New Greeting Card From Malik Smith (Virgin Island 5)

Malik Smith_New Year Greeting_2014For over five years, NYC ABC has joined forces with the anti-imperialist affinity group Resistance in Brooklyn to host “Send Love Through the Walls,” a card-making party for the political prisoners we support. The handmade cards go out in mid-December and we get replies throughout the year. We consistently hear that this is an event prisoners anticipate and occasionally get handmade cards in return. Such is the case with the card we received from Virgin Island 5 prisoner Malik Smith. For more information on Malik and his co-defendants, check out the NYC ABC “Illustrated Guide to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War.”

Greeting from Marie Mason

Marie_CardWe recently received a great handmade card from Earth Liberation Front prisoner Marie Mason. Toward the end of her note, she thanks us for our patience in maintaining correspondence. The thanks is likely due to the persistent problem Marie has with receiving and sending mail. Though ostensibly held in a Federal Medical Center (FMC), Marie is actually in a restrictive unit within the FMC that greatly limits her communication with the outside world.

You can support Marie by joining the campaign to move her from FMC Carswell to a prison where she can be in general population. Check for details.

Dear folks at NYC ABC,
Hope this simple ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’ gets to you ok (maybe post cards are better, maybe not). Thanks you so much for your support and well wishes. I was glad to get the newsletter last week, to be inspired and informed by Mumia is always a gift. Your project means so much to me and so many others— and I especially want to thank you for your patience in keeping in touch.

Stay strong, be well, until all are free!
