Marius Transferred to the SHU! Please Write Him a Letter!

mm-4-21-2015

From Free Marius Mason

On June 16th, we received notification from Marius that he has been transferred to the SHU—or Special Housing Unit, also known as solitary confinement—for, we believe, 30 days as a result of an alleged violation of prison disciplinary rules. We still do not know the basis of these allegations, but we believe they involve a violation of his right to counsel. At this point, Marius does not have all of his property in the SHU, and his normal phone privileges and all e-mail privileges have been suspended. Marius’s lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, has not yet received the incident report, but based on what she has has heard from prison officials, she believes the disciplinary action to be unjust.

Marius is currently in good spirits, but solitary confinement is a terrible and dispiriting form of punishment. Marius can still send and receive letters, so please show your support and solidarity by dropping him a line!

Please be aware that any mail sent to Marius will be under even more scrutiny than it was before, so we ask you to be cautious in writing to him about his situation. Also, mail addressed to ‘Marius Mason’ has been getting rejected, so we ask you to use the following address in your correspondence:

M Mason #04672-061

P.O. Box 27137

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster For September 2014 Is Now Available

birthday cakeHello Friends and Comrades,

1) Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for September. As always, please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your own.

2) A bail and legal fund has been established to support the 43 or so people who have been arrested during the initial anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. Please spread the word widely and help get some money together to get these people out.

All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future. Thank you.

For more information on what’s been going on in Ferguson you can check out these articles on our blog.

3) No, for real, come celebrate the Ten-Year Anniversary of the Carrboro Really Really Free Market! A wild party! 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. We’re hoping comrades from around the world will join us in making this something to remember! (more…)

Rebecca Rubin Has Been Transferred

rebecca rubinRebecca Rubin has been transferred again. Please send Rebecca Rubin a letter or note of encouragement, being transferred can be quite jarring and it’s good for her to hear that people are keeping up with her. Rebecca was recently sentenced 5 years for her participation in multiple Earth Liberation Front actions that occurred between 1996 and 2001.

Blog editor’s note: Don’t forget Jeremy’s Birthday is this month!

From Free Jeremy Hammond

As many of you may know, Jeremy has been on a bit of a journey recently being transferred from prison to prison on his way to the one where he will serve the remainder of his sentence.

We are very relieved to announce that he has finally reached that prison – FCI Manchester in Kentucky.

While it is not as close to Chicago as his family and friends may have liked, it is medium security, and Jeremy is satisfied with the choice.

For now, the best thing you can do is write him. His new address is:

Jeremy Hammond #18729-424
FCI Manchester
Federal Correctional Institution
P.O. Box 4000
Manchester, KY 40962

You can also once again send him books from his Amazon wishlist. Jeremy is a avid reader and books help him to fill a lot of the “down” time in prison. (more…)

Sean has been transferred!

sean-swainFrom SeanSwain.org

After many months of waiting in awful conditions in the segregation unit at Mansfield, Sean has been transferred to the Ohio State Penitentiary in Youngstown, Ohio.

Please take a minute to write to Sean, or to send him a book or zine. Getting transferred is really hard on people in prison, even if we hope that his conditions will be slightly better at O.S.P. than in the segregation unit at MANCI. He would love to hear from friends and supporters to boost his spirits while he adjusts to new conditions of confinement.

Also, Sean has not been allowed access to books for the last year, and receiving books right now would be a real relief.

Seriously, fuck the State and every person who makes a penny off keeping the people we love in cages.

Sean’s new address is:

Sean Swain 243-205
Ohio State Penitentiary
878 Coitsville-Hubbard Rd.
Youngstown, OH 44505

Rebecca Rubin Has Been Moved Again

She is facing charges of arson and conspiracy for actions that occurred between 1996 and 2001.

Jerry Koch transfered to MCC

jerrysketch-webFrom NYC Anarchist Black Cross

According to the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), and confirmed by the Support Jerry Committee, grand jury resister Jerry Koch has been transferred from the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn to the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Manhattan. Please take time to write to Jerry. If you’ve already written to him, the letter should eventually get to him, but it’s hard to know when. Given this fact, it’s best to just write another letter. The worse that happens is Jerry gets two letters from you.

Write to Jerry at:
Gerald Koch #68631-054
