Received on 28/08/2018:

In the context of the annual week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners, some anarchists in Sydney visited the Indonesian consulate in Maroubra on Thursday the 23rd of August.

A banner was tied to the fence around the consulate reading: “Bebaskan tahanan perang kelas di Yogya” (Freedom for class war prisoners in Yogyakarta). Dozens of leaflets were also distributed and scattered outside the embassy.

Anarchists in Yogyakarta have faced a wave of repression following the 2018 May Day demonstration, which saw flaming barricades in the streets, a police post torched and a call for the local Sultan to be killed.

Dozens of anarchists and class war comrades were arrested following the demonstration and a number of them are still in prison facing trail.

We wish solidarity and strength to all anarchist and revolutionary prisoners in Indonesia and worldwide.

On the 4th of July 2018 some anarchists in Sydney painted a memorial piece for Dan Shersty and Lin (Spit) Newborn.

Dan and Spit were young anti-fascist skinheads, punk musicians, and founding members of the Las Vegas chapter of Anti-Racist Action.

On the 4th of July 1998 they were lured into the desert on the outskirts of Vegas and gunned down by a gang of 6 white supremacists, murdered by six known white supremacist, only three of whom ever served time for the murders.

Twenty years on, their memory is kept alive in the daily struggle against racism and fascist terror.
