Maddy Pfeiffer jailed for silence

The latest news from the US state’s ongoing campaign against activists is that Maddy Pfeiffer has now been jailed for their refusal to co-operate. Together with Matt Duran and Katherine Olejnik, this means that three anarchist comrades are now being held in a Seattle prison solely for refusing to snitch on other anarchists. In addition, five other people are now facing actual charges.
Maddy, KteeO and Matt could leave prison at any time if they chose to inform; faced with that kind of pressure, their courage and silence is inspirational. Their bravery helps to protect other radicals from repression, and they deserve all the support we can give them.
You can write to Maddy at
Matthew Pfeiffer #42421-086
FDC SeaTac
P.O. Box 13900
Seattle, WA 98198
Apparently Maddy can’t read cursive (if you’re not sure what that is, cos I wasn’t, apparently it’s American-speak for joined-up writing), so if possible you should type your letter, or if you can’t do that write in plain, non-joined-up letters. To be on the safe side, it might be best to write in all-caps.
The addresses of the other two resisters are:
Matthew Kyle Duran #42565-086
FDC SeaTac
P.O. Box 13900
Seattle, WA 98198
Katherine Olejnik #42592-086
FDC SeaTac,
P.O. Box 13900
Seattle, WA 98198

Make sure that your name and return address, as well as the resister’s full name and inmate number, are included on the envelope and all pages of the letter. There is no limit on how many letters they are allowed to have in their cell at any one time. They are allowed to have up to 20 photographs in their cell at once, so send them pictures too! No Polaroids though. Letters should be written in pen on clean and plain lined paper. Letters have been turned away in the past due to small stains from coffee spills, etc., so make sure the paper is immaculate.

Please don’t write about anything potentially incriminating. For more tips on how to write to a prisoner for the first time, see this article:How to Write Your First Letter to Someone in Prison.

If you’ve got a bit of spare cash, which admittedly is a bit unlikely at this time of year, you can help support them by buying t-shirts and badges here, or prints and posters here. If, like most people, you’re broke at the moment, you might want to make a note to have a look at those sites when you next get paid, since I’m sure they’ll still need the money then.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
