BK/NY – Tuesday, July 15th – They Flew Me to Canada, and Boy Are My Arms Tired!

WHAT: Discussion with Dane Rossman and local G20 extraditee prisoner supporters
WHEN: 7:00pm, Tuesday, July 15th
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
COST: Free, but donations are appreciated.

On Tuesday, July 15th, NYC ABC is excited to host our comrade Dane Rossman and the discussion of his experience being extradited to Canada for actions during the 2010 G20 Summit in Toronto. This discussion will also include updates on the remaining G20 extraditee prisonersJoel Bitar and Kevin Chianella, with members of their local support crew.

Dane Rossman is an anarchist living on occupied Tohono O’odham land in Tucson, Arizona.

He’s been involved for several years in anti-colonial, No Borders, and prison/police abolition movements, and will try to situate his experience of incarceration and extradition within that history, with an emphasis on ongoing struggles in Arizona.

Dane hopes to use this opportunity to raise funds for the other G20 extraditees still being held by the Canadian state, so bring cash if you can.

BK/NY – Tuesday, December 20th – Come Support Canadian G-20 Comrade Leah Henderson

What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, December 20th, 2011
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Cost: Free
Hey, everyone. It’s supper time again. Coming off of an amazing Send Love Through the Walls holiday card party for political prisoners and prisoners of war, NYC ABC is carrying momentum into the new year. While joyous over the several comrades who were released from prison this year, we also mourn those who died behind bars. This sober fact reminds us that there is a lot of work to do to get our folks free. And other comrades are facing trials and sentencings that will require still more resolve in the support we provide. One practical means to support prisoners is through the Anarchist Black Cross Federation’s Warchest Program. Another is to come to NYC ABC’s every other week Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner.

This week we are writing to another of the 2010 Toronto G20 “Main Conspiracy” prisoners, Leah Henderson. As we wrote last time, this case shows both the potential strength of revolutionaries working together and the depths of depravity to which the state will go to maintain itself and the economic system to which it remains beholden. For more information, watch this interview and continue to follow up by visiting Conspire to Resist and Guelph Anarchist Black Cross.

If for some insane reason you can’t make it out, but still want to support Leah, you can write to her from home. Check nycabc.wordpress.com for a current address following her sentencing.

BK/NY – Tuesday, December 6th – Come Support Recently Imprisoned Canadian G-20 Comrades

What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, December 6th, 2011
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Cost: Free

While the state continues its coordinated assault on what it deems a threat, global capitalism moves ever closer to the precipice. Here in the states, revolt against capitalism comes from many directions. It’s impossible to imagine these actions outside the context of a history of struggle that includes the imprisonment of our comrades. To that end NYC ABC hosts another of our every-other-week Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinners.

This week we are writing to three Canadian comrades— Peter Hopperton, Adam Lewis, and Erik Lankin, recently imprisoned as the result of alleged organizing against the 2010 G-20 summit in Toronto. This case shows both the potential strength of revolutionaries working together and the depths of depravity to which the state will go to maintain itself and the economic system to which it remains beholden. For more information, read this analysis and continue to follow up by visiting Conspire to Resist and Guelph Anarchist Black Cross.
