June 11th is the International Day of Solidarity with All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners


Don't forget your friends, family, and comrades behind bars. As many of you know, even the smallest act of kindness can make a huge difference in the brutally bleak day-to-day existence of those trapped within the prison system.

In solidarity with June 11th and in the memory of Stuart Christie, we're offering a 50% discount on all books sent to political prisoners or to books through bars programs.

Use coupon code PRISON on our website for the 50% discount. This coupon code will only expire when all prisons and police are abolished, so please use it any time you want to send books to anyone locked up. Please provide the full address and any identification numbers in the shipping fields. Let us know any special instructions in the order comments. See more things to keep in mind below and the 2021 call-out from June11.org.

Find prisoner addresses and resources from June 11th, Certain Days, Prisoner Solidarity, Anarchist Black Cross, Fight Toxic Prisons, Alliance for Global Justice, Prisoner Advocacy Network, the Ella Baker Center, the National Lawyers Guild, and others.

You can also donate your order to any books through bars programs such as the Prisoners Literature Project:

Please keep in mind that as institutions of punishment, most prisons will seek to find reasons to refuse items sent to inmates. So, with that in mind, try to choose titles that you think will stand a chance of actually getting inside. For example, while it is a great book, Black Mask & Up Against the Wall Motherfucker! is almost guaranteed to be refused entry. Also, if you are sending a book to an institution with whom you already have experience, please let us know if there are any specific requirements for that prison in the comments field of the order, and we will do our beat to accommodate them (i.e. some do not allow padded envelopes, tape, etc). As a general rule, unless instructed otherwise, PM Press ships all orders sent to prisons in a padded envelope but without tape or any other “extras” (free zines, stickers, brochures, etc) and they are rarely refused on grounds of “improper packaging”. Lastly, please let us know if you would like your personal information removed from the invoice that must be included with each order. It is not a problem to keep the sender anonymous if desired.

We know all this often seems like a lot of hassle, but it really can mean a great deal to those locked inside. Knowing that one is is cared for and not forgotten is a strengthening gift to receive.

"Against another year of state encroachment, against the restriction of free movement under the auspices of “safety,” against the continued brutalization of our friends in prison, we call for a renewal of solidarity on June 11, 2021: International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners. For 17 years, June 11th has been an occasion for celebration, mourning, and revolt. It has been a moment to breathe, to remember those fallen and those in cages, to remind ourselves of why we remain committed to the Beautiful Idea of anarchism. Through our letters, demonstrations, fundraising, and solidarity attacks we keep the beacon lit for those who have given years of their lives for their conviction that the State is a horror against which we must wager our lives." –June11.org
