BK/NY – Tuesday, April 24th – May Day Card-Writing for Imprisoned Comrades

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, April 24th, 2012
WHERE: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
COST: Free

Red and Black, Class Attack

We’re closing in on May Day, and the cops in NYC are on edge. After being outmaneuvered by 150 anarchists during an anti-cop street demonstration, the cops decided to crack some skulls. When threatened, they attack. We’re expect plenty of attacks in the next ten days.

Maybe you’ve probably been working too many hours a week to even notice the full-blown war being waged against you by cops and the ruling class. It is real and it is continuing. And of course there is another war– the war against folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here’s where we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our fifth annual May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist political prisoners and there’s an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks you don’t already know, and show some base level solidarity with those behind bars.

BK/NY – Tuesday, April 10th – Letter-Writing for Eric Desouza and Justin Solondz

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, April 10th, 2012
WHERE: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
COST: Free

We are in what folks from many walks of life call crunch time. There are only a few weeks until the May First General Strike is upon us. In the meantime, we have an anarchist book fair, a nationwide tour in support of long term anarchist political prisoners, and we’re ending the first week of Freedom Month for Puerto Rican political prisoners. With all that going on, don’t forget to leave time for dinner. NYC ABC is back this week with another every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner, this time focusing on two recently imprisoned comrades– Operation Backfire prisoner Justin Solondz and anti-fascist Eric Desouza.

Justin Solondz recently plead guilty to conspiracy and arson in relation to an action claimed by the Earth Liberation Front. The action at University of Washington’s Center for Urban Horticulture in 2001 caused six million dollars in damages. Justin is currently serving a seven year federal prison sentence.

Eric Desouza was arrested at a demonstration against neo-Nazis in Sacramento, California in late February 2012. He was originally facing six charges and had bail posted at $100,000. He eventually plead guilty to felonious resisting executive orders which allowed for a considerably shorter sentence.

If you are unable to make it to dinner, please write letters to Justin and Eric:

BK/NY – Tuesday, March 27th – Letter-Writing for Women’s History Month, Part Two

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, March 27th, 2012
WHERE: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
COST: Free

Wow, NYC. Just wow. Leading up to the May 1st general strike, it seems as though the NYPD is shook. With Occupy moving to Union Square, thousands marching in outrage over the murder of Trayvon Martin,  and folks taking the streets during “spring training,” Michael Bloomberg’s private army are having a difficult time keeping up. This does nothing to mitigate the violence these cops perpetuate against folks in our neighborhoods day in, day out, but it allows for a common understanding of who they protect and who they are willing to brutalize, rape, and kill to maintain a specific type of order. As for those who rebel against this social order, we offer the strongest solidarity. And in this month of women’s history, we offer our solidarity to female rebels at our every-other-week political prisoner letter writing dinner. We’ll be providing updates and a little background on Debbie, Janet and Janine Africa, Sadie, Lynne Stewart, and Kellie VanOrden.
