quarter_sheet_templateIn what many prisoners have told us is their favorite event of the year, Resistance in Brooklyn and NYC Anarchist Black Cross again join forces to bring you the annual holiday card-writing party for U.S. held political prisoners, prisoners of war, and prisoners of conscience. This event is always a lot of fun, the food outstanding, the camaraderie lively, and the handmade cards flat out amazing. This year will be no different. So plan to bring your friends, your creativity, and a healthy appetite. We’ll have updates on the pp/pow campaigns as well as paints, markers, crayons, and envelopes. We will also be holding a raffle to support soon to be released, 87 year old Mohaman Koti.

If you’ve been looking for a place to purchase the “Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar,” NYC ABC will have them for sale at the event. The calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal and Toronto, and three political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York State: David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell. The proceeds from Certain Days 2015 will be divided among The New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners, Addameer, and 4strugglemag. For more information, be sure to visit

Getting to 263 Eastern Parkway is simple:
From the 2/3/4/5 or Franklin Avenue Shuttle:

Franklin Avenue Stop: Walk west on Eastern Parkway (away from Franklin Avenue, toward Classon Avenue). We’re about half a block down on the north side of the street. When you go into the building, take the elevator to your left.

NYC Supporters– Solidarity Raffle for Marie Mason & Eric McDavid Has Been Extended!

The Rooftop BBQ and Raffle for the June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid was a great success– despite the rainy and windy conditions!  However, the inclement weather did prevent quite a few people from participating, so the organizers decided to postpone the raffle drawing to July 11th!  This means that you still have a couple of more weeks to buy tickets that will benefit two longterm anarchist Green Scare prisoners that are each serving over 20 years in federal prison AND the chance to win a great prize while you do so!

Raffle tickets are ON SALE NOW!

Available for purchase online at via Paypal. Raffle ticket confirmation numbers will be sent to your e-mail address upon payment. Online tickets will only be sold in threes.
