With Love from behind Enemy Lines: Prison Dispatch from Daniel McGowan

Political Prisoner Daniel McGowan's first public statement from Prison:

"I have a 7 year prison sentence and a lot of time to write. Being publicly silenced to comment on my case has not been easy and I assure you I have a lot to say. We have a lot of time to cover all these topics. For now, I’m ok. I’m at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. It is a boring, lifeless jail housing over 2000 men either awaiting trial, or like me, awaiting designation."

No Pride in AmeriKKKa

This 4th of July marked "independence" day in the USA. In Spokane Washington more than 80 people gathered to demonstrate against police brutality in what was promoted as the 2nd Annual March For Rights. The event was organized by a group called ASAP (Alternative Solutions And Possibilities), a newly formed anarchist group. Local cops used this patriotic holiday to attack the crowd which was peacefully enjoying a picnic, and arrested 18 people. Support needed!
