The Richmond Anarchist Black Cross is an autonomous Collective committed to prison abolition and prisoner support. As anarchists we are oppossed to all systems of oppression and repression and have concluded that prisons serve no positive function in society. We actively seek to abolish the institutionalized slavery of the Prison Industrial Complex. We are dedicated to working in solidarity with prisoners and drawing connections between a multitude of struggles.

 

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday June 14th at 7pm at the Wingnut at 2005 Barton Avenue. We will be planning a few upcoming events, zines,  movie screenings, programs, etc. Anyone with an interest in prison abolition, supporting political prisoners, developing bail funds for anarchists or others in Richmond, etc. should come out!

The Richmond Anarchist Black Cross wants to make people aware of a group that provides support for vegan prisoners. Part of theri suport involves working to get these prisoners access to vegan food. Another aspect is writing the prisoners letters. They have current addresses of people in prison on their website. We really encourage you to write letters to prisoners. If veganism is something you can relate to, maybe you can try one of these people.

Find out more on how to write letters to prisoners at our Letter Writing Workshop on August 17th.

New Movie: “Up the Ridge: A U.S. Prison Story”

Appalshop’s

“Up the Ridge: A U.S. Prison Story”

A shocking new documentary of urban prisoners in remote rural prisons

Up the Ridge: A U.S. Prison Story is a one-hour television documentary produced by Appalshop’s Nick Szuberla and Amelia Kirby. In 1999, Szuberla and Kirby were volunteer DJ’s for the Appalachian region’s only hip-hop radio program in Whitesburg, KY when they received hundreds of letters from inmates transferred into nearby Wallens Ridge State Prison, the newest prison built to prop up the region’s sagging coal economy. The letters described human rights violations and racial tension between staff and inmates. Filming began that year and, through the lens of Wallens Ridge, the film offers viewers an in-depth look at the United States prison industry and the social impact of moving hundreds of thousands of inner-city minority offenders to distant rural outposts. Up the Ridge explores competing political agendas that align government policy with human rights violations, and political expediencies that bring communities into racial and cultural conflict with tragic consequences. As the film makes plain, connections exist, in both practice and ideology, between human rights violations in Abu Ghraib and physical and sexual abuse recorded in American prisons.
