More Information about June 11th:

The state stole Eric McDavid and Marie Mason from us in 2006 and 2008 respectively. In the years since their arrests, repression has come to feel less like a specific event and more like an inescapable, ongoing nightmare. Sentenced to 22 years and 20 years, respectively, Marie and Eric remain in cages to this day, and know this nightmare more intimately than most. (more…)

Arianna Staiger Dedicates Song “Ashes” to Her Mother, Marie Mason

From Support Marie Mason

I was on the phone with Marie last night (April 28th) when she mentioned that her daughter, Arianna Staiger, had written a song for her and that it was on Soundcloud.  My computer was handy so I quickly searched for it and sure enough, I found it.  Marie was able to listen to it for the first time ever and though words can’t do that moment justice, it was both beautiful and heart-wrenching.  It was a time when, momentarily Marie was able to pierce through the layers and layers of confinement, separation and restriction  and connect with her daughter.  When the song ended and Marie choked back her tears we talked about the possibility of recording Marie singing over the phone some time soon.  Then, as always, the call was dropped unceremoniously and her time was up.

Be sure to check out the rest of Arianna’s work .
