Several weeks before the new year we are going to gather together to write letters to our comrades and friends who are sitting in jails all around the world. Those people in their pursue of the better world were caught, prosecuted and sent to prisons. We believe that this is our responsibility to support our comrades with the fire of solidarity that will help them to walk through the darkness of repressions.
This evening each of us will have a possibility to learn the stories of incarcerated comrades and write letters or postcards for them. We hope that you will join us at least for a couple of minutes to write several lines that sometimes can be warmer for the prisoner than the winter blanket.
During the letter writing evening we will have tea and cake.
All around the world there are many people who were incarcerated by the states for their political struggle. They are claimed to be enemies of the society and for that are locked down in cells where they have to spend time on their own or with people who got the same label.
While those people are spending their time in Jail we are continuing our lives as if nothing had happened. However we do share our dreams with those people. We do strive for the same goals and the fact that they were caught by the repressiv system should not destroy the comradeship that is built withing our political movements.
We all know that people in prisons need support. Daily, hourly they have to struggle with the authority and we can help them in that with our support.
As part of the global week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners we will have an evening where you will hear the stories of anarchists who were imprisoned for different terms and are now separated from their comrades. We will write letters of support to the people all around the world to let them know they are not alone and they were not forgotten.
If you wanna introduce a special person with their story, just bring it with you.
