RAM - NYC Support Through the Walls: Send Lit to Prison Rebels
This week, as always, we’ll be writing letters to people inside, sending in our zine catalogue and fulfilling zine requests that have already been sent to us.
 
But this week we will also be sending cards and letters to Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed the brutal murder of Eric Garner. He was recently placed in the SHU (solitary) for 60 days so we’d like to brighten his spirits.
 
We’ll also focus on the rapper, C-Murder, who is incarcerated in Angola Prison in Louisiana. He recently started a hunger strike to protest inhumane treatment in the prison. Angola is one of the most notorious prisons in the country.
 
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.

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.
