Le Puzzle Anational. En solidarite evec Les Prisonniers des G.A.R.I., du MIL, de la Bande a Baader, et a Martchenko d'U.R.S.S.

Ephemeral publication put out by the Individualistas Libertarios Esperantistas in demonstration of their solidarity with prisoners of various 1970's anarchist groups, consisting of a green double-sided illustrated envelope housing seven loose sheets printed on one half with texts in French such as "L'Irrationnal en politique - Vers de nouveaux rivages" and "Conditionnement autoritaire - Repression sexuelle", and on the other with images to be cut into pre-addressed postcards. Illustrated. 7 sheets 4to., green portfolio folio-size. Envelope stapled at either end, multiple tears along edges, one tear approximately 3-1/2 inches in length to front which goes through the first "Z" in "Puzzle". N.p., n.d. (circa 1975).

The heading of the outer sleeve mentions solidarity with several anarchist groups, including G.A.R.I. (Revolutionary Internationalist Action Groups), MIL (Movimiento Ibérico de Liberación/Iberian Liberation Movement), Bande a Baader (RAF), and specifically with Anatoli Martchenko, a Soviet dissident writer who died as a result of a hunger strike after 11 years in prison. The addressees of the postcards include: Michel Camilleri and Mario Ines Torres (both members of G.A.R.I.) at La Santé Prison in Paris; Jean-Marc Rouillan (a member of both G.A.R.I. and MIL), also at La Santé Prison; a postcard addressed to "BAADER - carte pour tous le groupe, Prisonnier politique allemand, Prison de la torture silencieuse"; and Anatoli Martchenko, housed at "un des camps de déportation en Sibérie ou dans une prison secrète du K.G.B.). Very scarce; as of October 2019, this item is not listed in either KVK or OCLC. We can trace a yellow variant, apparently only issued as a poster, without the content, at Centre International de Recherches sur l'Anarchisme (CIRA, Lausanne). Book ID: 50172
