Run for their lives!

On May 21, 2006 the Los Angeles chapter of the

Anarchist Black Cross Federation (LA-ABCF) will be

sponsoring the 5th Running Down the Walls. This event

is a 5k non-competitive run/jog/walk through the

Whittier Narrows Regional Park. The goal of this event

is to raise awareness and funds for the numerous

political prisoners currently locked up in the United

States. These are prisoners imprisoned for their

participation in liberation and social justice

movements in North America. Their status is distinct

from social prisoners because their imprisonment and

sentencing was due to their political involvement.

Because LA-ABCF is a grassroots political organization

we rely on donations to build and organize events to

raise the level of awareness around the issue of

political prisoners. There are a number of ways which

you can help make this event successful:

Participate in the 5k run. Each runner pays to

register for the run.

Sponsor one or more of the runners directly and pay

their registration fees.

Volunteer during the day of the event

Help organize and outreach for the run

Make a donation to LA-ABCF.

All of the proceeds will be divided between the

Warchest program of the ABCF and a local community

project, Growing Healthy. The Warchest is a program

designed to send monthly checks to political prisoners

and Prisoners of War who have been receiving

insufficient or no financial support during their

imprisonment. The program was initiated in November

1994 and has raised over ,000 since its inception.

The second program is a New Panther Vanguard sponsored

program known as Growing Healthy. It is an educational

gardening program at Normandie Avenue Elementary and

John Muir Middle Schools. The goal is to increase

long-term health outcomes by introducing student and

community participants to farm fresh produce, and

educating them about nutrition. It also teaches

sustainable organic farming skills that can be used at


In the previous years, the LA-ABCF has had solidarity

runs in several cities and over seven US prisons,

including USP Leavenworth and Walpole State Prison.

This year, we have confirmed Solidarity runs in USP

Atwater, and two in Walpole State Prison. More runs

are soon to be announced.

Food, refreshments, and entertainment will be provided

on the day of the event for anyone who attends the

event. The ABCF wished to make this event as

successful as possible and can only achieve this with

your support. Show the political prisoners and

prisoners of War show you care by RUNNING DOWN THE
