      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

After more than 8 years of imprisonment, Christopher Lee Plummer
will has been granted parole in Texas. Chris was placed in prison on
a 15 years sentence for an anti-fascist action in Houston, Texas.
While imprisoned he faced severe repression by both the state and
nazi gangs in the prisons. Several attempts on his life were made,
resulting in permanent injures that will effect him forever. Much of his
time in prison was spent in solitary confinement for his efforts to
organize prisoners and fellow anarchist. During his 4 years stay in
solitary the prisoncrats went so far as to accuse him of attempting to
smuggle a pistol into the prison. The state went all out to stop him.
After more than ten times of being turned down for parole he has
finally been apporved for release on 1 / 2002. Just a few months from
now. He will be staying in Texas and working with the Austin ABC
chapter. Chris has made firm commitments to his fellow anarchist
political and social prisoners stating that if he can’t get them the
support that they desperately need he wil return to prison for trying.
Chris will be facing huge difficulty when he is released, will need all
of our support and solidarity. While he has many friends and family it
will take large amounts of money to secure an attorney to represent
him while on parole. He feesl that if he does not have an attorne to
stand by him, he will certainly be sent back to prison for any minor
violation. One of the conditions that he has had to comply with for
release is ‘super intensive parole’ this means that he will be placed
on a monitor and aill have to report in person twice a week, this type
of parole is normally reserve
d for sex offenders and murderers. The fact that they are going to
this extreme type of supervision implies that they fear his ability to
continue solid anarchist agitation.
Chris asks that folks work to raise funds for his release over the next
few months. The movement nees to support this dedicated anarchist
political prisoner. This is the crucial time.
