Anarchist Prisoner Support and Resisting State Repression event coming to Grand Rapids April 5

March 28, 2012

Sacramento Prisoner Support and the Marie Mason Support Crew are traveling the country giving multimedia presentations on anarchist prisoners Eric McDavid and Marie Mason’s cases as well as facilitating discussions about long-term prisoner support and building stronger cultures of resistance.

This group will be in Grand Rapids on April 5 to talk about these political prisoners, ways that people can become involved in supporting these political prisoners and learn about ways to protect ourselves from state repression.

According to the Never Alone blog site, “the nationwide Never Alone tour is crisscrossing the country in April 2012, featuring the usual suspects speaking about long-term anarchist prisoner support. Focusing specifically on the cases of Eric McDavid and Marie Mason, the tour will mark the spots where the events of these cases unfolded, using multimedia presentations to bring the facts of these cases to light.

As well as raising awareness and support for Eric and Marie, the tour will also feature strategizing about how to more effectively grow a culture of resistance that can breach the prison walls and sustain us and our friends for the long term, a security culture beyond 101 workshop (updated for 2012, now with extra tech!) and some awesome guest speakers. Truly, you won’t want to miss this.

When our friends and loved ones are snatched from us and held captive by the state, we become all too aware that we are never alone. The eyes of the state are always upon us, attempting to silence our voices and still our hands. To keep us from doing the work we know must be done. We must act despite this.

Because we also know that it is imperative that our friends on the inside know that they, too, are never alone. That we will stand by them throughout their time in prison, and welcome them with open arms when they return. That the struggles they were involved in continue on, and that they are empowered to continue on in struggle from inside the prison walls.

And we know that we can’t do this alone. We need the active support of our communities to give us the strength and courage to struggle for our friends and their freedom.”
