Has to say about black cross in finland. My friend (R.I.P.) was at jail from stabbing 3 years or something. He was drunk and drugs and shamed of he's doings. Victim stayed alive and no one had really nothing aganst him just drunken arguing.  I mentioned one anarchist meeting some black cross "hello to prison" -cards writing that my friend is in jail, they were willing to add him to mailing list, asking he's name and prison. ... without knowing what he has done and what was the case. I said that absolutely not, he is not "victim", I didnt tell reason why he was in prison. Still they keep asking it like being in prison would be thing. I just think that it is not none of your bussiness, you dont even know the guy, even you would (know him),  you would not know he's real name. What you would write to some random drunken stabbing - support letter, to some one totally unknown?  I lost my intrest to whole black cross thing, being prison is not thing what to support .... or something something. I want share this story because  is persons who kind of act against idelogy what they present, they push away them (like me) who would like to chage things, pushing away by being too pushy, intrude.
