About the list...

The list of prisoners has been compiled by the people at the US-based 'Nuclear Resister' magazine, an excellent prisoner solidarity tool which has existed since 1980, providing information on and jail support info. for people imprisoned, updates on ongoing campaigns, and reflections on life behind bars.

The Resister is an ongoing chronicle of hope, and its recent issue documents over 7,500 arrests which have occurred since last fall in relation to the ongoing war against the people of Iraq, the details of people who continue to go to jail resisting the U.S. terrorist training School in Georgia, the story of three nuns facing five to eight years behind bars for an act of disarmament, and more.

More than 7,500 arrests were reported in the U.S. alone during anti-war protests between November, 2002 and mid-April, 2003. The latest edition of the Nuclear Resister newsletter chronicles this slice of recent anti-war activism that included more than 300 actions in at least 115 cities and towns in 35 states. Hundreds of people were jailed from overnight to six months, and updated names and addresses of current prisoners for peace are available from and soon at:
