Secret police detain Kurzyniec
On 31.10.2005 Marek Kurzyniec, member of the Anarchist Federation
and many pro-freedom and social initiatives, was detained in Krakow.
The detention was carried out by five secret police. They didn't give
any reason for the detention.
The moment chosen for the detention was not chosen randomly - on that day
and the following (1.11.2005), neither the courts nor the prosecutor had
working days. Neither the lawyer nor the family of the detained was
able to find a reason for the detention nor the duration for which Marek
was being detained.
One hypothesis for the detention is an unpaid fine for participation
in the human rights demonstration against the visit by war criminal
Vladimir Putin to Poland.
The most recent information concerning Marek, coming from his lawyer,
is that Marek will be held for 15 days, the court has assigned him some
sort of social work during his arrest, so this is no possibility of bail.
Since money is necessary, e.g. for sending parcels and so on, your
financial help to this bank account number would be appreciated:
13124025841111000039531751 Bank PEKAO SA
If you pay at a PEKAO (PKO) Bank, there should be no transfer costs.
Secondly, on Saturday 5.11.2005 at 19:00 a picket under the place of
arrest is planned, we don't yet know where this is, look around at
indymedia and other places for the info.
Thirdly, on Tuesday 8.11.2005 an action in many towns is planned, all
groups are invited...
