Uruguay: Solidarity with Jose and Gabriel
(Translated from uruguay.indymedia.org, October 2, 2007)
On the night of Friday, September 28, the locks of the Goethe institute and Iberia were sealed in Montevideo.
On the side was written "solidarity with Jose and Gabriel" and a circle A.
A little gesture to greet the companions who made the call for solidarity with our imprisoned companions.
("Iberia" is the name of a Spanish airline that operates in Montevideo and a hotel in the same city. The Goethe institute is an official German cultural institution in Montevideo.)
