Update #5 on Amelia Nicol

June 16, 2011 by denverabc

On Monday June 13, Amelia joined friends and comrades on the outside after
being jailed for 38 days.

She is currently out on bond, and will have another court hearing on June
27th, to face arraignment for the remaining felony and three misdemeanor
charges that she is facing.

We at Denver ABC are overjoyed that Amelia is out of jail and amongst
folks that care about her and her continued struggle. We want to send a
resounding thank you to everyone who has supported Amelia, by contributing
monetary donations, sending mail to her in jail, writing letters to the
DA, attending the press conference and court dates, or fighting against
predatory political, economic, and social systems across the world.

We’re still in major need of funds, as Amelia’s bond money came in the
form of a short term loan. Amelia will need prolonged support and help
from folks in Denver and beyond as she continues to fight this legal

If you can make a donation, please consider doing so!

Funds can be mailed to:

Denver ABC
c/o P&L Printing

We would also encourage folks to organize benefit shows or other efforts
to help support Amelia and the work of Denver ABC. We can send you a
package of outreach materials about Amelia’s case and the cases of other
prisoners we support. Contact us at if you are
interested in getting some of these materials mailed to you.

You can also order copies (bulk or individual) of “Denver Fights Back” a
new zine published by P&L Press available at All
proceeds from the sale of this zine go to benefit Amelia’s legal fund.

In other related news, Denver ABC is in the midst of organizing a
continental gathering of folks active in Anarchist Black Cross chapters
set for August here in Denver. We’re currently raising funds for this
effort as well. Funds will be used to help bring former prisoners,
including Bo Brown, Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin, and Ramona Africa, to Denver
for this conference.

If you’re interested in donating to this effort, you can send funds the
same way as mentioned above, but please write “ABC Conference” in the memo
line. You can also purchase a canvas reproduction print of an amazing
portrait of Marilyn Buck from P&L Press at All
sales of this print will be donated to the ABC Conference efforts.

We thank you immensely for your support of Amelia and the work of Denver
ABC! For a world without cops, borders, bosses, or politicians!

Your comrades at Denver ABC

Below is a message from Amelia to all of those who have shown her, and
continue to show her, support:

The court hearing on June 9th was a great victory for everyone who has
been involved in this case, and I have been released on bond thanks to all
of the hard work from all of the people who have been supporting this
case; especially the people at Denver ABC who have put in an enormous
amount of time and effort to see that not only this case, but other cases
like it are seen, heard, and therefore part of a growing movement for true
freedom for everyone who is standing up against the daily injustice that
we all face in the existence of police forces.

I feel privileged to be able to be a part of a movement that has been
building for centuries; one that is in constant continuation in all of us
who choose to stand up together against capitalism and the rule of
government that has been instigated over us. Thank you for your continued
support in this case and I encourage you to write to me (I loved all of
your letters) at

I am fortunate to call you comrades.

Amelia Nicol
