Prisoner Contact List

WHO ARE PP/POWS?

Briefly, Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War (PP/POWs) are “those persons incarcerated as a result of political beliefs or actions consciously undertaken and intended to resist exploitation and oppression, and/or hasten the implementation of an egalitarian, sustainable, ethical, classless society, predicated on self determination and maximization of all people’s freedom.² (Bill Dunne)

Prisoners incarcerated as a result of non-politically motivated “crime” and became political while in prison are not Political Prisoners or Prisoners of War. Though all prisoners righteously struggling against the repressive prison system should be supported, PP/POWs deserve the priority support of the revolutionary movement that they have sacrificed their freedom to build. As anarchist POW Ojore Lutalo has stated, “Any political movement that does not support its political internees is a sham movement!”
Prior to being placed on this list, each Prisoner¹s case is reviewed to determine whether they fit into the definition of Political Prisoners or Prisoner of War set forth by the Special International Tribunal on the Violation of Human Rights of Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War. Prisoners who fall into this definition are then contacted to get permission to be placed on the list. The ABCF will not place a prisoner on our list without their permission even though they may be recognized by other prisoner support organizations. Not all Political Prisoners or Prisoners of War wish to be placed on prisoner support lists and the ABCF respects their decision.

Restrictions and criteria for visiting Federal and State prisons are different. Generally, it is easier to visit state prisoners. Visiting conditions are usually better at Federal prisons. Listed below are some of the different guidelines for visiting Federal/State prisoners, and some guidelines useful to visit any prisoner.

Federal Prisons. To visit Federal prisoners, you must first be approved by filling out a form that the prisoner must send you in advance. Only people who say they had a relationship to a federal prisoner prior to their imprisonment can be approved. Usually, the prison will not approve people who say they visit other prisoners. Once you complete and mail the form to the prisoners counselor, the prisoner will tell you if you have been approved or denied.

State Prisons. Some state prisons require you to be placed on an approved visitors list but most do not. Contact the state prisoner you want to see and have them fill you in on the procedures of the particular prison they are held. Some state prisoners may receive food packages. Check with the prisoner for restrictions on what they can receive.

Before visiting any prisoner, write to them, be considerate and send a postal money order to the BOP (if a Federal prisoner) made payable to the prisoners name and number so they can buy stamps to reply (most prisons DO NOT allow you to send stamps). Ask all questions through the mail before your visit. Ask about visiting days/hours, dress codes, maximum number of visitors allowed per visit, about getting photos of your visit, and anything else you can think of. You wont be allowed to visit without presenting a valid photo ID like a drivers license or county ID. Bring small bills or change for the vending machines in the visiting room.

If you have any further questions you’d like answered before writing to the prisoner, more information about any of the prisoners, or would like to meet up with one of us to go on a visit, please feel free to contact us.
