Support Maria & Ed Running for Bristol Anarchist Black Cross

admin Uncategorized

Please support this fundraiser!


We are running Downton Half Marathon nr. Salisbury on 29th November (details here – you can come and cheer on the day if you like / have no life) to raise money for Bristol Anarchist Black Cross. ABC do very important work that cannot continue with support.

For the uninitiated:

The Anarchist Black Cross was originated in Tsarist Russia to organise aid for political prisoners. In the late 1960s the organisation resurfaced in Britain, where it first worked to aid prisoners of the Spanish resistance fighting the dictator Franco’s police. Now it has expanded and groups are found in many countries around the world. We support anarchist and other class struggle prisoners, fund-raise on behalf of prisoners in need of funds for legal cases or otherwise, and organise demonstrations of solidarity with imprisoned anarchists and other prisoners. – Brighton ABC

Bristol ABC aim to practically support prisoners by:

  • writing letters, sending books and magazines, and where possible or needed financial contributions to those inside;
  • publicising specific prisoners cases, campaigns and struggles;
  • supporting and publicising other individuals, campaigns and resources involved in prisoner solidarity and anti-prison work

So please donate if you can. The page will stay live until Monday 30th November.
