The NYC Anarchist Black Cross collective is back at it, serving up amazing food and knowledge about our folks behind bars.

We’ll provide brief background and recent updates on Leah Henderson, Mandy Hiscocks, Patreese Johnson, CeCe McDonald, and Rev. Joy Powell.

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.
