Illustrated Guide Version 14.3 Uploaded!

We’ve finished the latest version of the NYC ABCIllustrated Guide to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War” and it’s available for viewing (and download) by clicking on the tab at the top of this page. This update includes updated mini-bios, photos, and address changes for several prisoners. Unfortunately, we are adding prisoners to the guide this month–Yellow Finch Treesit eco-defense activists Wren and Acre. We are thankful to remove (take a deep breath) Carmen Trotta, Martha Hennessy, & Stephen Kelly (Kings Bay Plowshares 7); Jaan Laaman; Loren Reed; Skelly (Cleveland 4); and Water Protector Steve Martinez.

Tuesday, June 1st – Letter Writing for June 11th Prisoners

31 May 2021 Comments off

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday June 1st, 2021
WHERE: your home (or wherever you happen to be)
COST: Free

While most folks are firing up the grill this weekend likely in celebration of a day off from their shitty jobs rather than to memorialize anything, we turn our thoughts to those who were captured or died fighting for the movement(s). This week NYC ABC and Page One Collective respond to the June 11th call for solidarity with long term anarchist political prisoners, while recognizing the history of this day by including earth and animal liberation prisoners. In addition to encouraging people to write to those captured by the state, we hold space for those we have lost in recent decades from those movements.

This week we encourage folks to write to both anarchist and earth liberation prisoners:

Marius Mason is an anarchist, environmental, and animal rights prisoner. In March 2008, he was arrested by federal authorities for charges related to two acts of property destruction that occurred in 1999 and 2000 – damaging an office connected to GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) research, and destroying a piece of logging equipment. No one was injured in either act. He faced a life sentence before accepting a plea bargain in September 2008. More information at supportmariusmason.org

Eric King was indicted in May 2019 by a grand jury in the District Court of Colorado for a new federal felony charge of Assaulting a Federal Official. This charge is based on what the government says happened during the interview in the Florence storage room with a Lieutenant. Eric now faces up to 20 additional years in federal prison and is fighting this charge while still in the custody of his accusers. Eric is pre-trial, do not mention his current charges. **Eric is currently on mail ban and unable to receive letters, however he can receive books. See his book wish list here: tiny.cc/EK_Books and more information at supportericking.org

Yellow Finch tree-sitters Opponents of the Mountain Valley Pipeline established a series of tree-sits in resistance to inevitable environmental hard such a project would create. Tree-sitters remain anonymous and their identities have only been learned upon extraction and arrest. Many folks have taken to the tree-sits since first erected in late 2018. As of this writing, only two have been extracted, identified, and arrested. More information at itsgoingdown.org/author/appalachians-against-pipelines
