Solidarity with Rainer Loehnert, who attempted to escape from psychiatric prison (Germany)
Get away! – An attempt to escape from a place of annihilation
At the end of January, Rainer Loehnert has attempted to escape from a forensic psychiatry unit. Unfortunately his attempt failed and since then he is detained in the isolation unit inside the closed psychiatry. Thus a prison within a prison.
Rainer is 53 years old and he is imprisoned for more than 28 years, currently in a forensic psychiatry unit in Bedburg-Hau, a small town in the north-west of Germany, near the German-Dutch border. But he doesn’t give up the fight for his freedom! Rainer had recently participated in a solidarity hunger-strike for the prisoner’s struggles in Greece. (more info)
And now he has acted according to his own motto: “Anarchy and total liberation is not for free!” (from a letter of Rainer, at the end of January 2015) So he has once again faced up squarely to the ‘white pigs’ and took his life in his own hands. He didn’t want to wait for another humiliating psychological assessment, which certifies at regular intervals his “dangerousness” and “mental illness”.
And this happens whether he is playing by their rules or if he is rebelling against the “treatment” in captivity. A part of this perverse assessment says that the state/society deems it proper to lock Rainer away even for life: “You are a dangerous man, Mister Loehnert!” Also the filling with medicines is extremely important to the fascistic masterminds behind the scenes and to the nursing and medical staff.
The harmful side effects (of the medicines) are “good” to be integrated into the “therapy” or they are again treated with other medications. It is not surprising, that he writes again and again that he doesn’t know for how much longer he will hold on or survive. Quite recently in January, shortly before his attempted escape, there was another dead person in this forensic psychiatry unit: they were “cared to death!”
For more than one month now, Rainer is detained in isolation, and this means:
– being isolated from other inmates 24 hours a day, being just in contact with nurses.
– no walking in the yard (and even if so, then only in handcuffs and shackles).
– his belongings were confiscated, and the remaining food was trashed.
– own clothes are forbidden, just the hospital gown (known as “angel gown”).
– three times a day just one cigarette, only one pen and paper.
– restricted post.
– several surveillance cameras in his cell, at night with infrared.
– in mid-February, he writes that he has received at least a few books.
Rainer now will have to face a further trial, but he keeps his head up!
They don’t get him down! And with his letters he puts a smile on our lips again and again and encourages us. In his letter he continues:
“…. it’s a long way to go until a group is causing a revolt or an insurrection; in Germany the system and the psychological and economic constraints are really deep down inside the people, it takes time, [but] it is possible I know that!”
We still won’t leave Rainer alone. We want to fight together against this shitty and truly sickening prison-society. If you want to join: you can write to Rainer, send him some money, annoy/attack psychiatric facilities and/or other forms of prisons or whatever comes to your mind to sabotage this civilization being hostile to every living being.
Solidarity and powerful greetings to Rainer!
Freedom for Rainer!
Freedom for all!
Death to every authoritarian society!
