***Holidays are approaching! Time to buy the 2017 Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar.
The Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal, Toronto, and New York, in partnership with three political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York State: David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell.
*For orders of 1-9 copies ($12 each): see
*For bulk orders of 10 or more copies ($8 each): see
Your group can buy 10 or more for the rate of $8 each and then sell them for $12, keeping the difference for your organization. Many campaigns, infoshops and projects do this as a way of raising funds and spreading awareness about political prisoners.
This year’s theme is Sustaining Movements, and features art and writings by Farha Najah, Sekou Odinga, David Gilbert, Daniel McGowan, Oscar Lopez Rivera, Sophia Dawson, Chris Dixon, Emory Douglas, Laura Whitehorn, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Xinachtli, Micah Bazant, Capital Area Against Mass Incarceration, South Asian Women’s Community Centre, Mazatl, Marius Mason, Eric King, Kevin “Rashid” Johnson, Jennifer Meeropol, Leonard Peltier, Amanda Priebe, the Termite Collective, Walidah Imarisha, Ali Cat Leeds and more.
The proceeds from Certain Days 2017 will be divided among these groups: Addameer Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association (Palestine), Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) and the Unist’ot’en camp.
Our calendar project was suggested by Herman in 2001, and has been shaped throughout the years by all of our ideas, discussions, and analysis. All of the current members of the outside collective are grounded in day to day organizing work other than the calendar, on issues ranging from migrant justice to community media to prisoner solidarity. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer- and trans-liberationist position.
