Kite Line- August 25, 2017: Kara Wild- From the Midwest to a French Prison

Play

This week’s story is that of Kara Wild. An anarchist prisoner from Chicago, Kara is a trans woman who has been in a French prison for over a year and a half. We first give some background on her case, and then hear from her friends and loved ones, who share some stories about Kara.

We close with a song written and performed by Kara herself. Back in April, Kara wrote a powerful letter about her unyielding stance toward the judicial system which you can read at her support site: freekarawild.org. On the site, you can also see her artwork, and get information on how to write to her.
