LA ABCF will be hosting a 5k run to raise money for political prisoners and local community groups on August 23rd. The event is also designed to honor and remember the anarchist martyrs, Sacco and Vanzetti.
Run for their lives!
Support United States Political Prisoners and Prisoners-of-War at the 7th RUNNING DOWN THE WALLS!
On Saturday, August 23, 2008 join in the community effort to support and raise awareness of those who have been targeted and punished for their political actions and beliefs.
RUNNING DOWN THE WALLS is a 5k non-competitive run/walk/bike in the beautiful Whittier Narrows Regional Park. Registered participants will receive food and entertainment and there will be water available at rest stops along the route. Registration entry fees are: for pre-registration, for registration at the run site. Supporters who wish not to run, walk or bike may make a donation. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. Further games, entertainment, and speakers will continue after the run and will last until 2:00 p.m.
Proceeds from this 5K run will benefit the ABCF Warchest. Founded in 1994, the program has provided consistent and reliable financial aid to Political Prisoners held within the US prison system. Since its creation, it has raised over ,000 for these prisoners and will continue in these efforts. A portion of the proceeds will also go to El Centro Cultural de Mexico, a community center in Santa Ana dedicated to developing a cultural and educational bridge that brings together a variety of cultural projects from Mexico, Central and South America. Proceeds will also go to the Committee to Free Chip Fitzgerald, a support group dedicated to the release of Romaine 'Chip' Fitzgerald. Chip is the longest held Black Panther political prisoner in the United States.
In the previous years, we have had solidarity runs in several cities and over ten US prisons, including USP Leavenworth and Walpole State Prison. For this year, we currently have solidarity runs in various prisons and cities including: Humboldt (CA), New York (NY), Tempe (AZ), Tucson (AZ), Missoula (MT), Inez (KY), Walpole (MA), Navasota (TX). We hope to add more cities and prisons in the coming weeks.
This year’s Running Down the Walls is taking place on August 23rd in honor of former political prisoners, Sacco and Vanzetti. On this day in 1927, both men were executed by the state of Massachusetts for being anti-war, immigrants and anarchists. Today, there are over 150 Political Prisoners and Prisoners-of-War in the United States. These prisoners have been unfairly incarcerated while fighting for social justice and self-determination. They are our generation’s Sacco and Vanzetti. Show them you care for and support their efforts by RUNNING DOWN THE WALLS!
When: August 23, 2008 9:30am-2pm
Where: Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, 750 Santa Anita Ave South El Monte, CA 91733-4300
