Organizer/AuthorMarie

Join us this Sunday evening to write letters to Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and other anarchists facing long-term prison sentences. Let's remind our comrades that they and their struggles have not been forgotten! Tea and snacks will be provided.

What would you do if someone you cared about was sentenced to 20 years in prison? I don’t mean this as an empty rhetorical question. Stop and think for a second. How would you stand by them? Both personally and politically, what would “solidarity” mean? What would you do to show them they are never alone?

Unfortunately the environmental movement has had to grapple with what should be incomprehensible questions, first as Jeff “Free” Luers was sentenced to 22 years in prison, and then later when Eric McDavid was sentenced to nearly 20 years, and Marie Mason was sentenced to nearly 22 years.

June 11th became an international day of solidarity with long-term political prisoners.
