Below is a letter of thanks which arrived after our last issue had gone to print. Since it was written all the prisoners have been released but 19 still face charges. See http://prague.indymedia.org for up to date details
Revolutionary Anarchist greetings from the Czech Republic! ORA-SOLIDARITA would like to express our deepest gratitude for money contributions of Irish anarchists and other concerned Irish people aimed at raising legal defence funds for tortured S26 prisoners in Prague. Thanks to your contributions we are now able to provide many of the charged anarchists and other activists with good lawyers.
But perhaps even more important were solidarity actions (embassy pickets, protest letters, e-mails and phone calls) you have undertaken to free those prisoners. Thanks to you and other comrades all around the world an international campaign came into existence, which forced the Czech authorities to free by this time all but two prisoners of a total number of some almost 900 people - among them all seven Hungarian anarchist-communists. Thank you very much once more for your solidarity!!! Some 25 people are still charged by the police and one of the Polish comrades has already been sentenced under very strange conditions to one year of imprisonment. That is why solidarity is still needed! Let´s continue to support our comrades, who face severe repressions because of fighting for a better world!
