Mon Jul 7 2014Monterey Chapter of the Anarchist Black Cross to Launch on Bastille Day
Mon Jul 7 2014Letter Writing Group to Focus on Political Prisoners in the California Prison System
Direct Action Monterey Network has announced the group will be celebrating Bastille Day and launching the Monterey chapter of the Anarchist Black Cross. On Monday, July 14 a launch party will be held on Del Monte Beach in Monterey, and on Tuesday, July 15 a letter writing party will be held to support political prisoners in California's jail and prison systems.
Direct Action Monterey Network writes: "Since the beginning of the Twentieth Century, the Anarchist Black Cross (ABC), has been on the frontline in supporting those imprisoned for struggling for freedom and liberty. Until recently, the history of the ABC movement has been lost to the pages of time. The present generation of ABC collectives were left rootless with little known information about this organization. Now, specific questions regarding our origin can now be put to rest. We have now begun to rediscover our roots."
"The [ABC] also works to build alliances with the communities and the movements the prisoners participated in prior to their incarceration. Through these alliances, we work toward increasing the awareness about various liberation movements and the political prisoners associated with the movements. It is through these coalitions that we continue to ensure that imprisoned comrades are not forgotten by their movements or our own."
Monthly letter writing session for political prisoners, with an emphasis on political prisoners in California's jails and prisons, will be held on the third Tuesday of each month at 8pm at Old Capitol Books in downtown Monterey.
