With deep joy revolutionary, political prisoners and war of Peru, in this very significant date of April 17, combative send our greetings to all political prisoners in the world and our solidarity with their struggle for rights and freedom. And especially we assume the call to build the People’s Heroes Monument in honor of the massive heroism of the Peruvian people, including Heroes prisoners in El Fronton, Lurigancho and El Callao, who gave their blood and their lives to end oppression and exploitation and build a better world. This commemoration of the International Day of the Political Prisoner, occurs in a global context of long, slow recovery from the global economic crisis, the largest and most serious crisis of the capitalist system, expressing the deepening of inter-imperialist contradictions for the redivision of the world and configuring an anteroom of a new world war. Situation that sharpens the class struggle and contradictions in the world, the main: oppressed nations – imperialism, which is reflected in the constant aggression against the peoples of the world and the resistance and struggle of these.

In our country, highlight the indomitable struggle that we carry political prisoners struggling to Solution Politics, General Amnesty and National Reconciliation! McCarthyism facing political persecution and inquisitorial outside and inside prisons.

We reiterate our unwavering commitment to defend their lives and health and fight for their freedom. For his wife, Professor Elena Yparraguirre Revoredo, was in similar conditions for 15 years, and every so often is the target of reprisals for their unwavering ideological convictions.

The health of many prisoners is precarious and worsened by poor prison attention as in the case of Comrade Victor Zavala Cataño, renowned playwright who has over 82 years of age. Two months ago, the political prisoner Margi Evelyn Clavo Peralta, communist fighter lifetime, died with terminal cancer after 20 years in prison, accelerated death by torturing to which Peruvian state conditions, with Ollanta Humala in the lead collusion with the extreme right, he underwent. As part of this political persecution opened new prosecutions for acts 30 years ago to prevent the release of political prisoners Osman Morote, Margot Liendo and Victoria Trujillo Agurto, prisoners who have served their full sentence of 25 years but remain imprisoned. Also, after a year of persecution and detention of leaders and activists of Movadef, the rear freedom curbed the reactionary aim to imprison all the judicial process continues and it is being committed violations of due process to prevent political struggle for fundamental rights and general amnesty, which denounce and unmask. Worldwide, political prisoners fighting for better conditions and their right to freedom.
