Wildfire #4

From Wildfire:

[Download Issue #4] (Prints 8.5×11)

Here’s the fourth issue of Wildfire. We’re a little late in posting it online because, well, we’ve been busy. Prison struggle in the U.S. is heating up and spreading. Coordinated action is being called for September 9th, with work stoppages being planned in multiple states. June 11th, the international day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoners, is just weeks away. Rebels throughout the world have their sights on the end of this prison society and the flowering of total freedom in its wake. We’d like to write more, but we’ll let this issue of Wildfire speak for itself.

We send solidarity to Tato and Javier, anarchists recently found guilty by the Chilean state of burning a Transantiago bus.

Toward a hot, hot summer & dancing on the rubble where the prisons used to be.
