Solidarity with our colleague, anarchist prisoner Fernando Barcenas Castillo
Fernando Bárcenas has spent more than two years in detention in a prison in Mexico City, and is now awaiting a final appeal against his 6 year sentence for allegedly burning Coca Cola’s Christmas tree at an anti Fare rise demonstration.
Fernando was a high school student and worket at the College of Sciences and Humanities Vallejo campus; He was arrested on 13 December 2013 in the context of the first mobilization against rising fares on the Metro.. System of Collective Transport, accused of burning, at the intersection of Insurgentes and Reforma Streets, the Christmas tree of Coca-Cola.
He was prosecuted for ‘attacks on public peace in gang and criminal association’ andremains since his arrest in Northern Male Preventive Prison after being sentenced to six years in prison. The legal process is currently in the last possible Appeal: the direct confirmation of his sentence.
From the prison,
Fernando has done several projects critical of prison, such as study circles and the publication of a newspaper (“The Canero”) written by prisoners in the Mexico City system; He has also participated in several initiatives of organization among prisoners, for example, some collective hunger strikes. Throughout his two years of imprisonment Fernando has strengthened its anti-prison position and his willingness to continue the struggle inside prison.
To accompany Fernando on this way for freedom and spread their situation, we called on Friday January 29, 2016, an information day where the situation of Fernando Barcenas explained, as well as the other comrades incarcerated in Mexico.
We also calleed for making Saturday 23 to Saturday January 30,2016 a solidarity week, with actions you consider appropriate and possible to express solidarity with Fernando and generally towards all our (female and male) comrades who are locked up.
