Running Down the Walls 2018!

Every year, prisoners and supporters of political prisoners organize solidarity events with Running Down the Walls. Money raised goes into the Anarchist Black Cross Warchest, which goes to support political prisoners.

In the last few years, we’ve had runs in Albuquerque (NM), Arcata (CA), Ashland (OR), Bellefonte (PA), Boston (MA), Buffalo (NY), Chico (CA), Denver (CO), Elmore (AL), Inez (KY), Los Angeles (CA), Marion (IL), Minneapolis (MN) New York (NY), USP Navosta (TX), Pelican Bay (CA), Phoenix (AZ), Tucson (AZ), Seattle (WA), and Toronto, Ontario. This year is no different.

This year’s run will (mostly) take place on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 at 2:00 pm in solidarity and conjunction with runs that will take place in cities and prison yards across the country at the same time. Each year, the proceeds from the runs are split between the Anarchist Black Cross Federation’s Warchest Program* and a local organization. You can donate to the run via https://www.paypal.me/nycabc or

* The Warchest Program:
The Anarchist Black Cross Federation (ABCF) has initiated a program designed to send monthly checks to those Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War who have been receiving insufficient, little, or no financial support during their imprisonment. The Warchest program was initiated in November 1994. Its purpose is to collect monthly funds from groups and individual supporters, and send that money to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War (PP/POW) via monthly checks. Over the last two decades, the ABCF warchest has dispensed over $85,000 to political prisoners in the United States. Currently, there are 15 imprisoned comrades who receive a monthly stipend as part of the program; they are:

Veronza Bowers
David Gilbert
Hanif Be

Jaan Laaman
Jalil Muntaqim
Joseph Bowen

Malik Smith
Oso Blanco
Robert Seth Hayes
Ruchell Magee
Sundiata Acoli
Tom Manning
Xinachtli (FKA Alvaro Luna Hernandez)
