Call to write a letter to Maja

On the evening of 11 December, anti-fascist Maja from Jena was arrested in Berlin on charges from the Budapest trial and has been in custody since 12 December. As the Jena solidarity group for the Budapest trial, we are calling for support. Send Maja letters and postcards! Mail from outside is very important for prisoners, whether at the beginning or in the course of their imprisonment. It gives them courage and strength. It also shows the authorities that our people are not isolated, but that many people are behind them and that what happens in prison is recognised outside. A lot of mail is also protection.

We are not publishing Maja’s real name or the prison at this point. If you want to send mail, you can send it to us in the following two ways.

By post to:
Gefangenensolidarität Jena
c/o Infoladen Jena
Schillergässchen 5
07745 jena

By e-mail (please ask for PGP key) to

Please note the following information:

  • Let us know in a note which name you would like to use for the letter to the prison and how we should send you the reply (e-mail address, postal address, in person).
  • Maja does not use pronouns.
  • Please enclose stamps (€ 0.85), which we will send to Maja, and indicate in your letter to Maja how many stamps you have enclosed.
  • No comments on the ongoing Process.
  • The investigations are continuing, possibly also into a criminal organisation under § 129 StGB. This means that the mail will be read and may end up in the investigation files, including certain content and names. Make a conscious decision about how much you want to reveal about yourself. You can also write to prison under a different name (see above).
  • Otherwise, don’t worry about what exactly you should write. It’s all about the gesture.

If you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail (see above).
