Sacramento Prisoner Support Presents:
An International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marius Mason and all
Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners
Wednesday, June 10
At The Sol Collective (2574 21st St, Sacto)
Join us for an educational event and celebration of Eric’s recent release!
This will be Eric’s first speaking engagement in Sacramento since his
release. Let’s welcome him home and show him our continued support.
Recently released political prisoner – Eric McDavid
Eric’s Habeas Attorney – Ben Rosenfeld
Members of SPS, including Jenny Esquivel, who is part of Eric’s legal team
In May 2008 at the Sacramento federal courthouse, Eric McDavid, a green
anarchist, was sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison after being
entrapped by a government informant. He was released this January – 10
years early – after settling his habeas petition. SPS will be talking
about the experience we’ve gained through engaging in support work for
Eric the last 9 1/2 years. Members of his legal team will talk about the
case and the dynamic partnership between Eric’s lawyers and members of his
support team that ultimately led to Eric’s release. Eric will talk about
his experience of support in general from within prison and throughout the
last 5 months of his early release, as well as the importance of creating
those types of connections for people held in prison for their beliefs.
We will also be talking about the cases of two other anarchist prisoners:
Marius Mason and Eric King.
Marius Mason was sentenced to nearly 22 years in federal prison for acts
of sabotage in the name of eco defense. He is now being held in a prison
within a prison in Carswell,TX. There is more info at: supportmarius.org.
Eric King has been held for nearly 9 months at a private prison in Kansas
and is facing 30 years in federal prison after being accused of tossing
two molotov cocktails into a senator’s office window in Kansas City, MO.

McDavid and to express solidarity with Marius Mason and Eric King.
Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
We hope to see you there!
