The Anarchist Prisoners’ Legal Aid Network

The Anarchist Prisoners’ Legal Aid Network (APLAN) is a prisoner ­guided initiative, formed to provide legal aid and outside support for impris­oned anarchists. We believe that anarchists need to support those who are ar­rested and already in jail. This isn’t always easy, yet is a challenge our move­ment needs to take on.

There are dozens of anarchists in prison, many of whom face abuses by the prison authorities. Some are even held in segregation units with violent white racists. We can fight repressive action taken against anarchist prisoners, but it will take effort from inside and outside the prisons to do this.

Anarchist prisoners can contribute to struggles on the outside, but need outside contact to do this. APLAN aims to facilitate these efforts and thus strengthen anarchist practice as a whole.

We hope to provide sound legal advice and aid for anarchist prisoners. This support for imprisoned comrades is not based upon respect for the judicial apparatus, but is provided in the spirit of mutual aid and solidarity in struggle. The sharing of research material and resources will be an immediate goal. We welcome contact with those who have specific knowledge of legal matters.

We hope for broad involvement, in multiform ways, from throughout the anarchist movement. Write for information about current activities and how to get involved.
