BK/NY – Tuesday, October 24th – Come to a Green Scare(y) Halloween Card-Writing

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, October 24th, 2017
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)

NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

Free Them All!In light of the coming holiday, NYC ABC is sending Halloween cards to targets of the Green Scare as part of our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinners. We will also have hot off the presses copies of the 2018 Certain Days: Freedom For Political Prisoners calendars available. The theme of this year’s calendar is Awakening Resistance.

Since the early 1980s, public relations hacks have been working to reify the term “eco-terrorism.” By 2004, they became successful and a phrase that a decade earlier had no real meaning was now defined by the United States government and used to introduce legislation. In the face of global ecologic destruction and animal torture, those who try to end the suffering are the ones labeled terrorists. Join us in letting the ones who have ultimately been captured know that they have not been forgotten. Read more…

BK/NY – Tuesday, October 25th – Come to a Green Scare(y) Halloween Card-Writing

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, October 25th, 2016
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)

NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

Free Them All!It is 2016 and the US government’s war on environmental activists and animal liberationists is still being waged. NYC ABC and Sacramento Prisoner Support have responded with project FANG, a travel fund for earth and animal liberation prisoners.

With Tyler Lang and Kevin Olliff recently moved to halfway houses, the imprisonment of Joseph Buddenberg, and the impending trial of Nicole Kissane, we are reminded of the backwards and arbitrary logic the State uses to deem who are “terrorists.” The truth is, those in power will always villainize those who seek to liberate and valorize those who seek to carry out real destruction.

NYC – Tuesday, October 28th – Come to a Green Scare(y) Halloween Card-Writing

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, October 28th, 2014
WHERE: CAGE – 83A Hester Street (UPSTAIRS) New York, New York 10002 (directions below)
COST: Free

Free Them All!Well, here we are, saddened. Another space in NYC is closing. We’ve been fortunate to call CAGE home to our every-other-week Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinners for over two years. So we thank them for providing us space to support political prisoners and hope they find a new home soon.

In light of the coming holiday, we are sending Halloween cards to targets of the Green Scare.

Since the early 1980s, public relations hacks have been working to reify the term “eco-terrorism.” By 2004, they became successful and a phrase that a decade earlier had no real meaning was now defined by the United States government and used to introduce legislation. Now we have comrades serving decades for economic sabotage and allegations of thought crime. With several recent animal liberation actions, and Tyler Lang & Kevin Olliff being tried as terrorists, it is clear that Earth and animal liberationists are both still active and still in the cross-hairs of the feds. Join us in letting them know they are not forgotten.

NYC – Tuesday, September 2nd – Letter-writing to Walter Bond

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner

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
