Czech Abuses in Jails: PROTEST!

by Lisa And MaryAnne Saturday, Sep. 30, 2000 at 4:14 PM

The main reason for this message is that people who have been arrested are having an extremely hard time in jail. Many people of all nationalities are being beaten. Over 900 have been arrested. About 2/3 are Czech. There are reports of broken arms, teeth knocked out, black eyes, and sexual abuse.

>> Hello friends,

>>

>> We are well and so far, not in jail. The main reason for this message is

>> that people who have been arrested are having an extremely hard time in

>> jail. Many people of all nationalities are being beaten. Over 900 have

>> been arrested. About 2/3 are Czech.

>>

>> There are reports of broken arms, teeth knocked out, black eyes, and sexual

>>

>> abuse. People have been denied food and access to lawyers. Some have been

>>

>> kept up all night in small cells with not enough room to lie or sit down.

>> They have been kicked to prevent them from sleeping. Some people have been

>>

>> released and the internationals are being deported.

>>

>> It seems that the police are showing both a light and dark side. They have

>>

>> not overreacted on the street unless provoked, but the jails are a

>> different

>> story.

>>

>> We would like everyone to send a fax to the President of the Czech

>> Republic,

>> Vaclav Havel, demanding that people be released immediately and that the

>> brutal treatment of prisoners cease. The more people that are aware of

>> this

>> brutality, the harder it will be for the Czech government to continue these

>>

>> acts.

>>

>> His fax number is 0042-02-24310851. Check the IMC web pages or the INPEG

>> web page for more information.

>>

>> ***************************************************************

>> Since we have arrived we have been very involved in doing non-violence

>> training, which people have been hungry for. Both yesterday and today the

>> protests were completely non-violent. 'We'll do a longer report soon.
