If you are in the New York City area please consider coming out and taking this opportunity to support Maliki Shakur Latine and other movement prisoners. If you are elsewhere you can participate and donate from wherever you may be. Much appreciation and respect to NYC Anarchist Black Cross, the Anarchist Black Cross Federation, and everyone who is running down the walls that separate us!
Here are three things you can do as the day approaches . . .
1) Send him a birthday card!
Let him know he is not forgotten on his birthday! Find or make a simple card without layers, glue, glitter, or other fun components which are unfortunately not allowed in most prisons. Try to send 1-2 weeks before the 23rd if possible. This week would be great!
2) Send a birthday donation to his legal fund!
As many of you know, the parole board has acknowledged that Maliki Shakur Latine has a stellar record of self-rehabilitation and community service and a low risk of reoffending, yet they denied him parole for the sixth time in 2014 and his appeal was denied in May 2015. Now he needs to raise 4000 dollars to file an article 78 appeal. Please donate what you can and give Maliki a gift that will count toward community healing and justice for his birthday.
3) Spread the word!
