ALL HANDS ON DECK! The Prison Books Collective needs your help on Sunday, October 14th.

The Internationalist Prison Books Collective needs your help! The recent move has been a strain on our collective’s resources, and we’re now 4 months underwater on letters and book requests. All hands on deck for a special, fun, backlog clearing workday on Sunday, October 14th, 2012, starting at noon at the collective’s workspace at 621 Hillsborough Rd. in Carrboro. Clear your calendars, stay tuned to the Prison Books website for more details, and plan to be there to help us get back above water and send out books!

Croatan Earth First! will be continually fighting fracking in the Piedmont
