There will be coffee and delishes!!!

Visions of Abolition is a new feature length documentary about the prison industrial complex and the prison abolition movement.

We will be screening the movie’s 2 parts on 2 different nights – Sunday February 19th at 7pm and Sunday February 26th at 7pm. Both parts of the film are less than an hour long, leaving time for group discussion afterwards.

We encourage people curious about the prison industrial system, political prisoners, women and prisons, race and prisons, what alternatives there are to prisons and more to come watch and then join in the discussion.

We will also have handouts and literature from the Richmond Anarchist Black Cross at these screenings.

The Wingnut is a sober, all ages space located at 2005 Barton Avenue. Please call 804 303 5449 or email wingnut_collective@yahoo.com for more information.

The Richmond Anarchist Black Cross is calling for a meeting for people interested in organizing against the construction of a new Richmond City Jail. We are looking for allies!

This meeting will be held during the Really Really Free Market at Main and Laurel in Monroe Park from 12-3pm. Stop on by to talk about this issue, pick up fliers for distribution, or to let us know what you want to do to stop this jail construction.

This meeting is open to anyone interested in organizing against the jail, as we are interested in organizing around a variety of topics on this issue. Together we can fight better to stop the new jail construction.

Folks interested in organizing against the Richmond City Jail but who can not make Saturday’s meeting are encouraged to get in touch with the Richmond Anarchist Black Cross at rvaabc@gmail.com or (804) 303 5449
