Produced by activists in Montreal and New York City, with the input and guidance of political prisoners David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell.

Both countries officially deny that they have political prisoners, just as the South African government claimed that Nelson Mandela was not a prisoner of war in that country until internal and international pressure won his release.

Funds are being shared between the New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners,All of Us or None, the Mid-Winter Harvest Program and No One Is Illegal (Montreal). This project is a collaboration between outside organizers and U.S. Political Prisoners Herman Bell, Robert Seth Hayes and David Gilbert.

In the words of the Calendar committee

The calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organisers in Montreal and NYC, and 3 Political Prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York state. The initial project was suggested by Political Prisoner Herman Bell, and has been shaped throughout the process by all of our ideas, discussions, and analysis. The outside collectives compile, edit and produce the calendar; and throughout the process, we seek the input and guidance of the 3 Political Prisoners: Robert Seth Hayes, Herman Bell, and David Gilbert. All of the members of the outside collectives are involved in day-to-day organising work other than the calendar, on issues ranging from Palestinian solidarity to gender-based violence to prisoner justice. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer and trans positive position.
