SET THEM FREE: In Solidarity with Political Prisoners and their Struggles against Fascism
On 3 December 2020, the International League of People’s Struggles (ILPS) Commission 3 will lead the commemoration of the International Day of Solidarity with Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War.
Through the years, political persecution and fascism remain as the main responses of imperialist nations and their neocolonial regimes to quell dissent and other forms of protests and struggles by peoples, activists, leaders and liberation and revolutionary movements. This year, the call to release political prisoners has become more pronounced especially in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, amid the dire and inhuman situation in prisons throughout the world and the increasingly draconian measures that impact on people’s basic rights and civil liberties.
In this webinar, we will witness the plight of political prisoners from the different countries as well as accompanying cultural performances.
