Call for Week of Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners

Call for International Week of Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners 2020 // 23 – 30 August

June 11, 2020 statement from Eric King

From June 11th

This is my sixth year in prison and has easily been the hardest. After being accused of assaulting a lieutenant on August 17, 2018, I’ve been in the SHU since. The past two years have shown me a wide scope of state brutality: physical beatings and tortures, psychological games like being kept in bare rooms with no contact to the free world, and their legal power – bringing serious new charges that could carry 20 additional years. Resistance is not a game.

June 11, 2020 statement from Keith "Malik" Washington

From June 11

Revolutionary Greetings Comrades! It is hard to craft a message of Solidarity during this time without acknowledging the suffering and loss of life of so many beautiful humyn beings.

By the time June 11th arrives we will reach over One Hundred Thousand Deaths related to the Corona Virus here in Amerika.

Much of my recent journalism and activism has been centered around Covid-19.

We do not represent anyone or speak for all of the module.
