June 11th: International Day of Solidarity With Marius Mason, Eric McDavid & All Longterm Anarchist Prisoners

June 11thVia June11.org:

The last year has been full of changes and transitions for our imprisoned comrades and for those of us engaged in struggle on the other side of the walls. Now, solidly in the throes of spring, we feel compelled to celebrate these transitions and victories as new life and energy burst forth all around us. It is not often that we get a chance to truly mix celebration and struggle – but now is one of those times! On January 8th of this year the Eastern District Court of California ordered Eric McDavid released from prison. Our comrade Marius came out publicly as a man and began seeking resources for his physical transition. We believe these are both transitions worthy of celebration and reason for continued struggle. It is in this spirit that we bring you our thoughts about J11 2015.

Read the full call-out, check out past and future events, and get resources to help your very own plans at the main June 11th organizing page. We are also happy to help promote your event! Please e-mail supportmariusmason [at] riseup [dot] net and we will post the details on our web site and listserv. Until all are free!

Music for Prisoners Benefit Show Great Success

The Music for Prisoners and Marie Mason in Minneapolis on Nov. 12 went well. A very good, young Native hip-hop act called “Savage Instinct” opened the evening before singer/songwriter David Rovics performed. Many of the organizers of the RNC protests were there, and others who have been involved with direct action protests including the Minnehaha Free State back in the 90′s.
Note: David’s new CD, Meanwhile In Afghanistan, is now available for purchase at his online store, along with the 8-CD David Rovics Combo Pack, the 99-song Playbutton MP3 player and more merch!
