While the focus of the EF! Prisoner Support Project is on the U.S.-held, International and self-defense eco-prisoners listed below, we also stand in solidarity with other prisoners who are unjustly incarcerated (as well as arrestees and folks who have been released from prison) for their beliefs and actions that reflect a broader vision towards liberation from the oppressive systems. We feel that cross-movement solidarity is of particular importance in prison-related efforts, where isolation is our common enemy’s strategy. See a broader list of prisoners from allied struggles here.
