International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

This week of solidarity is coming soon, here is the call out.

his year, the International solidarity week for anarchist prisoners
will be spent for the fifth time in 23rd to 30th August and we come
stronger than ever!

Some political prisoners are already supported, but far from all of
them. Also, the supported are usually involved in authoritarian politics
and not grassroots activities. Anarchist prisoners are not often
well-known people, even though they might be long term activists. Their
ways to fight back oppressors and wrongdoings are not necessary
following the current laws of their location, which is judged by some
authoritarian organizations. The vast amount and diversity of cases of
anarchist prisoners is surprising to many.

We wanted to choose a week, so that it would be easy as possible to
organize different kinds of expressions of solidarity, which would be
supported by one another. The beginning of the week was chosen to be the
execution date of Sacco and Vanzetti, two Italian-American anarchists,
in 1927. They were convicted with very little amount of evidence, and
many still consider that they were punished from their anarchist views.

Welcome to join!

Solidarity can express itself in many forms.
