Reportback: Day of Solidarity With Jock Palefreeman/ July 31st Day of Action

On July 25th, Chicago antifascists participated in the day of solidarity with Jock Palefreeman, an Australian antifascist imprisoned in Bulgaria for defending two Roma men who were being attacked by white supremacist soccer hooligans. This incident occurred in 2007 while Jock was traveling through Bulgaria. During the melee, one of the attackers was killed. Chicago antifascists stood outside of the Bulgarian consulate passing out fliers for Jock Palefreeman who is currently trying to serve the rest of his sentence in Australia to be closer to his family.

On July 31st, in conjunction with the day of solidarity for Jock as well as the annual July 31st day of action against fascism and racism, antifascists all across the city helped in a sticker campaign promoting support for Palefreeman. 200 stickers were placed all around the city that read "Fuck Fascism Fuck Racism" with a link to Jocks website.

Antifascists in Bloomington, IN held a hip hop shows partially for Jock Palefreeman. Aside from speaking with folks about Palefreemans case, they were able to raise some money for him.
