The struggle against fascism is a world-wide struggle. It might take on different characteristics in different locations, but one constant nearly everywhere is the State’s cozy relationship with fascism and its disdain for those who struggle against it. While on a European vacation, Australian citizen Jock Palfreeman was arrested in Bulgaria when he came to the aid of a young Roma man being attacked by a group of neo-nazis. Jock defended the young man and himself ably, leaving one fascist scumfuck dead and another wounded. A bullshit trial ensued in which the fascists were allowed to perjure themselves repeatedly and Jock’s ability to prove his innocence was severely hindered by the corrupt Bulgarian judicial system.
Jock’s supporters have put together an excellent website which shows the details of his trumped-up charges and bullshit trial. Visit http://www.freejock.com/index.html for more information about how you can help by doing things like contacting the Bulgarian embassy, writing him letters, or contributing to his defense fund. You can also visit http://anarchistsolidarity.wordpress.com/category/jock-palfreeman/ for more up-to-date information about the continuing struggle to free Jock.
Freedom for Jock Palfreeman! Solidarity with all who struggle!
