(en) Czech, AFED: Hole in the wall #1 - Review of a magazine intended for people in prison [machine translation]

Date Mon, 9 Sep 2019 11:14:05 +0300

Experience with detention in the police efforts to criminalize the anarchist movement did not wait long and one of the outcomes is a new magazine looking for its target group among people behind bars. The state of most of them is determined by socio-economic relationships within the capitalist machinery that pushes them and places them in prison where they are. The poorer you are and protect yourself from having a different skin color than white, the more likely you are to be here. ---- But it is not just a magazine for prisoners, Hole in the Wall has the ambition to be a space for the texts of prisoners themselves and released. However, it is somewhat naïve to say that "those who are already in that situation know that the walls that surround them need to be demolished." Such a level of awareness would be fine, but not yet from this world.

Inside the issue you will find, besides "prison poetry", a critique of the labor exploitation of prisoners at Všehrdy prison; a readable narrative of the experience of commencing punishment; an interesting interview with a prisoner about the conditions and practice of prison employment and his very ridiculous remuneration; a theoretical reflection by Susan L. Brown on the meaning of wage labor (in fact slavery) and how the job would look free; interview with the Berlin Solidarity Group of the Unions Prisoners on employment practices in German prisons and on possibilities for external support; a description of the three-week strike of prisoners in the US in 2018; in a jail written review of London's Waylander after the Stars, and finally an article taken from the a2larm about the solitary torture of prisoners in the United States and protests against him.

The hole in the wall is definitely a unique achievement and I hope to be able to write a review for the next issue soon, although it is known that many of the zines and magazines produced from the bottom will often not reach the second issue. But the support of this project and the effort of a wider circle of readers "from outside" to get it "in" to fulfill its purpose will be crucial. If you know someone who is rotting in a hole, send them at least one copy, which will undoubtedly find their way to others.
