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!
