Anarchist Black Cross Osaka: We denounce the arrest of our comrade, Tabi Rounin! Release him now!

On the morning of June 4th, 2008, comrade Tabi Rounin, a squatter
liberation activist, was arrested on the charge of “Illegal Address
Registration” (in other words, living somewhere he is not
registered to live at). His house was searched and more than 14
items were taken including his computer, his phone, resume and
flyers. Clearly searching someone’s house simply because their
address is still registered at their parents’ house goes beyond
simple police work.

This is pre-emptive repression with one eye towards the economic
summit being held on June 14th and 15th. He is currently being held
in Koriyama police station in Nara prefecture and in 5 days will be
put in front of the judge. There are hundreds of people every year
who have their IDs registered to their family’s residence. To be
arrested on ‘Illegal Address Registration’ is unheard of beyond
political repression.

Tabi Rounin had stopped his activity within Osaka city, where the
high class apartment buildings of the rich stretch on for miles,
and had been active around the working class cities and suburbs
around Osaka and Kawachi, connecting to squatters with no organized
political presence or assistance, connecting to foreigners working
for low wages in factories around his area. He is a working class
revolutionary from the roots who fought an isolated battle. There
are many anarchists overseas who have found sympathy with his
selfless style of activity.

We fiercely protest this repression against the movement that we
have helped build! Police, release Tabi Rounin immediately!
