Originating as a day of solidarity for eco-prisoners, June 11 remains anchored in a project of ecological defense and struggle against a society based on exploitation and confinement.
Join us on the annual day of solidarity with long-term eco- and anarchist prisoners, including Marius Mason and Eric McDavid. They were subject to the longest federal prison terms (22 yrs and 20 yrs respectively) of those indicted in the so-called “Green Scare”, targeting radical activists.
In calling for the day, we aim to deepen ongoing support for comrades facing long sentences. We are committed to building a model of solidarity that is both long-term and rooted in our work.
On January 8th of this year, Eric McDavid was released from prison after nine years of incarceration.
Last year Marius Mason publicly shared his new name and use of male pronouns that better reflect his transition to a masculine gender identity.
Join us to discuss ways to support our comrades.
