Today, 09.09.16, a small group of anarchists demonstrated at the US Consulate in Narrm / Melbourne, so-called ‘Australia’ in solidarity with the September 9 Nationwide US Prisoner Strike Against Prison Slavery.

A banner was unfurled at the entrance to the consulate that read: “SOLIDARITY WITH THE PRISON STRIKERS” and comrades began yelling several slogans including: “LAND OF THE FREE, HOME OF THE BRAVE, WHY DO YOU STILL HAVE FUCKIN’ SLAVES?” and “BURN THE BANKS, BURN THE PRISONS, JUST MAKE SURE THE COPS ARE IN THEM!”

In response to the demonstration and some of the comrades taking photos, the consulate staff locked the doors and turned the lights off inside the consulate, presumably as some kind of paranoid security measure. Officers from the AFP (Australian Federal Police) observed the demonstration but did not intervene or make any arrests.

A comrade read out the original declaration announcing the prisoner strike, some more slogans were chanted, then the comrades left as a group behind the banner, still chanting. As the comrades left the vicinity of the consulate an AFP car pulled up and an officer got out and attempted to ask for names and the reason for the protest however they were completely ignored and the comrades were able to leave the area without any problems.
