Orlando Anarchists Drop Banner Pushing for Rail Strike

Anarchists in Orlando dropped a banner in support of a wildcat rail strike, following the Democratic government’s decision to outlaw a national strike and force through a deal that makes no provision for sick leave days and satisfies almost none of the demands made by rail workers.

Rail unions may yet go on strike, as it appears that they have maintained the authority to organize work stoppages in spite of the injunction passed by Biden and Congress.

Miami, Gainesville Anarchists Drop Banner in Support of Alabama Prison Strike

Anarchists in Miami and Gainesville dropped a banner in solidarity with the Alabama Prisoners’ Strike, condemning the ADOC’s starvation of inmates on strike and targeted persecution against incarcerated organizers fighting for the end of slavery and the release of elders in Alabama prisons. Since the strike began on September 26th, at least 5 strikers have been murdered and thousands of others have been systematically starved, placed in solitary confinement, and severely beaten by guards.



Statement of Solidarity With Anarchist Hunger Striker Giannis Michailidis

The Florida Youth Liberation Front stands in full solidarity with anarchist political prisoner Giannis Michailidis, whose hunger strike for freedom from indefinite imprisonment by the Greek state has now reached a milestone of 67 days. Our message to comrades in Greece and Michailidis himself: we stand in solidarity with the struggle for freedom in territories dominated by the Greek state, and will continue to act in solidarity with this liberatory movement.

Giannis Michailidis is an anarchist insurgent who has served about 50% of his sentence and has obtained parole, having found employment outside the prison walls and seeking the ability to study. In order to prevent him from having the most basic degree of dignity while his neck remains under the boot of the state, the Greek government has framed Michailidis with new charges to keep him in a state of indefinite detention.

Such an obvious injustice has prompted Michailidis to engage in more aggressive messaging to demand his release from indefinite detention via a hunger strike, which he has now endured for 2 months and 6 days. We encourage any anarchists and anti-capitalists reading this to act on their own or in a group in solidarity with Michailidis’ struggle for freedom and liberation from the state.
