Ladislav Kuc was arrested in Slovakia in 2012 and has been serving a prison sentence ever since. He was accused of illegal possession of arms, manufacturing explosives, and terrorism for a bombing in front of a McDonald’s on December 28, 2011, in which there were no injuries. During a house search police found materials related to ALF and components for another bomb.
His prison term is nearing the end but his case has not been publicised extensively so not many folks have heard about him, and he still has fines to pay upon his release. He is scheduled for release on January 1st, 2023!
Our comrades at PhillyABC have organised a “welcome home” fundraiser to try and help when he is released and they are in contact with a Slovak solicitor who might be able to help mitigate Ladislav’s upcoming fines.
If you can afford it, please donate to the crowdfunder for Ladislav, which you can find here: fundrazr.com/027Cec
All donations will be sent to Ladislav to help him with basic expenses adjusting to life outside of prison and welcome him back with his family and community. A prison sentence doesn’t just rob you of your freedom and can seriously impact your health and your finances. Supporting Ladislav right now is ensuring that he is able to find his feet after more than a decade in prison.
Consider chucking a few coins as a winter solstice present and share the fundraiser around as much as you possibly can! Lastly, it would be amazing if you could send one last letter to Ladislav, just to let him know that people outside are still thinking about him and that he has not been forgotten. Coming out of over a decade of prison can be a real whirlwind of emotions and knowing that people outside have his back will certainly help.
Write a quick letter or a postcard, pop it in the mail with fast delivery and lets all show solidarity to Ladislav as he is released from the jaws of the state.

PS: Slovakian friends and comrades, if any of you is reading this, please get in touch! Let’s organise and ensure Ladislav has a local network he can rely on upon his release!
