Let Freedom Ring
12 April 2009
Judson Memorial Church
Presented by Paulette D'Auteuil, Ana M. Lopez, Matt Meyer, and Ashanti Alston
Drawing from panelists' experiences on both sides of the wall, this workshop will detail key campaigns of the past two decades regarding prisoner rights and political prisoners. Lifelong Puerto Rican independentista Prof. Ana Lopez of CUNY/Hostos will discuss the principles of non-collaboration, especially as they relate to her current work as coordinator of the Hostos Grand Jury Resistance Campaign. D'Auteuil, a leader of the New York Jericho Movement who has worked for decades to free imprisoned American Indian Movement leader Leonard Peltier, will report on current cases of vital importance to the movement. And Meyer, editor of the recently published Let Freedom Ring: A Collection of Documents from the Movements to Free US Political Prisoners, will kick off a participatory discussion on the significance of political prisoners to the overall justice and peace movement.
