Each year, June 11th serves as an international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long term anarchist prisoners.  The June 11th collective has spent the past couple of weeks interviewing various folks doing direct support work for some of the prisoners featured on this day, including Eric King, Jeremy Hammond, the Cleveland 4, Nicole Kissane & Joseph Buddenberg, among others.  You can check those out and give them a listen here!

Join NYC ABC this Tuesday to write cards to these folks to let them know we’re thinking about them.

If for some insane reason you can’t join us Tuesday, be sure to check out more information about June 11th, including how it started and how it has evolved, here.

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.
