2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference fundraising effort

Give Money! Abolish Prisons!Dear friends and comrades!

The 2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference is a mere three months away and we have a long way to go before reaching our fundraising goal!  In an effort to really kickstart the final fundraising push, we are asking for your help in raising $2000 by midnight on June 22nd!  This money will help us cover the cost of the space for the conference.  OR it will help us cover airfare to fly in comrades from across the continent to join us in Denver.  OR it will help us cover the cost of food for the
weekend.  You get the picture…

For the last three years, our international conference has brought together dozens of people from all over North America who are involved in the struggle to support, act in solidarity with, and free our comrades. Rarely is there a time when we are all in the same space—sharing our ideas and energy, strategizing, building networks, and creating new projects to strengthen our struggles and movements. The conference has also been a time for intergenerational, cross-movement dialogue—a time to learn from the past and look to the future.

When you donate to the conference, your money is essentially seed money for the beginning stages of exciting new projects and the revitalization of old ones.  It is a contribution to the future of our movements and to the freedom of our imprisoned comrades.

But just in case you need more of an incentive…  we would like to offer gifts for money donated! (more…)

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster For May 2014 Is Now Available

prisonsareforburning!Hello Friends and Comrades,

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

2) It’s not too late to plan a noise demo outside a prison or jail near you that holds women captive for Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day began not just as a day to honor mothers, but as a day for mothers to express solidarity with one another and against the wars that left widows and orphans impoverished.  Check out last year’s call for noise demos for inspiration.

3)The Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army reprinted shirts from their hit show What Are Prisons For?  and donated them to us to help raise funds. The shirts come in red with black writing. They’re printed on Tultex brand shirts that are 100% sweatshop free. They are $20 , but sign up to become a Prison Books Sustainer and get one for free. To order the shirts donate twenty dollars or more OR sign up to be a sustainer, then email us at  prisonbooks (at) gmail dot com with your size and the address where you would like the shirt sent to.

Every single dollar received goes to mailing packages of books to prisoners. We rely solely on donations for our operating expenses, which primarily include the cost of postage for mailing packages. We are currently spending over $200 a week on postage alone, and are in desperate need of support.

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.

Until Every Cage Is Empty,
