If NYC ABC were a factory (obviously in which we’ve seized the means of production and offed every goddamned boss in sight), we would be upping our productivity. Between co-hosting an amazing workshop, roadshow and traveling protest by the Bunny Alliance; a talk on the No More Deaths project in Arizona; the fundraising drive for antiracist prisoner John Tucker; and and our upcoming solidarity demo with imprisoned comrades in Mexico, we are busy. Thrown into the mix is our cornerstone– the Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner. This week we will be writing Zolo Azania and Bill Dunne.

For decades, the State of Indiana was trying to kill Zolo, a former Black Panther and community organizer, for allegedly killing a cop during a 1981 armed robbery. However, Zolo’s innocence quickly became clear, on the basis on false evidence and two trials which excluded Black jurors. While in 2009, he finally won his battle to drop the death penalty, he still currently faces the prospect of life in prison for actions that he never committed.

Bill Dunne is an anti-authoritarian sentenced to 90 years for the attempted liberation of an anarchist prisoner in 1979. Dunne and his former co-defendant, Larry Giddings, were accused by police of being “members of a small, heavily armed group of revolutionaries,” associated with the Wellspring Communion. The two successfully freed Artie Ray Dufur, but were arrested after an exchange of fire with police as they were fleeing the scene.

Come find out more about Zolo and Bill, and other political prisoner news, and enjoy a meal with friends (new or old).

BK/NY – Sunday, January 5th – Gateway To Hell Winter Tour Comes To The Base

WHAT: Campaign workshop presented by The Bunny Alliance
WHEN: 6:00pm, Sunday, January 5th
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (Directions below)
COST: Free, but donations are appreciated.

nyc_eventThe Bunny Alliance is expanding the reach of the Gateway to Hell campaign, which is strategically working towards an end to the use of animals in research by stopping the transport of animals to laboratories. For their stop in Brooklyn, NYC ABC is co-hosting a workshop for folks to familiarize themselves with the campaign. It’s happening at The Base.

From The Bunny Alliance:
“We are targeting Delta Air Lines because it is in a strategic partnership with Air France and is its North America representative—and Air France is one of the last commercial airlines to continue the practice of shipping animals to labs. The campaign against Delta Air Lines is to demand that they force Air France to place a permanent ban on the transportation of all animals being shipped to vivisection labs across the world. It is vital that we stop these shipments of animals, and Delta Air Lines is in a position of authority to influence and enforce an Air France ban on shipments of animals to labs.

This demonstrations are part of our larger U.S. tour against Delta Air Lines. Please come out to the demonstrations at the airports, then come meet the organizers and learn more about the campaign and how to get involved at the workshop at The Base co-hosted with the NYC Anarchist Black Cross!”
