An #OpSeasonsGreetings message:

Political prisoners always need support, but can you imagine spending the holidays in prison? Please, help us support our jailed Activists, Hacktivists, and Whistle-blowers by brightening up the holidays through writing letters and getting them the things they need at this time.

How Can I Help?

Gifts and letters

There are many ways that everyone can help! Here is a list of some addresses to write to political prisoners. Links to Amazon wish lists and commissary donation funds have been included when available if you’d like to donate to a prisoner’s commissary or send them a book for the holidays.  Links to individual support networks have been included whenever possible if you have questions or want to learn more about these prisoners.

1) To find a prisoner (or multiple prisoners) to write to, simply take a look at this mailing list, or check out lists posted by other groups such as the NYC ABC or Black and Pink.

2) Send your selected prisoner(s) a postcard, card, or letter. Keep in mind that fun things like stickers, glitter, and glue/tape are considered contraband in many facilities. Be creative and find ways to make your cards and letters bright and cheerful without such add-ons.

Please read NYC Anarchist Black Cross’s guidelines for writing to political prisoners and prisoners of war for tips about what to write and what you can and cannot send: http://nycabc.wordpress.com/write-a-letter/

Reach out to a support network

You can also reach out to the support network for the person you are writing to if you are unsure of the guidelines for writing to them.

3) Some suggestions: Prisoners love hearing news, local updates, funny stories, or pretty much anything interesting. They also love photos, so feel free to include some (printed on regular computer paper), or use an approved service like FlikShop at https://flikshop.com/

4) Tweet photos of your holiday cards using the hashtag #OpSeasonsGreetings to help spread the word!

5) Share this with your friends, on social networking, or consider hosting a holiday #OpSeasonsGreetings card event locally!
