NYC – Tuesday, November 12th – Letter-writing to Mumia Abu-Jamal

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, November 12th, 2013
WHERE: CAGE83A Hester Street (UPSTAIRS) New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free

Mumia Abu-JamalNEWS FLASH! Everyone, stay calm, we have great news. New York City has a new mayor. Yep, all your problems are solved. The state? Capital? Both things of the past. Why? Because some goof positioning himself as “progressive” is steering the ship for a while.

Unfortunately, sarcasm doesn’t necessarily read well on the internet. If it isn’t clear enough, we in NYC ABC harbor no illusions that the new guy is, to paraphrase The Who, not just like the old guy. So until we hear otherwise, we’ll just keep doing what needs to get done– supporting imprisoned comrades. The most common way we do that is with every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinners.

This week we are writing to Mumia Abu-Jamal. We’ll also be passing around postcards to sign for grand jury resister Jerry Koch.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is an African-American writer and journalist, author of six books and hundreds of columns and articles, who has spent the last 30 years on Pennsylvania’s death row and now general population. Mumia was wrongfully convicted and sentenced for the murder of a Philadelphia cop named Daniel Faulkner. The demand for a new trial and freedom is supported by heads of state, nobel laureates, distinguished human rights organizations, scholars, religious leaders, artists, scientists and, as important, millions of folks like you and us.

If for some nutty reason you can’t make it out, but still want to support Mumia, you can write to him at:Mumia Abu-Jamal #AM 8335

BK/NY – Tuesday, January 31st – Letter-Writing to United Freedom Front Prisoners

What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, January 31st, 2012
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
Cost: Free

As we proceed to give you what you need…2012, the year of the black dragon, continues to show revolutionary potential, with folks in the streets from coast to coast feeling collective power and losing their fear of the cops. And as rebellion resonates around the world, we offer love, respect, and solidarity to those recently arrested and those who have been down for years. One practical way this solidarity have been manifested for nearly five years is through our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinners. This week we are writing to two long-term anti-imperialist warriors, serving decades for their commitment to ending the global system of white supremacy.

Jaan Laaman and Tom Manning are anti-imperialist revolutionaries who were active in the United Freedom Front, a clandestine anti-imperialist organization. The UFF carried out targeted bombings of corporate buildings, courthouses and military facilities as well as bank robberies to fund revolutionary projects. Both men were deeply involved in anti South African apartheid organizing. Jaan is currently serving a 53 year sentence, while Tom was sentenced to 80 years.

If for some insane reason you can’t make it out, but still want to support the prisoners, you can write to them at:

Post Office Box 24550
