“For the 11th year in a row, anarchists and other rebels gathered on New Year’s eve to march on the Barton Jail. This is an international tradition, rooted in showing our disgust for prisons and their world and our solidarity with all prisoners”

Another year, another noise demonstration outside prisons near Montreal. At a time of year that’s particularly tough to be locked up, 200 people made noise and lit off fireworks outside barbed wire fences to remind those inside they’re not alone.

Until they’re all free ✊
