RAM - NYC Support Through the Walls: Send Lit to Prison Rebels

Join us for our first public event! We’ll be writing letters to people inside to send them our zine catalogue and fulfilling zine requests that have already been sent to us.

RAM – NYC: Support Through the Walls is an abolitionist and anarchist organization that sends revolutionary literature (zines) 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. Send us a list of zines you would like to request and we will send them your way. We are limited by how many zines we can send in one envelope, so we’ll typically send two or three titles per request. We also encourage you to share these zines with fellow prisoners, start discussion and study groups, please send us any other questions you may have. We hope the literature will inspire you and offer solace in the days to come.

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement is a political movement dedicated to freeing people from bondage and building resistance in the United States for anti-state revolution. We situate our political movement in the context of the abolitionist struggle against slavery and continue in that tradition, from Nat Turner to the Black Liberation Movement. We believe the Civil War was never resolved and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. As revolutionary anarchists, we believe the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, as well as the abolition of contemporary slavery. The Rojava Revolution, in Northern Syria, provides us with a model for revolution today, with its foundation in communal and council based political organization, revolutionary militant defense, feminism, and anti-capitalism.
