Former Political Prisoner Matt Lamont Arrested

by imc reposter Monday, Feb. 27, 2006 at 11:11 AM

Former Anarchist political prisoner, Matt Lamont, was arrested yesterday after detectives escorted him out of his workplace. Only after repeated demands that he be told why he was being held, one of the detectives stated it was for a parole violation. Plain-clothes police then searched Lamont's car and apartment, where they seized political documents, letters from prisoners, as well as, the hard drive to his computer.

During his interrogation, detectives alluded to Lamont plotting to target the Big Bear Damn- an allegation that is simply not true. Detectives also inquired about the Southern California Anarchist Federation (SCAF), a group Lamont has had some association with since his release.

Matt’s wife, Jenny, has not been able to get any information about the charges or where Matt is currently being held. The last she has heard, Matt may have been taken to Chino State Prison. Matt and Jenny Lamont are in serious need of support, legal and financial. Though the facts of the case have yet to surface, we can assume Matt will need legal aid. Since Matt is being detained, serious economic strain is being placed on his wife. Matt’s arrest and detainment will make it difficult for Jenny to pay their bills.

Information is still limited and we will keep folks updated. Until I get permission to release Jenny's phone number and address, people can contact LA-ABCF regarding Matt's case and donations. We ask that people prepare to assist them with financial contributions and moral support.

Matt Hart

Donations for the Lamonts can currently be sent to LA-ABCF:
PO Box 11223
Whittier Ca 90603
