Blockade of Valencia prison, unions call for a “dead prisons” day

Unions are calling for a “dead prisons” day across the country after the attack on a prison van which left two dead and three injured. The movement is national, but it raises the question of the appeal trial of the HRD killer, Gabriel Fortin, who is detained in Valence and whose appeal trial is currently taking place.

Following the attack on a van on Tuesday, May 14, which was transporting an inmate, which left two prison officers dead and three injured, emotions are high among the officers.

The main prison guard unions reiterated their solidarity with their colleagues and denounced in a joint leaflet the lack of resources allocated to prisons and the conditions for extracting prisoners.

This Wednesday, May 15, they are calling for a “dead prisons” day, a day that could be renewed. A minute of silence will be observed throughout the administration.

Blockades are taking place almost everywhere in front of establishments. There are about 150 of them in front of the prison,”we are all here in support of our murdered colleagues”says one of the union representatives.

In Valence, where Gabriel Fortin, nicknamed the HRD killer, is detained, whose appeal trial is currently taking place, the question of his appearance before his judges arises.

A union representative explains: “the particular case of this individual does not arise here since he was transferred to another establishment during his trial, but the problem will arise in the other prison where he is, because the agents are also blocking over there”.

At 11 a.m. this morning, a minute of silence will be observed. At 2 p.m., the union organizations will be received by the Minister of Justice in Paris. “We will see at that time if we continue the actions” assure the unions.
