BK/NY – Tuesday, January 17th – Letter-Writing to Jordan Halliday and Mandy Hiscocks

What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, January 17th, 2012
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Cost: Free

And so comes 2012. Last time, we wrote about carrying energy and momentum into the new year, and here in NYC, it appears folks have answered that call. As the city builds toward a May Day General Strike, there is a lot of work to put in, including how to stay safe, especially in light of the machinations that put six comrades in prison following the 2010 Toronto G20. Speaking of…one of these comrades was remanded on January 13th. For this week’s political prisoner letter-writing night, we’ll be writing to her and to grand jury resister Jordan Hallliday, who was arrested and forced to start a ten month sentence well before his expected report date.

On January 10th, Federal Marshalls took Jordan to the Davis County jail for supposedly violating his parole by allegedly associating with folks who are vegan and straight edge– yes, a condition of his bail was that he could not associate with people who abstain from drugs and alcohol and are also vegan. After a successful call-in campaign, Jordan was finally given food he can eat and is now serving ten months for criminal contempt of a grand jury. He has already served time for civil contempt in regards to the same grand jury inquisition.

We are also writing to another of the 2010 Toronto G20 “Main Conspiracy” prisoners, Mandy Hiscocks. As we wrote when the first of these folks began their sentences, 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, watch this interview 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:

Post Office Box 130
Farmington, Utah 84025

BK/NY – Tuesday, December 20th – Come Support Canadian G-20 Comrade Leah Henderson

What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, December 20th, 2011
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Cost: Free
Hey, everyone. It’s supper time again. Coming off of an amazing Send Love Through the Walls holiday card party for political prisoners and prisoners of war, NYC ABC is carrying momentum into the new year. While joyous over the several comrades who were released from prison this year, we also mourn those who died behind bars. This sober fact reminds us that there is a lot of work to do to get our folks free. And other comrades are facing trials and sentencings that will require still more resolve in the support we provide. One practical means to support prisoners is through the Anarchist Black Cross Federation’s Warchest Program. Another is to come to NYC ABC’s every other week Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner.

This week we are writing to another of the 2010 Toronto G20 “Main Conspiracy” prisoners, Leah Henderson. As we wrote last time, 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, watch this interview 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 Leah, you can write to her from home. Check nycabc.wordpress.com for a current address following her sentencing.

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.
