4 June 2018 – On the 9th of April 2018, Astro Labe, an anarchist from Tasmania was given a six month prison sentence for headbutting Tony Abbott, the former Prime Minister of Australia back in September 2017.
In response, some anarchists in Sydney launched a solidarity campaign demanding his release.
Throughout April and May, dozens of solidarity slogans were painted over walls and hung from highway bridges and hundreds of #FreeAstro posters and stickers were spread throughout various suburbs of Sydney.
Fuck Tony Abbott, Astro Labe is a hero.
Free every Prisoner, Headbutt every Pollie!
