Hello Friends and Comrades,

Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for May. The file is a
little big this month so give it a second to open. As always, please post
this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your
own.

Mother’s Day began not just as a day to honor mothers, but as a day for
mothers to express solidarity with one another and against the wars that
left widows and orphans impoverished. This Mother’s Day, in honor of this
tradition, we are calling for a global day of solidarity with incarcerated
mothers and against a penal system that disproportionately cages people
based on race, class, and gender non-conformity. Please circulate this
call far and wide and help organize a noise demo outside a prison or jail
near you that holds women captive.

Here is a flyer that was made for one mother’s day demo that you can pass
out at yours.

June 11th is the international day of solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie
Mason, and all long term anarchist prisoners. You still have plenty of
time to organize something in your town. You can find more info on
organizing an event and what has happened in previous years here.

The campaign to get former Black Panther Russell Maroon Shoatz out of
solitary is still going on. He has been held in torturous conditions of
solitary confinement in Pennsylvania prisons for the past thirty years.
From April 8 to May 10, 2013, the Campaign to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz
is calling for an intense call-in and write-in campaign to bring pressure
on the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (PA DOC), to release Maroon
from solitary confinement and into the general prison population. You can
find out all about it and download action packets on his support page.

Come join the Anarchist Black Cross at the monthly Really Really Free Market (on the last Saturday of every month) to write letters to prisoners who will be celebrating their birthdays the following month. We will have a table set up with instructions, addresses and descriptions, envelopes, and people to help answer any questions. rvaabc@gmail.com to get in touch!

We will be using the prisoners’ birthdays posters created monthly by the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective, and will also have additional prisoner addresses available.
This is a monthly event that will repeat every last saturday of each month.


This event occurs from 12-3pm at the corner of Main and Laurel in Monroe Park. Come on out to support political prisoners and talk to people interested in prison abolition.
