On the 19.07.20, the 8th birthday of the Rojava Revolution, we unfurled these banners as a small gesture to the brave Kurdish women warriors of the YPJ, and remembering too the brave Gunai warriors past & present who resist this hell colony known as gippsland / australia. A few queer punks with a plan to escape the industrial hellscape for the afternoon, only to find ourselves at a pumping station along a river at the foothills of the Baw Baws, behind Energy Australia’s filthy coal power stations. Downstream where the water stagnates, overtaken by weeds, and 4WD’s rip up the earth beneath the towering gums, the surrounding hills long cleared and farmed. And yet in spite of this colonial violence, life exists, eco-systems persist. We realise our banners are no great threat to the colonial project, we humbly share them with the intention to show our love and respect for the Rojava revolution and Indigenous resistance worldwide – from the occupied territories of the Gunai Kurnai Nation to Kurdistan and beyond.
Smash the settler state, death to colonialism, long live resistance! (A)

“From 2010 until today, the Solidarity Fund has been trying to obtain a regular and consistent political, moral and material support for collecting funds, which derives primarily from the conscious participation of each and every one of us, as well as from groups and collectives, that contribute to the continuation of factual solidarity. Continued state repression, however, results in a large number of political prisoners and legal costs, and consequently, in particularly high material needs. At this moment, the Solidarity Fund supports 24 prisoners on a regular monthly basis.
In many cases we also try to cover -as much as our (financial) capabilities allow-the legal expenses and bails of comrades who are persecuted for their political identity, their actions or even for their family or comrade relationship with imprisoned militants. ~ The slogan “no one left alone in the hands of the state” is becoming more crucial and tangible these days than ever. We urge you to defend it once again in practice. Factual solidarity will again be our weapon. UP UNTIL THE DEMOLITION OF THE LAST PRISON NONE OF US IS FREE SOLIDARITY WITH POLITICAL PRISONERS ” Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted militants, 2020

This Thursday 5th December at Cafe Gummo! Fundraiser for the Anti-Repression Assembly (Athens). PRQW merch will be available to purchase on the night, all proceeds going to the Anti-Repression Assembly.
The Anti-Repression Assembly is a network of anarchists, refugees and comrades resisting dual forces of state violence and corporate gentrification. They work to defend squats, parks, and other self governed / alternative collective organisation sites in Exarchia and across central and suburban Athens. Since the economic and refugee ‘crises’ inflicted deeper strain on poor and stateless populations across the Mediterranean, Exarchia has been a beacon for working alternatives, with thousands of refugees seeking asylum and finding new ways to live and economise outside inhumane border force control and other systems of intra-state oppression. Since April 2019, however, riot and military police, under the direction of the Greek Government have been violently cracking down on this resistance network. Many have been arrested, harmed, deported and arbitrarily detained.
This fundraiser seeks to support the Anti-Repression Assembly in their fight for collective self-organisation. Money raised will go to cover legal costs, food, and other organisational needs.
Latrobe Valley, So-Called Australia: Banner Action in Solidarity with West Papua
Received on 26.08.19:
A banner with the slogan “Free West Papua” was hung over a bridge on the Princes Freeway, on lands of the Brayakooloong people of the Gunai Kurnai Nation in so-called Moe / Latrobe Valley, Gippsland, southeast Victoria. This small gesture of solidarity was carried out in response to the ongoing Peoples’ Uprising in West Papua.
“Our people have embraced the revolution with great sacrifice and a great price paid. Our people have stood with the fighters at every turn, and worked hard to grow and protect the revolution.
