Every day, she sent these poems to the politician responsible for legalising the F.I.E.S. once again, after the Supreme Court had declared this regulation null and void. She obtained his address by contracting a private investigator who specialises in tracing files to obtain personal information.
In parallel, she delivered some customised packages with samples of materials received to journalists contributing to the justice section of the official media and to the public ombudsman, inviting them to a press conference in which, with the collaboration of a former F.I.E.S. inmate and a lawyer, she provided them with more information.
Both the deliveries of materials and the press conference have been recorded, making evident which media have decided not to disclose the information. Each step of this action is based on white torture methods applied to prisoners subjected to the F.I.E.S.
Note by the artist:
In 1991, our society of democracy and rights, added the FIES regime (Fitxers d'Interns d'Especial Seguiment - Inmates under Special Observation)to our prison system. This makes use of measures of recruitment and isolation to force misfit prisoners into submission. These measures are not regulated by the Supreme Court, and are unconstitutional because prisoners' rights under the provisions of the Spanish Constitution were ignored, as well as the Penitentiary Regulations or the Penal Code, condemning inmates to vulnerability and helplessness, since the abuser himself must deliver any complaint regarding his own behaviour towards the prisoners.
