BK/NY – Tuesday, April 10th – Letter-Writing for Eric Desouza and Justin Solondz

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, April 10th, 2012
WHERE: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
COST: Free

We are in what folks from many walks of life call crunch time. There are only a few weeks until the May First General Strike is upon us. In the meantime, we have an anarchist book fair, a nationwide tour in support of long term anarchist political prisoners, and we’re ending the first week of Freedom Month for Puerto Rican political prisoners. With all that going on, don’t forget to leave time for dinner. NYC ABC is back this week with another every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner, this time focusing on two recently imprisoned comrades– Operation Backfire prisoner Justin Solondz and anti-fascist Eric Desouza.

Justin Solondz recently plead guilty to conspiracy and arson in relation to an action claimed by the Earth Liberation Front. The action at University of Washington’s Center for Urban Horticulture in 2001 caused six million dollars in damages. Justin is currently serving a seven year federal prison sentence.

Eric Desouza was arrested at a demonstration against neo-Nazis in Sacramento, California in late February 2012. He was originally facing six charges and had bail posted at $100,000. He eventually plead guilty to felonious resisting executive orders which allowed for a considerably shorter sentence.

If you are unable to make it to dinner, please write letters to Justin and Eric:
