Hello Friends and Comrades,

Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for February. As always,
please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing
night of your own. We’re still experimenting with the format a little, so
this month is also a double sided 11×17 that can also be used as a poster
to promote your local letter writing night.

This month’s poster is dedicated to Aaron Swartz. Here is an article we
posted about his life and death.

Luke O’Donovan has been released. His bail was 35K. He is in very high
spirits and is currently resting with his friends and family. Luke has
still not been indicted and there is still need for much more money to
cover lawyers and legal costs. http://letlukego.com

Accused Earth Liberation Front arsonist Rebecca Rubin has been transferred
again. Please write her letters of love and support. Remember, she is
still pre-trial so please avoid writing about anything to do with her
case.

“What are you wearing?  Why a cape with your pants tucked into your socks?”

A documentary recently completed by Baldeep on Richmond Food Not Bombs.
Please watch and share!
We are always looking for more organizers, more political events, more donations, more fundraisers, etc.

Thanks Baldeep!

This essay was written by our friend Baldeep who is also an organizer with Richmond Food Not Bombs and recently facilitated an event at the Wingnut on Monsanto at the Wingnut.

 

Turban Doesn’t Mean Terrorist By Baldeep Singh Pooni

A narrative of the conscious awakening I experienced very recently. Sikhs are people who follow Sikhism, a religion that originated in India. Sikhs have no connection to 9/11 or terrorism yet we have been accused, harassed, attacked,targeted and killed in America and though out the world.Are we not human beings?Don’t we Sikhs also deserve the equality, respect,dignity and justice like every other human being?
A perma-link to this essay is below. We will have print copies available at the Wingnut by the end of January.
