We would like to write letters to people in prison together with you in the context of the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners.
We take the Soli-Week as an opportunity to remember our comrades who are in prison for their political struggle and who continue to fight for their ideals there.
Social isolation from friends, family and society is one aspect of everyday life in prison. There are few channels of communication and few opportunities to interact outside the prison walls. The pandemic has reinforced the social isolation since March 2020.
The prison regime is violent and often even more repressive toward political prisoners.
Writing letters is therefore a vital means of exchange even in the 21st century, when most of our society here communicates almost exclusively digitally. Letters bring variety into the gray everyday life in prison, enable conversations, social interaction and show that we have not forgotten our companions. We give them courage not to let the violent prison life get them down.
Therefore, we invite you to the Solidaritea – the letter-writing café on Friday, August 26, 5 pm at Malobeo, to write letters together to our companions in prison.
