Statement from anarchist political prisoner Eric King addressed to those participating in Running Down the Walls events.
Comrades! Greetings from the Rockies. I hope everyone is feeling strong, safe, and loved. After a very active and hectic Black August I’m very happy to be joining everyone in RDTW. This year I’ll be doing two days filled with jogging around my cage, lots of plyometrics, burpees, and boxing fun, pretending I’m out in the sun with everyone having a good time. My heart’s out there.
Eric is currently being held at the Supermax in Florence, Colorado (ADX) & is extremely isolated. The ADX keeps people in their cells 24 hours a day and Eric is not able to communicate with anyone else. This is the payback the Bureau of Prisons has for him for winning at trial. pic.twitter.com/tEsQMopUHb

I love RDTW. Projects that link up those of us inside with free world activism are the best kind of project for me. The War Chest has benefited so many of us, myself included, and I feel really blessed to have folks come out, lace up, and keep us alive out there. The world is filled with shitty things, so many oppressive people and mechanisms — it’s nice to know and remember that people care, people remember, and people aren’t abandoning ship. Thank you to everyone who has shown up for us inside. We’ll get these bastards some day!
Anarchy Always, antifascism everywhere,
Love & Solidarity, EK
