Claremont: Political Prisoner Letter Writing Night
April 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Tuesday, 17 April
Scripps Humanities Building Room 119
Claremont Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and 5C Prison Abolition are working in collaboration to write letters to domestic and international prisoners. SJP will be addressing the topic of Palestinian political prisoners in connection to the Israeli occupation, capitalist exploitation, and child prisoners. Later, we will guide people in writing letters of support to political prisoners under the guidelines of Samidoun, a Palestinian prisoner solidarity network. In addition, we will provide other educational resources that include the stories of Palestinian women prisoners and corporations that profit from Israeli prisons. Meanwhile, Prison Abolition will lead people in writing postcards to female prisoners in California, as well as letters of solidarity associated with the Black & Pink letter writing campaign which works to support incarcerated LGBTQ people of color and abolish prisons. We recognize that the struggle for Palestinian liberation and fight to end the Prison Industrial Complex through prison abolition are inherently battles fought against the same forces of patriarchal white supremacist capitalism and are necessary for world wide liberation of all people.
