Begin Building for Jericho 2008!

Dear Supporters

Political prisoners represent the breadth of liberation and progressive movements that have worked over the years to expand justice and freedom for all in this country. Some have been held for more than 35 years, representing the continuing repression against our movements in this country. Others have only recently been sentenced, and are just beginning to serve their terms. It is in the interest of all liberation, progressive and justice-minded groups and individuals to oppose the imprisonment of political activists, which forms a major prong of repression against movements in this country.....

On October 10th, 2008 we are commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the Jericho Amnesty Movement. We are organizing a National March to the United Nations here in New York City.....

This is a national effort to once again call attention to the existence of U.S.-held Political Prisoners & Prisoners of War. It is a national effort to redouble our efforts to build a stronger movement for the liberation of our freedom fighters.

We reach out to you specifically to join in the planning and organization of this historic event. We are inviting you to attend the next planning meeting on Saturday, July 12th at the Brecht Forum to involve you in our ongoing work to make this a successful march.

If you are interested in joining us or learning how you can help, please respond to this email at OR call 718-365-4407. Also, please respond if you are interested but unable to attend this meeting. Hope to hear from you soon.
