As anarchists, we often have aims that seem unachieveable. A truly peaceful and democratic society? Maybe not in my lifetime. But sometimes there are differences that we can make. So if you’re tired of fighting uphill battles, Smash IPP has an idea for you. Thousands of people are serving IPP sentences with no release dates in UK jails. The law that put them inside indefinitely has been abolished, but they’re still in there, with the uncertainty having such a devastating effect on their mental health that over 50% of them self-harm. Come to Kebele Community Centre in Easton at 7pm after dinner to find out more about these forgotten prisoners and how you can help with the 2017 year to free all IPPs! We don’t see this as incongruent with our aims of prison abolition, more as a reduction of harm to vulnerable people. Anything that reduces the power and reach of the prison-industrial complex is fine by us.
