The conditions in Bavarian prisons

Gezeichnetes Bild von Jan

Descriptions from the Jamnitzer Solikreis on the situation in the Bayreuth correctional facility

We haven’t just known that prison sucks since today. We also know that the conditions in prisons are hardly bearable and that prisons do not achieve what they are supposed to according to the law. Nevertheless, it is always shocking to hear how prisoners are treated. The only daily contact with the outside world is the view out of the window. But there’s not much to see in Bayreuth, because the prison relies on double-glazed windows.

With power through the wall – against social isolation!


Call for a rally at the Chemnitz Women’s Prison of the anarchist feminist anti-prison alliance

On March 6, two days before the international feminist day of struggle, we will demonstrate in front of the Chemnitz Women’s Prison. We want to show the women and Queers imprisoned there: You are not alone! We know that you feel the oppression, the violence and the exploitation in our society. But we also see how many of you fight back, stand up for your rights and help each other – and we stand by your side.

The occasion for our rally is March 8, the international feminist day of struggle. All over the world, women and queers, i.e. people of other genders such as trans and inter people, are taking to the streets to protest the ongoing oppression by men and by a patriarchal system.We are standing shoulder to shoulder around the world against physical, psychological and sexual violence, against the multitude of murders of women, against unpaid domestic and care work, against lower pay, against discrimination, against being forced to marry and have children, against the ban on abortion and against many problems of the system in which we live.

New Year’s Eve before prison

The year is drawing to a close. In many places this year, too people fought for freedom and a life in dignity. How many of them are now imprisoned? No matter whether it is because of poverty, precarious living conditions or through their political struggle, no person belongs behind bars. On Dec. 31, 2021, let us show the imprisoned people that they are not alone. During the time of year that many spend with their loved ones the isolation and loneliness in prison is especially great. Come with us to Hammerweg prison (JVA Dresden), together we will break through the isolation of the gray walls. For a solidarity without borders!

Where: JVA Dresden, (Wanderweg Am Robinienhain)
When: 17 Uhr 31.12.2021

10 Arguments against Prison

Prison means isolation, alienation, poverty and violence. Prison is a method used by the state to deal with social problems. Prison is supposed to punish, scare and “resocialize” you, i.e. reintegrate you into society. But you have hardly any opportunity for self-determination and are isolated from the rest of society. Every third person ends up back inside after release. Prison is a violent and monotonous place. The authoritarian penal system reinforces discrimination and economic exploitation. Jails therefore do not serve to reduce violent behavior between people, but rather reinforce it.
