BLOC PARTY: REVOLT ON THE INSIDE, REVOLT ON THE OUTSIDE

The warm weather is here, and prison rebels are wasting no time to get moving. After the short-lived but intense revolt in Holman Prison in Alabama, Texas prison rebels called for a work stoppage to start on April 5th. That shit certainly kicked off, but for many obvious reasons communication from folks on the inside has been difficult. On the first day of the strike, officials from 7 facilities claimed that they were on “lockdown”, and as of the beginning of this week, there are still 4 on lockdown. Of course, we know this is just a bullshit way to obscure the strikes that are popping off in several facilities. Authorities have been censoring mail and other communications, making it difficult to tell how folks are doing inside, and how many are left on strike. We have also heard from organizers than since the prisoners run the kitchen, they are not receiving adequate food, being thrown two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a day.

BK/NY – Saturday, March 5th – Hardcore Benefit for NYC ABC

mad-diesel-abc-benefit

We’re not writing this to get all misty eyed, but there are a couple of things that make us genuinely appreciative– the support of amazing bands and the knowledge that in a world that seems to be in an infinite downward spiral there is still a subculture bound to resistance. On March 5th, come to AVIV, have some fun, and support NYC Anarchist Black Cross & The Base. All funds raised will fund the support of U.S. held political prisoners and the only public anarchist social space in Brooklyn.

Over 100 in the streets for NYC ABC NYE Noise Demo

2015 started strong as we welcomed home Eric McDavid and Norberto González Claudio. Throughout the year, we saw more comrades released. And yet, as more elders age behind the wall, we lost two true warriors, Phil Africa and Hugo Pinell. To close the year, NYC ABC organized anoise demo outside of Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), in order to protest, celebrate, and let folks on the inside know they are not forgotten.
