In jail (awaiting charges or shorter sentence)

Margaret Channon

Margaret Channon is being held in custody facing federal charges connected to her alleged participation in the George Floyd uprising of 2020.

If you are writing to someone who is pre-trial, don’t ask questions about their case. Discussing what a prisoner is alleged to have done can easily come back to haunt them during their trial or negotiations leading up to it… do not write anything you wouldn’t want Fox News, a cop, or a judge to see.

Song Kang-Ho, Dr.

Song is awaiting trial for praying for peace at the remaining part of Gureombi Rock, after cutting the fence and entering the Jeju Navy Base on March 7, 2020. This date marked the 8th anniversary since the blasting of Gureombi Rock in 2012. On March 30, 4,700 people signed the petition calling for the two to not be imprisoned during their trial. Ryu Bok Hee was briefly detained and released on the 30th. Once again on April 3, when the court reviewed the legality of Dr. Song’s arrest warrant, 2,448 people signed the petition calling for his release.

Juan Antonio Sorroche Fernandez

On May 22, 2019, anarchist comrade Juan was arrested, a fugitive and wanted for about two years. Two houses were searched in the province of Brescia, as well as two homes of parents of a comrade, and a comrade in the Brescia hinterland. Another comrade was also arrested and detained in the Brescia prison, accused of “personal aiding” (article 378 of the Criminal Code), with the aggravating circumstance of ”aiding the subtraction of the execution of the sentence“ (in reference to Juan).

Andreas Krebs

Our friend and companion Andreas is currently imprisoned in Naples (Italy). Since his imprisonment in Germany Andreas has been known as a rebellious prisoner. In April 2019 he was sentenced in Italy to 24 years in jail. In addition, Andreas has recently been diagnosed with kidney cancer. His health is deteriorating and we fear for his life. Actually, he should undergo surgery months ago, but the Italian authorities refuse to transfer him to a hospital.
