Prison Was Created For The Poor - New Pamphlet From Leeds ABC

Leeds ABC | 10.09.2007 17:11 | Repression | World

A new 32 page pamphlet from Leeds Anarchist Black Cross

Mothers & Sons: From FIES to Aachen
Pastora & Xose Tarrio Gonzalez
Julia & Gabriel Pombo da Silva

Prison Was Created For The Poor focuses on two tireless militants of the Spanish prison struggle, Xose Tarrio Gonzalez and Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, who fought against the brutal F.I.E.S. isolation units. Xose was killed by a life behind bars, and Gabriel now rots in a German prison. The main part of this book though, is written by neither Xose nor Gabriel, instead it is the text of an interview with their mothers, Pastora and Julia. Through this medium, they tell a powerful and emotional story, which not only takes us inside the world of Spanish high security prisons, but reflects on jails throughout the world. Prison Was Created For The Poor is a compelling read.
