Description

Mark Barnsley is one of Britain’s ‘secret’ political prisoners, a hostage
of the State. In 1994 he was attacked by 15 middle-class students, and ended
up sentenced to 12 years in prison for supposedly attacking them. This was
no ‘accidental’ miscarriage of justice, but a calculated move by the British
State to ‘take out’ a political activist, a long standing thorn in their
side. In The Hands Of The Enemy takes over where Beaten Up, Fitted Up,
Locked Up, the first Justice for Mark Barnsley pamphlet, left off. Using
articles written by friends, comrades, fellow-prisoners, and by Mark
himself, In The Hands Of The Enemy tells the story of a political prisoner
described by former Prisons Minister Paul Boateng as ‘a major ringleader for
prisoners unrest’, and exposes the depths that the State will go to to deal
with it’s enemies. If, no matter how light-heartedly, youí’e ever classed
yourself as an enemy of the State, you should read this before it’s too
late, and you too find yourself In The Hands Of The Enemy
