After 11 months kidnapped by the state, Victor Puertas, an indigenous forest defender arrested during a festival in Cop City, has been released. He spent three months in DeKalb County jail without bail and then he was transferred to an ICE facility where he was held for another 8 months.
Now that he is free, he could do with some economic help to help him with medical, living and jail recovery expenses, as well as with legal fees to fight the domestic terrorism and RICO charges he is facing. If you can afford it, please drop a couple of coins
Leonard Peltier is a political prisoner who has been incarcerated for 48 years.
Leonard is 79 years old and the prison is neglecting his health. Leonard is in need of immediate medical treatment for the loss of his eyesight.
”Leonard Peltier has recently experienced a significant loss of vision which has required him to implore the help of fellow inmates to do basic things like dialing phone numbers for him to make calls, help type emails, and even help assist him getting around, as he cannot see well enough to walk on his own…”
Unfortunately, Sindre has not received any of the letters that have been sent to him. We do not know if this is due to the centre withholding letters, but he still needs love and support.
Sindre’s support team is therefore changing the address. If you want to write letters, send them to Sindre’s family. They make sure Sindre gets all the letters. Write to:
Sindre Annasson Persson
Rudolf Jonassons väg 25B
(Sindre is an animal rights activist, 21 years old, from so-called Sweden. In October 2023, Sindre was sentenced to forensic psychiatric forced care, without end date, for actions against a former fur farmer.)
Please, send a letter to Sindre today, even if you already did so last week. It is likely the facility is stopping Sindre from receiving the letters that would’ve been sent previously, so the change of address should help ensuring he receives them from now on.
Jack was arrested after an arrest warrant was issued in relation to an arson against a police vehicle fleet related to the Atlanta Forest.
He has been locked without bail and will have to wait until the first hearing to see if he will be released. Until then, you should send him letters of love and support!
Remember to not talk about the case. Instead, chose a topic from the list below:
“Jack loves rock climbing, history, Pilates with Nicole, Buddhism, poetry, vegan prison recipes, hip hop, straight edge, punk, carpentry/diy construction, sewing, he wants to hear anecdotes that felt special to you from just everyday things. You could write about a sunset or a wholesome gathering or a way a song made you feel.”
His birthday is March 1st.
Letters must be:
– black or blue ink only. -any lenght – not discussing the case – containing a return address with a name and surname or name of organisation.

There’s no revolution without solidarity. Fight for our comrades.
Sindre is an animal rights activist, 21 years old, from so-called Sweden. Sindre is a kind and respected comrade in the animal rights community, who has fought against animal abusers in various ways.
In October 2023, Sindre was sentenced to forensic psychiatric forced care. The verdict refers to prosecution for actions in 2021, against the former fur farmer Niklas Pettersson. Sindre denies the alleged crime. Sindre was also sentenced to pay SEK 10,000 in damages to Niklas. The sentence was appealed, but later in 2023 The Court of Appeal upheld the verdict. If Sindre had not been sentenced to forensic psychiatric care, his prison sentence would have been only four months.
Sindre was detained immediately after the trial, on the ninth of October, and has since been imprisoned without an end date. A horrible sentence!
Support Sindre! Help him endure behind bars, let him know he’s not alone. Send letters to the following address:

Over the past years, an animal rights court case has been going on in the UK under a reporting ban, stopping the publicity of it. Folks are now asking for solidarity and support during their sentencing. Read their words below:
“there is an ongoing animal rights case going through the Crown Court, regarding the rescue of animals. there is still a reporting ban in place, so we are extremely limited on the information we can share with you and the questions we can answer. one defendant was recently found “Not Guilty” by the jury, one is still yet to stand trial, one is awaiting a retrial, and three are due to be sentenced at Reading Crown Court on 2nd February 2024. we are calling for a show of support for them in court on this date, please share widely and come along if you can!
as raw as emotions might be on the day, we ask that you don’t behave in any way that could possibly backfire on the defendants in this case. please refrain from bringing any banners or placards, any that can be used will be provided. if you want to sit in on the actual hearing, it’s worth noting that your bags will be searched and any face coverings will (most likely) have to be removed. you won’t be alone if you choose to stay outside!
please have a read of this court support guide from Bristol Anti-Repression Campaign (@bristolantirepression), if you haven’t attended before. hope to see some of you there!”
Ladislav Kuc is a Slovakian animal liberation activist who has served a 12 year sentence after an explosive action in front of a McDonalds that resulted in no injuries or harm to anyone.
He was imprisoned on the 1st January 2012 and over the years his sentence was appealed over and over, at some point facing 25 years with the terrorism enhancements. He has served 12 years and is now out of prison.
His time in prison has been difficult and he has been denied basic medical care so he has spent the past few weeks sorting out doctors appointments.
On communications with him, he sounds incredibly grateful for all the support he has received, from donations to letters and has sent love to all who have reached out over the years.
Life back from prison is not easy transition. Lado has been in prison for over a decade, so a lot of things have changed, but also he still owes a big fine and money to his lawyer. We haven’t worked out how much is owed yet, so for now we are just re-sharing PhillyABC’s fundraiser for him, until we work out better options to get money to him and how much is actually needed.
Please join us in wishing Ladislav a huge welcome back to the outside and please, please donate a few coins to the fundraiser. He owes 1000s and needs all the support he can get. Even 5 USD is a massive help.
