Prison Rebel Birthdays for December

Your list of prison rebel birthdays for the month of December, 2019.

Inspired by the spirit of the Political Prisoners Birthday crew, here’s a short listing of some rebel prisoners who have upcoming birthdays in September. For an an introduction on how to write to prisoners and some things to do and not to do, go here. If you have the time, please also check IWOC’s listing of prisoners facing retaliation for prison strike-related organizing.

Also, wishing a very happy birthday to Connor Stevens of the Cleveland 4, who will be celebrating his birthday in freedom this year – if you feel like helping him readjust to life on the outside, you can donate to his release fund here. Big congratulations to Belarusian anarchist comrade Dzmitry Paliyenka, who was released from pre-trial detention to house arrest this month, and to Scott Warren and the Sacramento antifascist defendants – I can’t say how happy I am to not be adding their names to this list!
