The flames of anger remain in the coldness of the closed centers. They consumed a sheet in a cell on Monday night in the closed centre of Vottem, as voices rose louder and louder against the detention conditions. Accident or act of rebellion, who cares. The fact remains that the repression continues. The police showed up to put 5 people in the hole. One was released while the four others remain there this Tuesday evening. The robocops beat them up of course before throwing them in the bottom of a hole. We still don’t know what condition these people are in, or if any are badly injured.
It’s hard to fight and keep hope in the bottom of these pits. And isolating them deals a final blow to this momentum.
Let’s not let the sparks go out, Let’s unite our flames.
