Free polish anarchist Adam Pazuryna!

30-01-2008 18:43

We demand the immediate release of our comrade, Adam Pazuryna, from arrest. Adam has been held in Bialoleka jail in Warsaw since late December. He was arrested on bogus charges during a useless and unprovoked police action on May 16, 2005. Protestors had just finished a demonstration during the Council of Europe Summit in Warsaw and were about to just go home when the clowns in badges decided to arrest people. As usual, nothing at all was going on at the moment of arrest, so cops were just harrassing people at the end of the protest and looking to pick up some random people just to score some arrests and to show that protesting is not to be tolerated.
