About the ABC

The Anarchist Black Cross was originated in Tsarist Russia to organise aid for political prisoners. In the late 1960s the organisation resurfaced in Britain, where it first worked to aid prisoners of the Spanish resistance fighting the dictator Franco's police. Now it has expanded and groups are found in many countries around the world. We support anarchist and other class struggle prisoners, fund-raise on behalf of prisoners in need of funds for legal cases or otherwise, and organise demonstrations of solidarity with imprisoned anarchists and other prisoners.

On The HMP Wakefield ERU Fascist Regime

Within the high security estate are hidden small torture units known as the Close Supervision Centre (CSC) system. The CSC has been notorious for its brutality since it began back in 1998 yet has been allowed to expand at massive cost to the prisons budget. In 2001 another more oppressive level to the CSC was created labeled the Exceptional Risk Unit based at HMP Wakefield, able to hold a maximum of 8 prisoners. 4 more spaces were added for CSC prisoners in the cells above those labeled Exceptional Risk in 2012, making a total of 12 possible victims held under the most oppressive conditions in the country.

Unable to cope with the environmental stress, several of these victims have become willing to do anything to please their captors. These broken men turned into the most racist extremists, hating all who are not White English Christians including themselves. Effectively brainwashed and desperate to progress out of both of the Exceptional Risk Unit and the CSC, these broken men provide entertainment to the laughing screws by subjecting all on the unit outside their newly learned definition of acceptable human beings to a continuous onslaught of discriminative abuse. In order to boost the numbers of those engaging in this behaviour known racists are deliberately transferred into the unit, whilst minorities are kept to a minimum and isolated as far as possible from being able to access any meaningful or sensible interaction with others.

Over the past 18 months alone, at least 3 of the prisoners detained at HMP Wakefield's CSC have felt that they have been bullied and oppressed so much so by both fellow prisoners and staff, that they have been left with no other option but to change their religion from Muslim to Christian. One at a time until they felt forced to abandon their beliefs, Jason Jay, Dano Sonnex and Douglas Gary Vinter were subjected to the most vile Islamaphobic abuse without any support from the prisons so called Imam. Following each capitulation were celebrations and congratulations for another job well done by those running the unit and their puppets, then the transfer in of the next target in what is a systematic attack on Islamic prisoners.

None of this is new, HMP Wakefield has always been known to operate a racist regime enforced by an all white workforce, and the CSC has been open since 2001 here. Over time and with the techniques learned through Psychological training which is mandatory for all CSC officers, an efficient system has been developed which the CSC management committee now utilize to its maximum resulting in prisoner after prisoner abandoning their beliefs. This serves several purposes such as reducing the excessively high statistics showing Muslims are disproportionately subjected to detention within the CSC system, creating an army of racist extremists and satisfying the lust to see minorities tortured and broken by the sadistic scum who designed and implement this outrageous scheme.

One by one the racist prisoners who are deemed to have been indoctrinated into the belief system commonly propagated by the Prison Officers Association (POA) are provided with progressive transfers to other prisons, only to be replaced by another weak mind ripe for indoctrination, but only after assurances have been given that these brainwashed fools will spread their hate and harm any prisoner they meet who falls outside their acceptable characteristics. Recent graduates from this evil plot include Simon Meyer from Manchester who received a progressive move to HMP Full Sutton for his work, and Nathan Mann from Leicester who got his much wanted transfer to HMP Woodhill, both leaving others hungry to achieve the success they have,

Right now, I remain the sole prisoner at HMP Wakefield's CSC of the Islamic faith, and am suffering constant racial and Islamaphobic attacks which have been taking place for months. Before anyone else is put through this torture, action must be taken to ban any minorities or Muslims from being located here. Being picked off one at a time leaves us needing the support of the community outside more than ever, one man can not be expected to bring down the whole fascist regime.

A protest demonstration has been organised outside NOMS HQ (this will take place on the 18th February from 12.30pm – 2.30pm) against the fascist regime, the CSC and my ongoing politically motivated detention within both the Exceptional Risk Unit and the CSC in general. In order to achieve real change I ask that everyone who can please make the time to attend this event, and all those who are unable to please write to your MP demanding change as well as signing my online petition (www.change.org/p/justice-for-kevan) and visiting my website www.justiceforkevan.com I thank you all in advance for your much needed support and look forward to hearing how successful you all are.
