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.

 

Prior to being supported by the ABCF, each prisoner’s 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 typically contacted to get permission to be placed on the list.

 

We no longer maintain a lists of addresses here for the prisoners we support and encourage you to look up prisoners on prisonersolidarity.net, the new international database of political prisoners we helped create and maintain. You can find their addresses, case statuses, birthdays and much more there.  Links to historical background and information on some of the long-term political prisoners we support is also available on the web archive of our old website.
