Free All Political Prisoners Calendar 2007


the 2007 Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar This year’s theme, which was suggested by David, is on the broad topic of “immigration” – inspired by the mass demonstrations in May 2006 and embracing many struggles, from Chicano liberation in the souther United States to Indigenous resistance in Canada to the targeting of immigrants and refugees from draconian “security” measures.

Produced by a new collecive in Montreal, with the input and guidance of political prisoners David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell.

FOCUSING ON: Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War in Canada and the United States. 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.

All funds raised by Calendar Commitee will go to direct support of political prisoners and anti-imperialist struggles. Funds are being shared between the New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners, No One Is Illegal – Kingston and Addameer (a Palestinian Prisoners Suppoert and Human Rights Association). 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 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.
