Freedom Now! by Thomas Meyer Falk


If you fight against the state, if you fight for a
better world, fight for freedom, there is a chance
that you will get thrown to the cage, that is the
place where I stay. For over 15 years now. In the
infernal regions, kept in isolation for security
reasons, for more than 10 years. I was arrested in
1996, and only released into the general prison
population in 2007.

In October 1996 I was arrested after a bank robbery to
raise money for left-wing projects, legal and illegal ones. I was convicted
to 11 and a ½ years and P.D. (Preventive Detention, based on a Nazi-law from
1933 which permits the state to keep me in custody for a life-time, as long
as they believe that I am a threat to public safety). Because I fought
back strong they kept me in isolation for more than 10 years; I have
spent the last 4 years in the general prison population, but I refuse to
cooperate with the state nor accept forced labour. So a 2009 parole
court found no reason to release me. In 2013 my sentence will be
completed and I will get transferred to another maximum security prison
for the P.D. In fact the P.D. should have began in 1998, but I have had
a few more trials in the last decade for insulting judges / politicians
and prison staff; for that I got another 5 and a ½ years (not a joke!).

No person was killed by me, no one was injured (for the hostages in the
bank there was trauma, we should not close one's eyes to that, but that
was more than 15 years ago now); I don't know how long the state will
keep me in it's cages but there is no way for me to co-operate with
them. Nor with the prison staff, nor with the courts, nor with
psychologists or anyone else from the state.

I am sure there is little chance that the courts will set me free in the
next 5 or more years; but if people outside show the Governor that there
is a strong movement and support, he may throw me out of the cage.

So I would really appreciate it if you could write letters and e-mails to:

Ministerpräsident (Title of the governor in Germany)
Mr. Kretschmann
Richard Wagner Str.15
D-70184 Stuttgart

Fax: 0049-711-2153-340
Phone: 0049-711-21530

and request him to give me liberty!

In the struggle!
