About Amadeu Casellas, political prisoner (Catalonia, Spain)

Grup de suporrt a Amadeu Casellas d'Osona | In regards to my recovery from the hunger strike, I feel much better. However, since I quit the hunger strike, they haven’t facilitated me any kind of dietary reinforcement. The medical services, apart from preventing the doctor we trust to see me, haven’t done anything. A big part of my recovery is owed to my prison mates, who have been giving me part of their meal, especially yogurts, fruit and pasta. The medical services have only given me vitamins in pills. Nevertheless, as I said, I feel quite recuperated and now it is only a matter of waiting for these 90 days to pass.

"This cop who did it must see what it is to kill a kid and to destroy a life."

emiliano | Amazing how different we are from other people in the world. In the US, teenagers are killed in cold blood every few weeks by police, and only minimal outcry is ever voiced, and usually it is from activists rather than the general public. We have become so totally jaded, consumed with our possessions, immersed in a sea of digits signifying the (ever more imaginary and precarious) financial wealth accredited to each of us, lost in our iPhones, boxed away for shipment in our SUVs, that the many deaths at the hands of the US government at home and abroad as well as the infinite harm we inflict on the world, well, we just don't notice it.

For perspective, here's a quote from the streets of Athens:

"Rage is what I feel for what has happened, rage," said one protesting student. "This cop who did it must see what it is to kill a kid and to destroy a life." more...  1 Comments
