What’s less surprising, that a cop stole a dead man’s credit card to buy a diamond ring or that chimpanzees can cook? You’re right, it’s a draw. Also not surprising is that it’s again time for NYC ABC’s every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner (the acronym, PPLWD, just rolls off the tongue). This week, in honor of the call for a June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason, Eric McDavid, and long-term eco and anarchist prisoners, we will be sending letters to several imprisoned comrades. Thankfully this year, we won’t be sending a letter to Eric, who has been released.

Three days later, join us, with members of Marius Mason’s local support crew, for a rousing night of Punk Rock Karaoke.

We’ll be joined by a member of Marius’ local support crew and will have information about the other prisoners. If you don’t already know about the folks to whom we are writing, make sure to check out our Illustrated Guide To Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War.

NYC – 7:00pm, Friday, June 12th – Punk Rock Karaoke for Marius Mason and Longterm Anarchist Political Prisoners!

punkrockkaraokeWHAT: Punk Rock Karaoke
WHEN: 7:00pm, Friday, June 12th
WHERE: ABC No Rio156 Rivington Street New York, New York 10002
COST: $5-20, sliding scale (it’s a benefit y’all).

Every year in New York City, founding members of Marius Mason‘s support group and NYC Anarchist Black Cross have hosted an event for the Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason, Eric McDavid, and All Longterm Anarchist Prisoners, and this year Punk Rock Karaoke NORTHEAST is getting in on the action!

We once again will storm the venerable punk halls of ABC No Rio for a night of punk rock sing-a-longs! All money raised will benefit Marius Mason and Eric McDavid.

This event is BYOB. We will be selling set-ups (cups, ice, and mixers) so all you have to do is bring a bottle — we’ll handle the rest. We will also be selling incredible vegan baked goods — sweet and savory.

Tell your friends and come ready to have an awesome time!

More info on the benefit:
Marius Mason is serving a 22-year sentence for acts of environmentally motivated property destruction and is fighting to gain access to gender-affirming health care after announcing his transition last year.

Eric McDavid was originally sentenced to almost 20 years in prison after being entrapped by an agent provocateur, and after a surprise ruling by the federal courts, was released this year after almost a decade of incarceration. Building a new life for himself is the next phase of struggle for Eric, and we are committed to continuing our solidarity with him post-release.

Short talks from:
Lawyers who represent Marius Mason
Members of his support group
Former political prisoners on what support means to people on the inside

NYC – Tuesday, June 5th – Letter-writing in a NEW LOCATION for Marie Mason and Eric McDavid

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, June 5, 2012
WHERE: CAGE83 Hester Street New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free

We’re back! For most, canceling an event, that happens every other week, is probably of no consequence, but we strive to maintain consistency. And so, here we are again, bringing supper and information to help prisoners we support. Now at a new location! Thanks to the folks at CAGE for providing a new home.

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. If you don’t already know about either Eric or Marie, they are the two folks targeted under the Green Scare serving the longest sentences, around twenty years each. While on the topic, don’t forget that, along with Chicago’s Punk Rock Karaoke, we’re hosting a June 11th benefit here in NYC. The facebook event is at https://www.facebook.com/events/231185566992011

If, for some crazy reason, you can’t join us, please write to Marie and Eric from home:
