Tuesday, March 21st– Letter Writing for Bill Dunne

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing
WHEN: 7pm, Tuesday, March 21st, 2023
COST: Free

The situation remains dire in Atlanta as at least 25 people remain incarcerated for opposing Cop City and Defending the Atlanta Forest. For a list of folks who have given their permission to publicize their names and addresses, check out this new zine by our friends at Page One Collective. Use this guide to support these folks during their time behind bars. Print it out, hand it to your friends, leave a stack at the grocery store. A simple note of solidarity is all that’s needed to let people know they are not alone and to show the state that this is unacceptable.

Speaking of supporting people behind the walls, this week we turn our attention to one of the longest held anarchist prisoners in the so called united states, Bill Dunne.

Bill Dunne is an anti-authoritarian sentenced to 90 years for the attempted liberation of comrades from Seattle’s King County Jail in 1979 and for attempting to break himself out of Leavenworth Penitentiary in 1983. Dunne was charged with possession of an automatic weapon, auto theft, and with aiding & abetting the escape. Charges further alleged the operation was financed by bank expropriations and facilitated by illegal acquisition of weapons and explosives. Bill went before the parole board in the winter of 2014, was rejected and given a 15 year “hit” (meaning he cannot go back to the board for that time period).

Please take the time to write a letter to Bill:
Bill Dunne #10916-086
FCI Victorville Medium I
Post Office Box 3725
