Bonus Repression!

Oh yeah.

M1 refers to political prisoners in the United States. At about the same time as he was delivering his speech, US anarchist Ojore Lutalo was being arrested in La Junta, Colorado while on on his way home (New Jersey) from the Los Angeles Anarchist Bookfair. Lutalo’s arrest is allegedly the result of the contents of a telephone conversation he had while on a train. He has been released on bail and appears in court later this week.

Ojore is out and amongst friends
January 29, 2010

Ojore was bailed out at 9:30pm last night and is now among friends and comrades in Denver. Thanks to everyone that helped make that possible.

Bond was posted at the cost of $4,500. This cost has been fronted by various amazing folks from across the country, but much of this money is being loaned. Ojore is in major need of donations to help pay these loans back!

The Philadelphia Anarchist Black Cross Federation is accepting donations for this effort. Donations can be sent via paypal to: timABCF[at]aol[dot]com.

Ojore’s court date will be February 5th. Urgent support is needed as the media is already starting a major war against Ojore and painting him as a terrorist operative. We need lots of support for him and this case, as it will become a major case in the state’s battle against the anarchist movement. Denver ABCF will be organizing a car pool so supporters can pack the courtroom to show solidarity with Ojore on the 5th. If you want a ride or can offer a vehicle for this effort, please e-mail Denver ABCF at: denverabc[at]rocketmail[dot]com.
