SUPPORT OUR LIVING SOLDIERS - SUPPORT OJORE LUTALO

Long-time New Afrikan Anarchist Prisoner of War, Ojore Lutalo was set to max out after 26 years of imprisonment at New Jersey State Prison and had an exit interview and receiving a release date of December 25, 2008. Ojore is now being told his release date is October 23, 2009! They did two sets of calculations for his work credits/good time, going back to his earlier conviction in 1970’s., which he was paroled from but violated in 1982. Bonnie Kerness said that Ojore was really optimistic about getting out this year given that he had the release date on paper and the exit interview but that he’s a realist about the NJ DOC and how they operate. While his new release date is now October of 2009, he can continue to earn good time/work credits and get it down to an August 2009 release date.

“Here we remain, yesterday’s urban guerillas, abandoned in captivity” – Ojore Lutalo

Ojore Lutalo is locked down is prison for fighting for the people and for revolution. It’s our revolutionary duty to ensure Ojore has all the support he needs when hits the streets! We must support him and we must continue the struggle for freedom for all of oppressed and disenfranchised people of color.

Philadelphia Autonomist / Anti-Authoritarian / Anarchist People of Color (APOC) are calling on all APOC and all oppressed and disenfranchised people of color who want to be free to show our love and support (and raise a little money) for our brother Ojore Lutalo this February 2009. We’re calling for the month of February, traditionally known as “Black History Month,” to be Black Liberation “Month”. APOC and other like-minded radical people of color are encouraged to organize a month of political education, revolutionary events and benefits for Ojore Lutalo and Black Liberation in your hoods, communities and regions.

Event and benefit ideas can include but are not limited to: revolutionary poetry and music shows; political movie screenings; black liberationist speakers; banner drops, stencils, wheatpasting, graffiti in solidarity with Ojore; community potlucks and discussions; and much more.

All funds, by check or money order, payable to TIM FASNACHT, can be sent to:

Philadelphia ABCF / P.O. Box 42129 / Philadelphia, PA 19101
