June 9: Sacco & Vanzetti film + letter writing for anarchist prisoners

JUNE 9, 2017
Boxcar Books
408 E. 6th St

For the June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners, we’ll be showing Peter Miller’s 2006 documentary on militant anarchists Sacco & Vanzetti.

The film explores the background to the trail (and eventual murder by the state) of Sacco and Vanzetti, positioning it within its context of widespread state repression against immigrants and radicals, ever-present labor struggles, and militant direct action against the state and capitalism by anarchist insurgents. It’s essential viewing for anyone who wants to look beyond the conventional narrative of Sacco and Vanzetti as simple “victims of the state” and instead understand that they were engaged in war on all forms of state power and economic exploitation.

Afterwards, we’ll write to anarchist prisoners held captive throughout the United States.

We’ll have hundreds of free zines, posters, handbills, and stickers related to June 11th and solidarity with anarchist prisoners.
