Actforfree received on 29.10.18
On 19 October our two comrades were arrested because of a court
sentence given to them for taking part in anarchist protest against
European Economic Congress (EEC) 2015 which was held in Katowice.
Our friends where sentenced to community services because of the crime
called “infringement of privacy”. They were protesting in empty
abandoned tenement house which was city property. They wanted to protest
against the inherent contradiction between empty property and
homelessness and to show injustice of savage capitalism.
Arrest is a consequence of avoiding these community services.
One of activists went to prison for 2 months till 15 of December. He
is kept in prison in Tarnowskie Góry (Silesian region). From the very
beginning he started hunger strike, because he doesn’t have possibility
to eat vegan food. Administration refused to pass him warm clothes. The
cell is not heated and he has no any jacket. According to official
rules, prison keeps 50% of all money income. Anyway, director of this
penal facility doesn’t allow him to use prison shop, or to buy food for
him during dates with visitors.
About the other detainee we have no information. Police didn’t want to
inform anybody about his situation, because of formal causes
(administration refuse to allow him date with relatives, because he
doesn’t remember the exact address of their place of residence). that is
why we don’t know the condition of his imprisonment
