We said we want peace. We didnt say we don’t know how to fight!

We take self-defense to be a natural characteristic of life. It is not
something to be considered simply in militaristic terms, but in terms of building the relationships between each other that constitute a strong society. As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way.

We come together and learn together to forge those new relationships, to gain confidence in using our bodies to protect our loved ones and neighbors, and to form communities of resistance against white supremacy and patriarchy.

Many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This is a non-cumulative course, part of our Monday series of fight
trainings. We will be covering the usual areas one would find in a
martial arts class (stretching, conditioning, technique, theory), but in a context that uses the experiences of attendees to shape the direction of the class. The class will focus on creating an inclusive discussion that would allow for each attendee to find their own motivation for their being a part of the class, with the hope that each individual’s motivations and drives will benefit the environment of the class as a whole.

Participants should wear clothing in which they are comfortable
stretching and sweating. We’ll have equipment on hand, but if you have gloves, mitts, hand wraps, jump ropes, or anything that could be useful, please bring it along. Let’s work it out!

This class will meet every other Monday!

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners
Mar 28 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, February 28th, 2017
WHERE: The Base – 1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

The images of the ceremonial burning of Oceti Sakowin that flooded the internet juxtaposed with those of violent arrests, bulldozers and humvees today are a stark reminder that this country runs on deeply rooted racist and imperialistic behavior that existed well before Agent Orange’s recent tyranny. After nearly a year of putting their bodies on the line to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline and protect sacred land, water protectors endured yet another ugly confrontation with the state on February 22nd as the state began to enforce their eviction. As we wait with bated breath to see how the situation plays out and figure out how we can support from afar, join us Tuesday to write to four folks who continue to be locked up for protecting sacred land and water.

Rattler is a Water Protector who is currently being held pre-trial on federal felony charges produced through a grand jury indictment. Rattler’s home is at Pine Ridge and he comes from a long legacy of struggle that he continued at Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline and it’s world. Please support Rattler as he fights these charges brought against him by the federal government. Rattler would love to receive your letters and cards of support.

Krow was assaulted and arrested on February 4, 2017, by a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer while supporting the struggle against the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota. She is charged with violation of felony probation and is being held at Morton County Correctional Center. The probation is from previous charges stemming from an environmental protest in Wisconsin against mining in the Penokee Hills in 2013, for which she served nine months in jail. After a recent bail reduction hearing, Krow was assigned a cash-only bail of $100,000.

Charles Jordan has been held in Morton County Jail since November 17th, 2016 on three state felony charges. He was initially ineligible for bond and his current conditions of release set by the court are unable to be met at this time. His brutal arrest is not the only time Morton County Sheriffs enacted such violence on Water Protectors. We have received reports of continued mistreatment while in custody including lack of medical services and hygiene access for weeks at a time. Please send Charles a letter letting him know that he is not alone!

Red Fawn Fallis is still being held pre-trial on federal charges as well. An indictment filed Jan. 5 charges Red Fawn with felony counts of civil disorder and discharging a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence — which, in this case, is civil disorder. These charges are in addition to an earlier charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fallis has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in connection to an incident at a Dakota Access Pipeline protest. Fallis remains in federal custody and her trial date is scheduled for March 7. If convicted of discharging the firearm, Fallis faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

We hope to see you Tuesday. If for some absurd reason you cannot make it, please take the time to write a letter to one (or ALL!) of these folks:

Rattler (address envelope to Michael Markus)

Washburn, North Dakota 58577

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way – the right way in this case is with the solid relationships between folks. So many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This will be a fight training skillshare. A trainer trained in Muay Thai will be present to facilitate, but we also encourage people to come who are trained in other fighting arts. We can exchange skills and knowledge and practice together. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!

This will be a practical workshop. Come ready to do calisthenics, other exercises and practice fight techniques.
Wear something comfortable to work out in. If you have some, you can bring: hand wraps, boxing gloves, mitts, jump ropes, or other equipment that could be useful.

Black Fighting Formations: Kuwasi Balagoon Liberation School Study Group

In conjunction with the Kuwasi Balagoon Liberation School, we are now launching a bi-weekly advanced study group on revolutionary organizing and theory. The first week of this study group we are looking at former Black Liberation Army fighter, Russell Maroon Shoatz’s incredibly important, and little known text, “Black Fighting Formations.” In this text he compares and contrasts the strengths and weaknesses of the Nation of Islam, Deacons for Defense, the Black Panther Party, and the Black Liberation Army. He looks at these movements as a participant and not a spectator, and in effect, crafted one of the most important texts of our time. Come join us this first session.

As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way – the right way in this case is with the solid relationships between folks. So many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This will be a fight training skillshare. A trainer trained in Muay Thai will be present to facilitate, but we also encourage people to come who are trained in other fighting arts. We can exchange skills and knowledge and practice together. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!

This will be a practical workshop. Come ready to do calisthenics, other exercises and practice fight techniques.
Wear something comfortable to work out in. If you have some, you can bring: hand wraps, boxing gloves, mitts, jump ropes, or other equipment that could be useful.

Martial arts training focusing on mind body and antifascism.

In the constant rise of right wing chaos, one who considers him or herself to be an anarchist, or just one searching for a better life, should have the proper means mentally and physically to hold guard against anyone or anything halting that process. Come and learn the ways, with many styles to absorb, we shall be equipped with what we need to overthrow those who do so.

We said we want peace. We didnt say we don’t know how to fight!

We take self-defense to be a natural characteristic of life. It is not
something to be considered simply in militaristic terms, but in terms of building the relationships between each other that constitute a strong society. As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way.

We come together and learn together to forge those new relationships, to gain confidence in using our bodies to protect our loved ones and neighbors, and to form communities of resistance against white supremacy and patriarchy.

Many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This is a non-cumulative course, part of our Monday series of fight
trainings. We will be covering the usual areas one would find in a
martial arts class (stretching, conditioning, technique, theory), but in a context that uses the experiences of attendees to shape the direction of the class. The class will focus on creating an inclusive discussion that would allow for each attendee to find their own motivation for their being a part of the class, with the hope that each individual’s motivations and drives will benefit the environment of the class as a whole.

Participants should wear clothing in which they are comfortable
stretching and sweating. We’ll have equipment on hand, but if you have gloves, mitts, hand wraps, jump ropes, or anything that could be useful, please bring it along. Let’s work it out!

This class will meet every other Monday!

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners
May 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, February 28th, 2017
WHERE: The Base – 1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

The images of the ceremonial burning of Oceti Sakowin that flooded the internet juxtaposed with those of violent arrests, bulldozers and humvees today are a stark reminder that this country runs on deeply rooted racist and imperialistic behavior that existed well before Agent Orange’s recent tyranny. After nearly a year of putting their bodies on the line to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline and protect sacred land, water protectors endured yet another ugly confrontation with the state on February 22nd as the state began to enforce their eviction. As we wait with bated breath to see how the situation plays out and figure out how we can support from afar, join us Tuesday to write to four folks who continue to be locked up for protecting sacred land and water.

Rattler is a Water Protector who is currently being held pre-trial on federal felony charges produced through a grand jury indictment. Rattler’s home is at Pine Ridge and he comes from a long legacy of struggle that he continued at Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline and it’s world. Please support Rattler as he fights these charges brought against him by the federal government. Rattler would love to receive your letters and cards of support.

Krow was assaulted and arrested on February 4, 2017, by a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer while supporting the struggle against the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota. She is charged with violation of felony probation and is being held at Morton County Correctional Center. The probation is from previous charges stemming from an environmental protest in Wisconsin against mining in the Penokee Hills in 2013, for which she served nine months in jail. After a recent bail reduction hearing, Krow was assigned a cash-only bail of $100,000.

Charles Jordan has been held in Morton County Jail since November 17th, 2016 on three state felony charges. He was initially ineligible for bond and his current conditions of release set by the court are unable to be met at this time. His brutal arrest is not the only time Morton County Sheriffs enacted such violence on Water Protectors. We have received reports of continued mistreatment while in custody including lack of medical services and hygiene access for weeks at a time. Please send Charles a letter letting him know that he is not alone!

Red Fawn Fallis is still being held pre-trial on federal charges as well. An indictment filed Jan. 5 charges Red Fawn with felony counts of civil disorder and discharging a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence — which, in this case, is civil disorder. These charges are in addition to an earlier charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fallis has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in connection to an incident at a Dakota Access Pipeline protest. Fallis remains in federal custody and her trial date is scheduled for March 7. If convicted of discharging the firearm, Fallis faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

We hope to see you Tuesday. If for some absurd reason you cannot make it, please take the time to write a letter to one (or ALL!) of these folks:

Rattler (address envelope to Michael Markus)
Post Office Box 1108
Washburn, North Dakota 58577

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

So many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This will be a fight training skillshare. A trainer trained in Muay Thai will be present to facilitate, but we also encourage people to come who are trained in other fighting arts. We can exchange skills and knowledge and practice together. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!

This will be a practical workshop. Come ready to do calisthenics, other exercises and practice fight techniques.
Wear something comfortable to work out in. If you have some, you can bring: hand wraps, boxing gloves, mitts, jump ropes, or other equipment that could be useful.

We said we want peace. We didnt say we don’t know how to fight!

We take self-defense to be a natural characteristic of life. It is not
something to be considered simply in militaristic terms, but in terms of building the relationships between each other that constitute a strong society. As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way.

We come together and learn together to forge those new relationships, to gain confidence in using our bodies to protect our loved ones and neighbors, and to form communities of resistance against white supremacy and patriarchy.

Many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This is a non-cumulative course, part of our Monday series of fight
trainings. We will be covering the usual areas one would find in a
martial arts class (stretching, conditioning, technique, theory), but in a context that uses the experiences of attendees to shape the direction of the class. The class will focus on creating an inclusive discussion that would allow for each attendee to find their own motivation for their being a part of the class, with the hope that each individual’s motivations and drives will benefit the environment of the class as a whole.

Participants should wear clothing in which they are comfortable
stretching and sweating. We’ll have equipment on hand, but if you have gloves, mitts, hand wraps, jump ropes, or anything that could be useful, please bring it along. Let’s work it out!

This class will meet every other Monday!

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners
Jun 20 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, February 28th, 2017
WHERE: The Base – 1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

The images of the ceremonial burning of Oceti Sakowin that flooded the internet juxtaposed with those of violent arrests, bulldozers and humvees today are a stark reminder that this country runs on deeply rooted racist and imperialistic behavior that existed well before Agent Orange’s recent tyranny. After nearly a year of putting their bodies on the line to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline and protect sacred land, water protectors endured yet another ugly confrontation with the state on February 22nd as the state began to enforce their eviction. As we wait with bated breath to see how the situation plays out and figure out how we can support from afar, join us Tuesday to write to four folks who continue to be locked up for protecting sacred land and water.

Rattler is a Water Protector who is currently being held pre-trial on federal felony charges produced through a grand jury indictment. Rattler’s home is at Pine Ridge and he comes from a long legacy of struggle that he continued at Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline and it’s world. Please support Rattler as he fights these charges brought against him by the federal government. Rattler would love to receive your letters and cards of support.

Krow was assaulted and arrested on February 4, 2017, by a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer while supporting the struggle against the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota. She is charged with violation of felony probation and is being held at Morton County Correctional Center. The probation is from previous charges stemming from an environmental protest in Wisconsin against mining in the Penokee Hills in 2013, for which she served nine months in jail. After a recent bail reduction hearing, Krow was assigned a cash-only bail of $100,000.

Charles Jordan has been held in Morton County Jail since November 17th, 2016 on three state felony charges. He was initially ineligible for bond and his current conditions of release set by the court are unable to be met at this time. His brutal arrest is not the only time Morton County Sheriffs enacted such violence on Water Protectors. We have received reports of continued mistreatment while in custody including lack of medical services and hygiene access for weeks at a time. Please send Charles a letter letting him know that he is not alone!

Red Fawn Fallis is still being held pre-trial on federal charges as well. An indictment filed Jan. 5 charges Red Fawn with felony counts of civil disorder and discharging a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence — which, in this case, is civil disorder. These charges are in addition to an earlier charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fallis has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in connection to an incident at a Dakota Access Pipeline protest. Fallis remains in federal custody and her trial date is scheduled for March 7. If convicted of discharging the firearm, Fallis faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

We hope to see you Tuesday. If for some absurd reason you cannot make it, please take the time to write a letter to one (or ALL!) of these folks:

Rattler (address envelope to Michael Markus)
Post Office Box 1108
Washburn, North Dakota 58577

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

We said we want peace. We didnt say we don’t know how to fight!

We take self-defense to be a natural characteristic of life. It is not
something to be considered simply in militaristic terms, but in terms of building the relationships between each other that constitute a strong society. As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way.

We come together and learn together to forge those new relationships, to gain confidence in using our bodies to protect our loved ones and neighbors, and to form communities of resistance against white supremacy and patriarchy.

Many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This is a non-cumulative course, part of our Monday series of fight
trainings. We will be covering the usual areas one would find in a
martial arts class (stretching, conditioning, technique, theory), but in a context that uses the experiences of attendees to shape the direction of the class. The class will focus on creating an inclusive discussion that would allow for each attendee to find their own motivation for their being a part of the class, with the hope that each individual’s motivations and drives will benefit the environment of the class as a whole.

Participants should wear clothing in which they are comfortable
stretching and sweating. We’ll have equipment on hand, but if you have gloves, mitts, hand wraps, jump ropes, or anything that could be useful, please bring it along. Let’s work it out!

This class will meet every other Monday!

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners
Aug 1 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, February 28th, 2017
WHERE: The Base – 1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

The images of the ceremonial burning of Oceti Sakowin that flooded the internet juxtaposed with those of violent arrests, bulldozers and humvees today are a stark reminder that this country runs on deeply rooted racist and imperialistic behavior that existed well before Agent Orange’s recent tyranny. After nearly a year of putting their bodies on the line to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline and protect sacred land, water protectors endured yet another ugly confrontation with the state on February 22nd as the state began to enforce their eviction. As we wait with bated breath to see how the situation plays out and figure out how we can support from afar, join us Tuesday to write to four folks who continue to be locked up for protecting sacred land and water.

Rattler is a Water Protector who is currently being held pre-trial on federal felony charges produced through a grand jury indictment. Rattler’s home is at Pine Ridge and he comes from a long legacy of struggle that he continued at Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline and it’s world. Please support Rattler as he fights these charges brought against him by the federal government. Rattler would love to receive your letters and cards of support.

Krow was assaulted and arrested on February 4, 2017, by a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer while supporting the struggle against the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota. She is charged with violation of felony probation and is being held at Morton County Correctional Center. The probation is from previous charges stemming from an environmental protest in Wisconsin against mining in the Penokee Hills in 2013, for which she served nine months in jail. After a recent bail reduction hearing, Krow was assigned a cash-only bail of $100,000.

Charles Jordan has been held in Morton County Jail since November 17th, 2016 on three state felony charges. He was initially ineligible for bond and his current conditions of release set by the court are unable to be met at this time. His brutal arrest is not the only time Morton County Sheriffs enacted such violence on Water Protectors. We have received reports of continued mistreatment while in custody including lack of medical services and hygiene access for weeks at a time. Please send Charles a letter letting him know that he is not alone!

Red Fawn Fallis is still being held pre-trial on federal charges as well. An indictment filed Jan. 5 charges Red Fawn with felony counts of civil disorder and discharging a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence — which, in this case, is civil disorder. These charges are in addition to an earlier charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fallis has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in connection to an incident at a Dakota Access Pipeline protest. Fallis remains in federal custody and her trial date is scheduled for March 7. If convicted of discharging the firearm, Fallis faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

We hope to see you Tuesday. If for some absurd reason you cannot make it, please take the time to write a letter to one (or ALL!) of these folks:

Rattler (address envelope to Michael Markus)
Post Office Box 1108
Washburn, North Dakota 58577

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way – the right way in this case is with the solid relationships between folks. So many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This will be a fight training skillshare. A trainer trained in Muay Thai will be present to facilitate, but we also encourage people to come who are trained in other fighting arts. We can exchange skills and knowledge and practice together. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!

This will be a practical workshop. Come ready to do calisthenics, other exercises and practice fight techniques.
Wear something comfortable to work out in. If you have some, you can bring: hand wraps, boxing gloves, mitts, jump ropes, or other equipment that could be useful.

stretching and sweating. We’ll have equipment on hand, but if you have gloves, mitts, hand wraps, jump ropes, or anything that could be useful, please bring it along. Let’s work it out!

This class will meet every other Monday!

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners
Sep 12 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
NYC Anarchist Black Cross: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner for NoDapl Prisoners

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, February 28th, 2017
WHERE: The Base – 1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: Free

The images of the ceremonial burning of Oceti Sakowin that flooded the internet juxtaposed with those of violent arrests, bulldozers and humvees today are a stark reminder that this country runs on deeply rooted racist and imperialistic behavior that existed well before Agent Orange’s recent tyranny. After nearly a year of putting their bodies on the line to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline and protect sacred land, water protectors endured yet another ugly confrontation with the state on February 22nd as the state began to enforce their eviction. As we wait with bated breath to see how the situation plays out and figure out how we can support from afar, join us Tuesday to write to four folks who continue to be locked up for protecting sacred land and water.

Rattler is a Water Protector who is currently being held pre-trial on federal felony charges produced through a grand jury indictment. Rattler’s home is at Pine Ridge and he comes from a long legacy of struggle that he continued at Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline and it’s world. Please support Rattler as he fights these charges brought against him by the federal government. Rattler would love to receive your letters and cards of support.

Krow was assaulted and arrested on February 4, 2017, by a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer while supporting the struggle against the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota. She is charged with violation of felony probation and is being held at Morton County Correctional Center. The probation is from previous charges stemming from an environmental protest in Wisconsin against mining in the Penokee Hills in 2013, for which she served nine months in jail. After a recent bail reduction hearing, Krow was assigned a cash-only bail of $100,000.

Charles Jordan has been held in Morton County Jail since November 17th, 2016 on three state felony charges. He was initially ineligible for bond and his current conditions of release set by the court are unable to be met at this time. His brutal arrest is not the only time Morton County Sheriffs enacted such violence on Water Protectors. We have received reports of continued mistreatment while in custody including lack of medical services and hygiene access for weeks at a time. Please send Charles a letter letting him know that he is not alone!

Red Fawn Fallis is still being held pre-trial on federal charges as well. An indictment filed Jan. 5 charges Red Fawn with felony counts of civil disorder and discharging a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence — which, in this case, is civil disorder. These charges are in addition to an earlier charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fallis has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in connection to an incident at a Dakota Access Pipeline protest. Fallis remains in federal custody and her trial date is scheduled for March 7. If convicted of discharging the firearm, Fallis faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

We hope to see you Tuesday. If for some absurd reason you cannot make it, please take the time to write a letter to one (or ALL!) of these folks:

Rattler (address envelope to Michael Markus)
Post Office Box 1108
Washburn, North Dakota 58577

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.

As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way – the right way in this case is with the solid relationships between folks. So many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This will be a fight training skillshare. A trainer trained in Muay Thai will be present to facilitate, but we also encourage people to come who are trained in other fighting arts. We can exchange skills and knowledge and practice together. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!

This will be a practical workshop. Come ready to do calisthenics, other exercises and practice fight techniques.
Wear something comfortable to work out in. If you have some, you can bring: hand wraps, boxing gloves, mitts, jump ropes, or other equipment that could be useful.

We said we want peace. We didnt say we don’t know how to fight!

We take self-defense to be a natural characteristic of life. It is not
something to be considered simply in militaristic terms, but in terms of building the relationships between each other that constitute a strong society. As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way.

We come together and learn together to forge those new relationships, to gain confidence in using our bodies to protect our loved ones and neighbors, and to form communities of resistance against white supremacy and patriarchy.

Many of us have been training independently, and many have expressed a need to increase their skills in this arena. We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones.

This is a non-cumulative course, part of our Monday series of fight
trainings. We will be covering the usual areas one would find in a
martial arts class (stretching, conditioning, technique, theory), but in a context that uses the experiences of attendees to shape the direction of the class. The class will focus on creating an inclusive discussion that would allow for each attendee to find their own motivation for their being a part of the class, with the hope that each individual’s motivations and drives will benefit the environment of the class as a whole.
