Noise Demo. HMP Brixton. 5th June

At Her Majesty’s Pleasure? Stuff that!

London Anarchist Black Cross have organised a demo in solidarity with prisoners at HMP Brixton.

Because frankly we don’t feel like celebrating 60 years of having a queen, especially a queen who takes pleasure from imprisoning our mates, comrades, and other fellow human beings. What kind of a sick mind takes pleasure from locking people up in prison? Prisons destroy people. They destroy families, friendships, and communities. Putting somebody in prison is an act of violence which only brutalises those who are already struggling.

We don’t believe that prison is the answer to any question we have ever asked.

Show the people inside HMP Brixton that they are not alone or forgotten.

Organise for a noisy demo at HMP Brixton. Meet at Brixton Tube, 3pm to walk up to the prison together. Bring whistles, horns and drums.

I think this demo will get a some slightly bad tempered attention from the Met.

The term Jubilee originates from some old Biblical bollocks:

‘The Jubilee (Hebrew yovel יובל) year is the year at the end of seven cycles of Sabbatical years (Hebrew Shmita).’

‘The Year of the Jubilee involved a year of release from indebtedness and all types of bondage. All prisoners and captives were set free, all slaves were released,’

To give the impression of generosity, leaders and dictators have sometimes released prisoners.

This year North Korea granted an amnesty for prisoners to mark the birthdays of two dead dictators, Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung.

Just before Christmas, in an address before Cuba’s National Assembly, President Raúl Castro announced that the Council of State agreed to pardon more than 2,900 prisoners. The amnesty for prisoners was linked the Pope’s visit and some other religious nonsense.

In France, collective pardons were once a regular feature of Bastille Day and 3,500 prisoners were freed in 2006.
