ABC | 21.09.2005 11:42 | Repression | Social Struggles | South Coast

Recently released long term Spanish anarchist prisoner comes to the UK to discuss state repression and prisoner resistance to it.

Laudelino Iglesias Martinez left prison on the 9th of August 2004 after spending more than 23 years in Spanish prisons. He is one of the well-known social rebels and anarchists imprisoned in Spain, co-founder of the APRE (r), de Asociacion de Presos en Regimen Especial (reconstituida), an organisation of prisoners who in the beginning of the nineties struggled against the isolation and for their rights as human beings and was brutally repressed. Laudelino spent years in the infamous FIES-units but never stopped struggling.

On Tuesday 4th October he will be coming to Brighton to talk about his experiences of the Spanish prison system, in particular the FIES regime, and share news of solidarity actions and prisoners' resistance.

The talk is at The Cowley Club, 12 London Road, Brighton, starting at 6.30 pm.

The event is free, but any donations towards Laudelino's travel expenses are much appreciated!
