Introduction to supporting prisoner resistance, London, 13 January, and upcoming prisoner birthdays

The IWW’s Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee have an upcoming open meeting for people interested in getting involved with supporting prison resistance, which will be taking place at Decentre in Whitechapel, London on January 13th. They’ve also been circulating a call for people to call into HMP Risley over a situation where prisoners were left without running water:

Over in the US, Florida prisoners will be launching a strike called Operation PUSH on January 15th, prison writer Keith “Malik” Washington and others have been very active in exposing the horrific conditions at the Eastham Unit in Texas recently, and the Free Alabama Movement are gearing up for a year of economic boycotts targetted at the companies that profit from inmates. This month also sees a number of birthdays of political prisoners – checking last January’s calendar, it’s nice to see that it’s out of date in that Oscar Lopez Rivera will be celebrating his first birthday in the free world in a long time, but anarchist hacker Jeremy Hammond, elderly black liberation prisoners Sundiata Acoli, Herman Bell (who’ll be turning 70 this month), and JoeJoe Bowen, along with Marius Mason, who’s serving time for environmental direct action, all have upcoming birthdays if you fancy sending them a card.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
