Action

This page serves as the DGR Action calendar, with updates about action opportunities and upcoming events. For resistance to be effective and make a material difference in the real world, we need to come out in force and dedication whenever and wherever possible! If you know of anything going on in or around Colorado, let us know and we’ll put it on the page.

FEBRUARY 7th – Political Prisoner/P.O.W. Letter Writing & Potluck 7pm @ Left Hand Books in Boulder (1200 Pearl Street  Boulder, CO 80302) Join us for our monthly potluck dinner & political prisoner letter writing night. This month will be centered around sending seasonal greetings in the spirit of solidarity to our incarcerated comrades. We will provide all of the supplies necessary, including an array of art that has been generated from within the DGR community where we can compose our messages of support.  Refreshments will be provided.

Why is DGR committed to writing letters of support to political prisoners/prisoners of war? Activists and organizers captured and imprisoned by the State are still a part of the movement; they are unbroken warriors whose stories should be celebrated. We recognize that there is a war going on, and this war is not one sided. Kept behind bars for the strength of their convictions, letters and cards of support may be the only contact prisoners have with the larger movement. By corresponding with them and telling their stories, we not only normalize resistance and build networks of solidarity and support for those imprisoned, we also actively help to create a culture of resistance. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate, whether you’ve been writing prisoners for years or are a first-timer.
