July Political Prisoner Birthday Poster now out!

From our comrades at The Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective:

Hello Friends and Comrades,
Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for July. As always, please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your own.

Firstly, please write Justin Solondz a letter. After being extradited from China and convicted of Earth Liberation Front actions in the United States, Green Scare target Justin Solondz has been transferred to a prison in western Pennsylvania. This puts him much closer to his parents than when he was imprisoned at FDC SeaTac. Please let Justin know you’re thinking about him by sending a card or letter to:

The second anniversary of the international day of solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and other longterm anarchist prisoners has just passed. Read a report back on many of the inspiring protests here.

The Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective is proud to have just published a new piece of prisoner’s writing on unity, truce efforts, and political consciousness in US gangs. The zine, entitled What Better Time Than Now?, presents a number of interesting topics like the forming of identity through historical consciousness and revolt, the co-optation of such identity through musical and artistic forms, and the role of street gangs in the rebellions of the future.

Our lovable comrades of the Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army are embarking on a month-long tour presenting their newest production, “Donny Quixote!” The show offers a scathing critique of “green” capitalism and technologya a humorous adaptation of the story of Don Quixote. MRPA will offer two other feature performances as well, alongside a wide range of literature relating to the content of the shows. If you’re on the eascoast or in the midwest you should definitely check them out.

Lastly, here is a link to the Political Prisoner/Prisoner Of War every-other week update by the NYC-Anarchist Black Cross. There are lots of good updates on many political prisoners.

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster For June Is Now Available

From the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective

Hello Friends and Comrades, here is the political prisoner birthday poster for June. As always, please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your own.

First, we are losing our space. This is a moment of crisis for us and we’re asking for those of y’all who are able to help us with this transition. Please read our statement about our situation here

The second anniversary of the international day of solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and other longterm anarchist prisoners is nearly upon us! To list your event, find a nearby event or to find out how you can support Marie Mason and Eric McDavid here.

Over the past month, the FBI has initiated a spate of entrapment operations designed to frame anarchists as “terrorists.” Significantly, they have not targeted longtime organizers, but rather people who are relatively peripheral to anarchist communities.

There is an excellent article discussing this here.

Latest reports state that the Virginia Prison Hunger Strike is still going strong. Please spread the word about it. You can find out what you can do to support it here.

We got this info late, but please add Russell Kilfoil to your birthday lists.
