An Afternoon of International Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

An Afternoon of International Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners
Philly ABC invites you to join us this Sunday, from 1:00 - 3:30pm at Iffy Books (319 N. 11th St. #3E) for an important afternoon of international solidarity with anarchist prisoners across the pond. It is our firm belief that political education and solidarity work should extend far beyond the borders of the territories we live in and fight against. In this special event we’ll be hearing from UK-held anarchist prisoner Toby Shone and from a supporter of Italian anarchist prisoners Alfredo Cospito and Anna Beniamino. [Read More]

Give Through the Bars 2022

Give Through the Bars 2022
The closing stretch of 2022 with its holidays and festive gatherings is in sight. No doubt, many of you are eager to gift the new Certain Days calendar to friends and loved ones. However, just because the year is winding down into sweater weather and hot cocoa, does not mean that the Anarchist Black Cross Federation’s struggle against repression will be taking a break. On the contrary, we plan for 2023 to be full of solidarity, mutual aid, and freedom for political prisoners and we’d love it if you could help us get a head start on those efforts. [Read More]

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]
