Annual Holiday Appeal for Class-War Prisoners

Sunday, December 15, 2013 - 00:00 to 03:00

Free Mumia Abu-Jamal!  Free Leonard Peltier!

This year's Holiday Appeal marks the 28th year of the Partisan Defense Committee's program of sending monthly stipends as an expression of solidarity to those imprisoned for standing up to racist capitalist repression and imperialist depredation.

This program revived a tradition initiated by the International Labor Defense under James P. Cannon, its founder and first secretary (1925-1928). The PDC sends stipends to 21 class-war prisoners.

All proceeds from the Holiday Appeals will go to the Class-War Prisoners Stipend Fund.

This is not charity but an elementary act of solidarity with those imprisoned for their opposition to racist capitalism and imperialist depredations.

FREE ALL CLASS-WAR PRISONERS!

DOWN WITH RACIST REPRESSION OF NATIVE PEOPLES!

AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL!

For more information, contact the PDC at (416) 593-4138.

The PDC is a class-struggle, non-sectarian legal and social defense organization which champions cases and causes in the interest of the whole of the working people. This purpose is in accordance with the political views of the Trotskyist League/Ligue trotskyste.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
