Lynn and Laurie Arbeiter at 10 year anniversary of Women in Black/We Will Not Be Silent at Whitney museum NYC on March 18, 2016.
Thank you all for running and congratulations to the WBAI members who saw right through the stuff those other folks were slinging.
Lynne lead with 482 first place votes. Their top vote-getter received 189 votes.
King, John, Ralph and Pauline were also elected, while Dacio is first runner-up and Eugene is fourth runner-up.
Janet Coleman was term-limited on December 22, 2015 and our Vajra Kilgour inherited the year remaining in her term as the bylaws require. The ACE-Indy crew are claiming that the staff runner-up from the new election should get Coleman’s seat.
Lynne and Ralph sent the message below to the Bureau of Prisons, demanding Leonard Peltier receive immediate medical attention. Send your own message by going here: http://www.bop.gov/inmates/concerns.jsp
WE are concerned about Leonard’s medical care
WE URGE BOP to engage a qualified surgeon to do this and that Leonard receive appropriate aftercare in hospital and appropriate rehabilitation and palliative care
We hardly need to remind you that Leonard Peltier is internationally regarded and is a Leader of native Americans and all progressive people here in the US
Lynne may not be able to join, but wanted to let everyone know about this event:
WHAT: Noise Demo Against the PIC, for the Liberation of PPs + POWs
On the noisiest night of the year in New York City, come help us remind folks locked up that they are not alone. NYC Anarchist Black Cross, in response to an international call for noise demonstrations outside of prisons, is asking folks to join us outside of the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan. Come, not to appeal to authority, speak truth to power, or any other contrivance, but rather to stand arm in arm with comrades and show direct solidarity to those on the other side of the wall.
The state, writ large, is targeting anarchists all across the United States and abroad. This will be both protest and celebration. To keep the cold at bay, comrades will again be on hand with hot cocoa to keep the vocal cords nice and warm.
The Campaign To Bring Mumia Home
Dec 9th, 2015
We have a rare, one-time opportunity to get Mumia the medical attention he desperately needs. Please join us in and outside of the court in Scranton, PA on Friday, December 18. A bus and caravans are leaving from New York and Philadelphia.
US Federal District Court Judge Robert Mariani will conduct am extensive public hearing on Mumia’s medical crisis and he has asked for a testimony from Mumia. Credit for this victory is due in no small part to the public outcry.
Our attorneys and the attorneys of Department of Corrections will present arguments.
Our attorneys will argue that Mumia has the right to immediate life-saving treatment for his chronic and active Hepatitis C.
The other side will insist that treatment be withheld until the final stages of the condition. In other words, until it’s too late to save him.
A legal victory in Mumia’s case will also be a victory for the other 10,000 PA prisoners afflicted by Hep C who have filed a class action suit.
Bus and caravans will leave from New York on
Fri, December 18 at 5:45AM sharp
