The juridical authorities give the strong impression that conditional release is only granted to broken and/or conformist prisoners. This tendency can be observed with nearly all political prisoners: prisoners defending their political identity are buried alive in prison although they have served their sentence already, with the only purpose of weakening them and the progressive movements they come from, and to keep up the fear of prison. Some examples among many: Leonard Peltier in the States, Action Directe prisoners in France, the Basque prisoners in the Spanish state.
Together with the International Red Aid, we therefore call for international solidarity with Marco and all long-standing prisoners in other countries. We do not want to lose the prospect of a society without prisons.
International day of action on September 18 2010.
Solidarity is a weapon!
