In response to escalating human rights violations, activists from around the world have decided to initiate a Day in Solidarity with Political Prisoners Worldwide.
Donato Continente, a recently released political prisoner from the Philippines explains: “It’s time we took a united and international approach to the freeing of political activists and freedom fighters - it’s essential that we share our experiences and that we mount international campaigns.”

Simultaneous events will take place in 25 countries around the world including the Philippines, Turkey, Mexico, Croatia, Spain and other cities around North America, such as Vancouver, BC, Oakland, CA, Bellingham, WA, Philadelphia, PA, and New York City.
At this time of increasing repression, we encourage you to attend an event celebrating political prisoners here and around the world. It will be an interesting and invigorating afternoon as we join together to build our collective strength for the present and future efforts to defend and free all political prisoners.

damn, it's been what, 40 years since the fbi's COINTELPRO shenanigans got these warriors for justice all twisted up, harassed, framed, locked up and killed? and not only are our comrades still buried away without medical necessities, without legal aid, or community support- the numbers of political prisoners are only increasing with this so-called war on terror.

like i said, it's about time we shed some light on these injustices, and got organized to get these courageous and inspiring people free. the contributions they can make to our movements are incalculable.

yes, let us remember the international political prisoners at this time of year. Remember the still imprisoned brothers of the Ohio7. Solidarity is not an act of charity it is our duty to those who have beeb sidelined from the struggle.

"solidarity is our duty" HA! what a bunch of franco german lutheran christian bullshit!

And before you BIMC lesbian spic retards delete this, get a fucking history book, because it's true.

The only reason solidarists say "duty" is because they are uncomfortable with the term "social debt." They are socialists in drag.

You tired fucking Boston peons really need to read a book so you'll know that you are repeating senseless garbage cloned from the scum pit of 1800's Europe.

Your milk fed honkey asses can't even plagiarize well. Fuck solidarism and fuck you!
