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

WHAT: Letter-writing for Tinley Park Five

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:
