SUPPORT

Many of the people involved in the Lucasville Uprising face extreme isolation and non-access to the world you and I live in. It is a challenge to those of us on the outside to not let the State's repression keep us from connecting with people who are facing the brunt of a system we all oppose. 

In light of this, here are 6 ways you can support Lucasville Uprising Prisoners.


1. Donate! If you would like your donation to go to a specific person or project, make a note in the donation dialog, or email insurgent.ben@gmail.com.
AMNESTY NOW!



2. Sign on! To both the Lucasville Amnesty Statement and the Petition to End the Death Penalty in Ohio.

3. Write a Letter! Contact the prisoners directly and let them know they are not alone in their struggles. Find out from them what support they need. Find addresses on the contact page.


4. Talk to Your Friends! Start discussions about prisons. Spread the word about the Lucasville Uprising. Use social media, blogs, radio shows, etc. Repost content from this site freely, and contact the prisoners (especially Hasan) if you'd like to interview them, put them on the radio, etc.  Lots more information about the uprising is available in various publications.


5. Host an event! There are a number of different ways you can bring people together to talk about the uprising, the best one is to arrange a screening of D Jones' documentary, The Shadow of Lucasville. We can also arrange for the prisoners or their supporters to speak at events. Some of the prisoners have unusual phone access because of a hunger strike they went on in Jan of 2011, let's make the most of that!  Email insurgent.ben@gmail.com to coordinate.
6. Pack the courts! We'll keep you updated on when and where legal hearings and court dates are. Add yourself to the email list to make sure you get updates.
