Announcing a zine collection in memory of political prisoner Tom Manning.
Some friends have put together a zine collecting the public statements made in memory of long term political prisoner Tom Manning since he passed away in prison on July 30th. It was released on September 29th to join in spirit with all those who gathered for Tom’s memorial that day in Boston.
Tom was a comrade, an elder and a teacher for generations on both sides of the walls. Many of us will always continue to carry Tom’s spirit in our hearts and our work. We thought that having these beautiful statements collected in a zine would be one way to honor Tom and to help our many different projects and spaces keep Tom present with us. We also wanted to collect the statements to uplift and support the political prisoners who wrote about Tom and heed their words about our struggles as we mourn a movement elder.
