BK/NY – Tuesday, December 6th – Come Support Recently Imprisoned Canadian G-20 Comrades

What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, December 6th, 2011
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Cost: Free

While the state continues its coordinated assault on what it deems a threat, global capitalism moves ever closer to the precipice. Here in the states, revolt against capitalism comes from many directions. It’s impossible to imagine these actions outside the context of a history of struggle that includes the imprisonment of our comrades. To that end NYC ABC hosts another of our every-other-week Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinners.

This week we are writing to three Canadian comrades– Peter Hopperton, Adam Lewis, and Erik Lankin, recently imprisoned as the result of alleged organizing against the 2010 G-20 summit in Toronto. This case shows both the potential strength of revolutionaries working together and the depths of depravity to which the state will go to maintain itself and the economic system to which it remains beholden. For more information, read this analysis and continue to follow up by visiting Conspire to Resist and Guelph Anarchist Black Cross.

If for some insane reason you can’t make it out, but still want to support the prisoners, you can write to them at:

Peter Hopperton
Central North Correctional Centre
1501 Fuller Avenue
Penetanguishene, Ontario
L9M 2H4
Canada

Adam Lewis
Toronto West Detention Centre      Central North Correctional Centre
111 Disco Road                                1501 Fuller Avenue
Post Office Box 4950                       Penetanguishene, Ontario
Rexdale Ontario                               L9M 2H4
M9W5L6                                           Canada

Erik Lankin
Toronto West Detention Centre      Central North Correctional Centre
111 Disco Road                                1501 Fuller Avenue
Post Office Box 4950                       Penetanguishene, Ontario
Rexdale Ontario                               L9M 2H4
M9W5L6                                           Canada

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

DIRECTIONS:
Getting to 885 Park Avenue is simple:
From the J/M/Z:
Flushing Stop: Walk southeast on Broadway (toward Sumner Place, away from Thornton Street) and make a right on Park Avenue. We’re halfway down the block, on your right.
Myrtle Stop: Walk northwest on Broadway (toward Melrose Street, away from Troutman Street) and make a left on Park Avenue. We’re halfway down the block on the right.

From the G Train:
Flushing Avenue Stop: Walk south on Marcy Avenue (toward Hopkins Street, away from Wallabout Street) and turn left on Park Avenue. We’re three and a half blocks down on the left.
Myrtle-Willoughby Avenues Stop: Walk north on Marcy Avenue (toward Stockton Street, away from Vernon Avenue) and turn right on Park Avenue. We’re three and a half blocks down on your left

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Otherwise, we’ll see you at supper.

This event is brought to you by your friendly neighborhood Anarchist Black Cross.
