Save the Date -- Friday, Dec. 14th 7pm; Station 40 -- Plan to come out with some friends to support the Bay View Prisoner's Subscription Fund!

A great opportunity to support the 'Bay View Prisoner's Subscription Fund' on December 14th and to give wider exposure, appreciation, and support to the editors, writers, and publisher of the Bay View Newspaper.

No other Bay Area community newspaper seriously and consistently digs, unearths, and denounces the state's local, national, and international injustices like the bay view newspaper. Recently the paper has steeped exposure on Gary King Jr's murder by Oakland police officer Patrick Gonzales; the obstruction of justice by the OPD of oakland journalist Chauncey Bailey; and an expanded level of legalized racism and forced migration -- the San Francisco mayor's use of "gang injuctions" to make a barrier to protest and opposition to development projects in Bay View Hunter's Point, the Mission, and Western Addition.

The occasion for this political event / fundraiser:

In the past two months, the Bay View Newspaper has received over 200 subscription requests from incarcerated folks -- mostly from california but from other states as well. since the paper is published on a small budget, they haven't been able to honor most of these requests, so the editors have asked for some support from the community.

Given the 55,000 bed prison construction project that's in the works for California and the growing use of "civil injunctions" by state and city attorneys general to increase the criminalization of brown and black-skinned folk (everywhere but...) in the Bay Area in particular, and the militarization of city streets in Oakland and SF, it is another important moment to hear from some formerly incarcerated activist friends, folks from All of Us Or None, revolutionary journalist kiilu nyasha, Bay View editor Willie Ratcliff , and hopefully some members of the editing team of "The Abolitionist" at CR, while raising as much money as possible for the SF Bay View subscription fund.

Save the Date -- Friday, Dec. 14th 7pm; Station 40 -- and plan on coming out with friends to support the Bay View Prisoner's Subscription Fund!
