Solidarity with Harold H. Thompson

by Lunasfingo Tuesday, May. 20, 2003 at 4:40 AM

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:

SOLIDARITY WITH HAROLD H. THOMPSON APPEAL

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


Nashville


Tennessee 37243-0465.

.......th......................2003


(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.

Sincerely,










(Signature)

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!
