Last Saturday, March 18, marked the International Day of Political Prisoners. Around the world hundreds of thousands are imprisoned for supporting political movements, taking part in protests or not complying with their governments' will. As IRTF we stand with all jailed activists and especially the thousands unrightfully imprisoned in Central America and the US. By the day, more and more critical voices are being silenced and peoples' rights are taken away. As a tool for intimidation, political imprisonment has been used excessively by oppressive regimes around the world.
But regardless of the fear this repression may cause in us, we have to remember: They can't arrest us all!
Our strength lies in solidarity!
In light of this event, we will post an article about the crackdown on the Atlantan anti Cop City protests and a report on the ongoing mass arrests in El Salvador.
