Wellington, New Zealand: afternoon tea and talk, January 26

Join us for afternoon tea on Saturday 26 January at 4pm to drink a toast to political prisoners around the world.

We will be discussing some current cases (like Tame Iti and Rangi Kemara) and the situation with some longstanding prisoners. We will also be talking about the arbitrary definition of ‘political prisoners’ and the prison-industrial complex. We welcome your input.

This event is being held on the birthday of Marie Mason, a eco-prisoner who is serving 22-years in super maximum security in Texas for earth liberation and animal liberation activities. Please join us and feel free to bring baking to share. Light refreshments provided.

About Marius Mason

Marius Mason is a long-time activist in the environmental and labor movements. In March 2008, he was arrested by federal authorities for charges related to two acts of property destruction that occurred in 1999 and 2000; no one was injured in either of them. He accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced on February 5, 2009 to just under 22 years. He is now serving the longest sentence of any "Green Scare" prisoner.

The “Green Scare” is the name given to the recent arrests of animal rights and environmental activists who have been charged with acts of economic sabotage. Federal authorities have sought outrageous sentences (often Life in prison) and have publicly and legally labeled the activists as “terrorists” – despite the fact that no one has been killed or injured in any of the acts.

Supporting Marius Mason does not mean agreeing with the actions that he took -- but it does mean opposing the fear-mongering tactics of the federal government and the outrageous sentences they have imposed.
