Please be part of this global day of remembrance this December 21, in honor of William Rodgers.

Letter writing to political prisoners and vegan potluck
Hosted by Denis Hennelly, Institute for Critical Animal Studies, and Carol Glasser.

We will provide information about political prisoners, paper, pens, envelopes, and stamps. You just need to bring one vegan dish to share (or just yourself if you are short on time or money).

Who is William C. Rogers?
On December 21st, 2005 earth and animal activist William C. Rodgers died in jail. He was targeted in a government operation called "Operation Backfire" in which the FBI sought to imprison earth and animal liberators. Bill Rogers chose death over living life in a cage. In memory of his life, and in celebration that another Operation Backfire defendant, Daniel McGowen, was released from jail this week, join us for a prisoner support/ letter writing party.

"To my friends and supporters to help them make sense of all these events that have happened so quickly: Certain human cultures have been waging war against the Earth for millennia. I chose to fight on the side of bears, mountain lions, skunks, bats, saguaros, cliff rose and all things wild. I am just the most recent casualty in that war. But tonight I have made a jail break—I am returning home, to the Earth, to the place of my origins."
~excerpt from William Rogers goodbye note



You might also get together with others on Dec 21. In honor of William Rodgers who took his life in Jail on 2005 during the Green Scarce? Something small with 5 people even is good. A small candlelight vigil for 15 minutes on a corner would be good. If you do please contact please contact Kim Socha at kimberlyannsocha@gmail.com in order to add your event to this global page. Thank you !
