If you fight against the state, if you fight for a better world, fight
for freedom, there is a chance that you will get thrown to the cage –
that is the place where I stay. For over 15 years now. In the
infernal regions, kept in isolation for security reasons, for more
than 10 years. I was arrested in 1996, and only released into the
general prison population in 2007.
In October 1996 I was arrested after a bank robbery to raise money for
left-wing projects – legal and illegal ones. I was convicted to 11
and a ½ years and P.D. (Preventive Detention, based on a Nazi-law
from 1933 which permits the state to keep me in custody for a
life-time, as long as they believe that I am a “threat to public
safety”). Because I fought back strong they kept me in isolation
for more than 10 years; I have spent the last 4 years in the general
prison population, but I refuse to cooperate with the state nor
accept forced labour. So a 2009 parole court found no reason to
release me. In 2013 my sentence will be completed and I will get
transferred to another maximum security prison for the P.D. In fact
the P.D. should have began in 1998, but I have had a few more trials
in the last decade for “insulting judges / politicians and prison
staff”; for that I got another 5 and a ½ years (not a joke!).
No person was killed by me, no one was injured (for the hostages in the
bank there was trauma, we should not close one's eyes to that, but
that was more than 15 years ago now); I don't know how long the state
will keep me in it's cages but there is no way for me to “co-operate”
with them. Nor with the prison staff, nor with the courts, nor with
psychologists or anyone else from the state.
I am sure there is little chance that the courts will set me free in the
next 5 or more years; but if people outside show the Governor that
there is a strong movement and support, he may throw me out of the
So I would really appreciate it if you could write letters and e-mails to:
(Title of the governor in Germany)
request him to give me liberty!
