Support Coyote Acabo

coyote

Coyote Acabo , an anti-racist activist from Olympia, WA has a rough road ahead of him and could really use some support. He is currently serving 13 days on an anti-police graffiti case, and has another 22 days to serve in the very near future on a case where he was convicted of throwing a rock at a truck belonging to a neo-nazi. That’s a neo-nazi that showed up with many others to counter an anti-police brutality protest that Coyote was a part of.

Last year, Olympia saw a lot of spirited marches and demonstrations in protest of an Olympia police officer shooting two young black men, Andre Thompson and Bryson Chaplin. In response to the very understandable anti-police brutality demonstrations that were going on at that time, neo -nazis were showing up to disrupt the protesting which at times even meant neo-nazis attacking the protesters.

Well, Coyote has a third case that he is currently dealing with, and for that case his trial starts on September 19th where he is being charged with felony assault. In this case he is being accused of pepper spraying a counter protester who grabbed someone who was a part of an anti- police brutality protest that Coyote was a part of.

Coyote is now in the city jail in Olympia, WA and money is being raised that will go towards phone calls , commissary, and to help his family out while he is locked up.

Visit the crowd funding site,  here to learn more about how you can donate to the support fund. Also, please pass it around as well. Solidarity from near and far is so important in times like these.

 

Running Down The Walls – Chico – September 11th

 

aa2014_logo

JOIN US TO: BENEFIT POLITICAL PRISONERS

RUNNING DOWN THE WALLS: AK Press, Critical Resistance (Oakland), Freedom Archives, The Pageant Theater, and Sacramento Prisoner Support will host a 5k run / walk / jog / bike on 9/11/16 at Bidwell Park, in Chico, CA. This event is designed to raise much-needed funds for the Anarchist Black Cross Federation (ABCF) Warchest.

SUPPORT THE STRUGGLE: Remember that many of those arrested in the past or present are not far from us. Many of them were and are community and labor activists, queer and environmental activists, people who decided to speak out against various forms of oppression and paid the price of freedom for their actions. Anyone of these people could have at one time stood beside us in a demonstration, at a speak-out or even a organizing meeting. At any moment it could be us who finds ourselves in this situation, so it is imperative that we ensure that a strong community of support exists for these people as well as ourselves. The strength of our movement is determined by how much we support our fallen comrades.

POLITICAL PRISONER/PRISONERS OF WAR: A person incarcerated for actions carried out in support of legitimate struggles for self-determination or for opposing the policies of the government or its political subdivisions. These prisoners come from a variety of backgrounds and movements, some of which include eco/animal liberation, anti-imperialist, Black/New Afrikan Liberation, anarchist, and Indigenous struggles, grand jury resistors and more.

WHEN: Sunday, September 11th, 2016 at 10:00a.m.

WHERE: Bidwell Park , Chico

Fee: $10 to enter

LOGISTICS: We encourage you to preregister by emailing rdtw.chico@ gmail.com. The 5K course begins and ends right off South Park Dr. (near Linden).

“The first duty of the revolution will be to abolish prisons—those monuments of human hyprocrisy and cowardice. Anti-social acts need not be feared in a society of equals, in the midst of a free people, all of whom have acquired a healthy education and the habit of mutually aiding one another.”—Peter Kropotkin
