In September 2014, Eric King was arrested after attempting to firebomb a congressman’s office in Kansas City, Missouri in solidarity with the Ferguson uprising. Openly defiant in court, Eric proudly stood by his action and proclaimed his commitment to the struggle against white supremacy, patriarchy, and the state. Sentenced to 10 years in prison, Eric has faced repeated threats and repression from prison administration and guards – always responding with the same rebellious spirit and mocking contempt for this world of laws and cages.
As a small gesture of complicity and love for Eric, we dropped a banner on College Avenue for the International Day of Solidarity with Eric King. We will continue to show our solidarity with Eric until the day he is free (and after!), keeping alive the fight for a life without prisons, without congressmen, without the state.
Stay strong comrade, you are ever in our thoughts.
