NYC – Tuesday, July 31st – Letter-writing for the Tinley Park Five

WHAT: Letter-writing for Tinley Park Five
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, July 31, 2012
WHERECAGE – 83A Hester Street New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free
While it’s no grand revelation that all cops are bastards, they’ve really been determined to convince us over the last couple of weeks. Between the murder and subsequent uprising in Anaheim, California and the raids on comrades’ houses in Olympia & Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, cops have re-upped their public profiles as defenders of capital & the state and enemies of the poor & working class. As a challenge to a slightly different form of fascism, a call has been made for Tuesday, July 31st to serve as an international day of anti-fascist actions in solidarity with the Tinley Park Five. NYC Anarchist Black Cross is answering the call with our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner. This week we will be writing to the Five.

On Saturday, May 19th a group of 30 anti-fascists descended upon Ashford House restaurant in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park where the 5th annual White Nationalist Economic Summit and Illinois White Nationalist Meet-and-Greet was taking place. The White Nationalists were targeted inside the restaurant and physically attacked, causing several injuries and completely shutting down their meeting.

Not long after the attack, five men– Alex Stuck, Cody, Dylan, and Jason Sutherlin (the three are brothers), and John Tucker were pulled over and arrested. The Five maintain their innocence.

PLEASE REMEMBER: The Tinley Park Five are pre-trial. Take care with what you write and do not talk about the case.

If you can’t make it to dinner, please take the time to write the Tinley Park Five at:

NYC – Tuesday, July 17th – Letter-writing for alleged Anonymous hacker Jeremy Hammond

WHAT: Letter-writing for alleged Anonymous hacker Jeremy Hammond
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, July 17, 2012
WHERECAGE – 83A Hester Street New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free

We in NYC ABC have had a hell of a week, which ended with a noise demonstration outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in downtown Manhattan. It’s not typical for us to get the opportunity to organize such a demonstration knowing a political prisoner is within earshot and will likely both see and hear it. So we were glad when 60 or so folks showed up, noisemakers in tow, to support Jeremy Hammond on the night of Friday the 13th. Jeremy has a court date on July 23rd. To keep his spirits high until then, we are sending him letters at our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner.

Jeremy Hammond is a long-time anarchist and hacker from Chicago. He is currently being held prisoner at the MCC in Manhattan, awaiting trial for allegedly taking part in attacks carried out by Antisec/Anonymous against global intelligence company Stratfor. In these attacks, the website was taken down and defaced, millions of internal e-mails were submitted to Wikileaks, and at least $700,000 in fraudulent charges were made to credit cards stored on the servers.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Jeremy is pre-trial. Take care with what you write and do not talk about the case.

If you can’t make it to dinner, please take the time to write Jeremy at:
