We are raising funds to provide ongoing support to antifascist prisoners. We intend to use the monies raised to fund antifascist prisoners' commissaries; take care of legal fines; ensure their dependents and families are looked after; help antifascist prisoners returning to their communities get themselves re-established; and and provide emergency support in urgent situations.
We define "antifascist prisoner" as someone who has been incarcerated as a result of their actions opposing bigotry, fascism, and far-right extremism.
Funds will be disbursed in two ways:
1) In conjunction with July 25 - The International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners, we will distribute funds evenly between all antifascist prisoners we have information for - either directly to them or via their support groups (depending on each prisoner's individual circumstances).
2) On an ongoing basis, we will accept and consider requests for support of specific antifascist prisoners when there is an urgent need for such support.
The fund will be administered by Antifa International- an international anti-fascist collective with years of experience managing The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fundand other anti-fascist projects.
Contributing to our fundraiser is an excellent way to show real solidarity with antifascists who have made extreme sacrifices in their efforts to counter bigotry, hatred, and fascism!
