Hello Friends and Comrades,
Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for August. As always, please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your own.
Last month saw over six thousand prisoners in California go on hunger strike to force an end to the tortuous conditions in the infamous SHU units. Members of our collective participated in two noise demonstrations outside of a local prison and jail in solidarity with the Pelican Bay hunger strikers. You can find out more on the situation at http://prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com or prisonbooks.info
Accused Earth Liberation Front activist Justin Solondz has just been extradited to the United States after spending years in prison in China. Please write him a note to welcome him back to the US since he probably didn’t get much mail in China.
Please keep in mind that Justin is pre-trial and that the crimes with which is charged are all mere allegations.
