Antifascist Prisoner Thomas Blak Released – But Deported
Posted on November 17, 2011 by leedsabc
Antifascist prisoner Thomas Blak, one of the seven antifascists fitted up in the first Welling trial, has been freed but deported to his home country of Denmark.
Thomas was sent to jail in June, along with five other comrades. Sentences varied from 15-21 months, with Thomas receiving 18 months.
Thomas was refused release on electronic tag, and despite having lived and worked in London for 15 years, he was this week deported.
The five other antifascists remain in jail and it is clear that having failed to fit up any of those in the second Welling trial, the State are determined to punish those they did fit up to the best of their ability.
We hope to publish a statement from Thomas shortly, and in the meantime send him our respect and solidarity. Having been staunch in the face of the State’s attempts to criminalise antifascism, he can hold his head up high.
