July 25th: international day of solidarity with anti-fascist prisoners

A few suggestions for things you can do to mark the international day of solidarity with anti-fascist prisoners on July 25th:

If you’re in the UK, you might want to contact Kent Anti-Racism Network to see if there’s anything you can do to support their comrade who was jailed earlier this year for confronting nazis in Dover.

Mike Williams is currently being held in Sacramento jail awaiting trial on charges related to his alleged participation in a clash with fascist groups last year. You can donate to help bail him out here (his bail was initially set at a totally ludicrous amount, but that’s hopefully being changed to something more realistic), or send him a letter or card at

Michael Williams X-313910 8E313A
Sacramento County Main Jail
651 I Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
USA

It’s always wise to remember that post going into jails and prisons is monitored, but that goes double for people who are awaiting trial – please be careful not to say anything that could potentially be useful to prosecutors, or that you wouldn’t like to hear read out in court.

There’s also a list of other antifa prisoners here you can write to.

Jock Palfreeman has requested that people mark the occasion by doing something to help the prison union he’s involved with, the Bulgarian Prisoners’ Association. The absolute easiest way to do that is by just sharing their facebook page to boost their visibility, but if you feel able to donate to help their work, you can send a few euros via paypal to contact@bpra.info (or use the donation button on their site). He also requests that “supporters write letters to the Vice-Minister of Justice urging him to meet with and work with our outside representative of the Bulgarian Prisoners’ Association, Head Secretary Valentin Ivanov” – you can send letters to

Nikolai Prodanov, Vice-Minister of Justice
Ministry of Justice,
Slaviyanska 1 Street,
1000, Sofia
Bulgaria

These email addresses should hopefully go to someone in the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice:

priemna@justice.government.bg, pr@justice.government.bgk_panova@justice.government.bg, Terziivanov@justice.government.bg.

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."
