a12 – June 11 International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason and Long-term Anarchist Prisoners

Greetings friends! Spring and summer are just around the corner, and with the changing seasons, another June 11th! If you’re unfamiliar, June 11th is the International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason and Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners. June 11th is a day to gather, celebrate, and build continual support for Marius Mason, an anarchist serving a 22-year prison sentence for actions in defense of the Earth; as well as for other anarchist and anti-authoritarian prisoners across the world. As prisons everywhere work to tighten their grip of terror and control, keeping prisoners in our minds, hearts and actions, and keeping them connected to the world outside the prison walls is a great tool to combat the isolation and loneliness of being locked away. Every year, people across the globe act in solidarity, or organize fundraising events in their area to socialize, spread stories, and raise funds for Marius. Visit June11.org to learn more about Marius Mason, the other prisoners we support, and how to get involved!
