NYC/NYE – Noise Demo Against the Prison Industrial Complex, In Solidarity with PPs and POWs

noise demo flyerWHAT: Noise Demo Against the PIC, for the Liberation of PPs + POWs
WHEN: 9:00pm, Tuesday, December 31st
WHERE: Metropolitan Correction Center (MCC, the federal prison in downtown Manhattan); Pearl Street, between Cardinal Hayes Place and Park Row (J to Chambers Street or 4/5/6/ to City Hall)
BRING: Noisemakers, air horns, drums, anything that is loud!

On the noisiest night of the year in New York City, come help us remind folks locked up that they are not alone. NYC Anarchist Black Cross, in response to an international call for noise demonstrations outside of prisons, is asking folks to join us outside of the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan. Come, not to appeal to authority, speak truth to power, or any other contrivance, but rather to stand arm in arm with comrades and show direct solidarity to those on the other side of the wall.

The state, writ large, is targeting anarchists all across the United States and abroad. This will be both protest and celebration. To keep the cold at bay, comrades from MACC will be on hand with cookies and hot cocoa to keep the vocal cords nice and warm.

The hits just keep on coming! In the last few months, NYC ABC reported on the release of several of the political prisoners we support, and with this event announcement, we can also confirm that Standing Rock 6 water protector prisoner Little Feather has been released to a halfway house! Welcome (halfway) home, Little Feather!  Good news, bad news, or no news at all doesn’t keep us from supporting political prisoners in one of the most basic ways–by sending them cards and letters. So we are back with our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner and this one is sorta special. There are so many upcoming birthdays that we will be hosting a birthday card night and you’re invited. Will there be a cake? Show up to find out! If you can’t make it, but want to play along, check out the NYC ABC political prisoner birthday calendar and send a card from wherever you are.

BK/NY – Tuesday, July 9th – Letter Writing Dinner for Eric King

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner

It’s rare we get good news in the political prisoner support world, or even the anarchist world, as you all well know. But recently NYC ABC was thrilled to find out that Eddie Africa, one of the MOVE 9 political prisoners, was released on Friday, June 21st after serving an abominable 40 years in prison.  WELCOME HOME EDDIE! You can support the struggle to get parole for the two remaining MOVE 9 prisoners–Chuck and Delbert, via the Abolitionist Law Center. In the meantime, we keep grinding and hosting every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinners, and this week is no different.

This week NYC ABC will be writing to anarchist prisoner Eric King, who certainly feeds off of news of fellow political prisoners to keep his fire burning while inside. Eric is a vegan anarchist prisoner serving a 10 year sentence for an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, Missouri in September 2014. Eric was charged with throwing a hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov cocktails. The criminal complaint states that both incendiary devices failed to ignite. We encourage folks to send him a card or letter and spread the word about him if not already doing so. More information can be found at supportericking.org.

If for what ever reason you can’t make it out to write Eric in the company of fellow anarchists and vegan food, we hope you’ll still find some time to write to him here:
Eric King # 27090045
USP Atlanta
Post Office Box 150160
Atlanta, Georgia 30315
