Rob los Ricos Sent to Hole

Our friend and ally Rob los Ricos (Robert Thaxton) has been sent to the hole
at Oregon State Penitentiary. At the time of writing, we do not know why this
has happened - prison officials are not being forthcoming with information.
We have been told that Rob can still receive mail, but have not received
anything from him for over two weeks. Rob has been in the hole since November
15th, and could remain there for up to six months. We desperately need to
know more about this, and will disseminate whatever information we discover,
as a first step towards an appropriate response.

In the meantime, calls inquiring about Rob's situation may be directed to the
OSP authorities at (503) 378 2453. Please forward any available documentation
or data to APLAN (please email to dnegation@aol.com as well). Also, you may
write to Rob:

Robert Thaxton #12112716 / OSP / 2605 State St. / Salem, OR / 97310

Please be conscious of what you write to Rob at this delicate time and its=20

About Rob los Ricos:

Rob los Ricos (AKA Robert Thaxton) is an anarchist with a long history of
agitation. His writing have appeared in publications such as Anarchy - a
Journal of Desire Armed and Fifth Estate.

On June 18th, 1999 protests against the global economy and corporate ecocide
erupted throughout the world. In London, a mess was made of the financial
district. In Eugene, Oregon, a Reclaim the Streets party turned to a riot
with the help of the police, who fired tear gas at dispersing protesters.

Rob is currently serving a 88 month sentence for defending himself during the
Eugene m=C3=AAl=C3=A9e - as a cop charged towards him, Rob threw a rock at 
him in an
effort to escape. Rob's two day trial was characterized by police lies and a
heavy anti-anarchist bias. Rob was finally declared guilty of Assault II and
Riot. His sentencing was equally dire, as Judge Bearden demanded that Rob=20
serve the 70-month mandatory minimum sentence for Assault II before starting
on the 18 months he received for Riot.
