Don’t forget the (antifascist) prisoners!

Posted: September 12, 2011 in Prisoners

 

“Knowing there’s guys and girls like you on the outside supporting us makes such a difference…It’s really nice not to be forgotten and I’ll be eternally grateful to everyone.” – Ravi Gill

At the end of June, six antifascists were sent to jail for between fifteen and twenty one months on trumped-up ‘conspiracy’ charges. All are long-standing activists who deserve to be supported.

Austen and Thomas are still being held in Wormwood Scrubs prison in London, while the others have been moved to separate jails in the south of England.

Please send them letters of support at the addresses given below. They may each receive postage stamps and Postal Orders (made payable to ‘The Governor’ and with the prisoner’s name and prison number written on the back). For advice on writing to prisoners please see the Leeds ABC website.

A solidarity fund has been set up to support the prisoners in jail and upon release. It is administered by Leeds Anarchist Black Cross, a long-standing and reputable prisoner support organisation, and the fund will ONLY be used to support the prisoners directly. If you would like to contribute to the fund please send a cheque (made payable to ‘The Cable Street Society’) to Leeds ABC, 145-149 Cardigan Road, Leeds, LS6 1LJ. Details for bank transfers are:

The Cable Street Society
Sort Code 070093
Account number 33333334
Ref 0827/704169523

We would like to thank the groups and individuals who have already contributed to the solidarity fund, including Antifa England, Brighton & Hove TUC Unemployed Workers Centre, Bristol ABC, Kate Sharpley Library , and Rebel Soul (Shambala Festival).

The Anarchist print co-op Sabcat have also produced two benefit T-shirts in support of the prisoners (designs above). They are printed on organic cotton, fair wear, carbon neutral, Earth Positive T-shirts and cost £14.95 including UK postage. Sabcat are donating their labour for free, so apart from the cost of the unprinted garment itself and the postage, all money raised goes to the antifascist prisoners support fund. To order a T-shirt check out the Sabcat website at http://www.sabcat.com. They will also be available to buy at this year’s London Anarchist Bookfair.
