The purpose of the website is to provide a home for some of our publications on practical security for activists and campaigners, all of which are free to download.
We've put a lot of time into the Activist Security Handbook - it is now a whooping 70 pages of tightly written text - and we hope it will be of use to every kind of campaigner. Small parts are specific to the United Kingdom but the majority of it will be suitable to people working all over the world.
Advisory Service For Squatters is an unpaid collective of workers who have been running a daily advice service for squatters and homeless people in the UK since 1975. Operates Mon-Fri 14.00-18.00 and can be contacted by phone, email or fax. Personal callers are advised to telephone first to make sure a volunteer is available.
Essential info and resources can also be found on the website.
ABCF is a national network of support groups providing practical support to class-struggle political prisoners. Local chapters often organise letter-writing sessions for supporters to meet up and write to political prisoners. Where possible, they will visit POWs. They also fundraise to ensure that prisoners of war can buy the items they require while in prison.
Groups campaign to highlight the cases of those imprisoned for resisting the state, and build links with the communities and campaigns that the prisoners were involved with.
