$5 - $10 donation requested (no one turned away) L.A. band Saber Tooth Tiger will be performing, and Sherman's Mom will be speaking to us and sharing her experience. Lookout for some spoken word artists ... along with other special guests to be announced soon! On 9/4, Sherman Austin started serving a 1-year federal prison sentence for having an "illegal link" on his website. The link in question, which included bomb-making information, was authored by a white boy from Orange County, the son of wealthy Republicans. That boy was never charged with any crime, but Sherman, who is a young, black anarchist in Los Angeles, has been hounded by the FBI and is now doing time for linking to this other kid's website. Read the CounterPunch Article: *10% of all book sales will be donated to Sherman's defense fund.
