NYCABC – We Have Prepared


First, a luxury automobile manufacturer recuperates revolutionary language and aesthetics. Then NYC ABC reclaims the footage in the name of the anarchist project.

NYC – Friday, November 15th – Noise Demo For Jeremy Hammond

NoiseDemoWHAT: Noise demonstration for Jeremy Hammond
WHEN: 6:00pm, Friday, November 15th
WHERE: 150 Park Row – Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), near the northeast corner of Park Row and Pearl Street (directions below)
COST: Free

At 6:00pm on Friday, November 15th, NYC Anarchist Black Cross is organizing a noise demonstration outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in solidarity with Jeremy Hammond. Earlier in the day, Jeremy will be sentenced, having pled guilty to one count of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Jeremy Hammond is a long-time anarchist and hacker from Chicago. He is currently being held prisoner at the MCC in Manhattan for taking part in attacks carried out by Antisec/Anonymous against global intelligence company Stratfor. In these attacks, the website was taken down and defaced and millions of internal e-mails were submitted to Wikileaks.

Regardless of the sentence Jeremy receives, let’s let him know he is not alone. He has the support of revolutionary comrades around the world, particularly in the city that pathetic Lulzsec snitch Hector Xavier Monsegur calls home. This will be a noise demo so please bring noisemakers, banners, and whatever else will help communicate our solidarity.

Directions:
2/3 trains to Fulton Street
4/5/6 trains to City Hall
J/Z trains to Chambers Street

fci_terre_haute_nye_noise_demoOn the noisiest night of the year in New York City, come help us remind folks locked up that they are not alone. NYC Anarchist Black Cross, in response to an international call for noise demonstrations outside of prisons, is asking folks to join us outside of the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan. Come, not to appeal to authority, speak truth to power, or any other contrivance, but rather to stand arm in arm with comrades and show direct solidarity to those on the other side of the wall.

The state, writ large, is targeting anarchists all across the United States and abroad. This will be both protest and celebration. Let’s make it another night in which we show them we’re never scared.

To many it feels like we live in a time like no other– with surveillance and repression at every turn, but also resistance, rebellion, and open revolt. However, this is neither the new golden nor dark age, it is simply another moment in time where we can collectively force conflict with a fundamentally fucked system.

Every day there are revolts of varying scale, many of which never make it to your local news or facebook stream. For those captured in revolt, we heed the call for an international night of noise demonstrations. In the rotten heart of world capital, we honor this call and use it as a reminder– prison is a means of social control to be absolutely destroyed.

We come together in protest and celebration. For those locked up, we bring that celebration. Through the din of revelry and rage, we tie ourselves to those who suffer systematized white supremacy and war against the working class, behind steel bars and safety glass.

May this simple night of noise-bringing carry momentum into a new year of open conflict with the state and capital.
