TUES (March 2nd) – Letter-writing Dinner in the Bronx!!!

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7:00pm (Sharp), Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010
WHERE: Red Roots Community Art Space in THE SOUTH BRONX! 503C Wales Avenue, Bronx, New York (See below for directions)
COST: FREE!

In the eternal ping-pong match pitting The Bronx against Brooklyn, NYC’s Anarchist Black Cross collective continues to bounce back and forth between the city’s best boroughs (sorry Manhattan, your reign is through). This week we’re back in The Bronx, at the ever-amazing Red Roots Community Art Space.

March is women’s history month, but we’re not focusing on Emelia Earhart or Hillary Clinton. No, we’re writing to three women from the MOVE 9, political prisoners who have been locked up for over thirty years.

The MOVE 9 are innocent men and women who have been imprisoned since 1979, following a massive police assault on MOVE headquarters in Powerton Village, Philadelphia (seven years before this assault the government dropped a bomb on MOVE killing 11 people, including 5 children).

A NOTE ON THE LOCATION: To our regulars from Brooklyn, you’ve stuck with us so far, please make the trip uptown! It will be worth it to check out this awesome space! To everybody who lives uptown and complains that it’s too far to come down and write letters in Brooklyn: now is your chance! See you on Tuesday!

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious meal, information about a political prisoner or group of 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, thanks to the Anarchist Birthday Brigade, pass around a birthday card for the PPs and POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks. Don’t miss this.

DIRECTIONS: Getting to the Red Roots Community Art Space is as easy as PIE (Shh! Will there be pie?):

From the 6 Train:
Walk west on 149th Street and make a left on Wales Avenue. We’re halfway down the block, just past the church.

From the 2,5 Train:
Walk south on Jackson and make a left on 149th Street, and make a right on Wales Avenue. We’re halfway down the block, just past the church.

If you have any trouble along the way, don’t hesitate to call 718.213.4209!
