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.
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 PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

DIRECTIONS:
Getting to CAGE is simple:
From the J/M/Z:
Essex Street Stop: Walk west on Delancey Street (toward Essex Street, away from Norfolk Street) and make a left on Essex Street. Walk three blocks and turn right onto Hester Street. We’re two and a half blocks down, on the right.

From the F:
East Broadway Stop: Walk north on Rutgers Street (toward East Broadway, away from Henry Street), that becomes Essex Street, and turn left on Hester Street. We’re two and a half blocks down, on the right.

From the B/D:
Grand Street Stop: Walk east on Grand Street (Toward Forsyth Street, away from Chrystie Street) and turn right on Orchard Street. Walk one block and turn right onto Hester Street. We’re a few storefronts down on the right.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Otherwise, we’ll see you at supper.

This event is brought to you by your friendly neighborhood Anarchist Black Cross.
