It’s time again for Denver’s annual Running Down the Walls 5k benefit. This will be our eighth annual run/walk in solidarity with U.S. held political prisoners and prisoners of war. Last year was the best year, and we need your help to make this year’s event even bigger!
Join us Sunday September 11th by the playground/picnic tables at the Sunken Gardens Park, 1099 Speer Blvd., Denver, CO 80204 at 10am with the run starting at 10:30am! Runs will be taking place in other cities and in prisons. Please be sure to arrive early to sign in and get your t-shirt. Food will be provided afterwards. Vegan options included. Bring everyone!
Every year prisoners and ABC chapters organize Running Down the Walls events to raise awareness and funds for political prisoners who are in need of support.

From NYC ABC:
The Warchest Program:
The Anarchist Black Cross Federation (ABCF) has initiated a program designed to send monthly checks to those Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War who have been receiving insufficient, little, or no financial support during their imprisonment. The Warchest program was initiated in November 1994. Its purpose is to collect monthly funds from groups and individual supporters, and send that money to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War (PP/POW) via monthly checks. Over the last two decades, the ABCF warchest has dispensed over $75,000 to political prisoners in the United States. Currently, there are ten imprisoned comrades who receive a monthly stipend as part of the program; they are:
Russell Maroon Shoatz
Alvaro Luna Hernandez
Robert Seth Hayes
Maliki Shakur Latine
