Running Down the Walls

by LA ABCF Saturday, May. 20, 2006 at 11:01 AM PO 11223 Whittier CA 90603

5k run for Political Prisoners this Sunday!

5k Run/Walk for US Political Prisoners and Prisoners

of War


Sunday May 21, 2006

at 9:00 AM


Whittier Narrows Recreation Area

765 N Santa Anita Ave

South El Monte, CA 91733

Run for their lives!

On May 21, 1981, Vol. Patsy O’Hara (INLA) and Vol.

Raymond McCreesh (IRA) died after 61 days on hunger

strike. The men were just two of ten political

prisoners that died for recognition of political

status and for the support of a free and united


On May 21, 2006, twenty-five years after the death of

these two martyrs, the Los Angeles chapter of the

Anarchist Black Cross Federation (LA-ABCF) will be

hosting 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

Boston, MA, USP Atwater, Mound Correctional Facility

in Michigan, 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
