It's holiday time... . time to remember our friends in prison during the
SHAC 7 Days of Christmas!
There's nothing like being a prisoner during the holidays. While we're
stocking up on Tofurkeys with all the trimmings, buying and making gifts,
and spending time with loved ones, the SHAC 7 are behind bars and unable to
participate in any of the festivities we get to enjoy. Let's let them
know that they're not forgotten!
That SHAC 7 Support Committee invites everyone to participate in a festive
SHAC 7 Days of Christmas Celebration. From Monday December 11th through
Sunday December 17th we'll count down with you the days leading into
Christmas week, with daily suggestions of small ways you can help Jake,
Darius, Lauren, Josh, Kevin, and Andy feel a little less lonely this
holiday season. We'll post updates and resources on SHAC7.com to keep
everyone in the loop, and to keep it FUN!
It goes like this... .
December 11- On the first day of Christmas, the SHAC 7 said to me, "It'd be
great to get pictures- nice, inspiring, or funny!"
December 12- On the second day of Christmas, the SHAC 7 said to you, "Would
you please send us a card or two?"
December 13- On the third day of Christmas, the SHAC 7 said to me, "Getting
a book or magazine would make us so happy!"
December 14- On the fourth day of Christmas, the SHAC 7 really meant,
"Please have a donation to our support fund sent!"
December 15- On the first day of Christmas, the SHAC 7 said to me,
"Organize a letter-writing party!"
December 16- On the sixth day of Christmas, the SHAC 7'd like to hear,
"Organize an event, kick injustice in the rear!"
December 17- On the seventh day of Christmas, the SHAC 7 gave a clue, "Keep
fighting and send some good news!"
In layman's terms (for all you non-xmas-song types),
Day 1- Mail the SHAC 7 folks a picture or two to brighten their holiday.
No polaroids, but usually computer prints and normal size photos are
acceptable (tip- write their name and prisoner ID# on the back so they
don't get lost).
Day 2- Buy or make cards for the SHAC 7. Add a note inside and get 'em in
the mail (don't forget not to send anything with glue, stickers, or
Day 3- Check out the wishlists or contact the individual support contacts
for info about how to buy a book or magazine subscription for the SHAC7
Day 4- Donate to the SHAC 7 fund (http://www.shac7.com for details). Try to
collect a few dollars from everyone you know, add in what you can afford,
and send it off to help make things a little less hard for the SHAC 7.
Day 5- Organize a letter-writing party. Consider the upcoming weekend-
easy enough to gather some folks and get letters out in time for Xmas!
Day 6- Get active! Perhaps organize a protest or outreach event in your
area. Nothing helps support the SHAC 7 more than the use of our rights to
speech and demonstration.
Day 7- Don't back down- keep on rolling with support and protest efforts
for the SHAC7, all political prisoners, and especially for the animals.
Update the SHAC7 about interesting and positive things going on around the
world- we are their only good news source!
Your support is the best and only gift the SHAC 7 can receive this year, so
let's make it great!
