Over the years, June 11th Day Of Solidarity with Marius Mason and All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners has supported and highlighted dozens of prisoners. More recently we have been trying to include more prisoners from outside the U.S. to avoid falling into the easy path of U.S-centrism and to more faithfully represent the rich, expansive anarchist and anti-authoritarian struggles across the globe.

long term prisoner support
From Tormentas de Fogo
Last September, at the 4th Military Prosecutor’s Office in Santiago, the refusal of the petition to prescribe the sentences made by our comrade Marcelo several months ago was notified.
Immediately, Marcelo appealed to this refusal, leaving the resolution of the appeal in the hands of the Martial Court, where it was reaffirmed in the first days of October.
These condemnations correspond to some causes originated by actions framed in his old militancy at the “Mapu-lautaro”, organization in which our comrade was an active fighter since a very young age and of which, while imprisoned, in 1995, he was expelled because of “anarchist deviations”.

(A statement for the June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners)
First, I’d like to give warm revolutionary greetings to all those who have shown solidarity and supported me. Without that solidarity and support, I don’t know how I would have survived for so long.
Gender Anarky has always been a two-prong resistance within the prison construct: a fighting aspect, and a diplomatic aspect. We are well established in both of these sectors: we have a militia presence on the yards, and we are doing work within the prison administration and in the courts on issues we have as trans females, which basically involves paperwork - complaints, petitions, lawsuits, outreach. We also have a public information sector that facilitates the production and distribution of our free literature to prisoners and others through our website and post box.
