June 11: Converge to Fight Toxic Prisons in DC

Submitted to It’s Going Down

In one month, people from across the country will converge on Washington DC for the Convergence to Support Eco-prisoners and Fight Toxic Prisons June 11-13. Over 25 organizations from across the country have endorsed the
Convergence, including prison abolition, eco-defense, anti-police violence,
environmental justice, and anti-authoritarian groups  for a weekend of
workshops, strategizing and direct action.

We are excited to announce that several former political prisoners and
supporters including Eric McDavid, Ramona Africa, Peg Millet, Jihad
Abdulmumit, and Ray Luc Levasseur, will join us to share there experiences fighting repression and living behind prison walls.

On Monday, June 13th, we will bring the momentum of the weekend into the
streets to take direct action against the Bureau of Prisons’ plans to build
a maximum security prison on an abandoned mountaintop removal coal mine in Letcher County, KY. We’ll be getting up bright and early to disrupt the
BOP’s work day. We encourage folks to come organized in affinity groups and
ready to take initiative to manifest creative disruptions. Bring banners,
signs, noisemakers, and your desire for a world without prisons.

Get Involved!

We’ll see you next month!
