walter_bondOkay, so it’s almost over. First it’s Labor Day, then Running Down the Walls, and the next thing you know it’s autumn. We’re pretty sure we know calendars and that’s how they work– Independence Day [sic], Labor Day, Running Down the Walls, end of summer. You can use that in planning for the remainder of your year. “Is it Running Down the Walls already? I swear it comes earlier and earlier every year. I’d better start stacking firewood and get my rake ready.” And so we set our gaze on fall. Of course, in NYC ABC all that changing weather means is a different menu at our every-other-week letter-writing dinners. And before we can get to Running Down the Walls 2014, we have another dinner to serve. This week we are focusing on Walter Bond. We’re very lucky to have a guest speaker who will present the history and recent updates of Walter.

Walter Bond is an imprisoned Animal Liberation Front operative who in the Summer of 2010 was arrested for the A.L.F. Lone Wolf arsons of the Sheepskin Factory in Denver, Colorado, the Tandy Leather Factory in Salt Lake City, Utah and Tiburon Restaurant in Sandy, Utah.

If for some bizarre reason you can’t make it to dinner, please write to Walter (and/or send him a book) from home. His address is:

Walter Bond #37096-013
USP Marion – CMU
Post Office Box 1000
Marion, Illinois 62959

NYC – Tuesday, May 13th – Freedom Month Solidarity with Puerto Rican Political Prisoners

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, May 13th, 2014
WHERE: CAGE83A Hester Street (UPSTAIRS) New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free
oscar_norbertoWith the United States acting as judge, jury, and executioner abroad, we should be amazed that none of our political prisoners are captured and not just assassinated (though plenty have been). This disgusting, sinking ship is determined to take the whole world with it, whether it’s one person, one community, or one nation at a time. And while the United States may be biding its time regarding the conflict in Ukraine, we are no closer to collective, total liberation. Until we are free, we continue to revolt and support those around us who have done the same.

In solidarity with Freedom Month, NYC ABC will be dedicating its May 13th Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner to the Puerto Rican political prisoners. We will have a special guest speaker, Ben Ramos from ProLibertad, so this event is not to be missed.

Historically, the United States government has taken an (ethically and militarily) offensive position in regards to Puerto Rican political prisoners. Within the last couple of years, the FBI arrested Norberto Claudio González on charges dating back to 1983. On the same day as Norberto’s arrest, Oscar López Rivera was denied parole on the 30th anniversary of his arrest. The federal government clearly resents to successes of the movement to free Puerto Rico and is patient enough to wait 28 years to make an arrest. This should serve as a lesson to revolutionaries of all stripes– stay active, stay safe, and know that you must watch your back forever.

As we near the third anniversary of Norberto’s arrest, his mail is being denied. And so, we answer the call to flood the prison with mail to let them know we are watching and won’t stand for this form of mistreatment.

On May 29th, a picket is being organized to protest the 33rd anniversary of Oscar López Rivera’s arrest.

If for some nutty reason you can’t make it out, but still want to support Norberto and Oscar, you can write to them at:
