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

Rob Thaxton and his cellmate Brian McCarvill have
written to us explaining that they are trying to
challenge the prison system in America. The
prisoncrats there view anarchists as a streetgang and
under their ?security threat group? rules, they
routinely reject mail,?zines and other publications
that exhibit circled As (anarchy signs). Rob and Brian
are asking people to send in postcards that display a
large anarchy symbol on the front with the words ?this
is not a gang symbol?.Please include a return address
and a full name so that the prison officers have no
excuse to turn the mail away. 
In Rob?s words:

?we want to make the prison censors hate their job,
since they lack the cognitive skills to think about
what they are doing.?

Any help would be appreciated. Stamps to America are
not expensive but are avaliable from Anarchist Support
if anyone has problems.

Rob Thaxton#12112716 and Brian McCarvill#11037967 are
both held at: 
OSP, 2605 State Street, Salem, OR 97310. USA

Turkish Anarchist?s Jail Defiance Mehmet Bal is a
conscientious objector who is being kept in Adana
Military Prison. He has faced torture since 25 of
October-starting from the first moment that he was put
in jail. Despite the repression, Mehmet is clear in
this reason for resistance;

?Exactly at this point, I as an individual wish to
make clear that, under no conditions will I ever
submit to rules or values put forth by any system,
ideology or religion, and shall live in accordance
with my own conscience and will. I refuse to take
place in any kind of system. that bears inhuman
tendencies, whatever the consequences may be.? 

For now, it is very important to write to the prison
authorities in Adana, to prevent further torture. You
can write protest letters demanding an end of the
practice of chaining Mehmet Bal?s arms and legs; to
protest the arrest of Mehmet Bal: Adana 6. Kolordu
Askeri  Cezaevi, Adana, Turkey or fax: +90-322-322
