Join us for June letter writing at the Minnehaha Free Space this Thursday, October 2 from 7-9PM. October’s featured prisoner is Casey Brezik, an accused anarchist assassin from the Kansas City area who is charged with slashing the throat of the Dean of Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley in a plot to attack the Governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, during a talk at the college. (Nixon later canceled.)
Casey is currently being held by the state of Missouri for 12 years on each of three counts – assault, and two armed criminal action charges – and seven years on a second count of assault. All sentences will run concurrently. In February 2011, the state declared him to be incapable of standing trial, which means he was forced to stay locked up in a mental institution until June of 2013 when he was sentenced to 12 years in state prison.
What is this? A chance to hang out, write to prisoners, and discuss anti-prison issues and activities with other rad folks! Letter-writing nights happen the first thursday of every month, and a different prisoner is featured each time.
Thursday, March 6. 7 pm.
John Anthony Borell III is a hacker serving a 3 year sentence for hacking police websites in at least 5 states as a part of operation #CabinCr3w, an Anonymous splinter project directly targeting the police as “the foot soldiers of this government- controlled police state.”

How can you fight activist repression, connect with others in our community who care about political prisoners, and environmental issues, have your cake and eat it too? Come join us at the Minnehaha Free Space for International Move Marie day, to kick off the campaign to have political prisoner Marie Mason moved out of the highly restrictive maximum security unit at FMC Carswell, and work towards abolishing the unit altogether.
There will be letter writing games, lively (we promise!) presentations about the campaign & Marie herself; Lynne Stewart, the radical lawyer who is currently being denied compassionate release from Carswell; and what we can do to continue the fight against Monsanto, a struggle which took away Marie’s freedom in the first place.
We promise conversation and dessert a plenty, and it’s free, family friendly, and open to the public.
