A brief outline of the solidarity in France with the Vincennes detention centre prisoners on trial and against all sorts of prison
On January 25th, 26th and 27th, ten former detainees of the Vincennes detention centre will be tried for a revolt.
During the first semester of 2008, revolts repeatedly occured in the Vincennes detention centre, a place where undocumented foreigners are locked up pending their deportation. On June 21st, a detainee died due to lack of care. The next day, the centre was burnt during a revolt. Later, a number of detainees were arrested and accused of arson and aggression against police officers. Most of them have been in preventiive jail for eight to twelve months.
