Join the Toronto Anarchist Black Cross for a night of conversation and letter writing this Sunday.

24 Jan

As always, a vegan meal will be provided and children are welcome!

This month we’ll be talking about the 5e: Carlos, Amelie, and Fallon. They are three comrades currently held in detention in Mexico City. We will talk about the complexities of offering solidarity to prisoners whose case is developing, different ways to support political prisoners, the kinds of letters and messages that can be sent and we will also hear the letters written by Carlos, Amelie, and Fallon.

While the three of them cannot receive letters at the moment, we could work on a public letter of support, other messages that can be passed on to them, and we can talk about how else we can support them.

Please note that if you haven’t had a chance to get one copies of the 2014 Certain Days Calendar and the latest issue of 4strugglemag, they will be available for purchase ($12 for calendars and $5 for 4strugglemag).

The calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal and Toronto, and three political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York State: David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell. The initial project was suggested by Herman, and has been shaped throughout the process by all of our ideas, discussions, and analysis. All of the members of the outside collective are involved in day-to-day organizing work other than the calendar, on issues ranging from refugee and immigrant solidarity to community media to prisoner justice. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer and trans positive position.

Thanks as always to Beit Zatoun for their generous support in letting us host letter nights in their space!
