Amadeu Casella's case in english: More than 50 days on hungerstrike
16 ago 2008
Anarchist on hungerstrike in Spain
category international | miscellaneous | news report author Monday August 11, 2008 13:15author by Anarchist Prisoner Support Report this post to the editors

Amadeu Casellas is a well known anarchist prisoner. Amadeu spent already 25 years in jail, in fact he's the most veteran prisoner in Catalonia. He joined many collective protests, hunger strikes, rebellions, etc and suffered many tortures and reprisals as a direct consequence of his permanent confrontational attitude towards the system. Now Amadeu thinks that it's time to be released, but the prison authorities don't want to release him, so he decided to take a step forward again and started an indefinite hunger strike. Amadeu said that the only options are freedom or death. He's already at the sickbay of Quatre Camins prison and his health is going worse everyday.

AMADEU CASELLAS CONTINUES IN HUNGERSTRIKE

-On 3rd of August 2008 Amadeu Casellas was in his 43rd day of a hungerstrike to demand an end to his critical situation of inprisonment which has lasted more than 22 years along. 22 years paid for the struggle against the state and the expropiation of banks in the 70' s and 80' s to support workers struggles of the times. Because of the continued denials of the authorities to release him, Amadeu decided to stop eating; hunger strike being the only way for him to make his voice heard amongst those which want to see him imprsioned.

After the deceit which he suffered in his last hungerstrike in April - in which the prison director made false promises to him if he gives up his strike - this time Amadeu decided to go until his ulitmate demand is met: they give him the 3rd grade deduction of his sentence or he won' t stop!

On Friday, 1st of August there was a demonstration in front of the General Direction of
Penitenciary Services (DGSP), who are responsible for the administration of the 3rd grade deduction of sentence, to demonstrate that Amadeu gets more and more support from the street and that the mobilisations won' t stop. There was the intention to speak face to face with the bastards, but they impeeded our entering and closed the door when the compañerxs tried to present a denunciation. Some hours later 2 compañerxs entered together with the lawyer to speak with Sr. Paco de Vicente, responsible for the classifications. In the same morning this scumbag went to visit Amadeu who was in the penitenciary hospital of Terrassa still (from Thursday on).

In the conversation he explained the "agreements" that he offered to Amadeu in the morning:
Transfer to a different prison (Brians II, Lleida) and revision of his case, if he stops the
hungerstrike, of course... According to his words, in Brians II he could start again, with a different regime of treatment and with better posibilities to get the 3rd grade.

The meaning of this game of the DGSP is obvious for us: This bastards want to leave on holidays quietly, and because of this they tried to convice Amadeu with this false promises to stop the hungerstrike. But today like yesterday we don' t trust in these words and because of that Amadeu wants to continue with the strike until they satisfy some of his claims. And we' re with him all the way !!!

Today Amadeu has lost more than 23 kg, surviving basicly just with water and disolved glucose, he has a sugar niveau about 50 mg/l and they give him Valium.

Today we can cooborate the infamous conditions of the penitenciary hospital of Terrassa.
Firstly they didn' t allow to the compañerxs to visit him although they got an authorization of the "Cuatre Camins" prison (where Amadeu was imprisoned). Just his mother and lawyer could visit him for 30 minutes. To make a phone call after he can only use phone cards of Telefonica (spanish "Telecom") which you can' t find in Terrassa on Saturday afternoon, because these ones are only sold in tobacco-shops, closed at this time. Telefonica has the monopoly of phone-calls of the prisoners in the spanish state and you can' t find these cards near the prisons. Moreover, only persons who are authorized to comunicate can give the cards to the prisoners.

In reference to the medics, they deserve an open grave. This fuckers didn' t measure Amadeu's weight before he arrived 3 days ago, and if this would be a few, in each visit they bring food and they leave it beside him (to provoke his temptation). The food is that of a person in normal conditions which means it is imposible to digest for a person who has not eaten for weeks. It' s inconceivable how they can call themselves "medics"! It isn' t necesary to speak about the prison guards, they are the same bastards as everywhere.

Amadeu said that in the past days they have admitted 4 people from Quatre Camins who were poisoned by the prison-food; to one of them they had to extirpate the vesicle. There are more prisoners in the infirmary of the prison; they treat them like shit and they give them shit to eat! And still there are people who say what a nice life they have inside the prisons with 3 times food a day, yeah!

Finally tp say that altough his health worsens steadily, Amadeu doesn' t lose his humor and his morale to continue his struggle is very high . He demands to us to be calmed and to do everything to pressure the DGSP and to the court of justice nº 2 in Manressa.

We make a call of solidarity with Amadeu, pressuring both centers of power, through faxes, phone-calls, visits, concentrations, actions... whatever you want. And generally we also call to press all representations of the spanish torture-state around the world!

LOUDER THAN THEIR SILENCE - CRIES IN THE STREETS !

LOUDER THAN THEIR DIRTY GAME - DIRECT ACTIONS!
