I missed this at the time, but the Legal Defence & Monitoring Group report that Liam Harriman was jailed at the end of July, with a sentence of 16 weeks, of which he’s likely to serve 8. He was arrested at the protests against the G8 in London last summer. Please support him. You can write to him directly:
Liam Harriman (A0131DG)
London N7 8TT
You can also use the web site emailaprisoner.com to write via the internet, messages get printed out and given to prisoners the next day.
Prison is one of the harshest weapons the state has available for crushing dissent. In turn, prisoner solidarity is one of the most effective things we can do to undermine the power of that weapon. If we’re serious about building movements for social change that don’t just collapse as soon as our rulers decide we’ve gone too far, then we all need to make sure that we support our prisoners.
