NYC – Tuesday, February 5th – Revolutionary Love For an Early Valentine’s Day

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, February 5th, 2013
WHERECAGE – 83A Hester Street New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free
This time last year, we were feeling the warmth of a coming global spring. This year, we see comrades from Egypt to Indonesia to Mexico attacking the state in capital. There’s a palpable tension between the authorities who keep cracking skulls and those rebels who continue to fight back. And for those rebels, still in the streets, or locked in a prison cell, we hold revolutionary love. With that love burning in our hearts, we host another of our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinners.

This week we’re having a Valentine’s Day card writing party for PPs and POWs in the region. But rather than looking to a holiday based on Christian martyrs from millennia ago and kept alive through consumerism and romantic coupling, we’re celebrating revolutionary love and solidarity. We love our imprisoned comrades and use this week’s card-writing night to manifest that love.

This time last year, we were buried under ice, winter unrelenting. This year, we are feeling the warmth of a coming global spring.

BK/NY – Tuesday, November 15th – NYC ABC + Book Thug Nation Host “Crimethinc. Presents: Capitalism & Resistance”

WHAT: CrimethInc. Presents: Capitalism & Resistance in the 21st Century
WHEN: 7:00pm, Tuesday, November 15th
WHERE: Book Thug Nation100 North Third Street (Between Berry Street and Wythe Avenue), Brooklyn
COST: Free. There will be copies of the Work book for sale at the event.
NOTE: If you can’t make it to this event, the same folks will be at ABC No Rio the next night.

After so much technological progress, why do we have to work more than ever before? Why is the old labor movement powerless to stop the new assault on workers? Can capitalism survive another century of crises? And how do we get out of this mess?

Please join us at Book Thug Nation for a high-energy discussion of these questions and more. We’ll focus on the ways capitalism has changed over the past few decades, and scrutinize recent examples of resistance in the US and overseas to propose anti-capitalist strategies for the 21st century.
