In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change.

In the month of July, Sean Swain (the alleged leader of the allegedly anarchist alleged prison gang the Army of the 12 Monkeys) goes up for a security level review. This gives him the opportunity to drop from level 4B to 4A and get out of solitary confinement. These are some guidelines for anyone who feels moved to call, write, or e-mail his Case Manager Scott Nowak to encourage his lowered status:
Case Manager, D-Block
Ohio State Penitentiary
878 Coitville-Hubbard Rd

Today July 2nd 2014, the compañeros were sentenced in absence as they refused to assist the judicial show, and had their disposition under “teleconference” with families and compañeros.

The Carrboro Really Really Free Market is celebrating its ten-year anniversary with a massive festival! You’re invited for a whole weekend of really really free activities. Come demonstrate the life you would prefer to capitalism. Rather than simply opposing what exists, reactively, we dare you to show that your alternative to competition and obedience is more nourishing, more exciting, and more fulfilling than anything the market can offer.

We would like to let everyone know that Marius Jacob Mason will no longer be using the name Marie, and will be using male pronouns. We hope that you will all join us in supporting Marius through this transition, which will no doubt be extra challenging within the prison system. Until his name is legally changed, any mail sent to Marius in prison will still need to be addressed to ‘Marie Mason’ on the envelope. This goes for donations also. Please write to Marius at this time! Receiving supportive and friendly mail makes a world of difference.

Don't worry, we understand. Sparkly lights in the sky are hard to beat. But one thing definitely beats that any day—liberating our political prisoners! Don't feel bad about secretly enjoying a celebration of this oppressive imperialist state...instead, help support efforts to defend and free political prisoners trapped in their imperialist prisons! The 2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference desperately needs funds to pay for the space, food for participants, and travel funds for comrades (particularly former prisoners) who wouldn't be able to attend without assistance. You can donate online at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/ek5vc/ab/f3E260. If you would like to send a check or money order, rather than using the link below, contact us at naabcconference[at]riseup[dot]net to find out where to send it.
