This weekend, be sure to check out Running Down the Walls events in the following cities. From Prison Break:
Sunday, June 9, in NYC’s Prospect Park, at Humboldt Park in Chicago, at Lake Merritt Park in Oakland, and in LA at Echo Park Lake. Running Down the Walls will also happen in Hamilton, ON at Bayfront Park on Saturday, June 23rd, and other cities. If you can’t find a RDTW near you, maybe this is a great time to start one!
For years people have organized Running Down the Walls events on both sides of the prison walls to promote solidarity with political prisoners and also to fundraise to support anarchist and prison abolitionist projects.
2019 marks the 20-year anniversary of the Anarchist Black Cross Federation's annual Running Down the Walls 5k fund raiser for its warchest program. @nycabc has been organizing solidarity runs for over a decade. The easiest way to donate is at https://t.co/NkB03H2bOT
