We will be talking (and singing) about Prisons and Prisoners
from an Anarchist perspective; from the history of the modern prison system to its present impact on all our lives, from prisoners' rights and solidarity struggles to the modern prison abolition movement.
As always there will be raffles, snacks and drinks. All funds collected at this meeting will be sent to the Los Angeles chapter of the Anarchist Black Cross. We hope to see you there!
Barry Pateman will be speaking on the early days of the Anarchist Black Cross.
Isaac Ontiveros from Critical Resistance will speak on prison abolition.
Music provided by the ABSC house band, featuring Devin Hoff.
Admission is $5 ($4 with membership card)
