Certain Days: 2007 Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar!

November 11, 2006

Order online at!

The calendar features 42 pages of stunning artwork and insightful analysis. This essential resource is packed with information, and makes a meaningful gift – the gift of political education for family and friends, and the gift of concrete financial support for our social justice movements.

This year¹s calendar is focused on the theme of immigration, and features work by many political prisoners and their supporters, including cover artist Tom Manning, David Gilbert, Herman Bell, Alvaro Hernandez, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Jeffrey “Free” Luers, the MOVE 9, the Cuban 5, Gord Hill, GoreB, Just Seeds, and more.

As always, the calendar is a fundraiser. This year¹s proceeds will benefit the New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners, No One Is Illegal-Kingston, and Addameer, a Palestinian prisoner solidarity group.

The calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organisers in Montreal, and three Political Prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York state: Herman Bell, David Gilbert and Robert Seth Hayes. 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 organising 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.

Today’s anti-war, anti-globalisation, and anti-colonial movements are rooted in the history of earlier struggles for justice, including the mass movements of the 60s and 70s. Many of the Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War featured in this calendar were organisers during that period: members of the Black Panther Party, or the American Indian Movement; Puerto Ricans fighting for their homeland, or white anti-racist allies working in solidarity with oppressed peoples. Some of them have been in prison SINCE THAT TIME -¬ 30 years or more. Yet these prisoners are not relics of past movements; they are still active in their political work, and despite the hardships of organising in prison, they continue to organise for justice in the
present day, justice behind bars and justice on the streets. This calendar is our tribute to them.

Free all Political Prisoners!
Free all Prisoners of War!
