Free the Land!

Free the Land!

This week we're focusing on Ronald Reed, a former member of the Black United Front, who was convicted of the 1970 shooting of a St. Paul police officer. Twenty-five years after the killing, Reed was arrested and convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first degree-murder in relation to crimes that he likely did not commit. He is serving Life in prison. Reed is a former 60s civil rights activist. In 1969, Reed was also among the students at St. Paul Central High School who demanded Black history courses and organized actions against racist teachers. He was also instrumental in helping to integrate college campuses in Minnesota. During this period, Reed began to look toward revolutionary theory and began to engage in political street theater with other young black revolutionaries in the city of St. Pau. For more information on Ronald Reed, check out  http://www.abcf.net/prisoners/reed.htm .

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about a Political Prisoner or POW or group of prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to the political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence.
