Melbourne: Banner Action in Solidarity with the Hunger Strikers in Sofia Prison, Bulgaria

– On Tuesday, January 30th, a small group of anarchists and antifascists gathered in Narrm / Melbourne, so-called Australia to express their solidarity with the ongoing hunger strike by the prisoners in Sofia Prison, Bulgaria. 30 prisoners have been on hunger strike since January 27th in response to the policies of the corrupt prison director Peter Krestev who is trying to stamp out symbolic protests for basic human rights.

VICTORY TO THE HUNGER STRIKERS!
VICTORY TO THE BULGARIAN PRISONERS’ ASSOCIATION!
SOLIDARITY WITH ANTIFASCIST PRISONER COMRADE JOCK PALFREEMAN!

A letter from Jock Palfreeman – Australian anti-fascist prisoner on hunger strike

Indymedia: Australian Anti-fascist prisoner Jock Palfreeman, serving 20 years in Sofia/Bulgaria for defending two Roma boys from a racist mob, is on hungerstrike from 13th January 2013 because the Director of the Central Sofia Prison has ordered another punishment measure because of Jock´s activist work as chairman of the Bulgarian Prisoner´s Association.

Due to this punishment Jock is now not allowed to finish his studies which is very important to him.

Jock’s health is rapidly worsening as he continues his hunger strike and he is not even allowed to see a doctor as yet another repressive measure by the prison authorities.

He asks for solidarity from all of you by sending a letter to the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice. Please start putting pressure now before it’s too late. Jock needs our support!
