garytom

Join us on June 24th from 7-9 pm at the coffee garden( 2904 Franklin
Blvd., Sacramento). We’ll be sending birthday cards to 2 different political
prisoners, and we’ll be sending a We Support You card to 4 more who we
wanted to show some summertime love and solidarity. We’ll
have plenty of cards that we can fill with individual notes from
everyone. If there are other prisoners you’d like to write – we’ll have
envelopes and paper for that too.

Hope to see you there!

Timothy Weber fell to the ground, he later died in the hospital. The
police aggressively searched the bus and the students that were on the

Joshua (Skelly) Stafford – Skelly is one of 4 Cleveland anarchists that
were arrested on April 30th, 2012 and were accused of plotting a series
of bombings. The FBI, working with an informant created the scheme,
produced the explosives, and coerced the 4 into participating. The other
3 took non-cooperating plea deals and Skelly took the case to trial
representing himself. He refused to plea guilty to something he didn’t
do. He was found guilty on all counts by his jury , and then sentenced
to 10 years in federal prison. Even though Skelly had the most minimal
role, he got the second longest sentence because he took his case to
trial. Check out: http://cleveland4solidarity.org/
