Prisoner Support

Keeping in touch with prisoners is a valuable way to break down the isolation they face. Any movement that seems to pose a serious threat to power will come up against heavy repression sooner or later, and usually sooner, so getting into the habit of supporting prisoners now is a good way to help make sure that we’re ready for more dramatic social upheavals in the future.

If you’ve never written to a prisoner before, have a look at this guide from Brighton Anarchist Black Cross for a few useful tips. The list of prisoners that follows is in no way definitive, it’s just a few cases that have caught my eye for one reason or another.
