The Circled (A) History Series

In the years between the Haymarket tragedy and the first ‘Red Scare’ (roughly 1887-1920), anarchism exerted a powerful influence in these so-called ‘united states.’ It drew tens of thousands of adherents from people of all backgrounds, and informed major developments in both radical and reactionary politics. The ‘Beautiful Ideal’ flourished particularly in Italian and Jewish communities, where disenchantment with exploitation and oppression in the ‘land of the free’ met many of those fleeing poverty, repression and pogroms. Anarchism offered both an analysis and possible alternative to the pervasive tyrannies of the State, Capitalism, and restrictive traditions. Jewish and Italian militants formed alternative communities within their respective enclaves, complete with their own publications (in Italian and Yiddish), affinity groups, labor unions, social centers, schools, theater groups, holidays, political tendencies and internal debates. These revolutionary social currents actively participated in and were informed by the larger international movement as well, demonstrating the anarchist ethic of solidarity through autonomy and celebration of difference.

We’ll take a look at some of the people and events that shaped these radical communities, read from participants in their own words, and discuss their ideas and actions in relation to the evolving ethics of our movement. It’s exciting and fascinating history to look at, and can hopefully help us to understand a bit better where we come from and some ways we might be able to go forward.

Lucasville Uprising Solidarity Letter Writing — RAM NYC Support Through the Walls

Lucasville Uprising Solidarity Letter Writing -- RAM NYC Support Through the Walls
In light of the 25th anniversary of the Lucasville Uprising on April 11-21 we wanted to draw attention to this pivotal event in Ohio and US prison resistance.
 
Prisoner survivors of this rebellion have spent these 25 years acting as beacons of resistance despite suffering in solitary confinement and on death row. Their persistent and stiff resistance has wrenched concessions from the State of Ohio, improved conditions for all prisoners at the supermax and inspired and participated in the burgeoning nation-wide prisoner resistance movement. From another cell-block occupation in 1997, to lawsuits against the supermax, to successful hunger strikes in 2011-2013, to death sentence resistance, to Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan’s participation and advocacy for the nation-wide strike and prisoner protest on September 9 2016, these prisoners have been at the heart of the burgeoning prisoner resistance movement.
 
This week we’ll send letters to Bomani Shakur (Keith Lamar) and Siddique Abdullah Hasan (Carlos Sanders) who are two well known revolutionary prisoners. We will also watch some clips from the film “Condemned,” which is about Bomani Shakur and the uprising.
 
RAM – NYC: Support Through the Walls is an abolitionist and anarchist organization that sends revolutionary literature to US prisoners. We recognize the prison industrial complex as one of the most draconian institutions in the United States and we want to offer our support as solidarity.

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: May Day Card Signing for Anarchist Prisoners

NYC Anarchist Black Cross:  May Day Card Signing for Anarchist Prisoners
 You’ve probably been working too many hours a week to even notice the full-blown war being waged against you by the ruling class. It is real and it is continuing. And of course there is another war– the war against folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here’s where we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our annual May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist political prisoners and there’s an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks you don’t already know, and show some base level solidarity with those behind bars.

If there’s absolutely no way you can come eat our home cooked vegan meal and sign a lot of May Day cards, but still want to support political prisoners, please consider sending some books from their wish lists.

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.

Let the Fire Burn: MOVE Documentary
On the 33rd anniversary of the MOVE seige by Philadelphia police, we are screening this film to highlight this barbaric attack by the US on a black liberation organization.
 
Let the Fire Burn is composed entirely with archival footage yet unfurls with the tension of a thriller. The documentary recounts the steps that led to a horrific massacare on May 13, 1985, when a longtime feud between the city of Philadelphia and the revolutionary group MOVE came to a deadly climax.
 
After a daylong battle in which the police used teargas, firehoses, and ultimately 10,000 rounds of ammunition in an attempt to remove MOVE members from their fortified home, authorities order military-grade explosives to be dropped on the house from a helicopter. News cameras captured the conflagration that quickly escalated — and resulted in the tragic deaths of eleven people (including five children) and the destruction of 61 homes. It was only later discovered that authorities decided to “let the fire burn.” Using only archival news coverage and interviews for a past in present tense approach, first-time filmmaker Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.

Prisoner survivors of this rebellion have spent these 25 years acting as beacons of resistance despite suffering in solitary confinement and on death row. Their persistent and stiff resistance has wrenched concessions from the State of Ohio, improved conditions for all prisoners at the supermax and inspired and participated in the burgeoning nation-wide prisoner resistance movement. From another cell-block occupation in 1997, to lawsuits against the supermax, to successful hunger strikes in 2011-2013, to death sentence resistance, to Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan’s participation and advocacy for the nation-wide strike and prisoner protest on September 9 2016, these prisoners have been at the heart of the burgeoning prisoner resistance movement.
 
This week we’ll send letters to Bomani Shakur (Keith Lamar) and Siddique Abdullah Hasan (Carlos Sanders) who are two well known revolutionary prisoners. We will also watch some clips from the film “Condemned,” which is about Bomani Shakur and the uprising.

NYC Anarchist Black Cross:  May Day Card Signing for Anarchist Prisoners
 You’ve probably been working too many hours a week to even notice the full-blown war being waged against you by the ruling class. It is real and it is continuing. And of course there is another war– the war against folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here’s where we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our annual May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist political prisoners and there’s an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks you don’t already know, and show some base level solidarity with those behind bars.

If there’s absolutely no way you can come eat our home cooked vegan meal and sign a lot of May Day cards, but still want to support political prisoners, please consider sending some books from their wish lists.

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.

In the years between the Haymarket tragedy and the first ‘Red Scare’ (roughly 1887-1920), anarchism exerted a powerful influence in these so-called ‘united states.’ It drew tens of thousands of adherents from people of all backgrounds, and informed major developments in both radical and reactionary politics. The ‘Beautiful Ideal’ flourished particularly in Italian and Jewish communities, where disenchantment with exploitation and oppression in the ‘land of the free’ met many of those fleeing poverty, repression and pogroms. Anarchism offered both an analysis and possible alternative to the pervasive tyrannies of the State, Capitalism, and restrictive traditions. Jewish and Italian militants formed alternative communities within their respective enclaves, complete with their own publications (in Italian and Yiddish), affinity groups, labor unions, social centers, schools, theater groups, holidays, political tendencies and internal debates. These revolutionary social currents actively participated in and were informed by the larger international movement as well, demonstrating the anarchist ethic of solidarity through autonomy and celebration of difference.

We’ll take a look at some of the people and events that shaped these radical communities, read from participants in their own words, and discuss their ideas and actions in relation to the evolving ethics of our movement. It’s exciting and fascinating history to look at, and can hopefully help us to understand a bit better where we come from and some ways we might be able to go forward.

And of course there is another war– the war against folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here’s where we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our annual May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist political prisoners and there’s an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks you don’t already know, and show some base level solidarity with those behind bars.

If there’s absolutely no way you can come eat our home cooked vegan meal and sign a lot of May Day cards, but still want to support political prisoners, please consider sending some books from their wish lists.

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.

Lucasville Uprising Solidarity Letter Writing -- RAM NYC Support Through the Walls
In light of the 25th anniversary of the Lucasville Uprising on April 11-21 we wanted to draw attention to this pivotal event in Ohio and US prison resistance.
 
Prisoner survivors of this rebellion have spent these 25 years acting as beacons of resistance despite suffering in solitary confinement and on death row. Their persistent and stiff resistance has wrenched concessions from the State of Ohio, improved conditions for all prisoners at the supermax and inspired and participated in the burgeoning nation-wide prisoner resistance movement. From another cell-block occupation in 1997, to lawsuits against the supermax, to successful hunger strikes in 2011-2013, to death sentence resistance, to Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan’s participation and advocacy for the nation-wide strike and prisoner protest on September 9 2016, these prisoners have been at the heart of the burgeoning prisoner resistance movement.
 
This week we’ll send letters to Bomani Shakur (Keith Lamar) and Siddique Abdullah Hasan (Carlos Sanders) who are two well known revolutionary prisoners. We will also watch some clips from the film “Condemned,” which is about Bomani Shakur and the uprising.

In the years between the Haymarket tragedy and the first ‘Red Scare’ (roughly 1887-1920), anarchism exerted a powerful influence in these so-called ‘united states.’ It drew tens of thousands of adherents from people of all backgrounds, and informed major developments in both radical and reactionary politics. The ‘Beautiful Ideal’ flourished particularly in Italian and Jewish communities, where disenchantment with exploitation and oppression in the ‘land of the free’ met many of those fleeing poverty, repression and pogroms. Anarchism offered both an analysis and possible alternative to the pervasive tyrannies of the State, Capitalism, and restrictive traditions. Jewish and Italian militants formed alternative communities within their respective enclaves, complete with their own publications (in Italian and Yiddish), affinity groups, labor unions, social centers, schools, theater groups, holidays, political tendencies and internal debates. These revolutionary social currents actively participated in and were informed by the larger international movement as well, demonstrating the anarchist ethic of solidarity through autonomy and celebration of difference.

We’ll take a look at some of the people and events that shaped these radical communities, read from participants in their own words, and discuss their ideas and actions in relation to the evolving ethics of our movement. It’s exciting and fascinating history to look at, and can hopefully help us to understand a bit better where we come from and some ways we might be able to go forward.

In light of the 25th anniversary of the Lucasville Uprising on April 11-21 we wanted to draw attention to this pivotal event in Ohio and US prison resistance.
 
Prisoner survivors of this rebellion have spent these 25 years acting as beacons of resistance despite suffering in solitary confinement and on death row. Their persistent and stiff resistance has wrenched concessions from the State of Ohio, improved conditions for all prisoners at the supermax and inspired and participated in the burgeoning nation-wide prisoner resistance movement. From another cell-block occupation in 1997, to lawsuits against the supermax, to successful hunger strikes in 2011-2013, to death sentence resistance, to Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan’s participation and advocacy for the nation-wide strike and prisoner protest on September 9 2016, these prisoners have been at the heart of the burgeoning prisoner resistance movement.
 
This week we’ll send letters to Bomani Shakur (Keith Lamar) and Siddique Abdullah Hasan (Carlos Sanders) who are two well known revolutionary prisoners. We will also watch some clips from the film “Condemned,” which is about Bomani Shakur and the uprising.

NYC Anarchist Black Cross:  May Day Card Signing for Anarchist Prisoners
 You’ve probably been working too many hours a week to even notice the full-blown war being waged against you by the ruling class. It is real and it is continuing. And of course there is another war– the war against folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here’s where we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our annual May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist political prisoners and there’s an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks you don’t already know, and show some base level solidarity with those behind bars.

If there’s absolutely no way you can come eat our home cooked vegan meal and sign a lot of May Day cards, but still want to support political prisoners, please consider sending some books from their wish lists.

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.

The Circled (A) History Series

In the years between the Haymarket tragedy and the first ‘Red Scare’ (roughly 1887-1920), anarchism exerted a powerful influence in these so-called ‘united states.’ It drew tens of thousands of adherents from people of all backgrounds, and informed major developments in both radical and reactionary politics. The ‘Beautiful Ideal’ flourished particularly in Italian and Jewish communities, where disenchantment with exploitation and oppression in the ‘land of the free’ met many of those fleeing poverty, repression and pogroms. Anarchism offered both an analysis and possible alternative to the pervasive tyrannies of the State, Capitalism, and restrictive traditions. Jewish and Italian militants formed alternative communities within their respective enclaves, complete with their own publications (in Italian and Yiddish), affinity groups, labor unions, social centers, schools, theater groups, holidays, political tendencies and internal debates. These revolutionary social currents actively participated in and were informed by the larger international movement as well, demonstrating the anarchist ethic of solidarity through autonomy and celebration of difference.

We’ll take a look at some of the people and events that shaped these radical communities, read from participants in their own words, and discuss their ideas and actions in relation to the evolving ethics of our movement. It’s exciting and fascinating history to look at, and can hopefully help us to understand a bit better where we come from and some ways we might be able to go forward.

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.

Lucasville Uprising Solidarity Letter Writing — RAM NYC Support Through the Walls
Sep 4 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Lucasville Uprising Solidarity Letter Writing -- RAM NYC Support Through the Walls
In light of the 25th anniversary of the Lucasville Uprising on April 11-21 we wanted to draw attention to this pivotal event in Ohio and US prison resistance.
 
Prisoner survivors of this rebellion have spent these 25 years acting as beacons of resistance despite suffering in solitary confinement and on death row. Their persistent and stiff resistance has wrenched concessions from the State of Ohio, improved conditions for all prisoners at the supermax and inspired and participated in the burgeoning nation-wide prisoner resistance movement. From another cell-block occupation in 1997, to lawsuits against the supermax, to successful hunger strikes in 2011-2013, to death sentence resistance, to Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan’s participation and advocacy for the nation-wide strike and prisoner protest on September 9 2016, these prisoners have been at the heart of the burgeoning prisoner resistance movement.
 
This week we’ll send letters to Bomani Shakur (Keith Lamar) and Siddique Abdullah Hasan (Carlos Sanders) who are two well known revolutionary prisoners. We will also watch some clips from the film “Condemned,” which is about Bomani Shakur and the uprising.
 
RAM – NYC: Support Through the Walls is an abolitionist and anarchist organization that sends revolutionary literature to US prisoners. We recognize the prison industrial complex as one of the most draconian institutions in the United States and we want to offer our support as solidarity.

NYC Anarchist Black Cross: May Day Card Signing for Anarchist Prisoners

NYC Anarchist Black Cross:  May Day Card Signing for Anarchist Prisoners
 You’ve probably been working too many hours a week to even notice the full-blown war being waged against you by the ruling class. It is real and it is continuing. And of course there is another war– the war against folks imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions. And here’s where we bridge the two. This week, NYC ABC will be hosting our annual May Day card-writing night. We will be sending greeting cards to anarchist political prisoners and there’s an easy (too easy? POSSIBLY!) way for you to help. Just come by, eat some food, sign some cards, maybe meet folks you don’t already know, and show some base level solidarity with those behind bars.

If there’s absolutely no way you can come eat our home cooked vegan meal and sign a lot of May Day cards, but still want to support political prisoners, please consider sending some books from their wish lists.
