Support Our Six Proud Antifascists : Leeds ABC

Support Our Six Proud Antifascists

“Knowing there’s guys and girls like you on the outside supporting us makes such a difference…It’s really nice not to be forgotten and I’ll be eternally grateful to everyone.” – Ravi Gill

Leeds ABC are an experienced prisoner support group, but with six of our close friends and comrades sent to jail recently, fitted-up for being antifascists, it’s been a stressful time for us. Unfortunately most of the stress has not come from building an effective solidarity campaign for our imprisoned comrades, but from fighting a rear-guard action against those trying to prevent that support. This has wasted a huge amount of time, energy, and personal resources, all of which could have been better spent supporting our prisoners. All sorts of stupid lies and rumours have been circulated, we were repeatedly told for example that none of the prisoners wanted support, that their numbers were all wrong, or that Phil De Souza wanted to be removed from our list of prisoners. All these tales are UNTRUE.

We were gratified to receive a large wad of mail from the prisoners today enthusiastically thanking us for our support. They are absolutely unequivocal in saying that they want to be listed and supported as antifascist prisoners.

While astonished that they were convicted, all remain strong and thank everyone for the support they have received. Their main complaint, apart from being fitted-up, is about the notoriously bad food at Wormwood Scrubs!

These comrades have been fitted-up and deserve our fullest possible support. Please write to them or send a solidarity card (advice on writing to prisoners can be found on the Leeds ABC website). Please send a stamped self-addressed envelope if you would like a reply, or if you can afford it they can receive stamps, stationery, and postal orders (made payable to ‘The Governor’). They can also receive books sent via Amazon.

A solidarity fund has been established for the imprisoned antifascists. If you would like to donate to it please send a cheque made payable to the ‘The Cable Street Society’ to Leeds ABC, 145-149 Cardigan Road, Leeds, LS6 1LJ. Bank details and a PayPal option will be up on the Leeds ABC website within a few days.

We can only hope that those with nothing better to do than spread silly rumours undermining support for our six imprisoned antifascists will now either become involved in supporting them or go and do something else other than making our work as a prisoner support group harder. We would like to thank Indymedia for their support and patience during what has been a confusing period, without Indymedia the prisoners would not have received the support they have.

The prisoners’ details are as follows. As always, assume your letters are being read by our enemies and ensure you do not compromise your own security or that of others. Also please note that Thomas Blak and Austin Jackson are as yet unsentenced.

About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2021 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
