Austria: Solidarity Action for Prisoners in Graz and Worldwide


The Karlau prison (the orange light in the right part of the second photo indicates one of the prison’s buildings) is one of the biggest prisons in Austria. On August 26 2017 some anarchists expressed their solidarity with the prisoners…

In a world that seems to consist only of isolation and fragmentation, prisons are the most obvious symbol of oppression. Our struggle against prisons is a struggle against the society that builds them and uses them to exclude those who chose not to live in conformity.

In solidarity with prisoners worldwide we dropped a banner close to the Karlau prison in Graz, Austria. A place of daily repression for hundreds of people that face more than three years of prison. And a place where prisoners with alleged “mental problems” are held for an indefinite period of time.

The banner reads: Freiheit für alle Gefangenen – Freedom for all Prisoners.

Down with prison walls and the world that needs them!

Solidarity to those who face repression. Solidarity to all who struggle.
