Derry Anarchist Black Cross was set up with the aim of supporting anarchist and class struggle prisoners. The Anarchist Black Cross was originated in Tsarist Russia to organise aid for political prisoners. In the late 1960s the organisation resurfaced in Britain, where it first worked to aid prisoners of the Spanish resistance fighting the dictator Franco’s police.
Now it has expanded and groups are found in many countries around the world including here in Ireland. We support anarchist and other class struggle prisoners, fund-raise on behalf of prisoners in need of funds for legal cases or otherwise, and organise demonstrations of solidarity with imprisoned anarchists and other prisoners. If you know of any one inside who would like to be added to our prisoner lists, or you would like to get involved then please email us:
