Anarchist prisoner in Spain looking for international contacts/pen
pals

For some time, in the new maxi-prison of Puerto III, Cadiz, several
prisoners are struggling to expose the brutal conditions in the
FIES units - which are isolation wings in Puerto III. Rafa "Jon-
Bala" Martinez Zea is one of these long term prisoners in Cadiz. He
has participated in hunger strikes with other prisoners in Spain,
Italy, Germany and Turkey for the end of the isolation units, the
"prison within the prison", agitating not only for better
conditions for all prisoners and the abolition of the life
sentence, but for the end of the prison system and the society
which needs it.

In January and April of this year he was on hungerstrike; the first
one in solidarity with prisoners in Spain and Turkey who struggle
against the isolation units, the second one - which he won - for
some specific demands about his prison conditions (return of all
his materials which enable him to continue his studies).

So Rafa is looking for more international contacts to write to and
exchange ideas and experiences. He has a great sense of humour and
is happy to receive news and hear from you. He grew up in Australia
and then moved back to Spain, he is serving a 10 and a half year
sentence and is due for release in 2 years. He understands English
and Spanish and is really hoping for some letters and/or photos
about what is happening in your area! After contact with some
anarchist comrades in Japan who told him about the G8 happening in
Hokkaido, Rafa wanted to make some contact with Anarchists not only
in Japan but also across Asia, because he admits that he knows very
little about the movement there.

Rafa has been under repression within the jail by the authorities
for defending the dignity of himself and other prisoners, and for
the hunger strikes and making his anarchist ideas known. It should
be remembered that anything you write to Rafa might be read by the
prison authorities so don't write anything that could get him or
you into trouble, but don't let that hold you back from writing him
a great letter or even just dropping him a postcard with a few
words of solidarity and rebellion!

You should also write a return address or the prison might not let
Rafa have your mail. If you don't get a reply it could be because
the prison has not let Rafa have your mail, or Rafa might not be
able to afford to write back just yet, but don't worry, these
letters make a big difference to Rafa and also the prison
authorities, because they know there is international attention on
his condition. They know they won't be able to harrass him without
people knowing about it!
