Kev Solidarity Fund

We are raising money in solidarity with Kevan Thakrar, held captive in prison for 13 years. In 2008 at the aged of 20 Kevan began serving a life sentence, with a minimum term of 35 years, under the racist “joint enterprise” doctrine.

Kevan’s refusal to submit to racist abuse from prison guards has made him a target for reprisals. Notably, in 2010 he suffered a premeditated attack in his cell by HMP Frankland guards. When he fought back he was charged with attempted murder and GBH, and put in solitary confinement, where in one form or another he remains to this day. The charges were sufficiently brazen that a jury cleared him unanimously in a rare victory against the testimony of prison offices. 

Nevertheless, as retribution against him, Kev has spent 11 years in Closed Supervision Centres (CSCs). CSCs are, in Kev's own words, "the English version of American supermax prisons, indefinite solitary confinement within the most oppressive and brutal environment found in this country. Psychological warfare is used upon its victims on a constant basis, with frequent physical attacks supplementing the arbitrary punishment."

Kev needs money to pay for phone credit to maintain contact with loved ones outside. We are ideally looking for regular contributions, but whatever you are able to give will be appreciated - no amount is too small!
