustrated by a whole new set […]
The Fuckweasels at the ODRC seem to have both run out of excuses for silencing Sean, and realized that suspending his communication access indefinitely without investigation or slightest pretext of a rationale is going to make it hard for even the boot-licking federal judges to decide the civil rights lawsuit in their favor.
The communications […]
