On Wed 9th of August, Krzysztof Wantoch-Rekowski - a longtime activist of the Polish Anarchist Federation and Food Not Bombs from Poznań - was detained by the police. He has been put into jail for six weeks for... destroying his identity card (article 276 of the Penal Code).
We are calling for expressions of solidarity with Krzysztof:
1. sending protest letters to the Ministry of Justice
2. sending solidarity letters to the prison where Krzysztof is being detained.

Below is a sample of the letter to the Ministry:
I, signed below, protest against the detention of Krzysztof Wantoch-Rekowski - a longtime activist with the Polish Anarchist Federation from Poznan and Food Not Bombs group - in prison in Poznan. His sentence is unnecessarily harsh and illustrates the repressive character of the Polish state. I demand his immediate release!
