A film screening to benefit Jeff "Free" Luers, eco-defence prisoner.
Featuring the films:
Dave Gilbert : A Lifetime of Struggle
An interview with one of the longest held anti-imperialist political prisoners in the world. He is currently serving a seventy five year sentence after being convicted on a conspiracy charge for his participation in a Brinks truck hold-up aiming to raise funds for the Black Liberation Army in 1981. His imprisonment occurred after a decade of clandestine struggle as part of the Weatherman Underground.
Documentary on Guadalajarais resistance and repression in Guadalajara during the 3rd Latin American, Caribbean, and European Summit on May 28, 2004. 4 people are still in jail following those events.
Documentary on Jeff "Free" Luers
A longtime forest defender who was sentenced to more than 22 years in prison for burning three Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) at a car dealership in Eugene, Oregon, and on attempted arson charges. Jeff set fire to SUVs to call attention to climate change and to protest oil wars and environmental destruction. Despite the fact that this action hurt no one, caused only $40,000 in damages and the cars were later resold, Jeff was sent to prison for a sentence considerably longer than those convicted of murder, kidnapping and rape in Oregon state. Jeff is an anarchist political prisoner and continues to write and agitate for his release while imprisoned at Oregon State Penetentiary. His appeal was filed in January 2002. Legal costs for Jeff’s appeals will be in the tens of thousands of dollars and help is greatly needed. Learn more online at freefreenow.org.
Sliding Scale admission. All proceeds collected at the door will go toward Jeff's legal defense.
