You've probably been working too many hours a week to even notice the
full-blown war being waged against you by the ruling class. It is real and
it is continuing. And of course there is another war-- the war against
folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here's where
we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our fourth annual
May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist
political prisoners and there's an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you
to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks
you don't already know, and show some base level solidarity with those
What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm (sharp), Tuesday, April 26th, 2011
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your
friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal,
information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing
materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in
one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political
prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a
long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass
around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two
weeks thanks to the Anarchist Birthday Brigade.
Getting to 885 Park Avenue is simple:
From the J/M/Z:
Flushing Stop: Walk southeast on Broadway (toward Sumner Place, away from
Thornton Street) and make a right on Park Avenue. We’re halfway down the

We’re three and a half blocks down on your left.

you at supper.
