Latest news on Tamara’s situation
April 8, 2010
Four months have passed since December 15, when they abducted our friend and comrade Tamara. Even today, her mail is still being confiscated, and it is impossible for her to communicate with people outside her family.
On the legal end, an appeal was filed in which the letter-bomb’s contents were analyzed and its possible effects assessed. This assessment was positive for our comrade, since it confirmed that the letter-bomb she is charged with sending could not possibly have caused serious harm. Let’s remember that the reasons why our comrade currently finds herself in preventive detention are the severe charges she is facing, which would be refuted with this new information.
The appeal was denied in principle by the judge, so the same appeal was filed today in provincial court with the aim of securing our comrade’s conditional liberty pending trial, since the arguments for continuing her preventive detention are based solely on her abductors’ opinions and their desire to keep her locked up.
Whether or not she is responsible for sending the letter-bomb, we believe that this series of “coincidences” is a result of the anti-prison struggle and the constant solidarity shown by our comrade with all those who, in one way or another, are suffering the abuses of power. It’s an inconvenience to the state that there are people like Tamara who struggle every day to expose all the shit hidden and suppressed behind the prison walls. These are the consequences.
Therefore, we demand that our comrade be set free. And we encourage everyone to go out and show solidarity with her and all those who, at this very moment, are suffering the abuses of this rotten system.
FOR AN END TO PRISONS!!!!
