Volkseten Vegazulu – Benefit for the (recently set free) anarchist prisoner Gabriel Pombo da Silva

Thursday November 10th 2016, Benefit for Gabriel, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Until June this year, Gabriel was a non-compliant anarchist prisoner in Spain. After 32 years, thereof nine years in a high security prison in Aachen, he became free in June for the time being, even though the Spanish state would like to deprive his liberty again, until 2032.

Gabriel grew up in a poor neighborhood in Vigo, Galicia. His posture, achievements and writings do motivate many people inside and outside the prison walls. Solidarity actions for his release has been conducted in Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece, Chile, Mexico and Argentina.

In summer this year, his case gained attention again. He was supposed to be released on the 17th of May but was further being hold in custody at the prison C. P. la Moraleja, in Dueñas. On the 9th of June, he was finally set free. Gabriel is currently free, but may face further prosecution by the state.

Tonight’s Voku is dedicated to financially support Gabriel.
