portland antifa 2019Hey guys! Are you ready to hear something literally crazy? Guess who the United States government and its flunkies in various state and local police departments are targeting to punish with potentially decades in prison. No, not billionaire capitalists and corrupt politicians (even when they are the same person). No, the state is laser focused on individual anti-racists and antifascists with the audacity to stand up against bigotry and systematized white supremacy. A not-too-deep reading of the history of this country reveals that it is founded, and relies, on white supremacy. So don’t expect the state to eat itself, ouroboros style. So until we can collectively push the twin monsters of the state and capital over the goddamned cliff, NYC ABC will support those folks trying to do just that–political prisoners and POWs. This Tuesday’s political prisoner letter-writing dinner will focus on Gage Halupowski, currently jailed for alleged actions in Portland, Oregon. NOTE: Gage is awaiting trial, so please do not write about anything illegal, overtly political, or likely to be used against him if it shows up in a court transcript. For tips on writing to prisoners, see nycabc.wordpress.com/write-a-letter

We expect to see you on Tuesday. If you can’t make it, please take the time to write a letter to Gage:
Gage Halupowski #817981
Multnomah County Jail
11540 Inverness Drive
Portland, Oregon 97220

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.
