Come on out at 7pm on August 4th to hang out in the back yard of the Bainbridge Collective on Southside and listen to some local zinesters and zine enthusiasts read from their zines or zines they love.

Danny Rathburn will be presenting.

More confirmed readers on the way.
Please get in touch if you want to read for this event.

We are asking for folks to bring a few dollars to donate to the Richmond Zine Fest.

The Bainbridge Collective is located at 1300 Bainbridge St.

Tuesday May 29th at 8pm at 1300 Bainbridge Road on Richmond’s southside. Facilitated by Jeff Winder.

On Tuesday May 22 as many as 45 prisoners at Red Onion State Prison, comprising at least 2 segregation pods, will enter the first day of a hunger strike protesting deplorable conditions in the prison and ongoing abuses by prison staff. For the men participating in the strike this is their only recourse to get Red Onion warden Randy Mathena to officially recognize their grievances and make immediate changes to food, sanitation and basic living conditions at the prison.

Gather with us in Richmond and show solidarity for the struggle of these courageous men by writing letters to state officials in support of the Hunger Strikers and their demands. We’ll provide all of the materials – paper and envelopes, stamps, talking points, sample letters and addresses. We’ll also put out some refreshments and look forward to talking with you about what else we might do in Richmond to offer support.

These men are organizing at great personal risk to themselves and and it’s vitally important that prison officials know we are watching!

For more information including a list of the demands visit the website of SPARC (Supporting Prisoners and Acting for Radical Change), the group that is in direct contact with the Hunger Strikers and is coordinating the support on the outside. this group includes former prisoners in VA supermax prisons, families members of current prisoners and allies.
