Weir, Jean. A Passion for Freedom : An interview with Jean Weir. Leeds ABC: 2011. 30 pages.
Despite her long involvement in our movement, Jean Weir’s natural modesty has made getting an interview out of her “like getting blood out of a stone”. Our comrades at the anti-prisons magazine ‘325’ succeeded though, and having read the interview with great interest when it was published in ‘325’ a couple of years ago, we thought that others would enjoy reading it as a small pamphlet.
In the interview, Jean talks about her experiences in Italian prisons in the 1990’s, and about the solidarity she received, both from comrades outside and from her fellow prisoners. As always she has much of interest to tell us, going on to speak about organising in Sicily in the1980’s and about her ideas in general.
