NYC – 7:00pm, Friday, June 12th – Punk Rock Karaoke for Marius Mason and Longterm Anarchist Political Prisoners!
Every year in New York City, founding members of Marius Mason‘s support group and NYC Anarchist Black Cross have hosted an event for the Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason, Eric McDavid, and All Longterm Anarchist Prisoners, and this year Punk Rock Karaoke NORTHEAST is getting in on the action!
This event is BYOB. We will be selling set-ups (cups, ice, and mixers) so all you have to do is bring a bottle — we’ll handle the rest. We will also be selling incredible vegan baked goods — sweet and savory.
Tell your friends and come ready to have an awesome time!
More info on the benefit:
Marius Mason is serving a 22-year sentence for acts of environmentally motivated property destruction and is fighting to gain access to gender-affirming health care after announcing his transition last year.
Eric McDavid was originally sentenced to almost 20 years in prison after being entrapped by an agent provocateur, and after a surprise ruling by the federal courts, was released this year after almost a decade of incarceration. Building a new life for himself is the next phase of struggle for Eric, and we are committed to continuing our solidarity with him post-release.
