NYC ABC: Letter-Writing Dinner For Nina Droz Franco
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
NYC ABC: Letter-Writing Dinner For Nina Droz Franco

NYC ABC started hosting our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writingdinners well over a decade ago, mostly because one of us was just getting out of prison and we had close comrades still inside. All this time later, many are no longer imprisoned, for a variety of reasons, while others remain under the yoke of the state and other still have more recently been imprisoned. This week we are focusing on one of the latter, Nina Droz Franco.

Nina Alejandra Droz Franco was arrested by the Puerto Rico Police as she sat on the street to block a line of riot cops during disturbances that followed a 2017 May Day march. Later that day, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) took over the investigation. On May 2nd, she was transferred to federal custody and charged with damaging or attempting to damage by means of fire a building engaged in activity affecting interstate commerce. Specifically, she was accused of trying to set fire to the Banco Popular building, which was the target of rage for hundreds of protesters who smashed its glass windows and wrote on its walls. Droz Franco initially pled not guilty, but on July 12 changed her plea after reaching a non-cooperating agreement with the prosecution that recommended a sentence of three years and one month in prison, while her attorney argued for two years. On June 12th, 2018, she was sentenced to 37 months in prison and three years of probation.

If for whatever reason you are not able to join us, please write to Nina:

The Weather Underground – Film

The Weather Underground - Film

In the late 1960s and early 1970s polarization of American political situation was becoming acute, with the Vietnam War abroad and civil rights at home being the most pressing issues. For the youth political movement, seemingly ineffectual methods of peaceful protest and resistance led to the rise of a faction that wanted a more extreme approach that the government could not ignore. One particular group, the Weather Underground, attempted to team up with the Black Panthers to violently confront the US government. They began with participation in street riots, and escalated their efforts to include the bombing of specific targets associated with the government or local power structures. Through archival footage and interviews of participants on both sides of this conflict, this film covers the Weather Underground’s campaign of violence through this period, the FBI’s strategies and tactics to apprehend them including their notorious unethical and illegal practices.

A Happy Future Is A Thing of the Past: The Greek Crisis and Other Disasters
Nov 24 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
A Happy Future Is A Thing of the Past: The Greek Crisis and Other Disasters

Pavlos Roufos presents his new book A Happy Future is a Thing of the Past: The Greek Crisis and other Disasters, published in association with the Brooklyn Rail. Setting the 2010 Greek economic crisis in its historical context, Roufos explores the creation of the Eurozone, its “glorious” years, and today’s political threats to its existence. By interweaving stories of individual people’s lived experiences and describing in detail the politicians, policies, personalities, and events at the heart of the collapse, he situates its development both in terms of the particularities of the Greek economy and the overall architecture of Europe’s monetary union. With both austerity and debt burdens still present, Pavlos answers the question, if the programs were doomed to fail from the start, as many claim, what were the real objectives of such devastating austerity? This broad examination also illuminates the social movements that emerged in Greece in response to the crisis, unpacking what both the crisis managers and many of their critics presented as a given: that a happy future is a thing of the past.

“A careful and penetrating analysis of the cruel torment of Greece, and its background in the emerging global political economy, as the regimented capitalism of the early postwar period, with gains for much of the population, has been subjected to the assault of neoliberal globalization, with grim effects and threatening consequences.”
(Noam Chomsky)

This presentation is sponsored by Prometeo collective.
