Fund-raising dinners are a great way to raise awareness and funds

Kelly Poe, the  photographer who organized the September 2012 exhibit of her work and Marie’s paintings in Chicago, hosted a fund-raising dinner at her house in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. Kelly says these relatively small gathering can serve as a model for an alternative way of raising money and having fun. People too often believe they have to be an event producer with bands at a public venue to create a fund raiser.

The event at Kelly’s involved only a handful of friends, a pot of chili, and a brief presentation about Marie, but served the purpose of acquainting new people with her case as well as bringing in a number of generous contributions. The latter is important for our efforts to support Marie, but bringing people together in solidarity with Marie is of equal importance.

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.
