Hello Friends and Comrades,

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

2) 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!

A clash of utopias! Come demonstrate the life you would prefer to capitalism. Set up a booth, offer a workshop, put on a performance, screen a film, carry out some dramatic action, obtain and distribute some resource no one could imagine being free. We want to see a wide range of utopian visions and ungovernable desires manifested. Rather than simply opposing what exists, reactively, we dare you to demonstrate that your alternative to competition and obedience is more nourishing, more exciting, and more fulfilling than anything the market can offer.

More info here. See you in October! (more…)

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster For June 2014 Is Now Available

cupcake@Hello Friends and Comrades,

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

2) Seven prisoners at Polk CI in Butner, NC have started a hunger strike to protest their conditions. According to prisoners in the facility, additional men have been joining the strike since that first day. The strike was initiated in part by prisoners who were transferred out of Central Prison, following a class action lawsuit against the facility for abuse by guards in various “blind spots” around Unit One. That lawsuit has already forced the administration’s hand in videotaping any cell extractions by guards.  You can read their demands here.

Please support these men by sending mail and making phone calls to:

Frank Perry, Secretary of the Division of Prisons
4201 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC  27699
or Call at
(919) 838-4000

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster For April 2014 Is Now Available

happy_birthday_black_n_redHello Friends and Comrades,

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

2) Our hearts are overflowing with joy that Eddie Conway is not included in this April’s Birthday Poster. Eddie was freed at the beginning of march. You can check out this interview he did on the day after his release.

3) A new zine, Unforgiving and Inconsolable: Durham Against the Police is now available for download and printing. The zine compiles writings released in the heat of battle over the last few months, as three separate marches protesting the police detention and murder of Chuy Huerta brought the town’s distrust and anger with its police to the fore. New relationships were made while new ground was broken, which will hopefully continue as people continue to assemble and reflect upon the past few months.

4) Be sure to check out the latest Political Prisoner/Prisoner Of War every-other week update by the  NYC-Anarchist Black Cross. There are lots of important updates on many political prisoners.

This Wednesday: Political Prisoner Letter Writing Night!

micatsWednesday, February 12th
@ 7pm
@ Internationalist Books
405 W. Franklin St. in Chapel Hill

The Internationalist Prison Books Collective brings you this month’s Political Prisoner Letter Writing Night!

Write letters and birthday cards to political prisoners whose birthdays fall during the month of February.

Bring snacks and money to help with postage!

Like every month, we’ll also have addresses and updates to write to recently incarcerated or moved political prisoners as well as those with birthdays. This month, we’ll be writing to Vicci, Lisa and Barb – the three brave MI CATS activists just convicted for their actions defending their communities against Enbridge’s tar sands pipeline. Learn more at http://www.michigancats.org/free-the-felines.

Letter writing is an easy way to let these people know they aren’t forgotten. If you can’t make it to the letter writing night then please send a birthday card from home.
