Every year, June 11th is marked by solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoners, both in the US and across the world. With repression of social movements ramping up, the need for prisoners support is needed now more than ever. We cannot also forget those who have already spend years and decades behind the parts. They are in there for us, we must be out here for them. Below is a list of events being organized. If we missed one, be sure to email us at info [at] itsgoingdown [dot] org.
If there is nothing being organized in your town, you can still:
- Donate here.
- Write a letter to a prisoner. Here are some tips if you haven’t before. Even 2-5 friends together making art and sending cards can brighten a prisoners’ day!
- Organize an event or show solidarity! Putting up flyers and posters a good first step.
- Here’s a history of June 11th for some ideas.

If you're organizing an event for June 11, the day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoners, & looking to screen a film, we recommend the Icelandic movie "Woman at War"—a fictionalized version of the lives of eco-warriors like Marius Mason. https://t.co/xR6OWKbxrG pic.twitter.com/HGNaPabGP5
