BK/NY – Tuesday, June 7th – Letter-Writing to Support Eric McDavid and Marie Mason
What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm (sharp), Tuesday, June 7th, 2011
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Between wild asses getting wild against rapist cops and an anarchist memorial day/flag burning that drew out NYPD’s TARU and intel units, this old city is feeling itself rather nicely. It’s only through working together to pull this motherfucker down that we’re getting anywhere, and it’s time again to support the folks who have tried to do just that. The simple way NYC ABC does that is through every-other-week letter-writing dinners.
This week, in honor of the call for a June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid, we will be sending letters to them. If you don’t already know about either Eric or Marie, they are the two folks targeted under the Green Scare who face the longest sentences, around twenty years each.
If, for some crazy reason, you can’t join us, please write to Marie and Eric from home:
Marie Mason #04672-061
Post Office Box 27137
Fort Worth, Texas 76127
Eric McDavid #16209-097

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the 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 pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the Anarchist Birthday Brigade.
Getting to 885 Park Avenue is simple:
