NYC – Tuesday, November 25th – Letter-Writing Dinner For American Indian Warriors Oso Blanco and Leonard Peltier

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, November 25th, 2014
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)

NOTE: NEW LOCATION
COST: Free
oso_leonard 2014It’s supper time again, and we’re back at The Base for our every-other-week Political Prisoner Letter Writing Dinner. As anarchists, it should come as no surprise that we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving– we’ll take you’re damned day off from work, but not in exchange for commemorating the historic and ongoing genocide of indigenous folks and the 250 million turkeys who are killed each year. While we might be eating the fruits of the fall harvest, don’t confuse that with an acceptance of the Thanksgiving myth.

This Tuesday’s dinner will focus on two indigenous Political Prisoners: Oso Blanco and Leonard Peltier and we are fortunate to have guest speakers– Maggie from NYC Free Peltier and Ainsley B, a friend of Oso Blanco.

Oso Blanco was labeled “Robin the Hood” by the FBI for repeatedly expropriating funds from banks, only to give the money to folks in the hood and to the Zapatista rebels of Chiapas in southern Mexico. Also known as Byron Chubbuck, Oso Blanco is now serving 80 years in Lee, Virginia. For updates and ways to help, visit freeosoblanco.blogspot.com

Leonard Peltier is an American Indian Movement (AIM) warrior. In the 1970s, the United States government continued its legacy of decimating indigenous communities, focusing on those organized and prepared to challenge its authority. Peltier is imprisoned for the 1975 shoot-out between the FBI and AIM in which two federal agents and an indigenous man were killed. Four years after his imprisonment, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request released documents which prove Leonard Peltier’s innocence and the FBI’s targeting him. And still, Peltier remains imprisoned. For more information and ways to help, visit whoisleonardpeltier.info

This week we turn our attention to indigenous political prisoners. While we might be eating the fruits of the Fall harvest, don’t confuse that with an acceptance of the Thanksgiving myth.

Oso Blanco was labeled “Robin the Hood” by the FBI for repeatedly expropriating funds from banks, only to give the money to folks in the hood and to the Zapatista rebels of Chiapas in southern Mexico. Also known as Byron Chubbuck, Oso Blanco is now serving 80 years in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Unwilling to renounce his politics, Oso Blanco is periodically attacked and tortured by guards.
