Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! 28 p. stapled pamphlet During the first five or six years of my imprisonment, I learned the survival strategies that got me through the last ten. These are the experiences I'm summarizing here. Bang. door to your cell is shut. You have survived the arrest, you are mad that you weren t more careful, you worry that they will get others too, you wonder what will happen to your group and whether a lawyer has been called yet of course you show none of this. weapon, the fake papers, your own clothes, all gone. prison garb and the shoes they ve thrown at you are too big maybe because they want to play silly games with you, maybe because they really blow terrorists out of proportion in their minds and the control over your own appearance taken out of your hands. You look around, trying to get an understanding of where you ll spend the next few years of your life. Prison Round Trip was first published in German in 2003 as Einmal Knast und zur?ck. essay s author, Klaus Viehmann, had been released from prison ten years earlier, after completing a 15-year sentence for his involvement in urban guerilla activities in Germany in the 1970s. essay was subsequently reprinted in various forums. It is a reflection on prison life and on how to keep one s sanity and political integrity within the hostile and oppressive prison environment; survival strategies are its central theme. Einmal Knast und zur?ck soon found an audience extending beyond Germany s borders. Thanks to translations by comrades and radical distribution networks, it has since been eagerly discussed amongst political prisoners from Spain to Greece. This is the first time the text is available to a wider English-speaking audience. Klaus s take on survival strategy tells us we can not only survive thusly but can as well continue to serve the cause of liberation which are really the same thing. We can be captured without giving in or giving up. from the Preface by North American political prisoner Bill Dunne.

More Description

Prison Round Trip is a reflection on prison life and how to keep one's sanity and political integrity behind bars. Grappling with themes of consciousness, the nature of freedom, and what it means to be alive, Klaus Viehmann wrote this essay ten years after being released from prison, having completed a 15-year sentence for his involvement in urban guerrilla activities in Germany. The preface by political prisoner Bill Dunne, held by the U.S. government for over thirty years now, shows that the nature of imprisonment, and the ways in which the human spirit can transcend it, are universal.
