Sydney: Solidarity Actions Against the North Wales Mega Prison
In response to a call for a week of actions against the North Wales mega prison, some anarchists in Sydney made some small actions.
The primary contractor involved in the project is Lendlease, an Australian construction company. In Sydney Lendlease is currently involved in a huge casino project called Barangaroo. The project has major state government backing and is responsible for the social cleansing of Millers Point, the last working working class district in inner Sydney.
Over the past two years there has been consistent resistance to the project and to the eviction and sell-off of the remaining social housing in the area. Numerous buildings in the area have been squatted, and the struggle continues.
Over the first week of November dozens of slogans against Lendlease and its projects were painted on walls across Sydney. Lendlease banners were torn down from their construction sites, repainted and hung from highway bridges.
We wish solidarity to our comrades in Wales and all those fighting for a world without prison.
Neither prisons nor casinos.
