“We must never forget that – beyond the anecdotes and reminiscences, prison consists of so many reinforced boxes that millions of people all over the world are locked up in day and night. The latter are hostages of the State and live at the mercy of a hierarchy of vile cowards 24 hours a day.”

Despite her long involvement in our movement, Jean Weir’s natural modesty has made getting an interview out of her “like getting blood out of a stone”. Our comrades at the anti-prisons magazine ‘325’ succeeded though, and having read the interview with great interest when it was published in ‘325’ a couple of years ago, we thought that others would enjoy reading it as a small pamphlet.

In the interview, Jean talks about her experiences in Italian prisons in the 1990’s, and about the solidarity she received, both from comrades outside and from her fellow prisoners. As always she has much of interest to tell us, going on to speak about organising in Sicily in the1980’s and about her ideas in general.
