DESCRIPTION:
ABCF’s Annual Running Down The Walls 5K Run

www.abcf.net



Every year Political Prisoners look forward to the day that we all collectively Run Down The Walls together. These events link us forever in struggle, together in solidarity we all set out on our paths with the same intentions. We jog for justice, we walk for peace, and we run for our comrade’s freedom. This event (while only metaphorically liberating) is insurmountably important to those behind the walls, they need to know that we are here and we not only stand with them but we will run with them.



We have set the date for this year’s run on Sunday June 3rd 2018. June is coming up quickly and we need to stretch our legs and warm our muscles for the run that has called to us in our sleep for the last nine months. This run means so much to so many people, and now this early summer run will be the first time we will be holding it in June and we hope this time of year allows more of our friends and comrades to make the time to gather with us. We jog for justice, we walk for peace, and we run for our comrades’ freedom.



Support the Struggle:

We must remember that many of those arrested in the past or present are not far from us. Many of them were and are community and labor activists, queer, and environmental activists; people who decided to speak out against various forms of oppression and paid the price of their freedom for their actions. We must remember that anyone of these people could have at one time stood beside us in a demonstration, at a speak-out, or even at an organizing meeting. At any given moment it could be us who finds ourselves in this situation, so it is imperative that we ensure that a strong enough community of support exists for these people as well as ourselves. The strength of our movement is determined by how much we support our fallen comrades. As Anarchist and former POW Ojore Lutalo says, \"Any Movement that does not support its political internees, is a sham movement.\" So please help us, help them! Help us help you!



Be a runner:

We are asking people or groups who are running to collect as many sponsor for the run as possible. Remember the money received is going to help imprisoned comrades who need your help. The person who collects the most amount of funds will be given a prize for their involvement and dedication to helping our fallen comrades.



Sponsor a runner:

This can be done through a flat donation to the runner of your choice, each flyer is also a sponsor sheet. We ask from those who wish not to run to actively support those who are running in hopes of collecting as much for our comrades as possible.



Organize:

Get involved in the planning of Running Down the Walls, if you are interested in attending or hosting a run in your town, you have time to get it organized, please contact us at: www.abcf.net, or la@abcf.net and let us know that you are planning a RDTW and we will help out in any way we can.



Solidarity:

Every year we run in solidarity, prisoners and supporters of political prisoners organize solidarity runs with Running Down the Walls. In Sync with each other, we will collectively pound the pavement with our feet and bike tires as we exhibit our strength and stamina as examples of our tireless effort to free our imprisoned comrades. In past years we had runs all over the country and sometimes overseas.



Registration fees:, preregistration (Make checks or money orders out to Tim Fasnacht)
