Call-out from the IWW's Incarcerated Workers Organising Committee:
We need everyone to get in touch with HMP Full Sutton to demand that an IWW member is not exposed to harm.
Kevan Thakrar is currently being held in the Close Supervision Centre (CSC) at HMP Full Sutton. He is being moved to a cell next to a prisoner who recently attacked Kevan with a metal flask. The cell is in a blind spot with no CCTV, and Kevan and his family are worried he’s being set up for another attack. Kevan has repeatedly been the victim of racist attacks by other prisoners and guards during his time in prison, most recently when he was stabbed with a shank on 23 December 2019.
Prison guards have previously ignored assaults, and Kevan has not been allowed to access appropriate healthcare.We need everyone to get in touch with HMP Full Sutton to demand that Kevan is NOT MOVED TO THIS CELL. Phone calls, emails, letters all help keep Kevan safe and shows the prison governor that we are aware of what’s happening.
We need as many people to write and call as possible.Follow the link - there's a script you can use when you phone or write: https://iwoc.iww.org.uk/2020/02/13/protectkevan2/
