Running Down The Walls 2022 Reportback

Running Down The Walls 2022 Reportback
We’re pleased to share the success and reportback from the fifth annual Philadelphia Running Down The Walls in support of political prisoners and prisoners of war. It was a consistent 70 degrees with intermittent rain showers on Sunday September 11th. Despite the soggy weather, around 150 participants began arriving around 10am. We kicked off the day with an inspiring Yoga warm-up led by Sheena Sood. Did you say Yoga warm-up? In the rain? That's right! A crowd participated in a drizzly Yoga warm-up as the remainder were checking in and setting up tables. [Read More]

From Coast to Coast: Open Letter by Anarchist Prisoner Toby Shone

From Coast to Coast: Open Letter by Anarchist Prisoner Toby Shone
I’ve previously written about the need to recreate an Atlantic bridge, based on international revolutionary solidarity and reciprocal knowledge, that moves towards affinity and direct action in support of our imprisoned comrades. Since then, I was recently visited by a comrade from Anarchist Black Cross Philadelphia here at the G4S facility in which I’m held.

She provides regular outcalls to elders and clients who cannot leave their homes as a professional massage therapist. [Read More]

Tuesday July 5th: Letter-writing for Karla & Magda

Tuesday July 5th: Letter-writing for Karla & Magda
Join us as we write to Magda and Karla, feminist political prisoners in so-called Mexico. This past April 15th, a spectacular operation with more than 200 police officers occurred outside of the property of Okupa Cuba Casa de Refugio in Mexico City. At this eviction, the authorities took women that were in Casa as refugees– women who had to leave their homes, run away from the violent femicide that plagues Mexico, and took refuge to save their lives in Okupa Cuba Monumenta Viva.
