Hello friends:
Our imprisoned comrade Amadeu Casellas Ramón has been on hunger strike for 35 days(since last June 23th) and he needs our support and solidarity more than ever.
Amadeu Casellas is a well known anarchist prisoner. Amadeu has already spent 25 years in jail, in fact he has spent more prison time than any other prisoner in Catalonia. He joined many collective protests, hunger strikes, rebellions,etc and suffered a lot of torture and reprisals as a direct consecuence of his continual confrontation against the system. Now Amadeu thinks that it's time to be released, but the prison authorities don't want to release him so he decided to take a step forward again and started an indefinite hunger strike. Amadeu said that his only options are freedom or death. He's already at the sickbay of Quatre Camins prison and his health is going worse and worse everyday.
That's why we ask you to join a campaign to ask for the release of Amadeu.
We send you here Faxes and telephone numbers and addresses to send to the courtcase, judges and penitentiary services of Catalonia. To see the text that you must send and the places where to remit that protest-text just click on the link below.
