This event is a benefit for the Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund (PRLF). Many prisoners around the country read Revolution newspaper (published by RCP Publications,
(http://www.revcom.us) as well as receive books and other literature through the PRLF. The PRLF provides an educational opportunity for prisoners to engage with world events and key political, cultural, and philosophical questions of the day from a unique revolutionary perspective, including discussions of morality, religion, science, and the arts. Every week prisoners can delve into the urgent and lively news and debate about unfolding political and social struggles, and can critically think about and dissect the current state of society as well as search for an alternative. At present the PRLF has received hundreds of requests from prisoners for complementary subscriptions in Spanish and English to Revolution newspaper, and other revolutionary literature, which have not been filled because of lack of funds, which are urgently needed. PRLF works to counter increasing censorship that seeks to deny prisoners access to Revolution newspaper and the other revolutionary literature requested.
This program is being presented by a group of Bay Area teachers. more ino: (510) 684-8270
