From the Prison Books Collective:
Hello Friends and Comrades,
- Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for July.(11″x17″ PDF, 462KB) Print it out and plaster your community, both in commemoration of these freedom fighters and to advertise locally for a political prisoner letter writing night. Get together with some friends in your town to send birthday cards to these fighters in our struggle. It’s an easy way to help remind them that they aren’t forgotten. If you make one, remember—don’t use anything like white-out, stickers, tape or glitter on it. We also recommend that you put a return name and address and their name and prisoner number on the card, lest the authorities “lose” the envelope and forget where it is going. If you would like to add a birthday or sign up for our poster mailing list (not a listserv, one email per month), or if you would like to contribute in another way to increasing the profile of US political prisoners, email us at email@example.com.
- Do you need help advertising for your local Political Prisoner Letter Writing Night? Are you interested in distributing physical copies of the poster? Write to us and let’s find a way to get physical copies of our poster to you: firstname.lastname@example.org
- What are you doing to support the massive Prisoner General Strike that will be happening this September? Has your union endorsed the call-out? Have you started organizing your solidarity demonstration? Your noise demo outside? Your letter-writing spreading the revolt to other prisons around the country? Have you organized a benefit show to donate much needed organizing funds?
- Be sure to check out the latest Political Prisoner/Prisoner Of War every-other week update (PDF, 315KB) by the NYC-Anarchist Black Cross. There are lots of important updates on many political prisoners. This one includes updates on ex-prisoner Daniel McGowan, Jay Chase, June 11th, and more.
