Yet more prisoners:
John Bowden (6729) HMP Shotts, Canthill Road, Shotts, Lanarkshire, Scotland, ML7 4LE.
Long-term prison resister who has been in jail all his adult life since 1982, after being convicted of murder.
Politicised by his prison experiences, he has survived long periods of isolation, brutal beatings, and treatment
amounting to torture. He is one of the UK’s most articulate & vociferous prison writers, and a powerful
advocate of prisoner’s rights. He is now eligible for open prison. He is still fighting for parole, still fighting the
prison system. During December 2011 John was put into solitary confinement in HMP Shotts in Scotland. This
was done after allegations that he was part of the “jail-wide” organisation of a sit down protest in the exercise
yard, despite the fact that there was no evidence, the apparent protest did not take place and no-one else was
punished for the “jail-wide threat”. See http://bristolabc.wordpress.com/prison-texts/john-bowden/
He is now out of solitary confinement and continues to appreciate correspondence.
Ben Gunn (A8761AN) HMP Sudbury, Ashbourne, Derbyshire, DE6 5HW.
Lifer has served 31yrs on a 10yr tariff, largely for standing up for prisoner’s rights. He was on the roof of
Horfield prison during the April 1990 prison riots. He is a jailhouse lawyer fighting to establish an Association
of Prisoners (prisoners union) and get votes for prisoners. Has now been recommended for parole, but also
diagnosed with cancer. Now in a Cat D prison. see prisonerben.blogspot.com
Kevan Thakrar – A4907AE, Close Supervision Centre (CSC), HMP Woodhill, Tattenhoe Street, Milton
Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK4 4DA
Kev was sentenced to 35 years in October 2008 for three counts of murder, two of attempted murder and one
firearms offence. After being charged Kev states that police officers told him when he was taken out for
exercise, “we know you didn’t do it but if you don’t help us we will make sure you serve 50 years”. He is now
in the Close Supervision Centre at HMP Woodhill, veritable torture units. Many letters to Kev have been
returned by HMP Woodhill stating that he is no longer at this establishment. Kev is still at HMP Woodhill. if
your mail is returned to you in this manner please write directly to governor Nigel Smith with your complaint.
In Nov 2011, Kev was found not guilty of attempted murder, wounding with intent and GBH against prison
officers in HMP Frankland. The finger of blame was instead pointed directly back at the Prison Service, whose
regime of racism and violence was clearly exposed throughout the four-week trial. He is now awaiting transfer
from CSC HMP Woodhill. He is also sending his case to the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC). He
really appreciates letters and is an avid reader. His date of birth is 09/03/1987 and he is from the North of
London/Hertfordshire area. Check out his website! See: justiceforkevan.com

8 мая 2009 года Куйбышевский районный суд С-Петербурга приговорил антифашиста Алексея Бычина к 5 годам лишения свободы по статье 111, ч. 3 УК РФ (умышленное причинение тяжкого вреда здоровью двух и более лиц).
В драке, которая случилась в ночь с 12 на 13 июня 2008 года, Алексей Бычин использовал нож в ходе самообороны от двух неонацистов, которые до этого прогуливались по Невскому проспекту, вскидывая руки в нацистском приветствии и выкрикивая “зиг хайль”. Алексей нанёс ножевое ранение одному из них, после чего неонацисты быстро скрылись. Впоследствии оказалось, что один из них – сотрудник МВД. 16 июля 2008 года Алексей был арестован и взят под стражу. Освобожден в 2011 году по УДО. (more…)
