This is a great initiative by the James Connolly Society Scotland. December will again be designated Prisoners Month here at 107 Cowgate this year and we will be covering the plight of political prisoners throughout the world.
The James Connolly Society Welfare Department will again be sending solidarity cards to political prisoners throughout the world this Christmas. In 2012 we sent out over 1000 cards to political prisoners in many countries including Ireland, the United States, the Basque Country, Palestine. Each A5 card is inscribed with the message: Revolutionary Greetings from the James Connolly Society.
For Irish republicans the focus is naturally on political prisoners in Ireland particularly those held in the occupied Six Counties. The JCS supports those political prisoners and many more including Basque, Palestinian and anti fascist. In the republican spirit of inclusivity the JCS look to include as many political prisoners as possible on our list rather than excluding people.
You can help by clicking the Paypal button below and securely donating £5. For every £5 donation the JCS Welfare Department will be able to send a specially printed greeting card to another political prisoner. Cards can also be purchased from 107 Cowgate’s online store.
All monies raised through the JCS Welfare Department Christmas Appeal is used to support this project and not for any other JCS activities.
The JCS do not raise funds for one group of prisoners or for support groups for specific groups of prisoners. If you would like to assist specific prisoners you should contact the relevant support group directly.
