List of Antifascist Prisoners

Daniel Baker

Daniel Baker is a US army veteran and former YPG sniper, who fought Daesh/ISIS in Rojava. Upon his return home, he volunteered as a street medic and attended many Black Lives Matter demonstrations. In 2021, after the attempted insurrection at the U.S. capitol, Daniel called on Floridians to defend the state capitol from possible attack by the far-right. The FBI used this to build a case of “threats” and “inciting violence” against Dan, railroading him in court in May 2021. Five months later, Dan was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison.

Kita is an antifascist in Belarus who was among a dozen people whose homes were raided by police in March 2022. Kita’s trial took place in November 2022 and despite her attorneys making it obvious what a sham of a case the police & prosecutors had cobbled together, the judge still found her guilty and sentenced her to 31 months in prison.

Gage Halupowski

Gage was arrested at a counter demonstration against a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon on June 29th, 2019 and accepted a non-cooperation plea deal, pled guilty to an assault charge, and was sentenced to nearly six years in prison.

In addition to being anti-fascist, Gage is also radical environmentalist and an anarchist. So, discussing history,  politics or the ideologies of those movements as well could be a good place to start. He is also a fan of the fantasy novel series, The Wheel of Time and looks forward to reading all 12 books in the series while he’s in, so if you’ve read those or would like to he’d love to discuss them with you

Rodrigo Lanza

Rodrigo Lanza is an antifascist from Chile. In December of 2017, Rodrigo was out with friends at a bar in Spain when they were approached by a man who began insulting Rodrigo, calling him “sudaka” (a derogatory term for Latin Americans) and telling him to go back to his country. As Rodrigo attempted to leave the bar, Victor Lainez, a member of the fascist Falange group with many friends in the local fascist scene, pulled a knife. Rodrigo defended himself and in the ensuing fight, Lainez was killed.

In November 2019, Rodrigo was sentenced to five years in prison.

Lina

Lina is a German anti-fascist from Leipzig – a city that experienced more fascist-violence per capita than nearly anywhere else in Europe in 2020. Instead of contending with this wave of far-right attacks, police there chose to target anti-fascists – the very citizens willing to stand up to fascist mobs. Lina was one of the first anti-fascists the police rounded up and has been railroaded into prison, receiving an especially severe custodial sentence in 2020.

Lina’s support group has set up a website where they are posting updates & news about Lina & her case. If you wish to support Lina, you can make a donation to her via bank transfer to Rote Hilfe:

The Network Case

In 2017, Russian FSB agents arrested six anti-fascists as they played airsoft in the woods. After several documented torture sessions that included protracted beatings and electrocution, FSB agents arrested four more anti-fascists and fabricated a terror cell called “the Network” to prosecute the ten anti-fascists.

Two of the arrestees cooperated with the state, signed confessions, and provided information to implicate the other arrestees. Of the remaining arrestees, six have been convicted and received very severe prison sentences while two await trial.

The arrestees in need of support are:

Clockwise from top left: Andrey Chernov, Ilya Shakurskiy, Yuliy Boyarshinov, Mikhail Kulkov
From top left: Maxim Ivankin, Viktor Filinov, Vasiliy Kuksov, Dmitry Pchelintsev

Details about the arrestees are available in English, German, Polish, and Russian on their support group’s website.
