Episode 236: We have Sara Falconer & Daniel McGowan back on to talk about the new: 2018 Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners calendar.
The calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal and Toronto, and three political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York State: David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell. The initial project was suggested by Herman, and has been shaped throughout the process by all of our ideas, discussions, and analysis. All of the members of the outside collective are involved in day-to-day organizing work other than the calendar, on issues ranging from refugee and immigrant solidarity to community media to prisoner justice. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer and trans positive position. We are also offering the Calendar for FREE to listeners who purchase a “write political prisoners tote/ 2018 certain days calendar combo” for $15 or who spend over $20 in the Which Side Media Collective Store! #fsd
