Prepare for Battle Against Human Rights Abuses
and Police Brutality in Czech Jails
INPEG has received reports from
protestors who were jailed and have now been
released. The reports have confirmed that many
arrested demonstrators have been denied basic
human rights in jails such as access to food,
water and sleep, and some have also been severely
beaten. See our September 28, 2000 press release for more information.

If you're outside the Czech Republic, organize a
rally at the Czech embassy in your country. A
large group of Spaniards pressured the Czech
Embassy in Spain to release Spanish protestors
from jail. On September 28, Spanish protestors
were released, but many chose to stay in jail as
an act of jail solidarity, demanding that
arrested protestors of other nationalities get
the same treatment. Similar protests outside of
Czech embassies have been organized in Barcelona,
Paris and Oslo.
