The focus of Earth First! prisoner support is on eco-prisoners, caged animal liberationists and prisoners of indigenous land struggles, who show a bio-centric viewpoint, either in the actions that led to their arrest or in their general activism. Strike up correspondence to lend support to them, or check out this support guide for suggestions.
Prisoners of Allied Struggles
We also stand in solidarity with people facing imprisonment for their beliefs and actions reflecting a broader vision towards liberation from the oppressive systems. There are over fifty political prisoners and prisoners of war held in the US, and many more politicized prisoners. The following are some of those prisoners from struggles that are allied with the Earth First! movement.
Indigenous Resistance Prisoners
The following are prisoners who Earth First! folks are in some form of contact with, but their cases do not fit in one of the above categories.
Fight Toxic Prisons Contacts
The following social prisoners are supporters of FTP campaign. While this is only a few individuals, we hope corresponding with them helps make an inroad to general prisoner solidarity within the EF! movement. Note: We are not taking any position on the criminal cases or political histories of these individuals.
EF! prisoner support is ONLY for those who refuse to cooperate with law enforcement. Cooperation entails the passing of any information to law enforcement which can be used to subpoena, arrest or prosecute another person. This includes (but is not limited to) giving agents the names, locations, activities or associations of other individuals, whether before, during or after trial. There is never an excuse to aid law enforcement. If an individual cooperates with the government, our support will end immediately. People that accept plea agreements but do not provide information or agree to provide information about other people still deserve and will receive support. Visit the Informants Page for details and updates about government informants, many of whom are cooperating co-defendants of former or current prisoners we support.
