Solidarity with Harold H. Thompson

by Lunasfingo Monday, May. 19, 2003 at 9:40 PM

The Anarchist prisoner Harold H. Thompson has been struck a very serious blow on his fight for prisoners rights and can't go on with it. Here's the whole info:


The Anarchist comrade Harold H. Thompson, who's been suffering in his own
flesh the jails horror since 1979, has been devoting all his forces to
help other prisoners with theit trials and to lodge appeals on his own as
well to get so basic rights such as receiving political literature (banned in prisons since the mid 80's) recognized for prisoners. His
commitment has brought him the hatred and harassment from warders, prison
officers and extreme right organizations as the Aryan Brotherhood, but nothing
of this has succeeded in making him give up his solidarian labour up to now.

However, the last blow the Tennessee Department of Corrections has struck
him with has stopped totally his legal work. The Department has removed
typewriters and word processors from the authorized prisoners property list,
which means they won't be able to have them repaired or substituted if they
break down. Since no court circuit accepts handwritten documents,
it's obvious this measure is intended just to prevent inmates from going on
enjoying the autonomy they used to have to manage their trials- in another
words, to make prisoners still more imprisoned, as if it wasn't enough
with all the things they must bear every day.

Harold's word processor got broken down a short time ago, and due to this
repressive measure, he can't go on with the trials, both his and of other
inmates', he was taking, some of which could suppose the recovering of
elementary rights for prisoners. Being things as they are, he and
we his comrades have decided to raise a solidarity campaign to get this ban
retired and thus help Harold to get another processor.

One of the ideas we've had is sending protest letters as the one appearing
below to the Tennessee Department of Corrections Commissioner. You can write
another one if you want to, but if you decide this, please avoid any expression
that may seem threatening to them
or that may point a finger directly on Harold. Here you have the letter model
we've written for this campaign:

(Write here your address)

Quinton I. White, Commissioner

Tennessee Department of Correction

4th Floor, Rachel Jackson Building

320 Sixth Avenue North


Tennessee 37243-0465.


(Day) (Month)

Appreciate Mr. White:

I, ........................................................., from ...........
..................., have been informed about the removal of typewriters and word
processors from the approved prisoners property list. This supposes their incapability
to write legal texts for their court causes properly and to have them repaired or
substituted when they break down, being this a handicap for the normal development
of their court processes.

Therefore, I kindly request you to carry out all the necessary measures to put
typewriters, word processors and typing supplies back on the approved prisoners
property list.



If you want to write to Harold, do it to this address: Harold H. Thompson
#93992, Northwest Correctional Complex, Route 1 Box 660, Tiptonville,
Tennessee 38079.

To get in touch with his support group, the address is: FOHHT, 59 Alderson
Crescent, Formby, Merseyside, L37 3LY, England.

Give this message the biggest diffusion possible. UPWARDS AND ONWARDS!
