Irish Anarchist Prisoner Turns 30: Wrongfully Incarcerated

In May our comrade John Paul Wootton celebrated his 30th birthday wrongfully incarcerated in Maghaberry Gaol, North Ireland. At a time when he should have been celebrating such an occasion with his family, comrades and loved ones, John Paul instead marks yet another birthday, wrongfully imprisoned with Brendan McConville who form part of the Miscarriage of Justice case known the world over as the Craigavon Two. Detained and sentenced in a Diplock court (Non-jury Court) for a crime they did not commit.

John Paul is an anarchist who continues to be active whilst being held in the notorious Maghaberry Gaol in Ireland assisting many prisoners in knowing their rights whilst incarcerated and expressing solidarity with other prisoners throughout the world.

He is active writing and commenting on current situation in Ireland from an anarchist perspective as well as on other social justice cases which remain close to his heart. A talented musician and an excellent guitarist penning many songs, some of which have been aired during a number of Industrial Workers of the World online social events as an incarcerated worker. Songs written by himself on a number of social justice and class struggle issues.
