Illustrated Guide Version 10 Now Uploaded!

We’ve finished the latest version of the NYC ABCIllustrated Guide to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War” and it’s available for viewing (and download) by clicking on the tab at the top of this page. This update includes updated mini-bios, photos, and address changes for several prisoners as well as removing the remaining Cuban Five prisoners (PRISONER EXCHANGE!), Norberto González Claudio (TIME SERVED!), George Horton (TIME SERVED!), Eric McDavid (TIME SERVED!), and Tsutomu Shirosaki (TIME SERVED!). Sadly, we must also remove Phil Africa, who recently died in prison. R.I.P., Phil– you will not be forgotten.

Eric_Marie_2014With wild asses getting wild against the state in Brazil and Spain, it looks like we will be heading into a very hot summer. It’s only through working together to pull this motherfucker down that we’re getting anywhere, and it’s time again to support the folks who have tried to do just that. The simple way NYC ABC does that is through every-other-week letter-writing dinners.

This week, in honor of the call for a June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid, we will be sending letters to them. And the next night, join us as we co-host a multimedia extravaganza with members of Marie Mason’s local support crew. If you don’t already know about either Eric or Marie, they are the two folks targeted under the Green Scare who face the longest sentences, around twenty years each.

If, for some crazy reason, you can’t join us, please write to Eric and Marie (or send her a book) from home:

NYC – Tuesday, March 18th – Card-signing for Women’s History Month

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

COST: Free
women 2014NYC ABC‘s disdain for cops is storied, but did you know we harbor the same vitriol for landlords? Oh, sure. They’re in the same category as bosses, and the only boss we listen to is named Springsteen. So it comes as no surprise when a negligent landlord (it almost sounds redundant, no?) fails to tend to his building, people die. And that’s not hyperbole. Of course landlords and bosses are but two of the functionaries that keep us oppressed under the state and capitalism. And when folks have the audacity to fight back? Well, that’s when the state is waiting with cages for the rebels. We in NYC ABC stand in support of such imprisoned comrades. The most frequent way we do that is through our every-other-week letter-writing dinners.  And in this month of women’s history, we offer our solidarity to female rebels.

Come find out more about Debbie, Janet, and Janine Africa, Chelsea Manning, Marie Mason, Rev. Joy Powell, and Rebecca Rubin. We’ll also have other political prisoner news, so come enjoy a meal with friends (new or old).

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 movemarie.com for details.

From: Marie Mason #04672-061
FMC Carswell

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!

NYC – Tuesday, October 29th – Come to a Green Scare(y) Halloween Card-Writing + Letter-Writing For Move Marie

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
WHERE: CAGE83A Hester Street (UPSTAIRS) New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free

Free Them All!With grand jury resistance here in NYC, Feds sneaking around in Southern California, and other campaigns & projects across the country, anarchists have their hands full. The work that’s happening on these projects is, in many ways, inspiring. With that inspiration, there are plenty of reasons to become directly involved. It is in the spirit of direct involvement (and the magick of Halloween) that we host another Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner. And what could be more ghoulish than the Green Scare?

Since the early 1980s, public relations hacks have been working to reify the term “eco-terrorism.” By 2004, they became successful and a phrase that a decade earlier had no real meaning was now defined by the United States government and used to introduce legislation. Now we have comrades serving decades for economic sabotage and allegations of thought crime. With several recent animal liberation actions, and Rebecca Rubin facing 5 to seven and a half years, it is clear that Earth and animal liberationists are both still active and still in the cross-hairs of the feds. Join us in letting them know they are not forgotten.

We are also taking this letter-writing night to answer the call to organize an event to get letters on behalf of Marie Mason, in an effort to get her moved from the isolation unit in FMC Carswell, where she is currently imprisoned. For more information on the campaign, visit movemarie.com

National Call-In Day to Move Marie Mason

movemariephonein

Environmental activist and community organizer Marie Mason is serving the longest sentence ever (22 years) for environmentally motivated property destruction. In 2010 she was transferred to the notorious high security prison FMC Carswell.

Now we’re mobilizing to get her moved.

On Monday, October 21st, people across the country and world will keep the Bureau of Prisons office ringing off the hook demanding she be moved. We need your help to make the 21st the day we forced the BOP to take notice.

There are multiple ways to join in on the action: Read more…
