Support anti-cuts prisoners – appeal from Notts SOS

It is now a year since the inspiring action of a number of students at Millbank during last year’s student fees protest in London. As a result of that and other anti-austerity protests a number of people have been sent to prison. It is important that we as a movement support our imprisoned comrades. Remember: they are inside for us and we should be outside for them.

We list details of some of those imprisoned below. Please consider writing to some or all of them.

Information and advice on writing to prisoners can be found here:
