BK/NY – Tuesday, November 11th – Letter-writing to 5E3 and Eric King

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm (sharp), Tuesday, November 11th, 2014
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: NEW LOCATION
COST: Free
5E3_Eric KingNEWSFLASH: We’re anarchists. That should come as no surprise– it’s right there in our name. We organize as anarchists– collectively, against the state and capital. So for us to move the letter-writing dinners we have consistently hosted for about eight years to one of the few explicitly anarchist public spaces in the five boroughs simply makes sense. And how will we begin this leg of the journey? By writing to imprisoned anarchists!

Carlos López Martin, Fallon Rouiller, and Amélie Trudeau make up the 5E3, who are being charged by the Mexican state for an arson of a Nissan dealership and the neighboring ministry of communication and transportation in January of this year. On October 31, 2014, they were each sentenced by the federal court to seven years and six months imprisonment for the attack on the Secretariat of Communications and Transport. The three still await non-federal sentencing for the attack on a Nissan dealership.

Eric G. King, a 28-year-old vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, Missouri. Eric allegedly threw a hammer through a window of the building and then threw two lit bottles inside, though both failed to ignite. NOTE: Eric is pre-trial. DO NOT write about his arrest, his case, or the charges he faces. Too often, letters written to comrades who are pre-trial, and discuss those things, are used as evidence at trial.

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.
