NYC Anarchist Book Fair 2010
Staying Strong throughout Political Imprisonment and Movement Repression
17 April 2010
Join members of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement Political Prisoner Committee and the Anarchist Black Cross Federation for a presentation and discussion on what every anarchist should know about Political Prisoner and Prisoner of War support as well as current repressive measures against individual anarchists and the movement as a whole. The presentation will cover several NY-held PPs/POWs and how to support them as well as grand jury resistance.
The NYC chapter of the Anarchist Black Cross Federation (ABCF) provides reliable support to political prisoners and prisoners of war while also agitating and organizing for increased strategic and collaborative efforts on the part of activists, social movements, and concerned people toward freeing movement prisoners. We provide more intensive support to several prisoners, primarily NY-held prisoners; coordinate a national Anarchist Defense Fund; and host Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinners every other Tuesday. See nycabc.wordpress.com for more information.
The Political Prisoner Committee of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement (MXGM) does support work for Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War, particularly those held captive in New York State. We organize efforts to support their release and work to educate our ourselves and our community about their importance as well as what it actually means to be a Political Prisoner and/or a Prisoner of War. We realize that our liberation is bound with those who've fought for us to be where we're at today and are still behind bars because of it. We have a clear understanding that we won't be free until they all are free. *Free 'em All!
