Rebel Prisoner Birthdays for September

Collection of rebel prisoners birthdays in the month of September.

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 Alex Irwin, a Ferguson prisoner who will be celebrating in relative freedom, having just made parole, and Dion Ortiz, a water protector who will be celebrating in a half-way house!

John Bramble

A former Vaughn 17 defendant and contributor to the Vaughn zine, “Live from the Trenches.” While the state has now dropped its attempts to criminalize John in relation to the uprising, he is facing continued retaliation, as he has been moved to Pennsylvania, where he is being held on lockdown indefinitely (via placement on PA’s Restricted Release List) on vague and questionable grounds. More than two years later, these prisoners are still being abused for staying in solidarity with one another against the state.
