Please help in any way you can. If you are in NYC, you are also invited to our celebration party on Friday, December 7th! Details can be found here.

Thank you so much – from us and from Daniel – for your support through these very difficult years. Prisoner support does not end when prisoners come home. We hope Daniel will continue to have your support and encouragement, and we wish you all happy holidays!

June 11th roundup

From June 11th

Another great June 11th, thanks to everyone who organized events, wrote letters, and followed their hearts! There were at least forty events planned, including lots of international solidarity. We’re excited about the level of commitment and love everyone showed that day to long-term anarchist prisoners; it makes us feel sure that our friends won’t be forgotten. Still, a whole year will pass before the next June 11th, and in that year Marie, Eric, and everyone else will need financial and emotional support, as well as more profound kinds of solidarity. The spirit of June 11th can be lived every day.

Below is a roundup of events we heard about; if we missed yours please leave a comment.

A New Year’s Update from Political Prisoner Marie Mason

From Support Marie Mason

Hello and Happy New Year!

It’s been a little more than a year and a half since I was transferred to the Admin Unit at Carswell. Many folks have written wondering if I was in the hospital here, and no, I am not. The Admin Unit is just part of a larger compound that has a major medical center for the Bureau of Prisons. This unit is completely separate from both the compound and the medical center. It’s actually more difficult to see most medical staff from here because of the security detail that must accompany any of us if we leave the unit for any reason.

It is a very small world here; only some 20 women are housed here in complete segregation from general population. It is a mixed unit and serves as both death row and as a kind of control unit. We are fortunately not locked down as often as the men’s units are, as policy in the BOP is different for male and female prisoners. (more…)
