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” (Bill Dunne).

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 fit this definition are then typically contacted to get permission to be placed on the following list of people we support in occupied Turtle Island. We also help admin a comprehensive international database of political prisoners.
