Join the Toronto Anarchist Black Cross for our monthly night of conversation and letter writing.
This month we'll be writing to local prisoners including wrongfully convicted anarchist prisoner Nyki Kish, and recently sentenced American G20 prisoners Richard Morano, Kevin Chianella, and Joel Bitar. We will also be writing to Rebecca Rubin - who was extradited from Canada and recently sentenced to 5 years for Earth Liberation Front-related charges.
Accessibility: This child-friendly event is FREE and a vegan meal will be provided. Beit Zatoun is two steps from street level and washrooms are located in the basement. A mobile ramp is available for the entrance stairs.
Next month, join us to write to Palestinian prisoners (date TBC).

The Committee for the Defence of the Iranian People's Rights (CODIR) has called upon the labour and trade movement internationally to take urgent action in defence of Iranian workers and trade unionists who are engaged in a difficult struggle for better pay and conditions of work.
CODIR regards the current period as an important opportunity to put effective pressure upon the government of President Hassan Rouhani, who was elected last year on a promise of reform inside Iran. Since his election Rouhani has tried to show a different face internationally, resulting in the interim agreement on nuclear inspections.
