About the Never Alone Tour:

It’s 2012. The world is ending. So what are we gonna do? Go on an epic road trip to talk about prisoner support, of course! Because unless we actually make this the last year of their world, our comrades will still be in there the next.

The nationwide Never Alone tour will be crisscrossing the country in April 2012, featuring the usual suspects speaking about long-term anarchist prisoner support. Focusing specifically on the cases of Eric McDavid and Marie Mason, the tour will mark the spots where the events of these cases unfolded. The hope is to bring to
light the facts of these cases, as well as raise awareness and support for Eric and Marie. There will also be strategizing about how to more effectively grow a culture of resistance that can breach the prison walls and sustain long-term anarchist prisoner support.

In January 2006 Eric McDavid was arrested and charged with a single count of conspiracy. He is now serving an almost 20 year sentence for thought-crime. Marie Mason was arrested in March 2008 and charged with an arson at a Michigan State University genetics lab and the arson of logging equipment in Mesick, Michigan.
Marie is now serving a 22 year sentence.

When our friends and loved ones are snatched from us and held captive by the state, we become all too aware that we are never alone. The eyes of the state are always upon us, attempting to silence our voices and still our hands. To keep us from doing
the work we know must be done. We must act despite this.

Because we also know that it is imperative that our friends on the inside know that they, too, are never alone. That we will stand by them throughout their time in prison. That the struggles they were involved in continue on, and that they are empowered to continue on in struggle from inside the prison walls.

And we also know that we can’t do this alone. We need the active support of our communities to give us the strength and courage to struggle for our friends and their freedom.

We are in it for the long haul.

Are you?”


A Compilation of solidarity actions with long term anarchist prisoners Marie Mason and Eric Mcdavid

This kind of campaign doesn’t normally happen in the US and even though most of the actions do not take place within the Us, the fact that the call came from and the campaign was organized here is an interesting strategic development. Solidarity might really mean attack.

Argentina: atms vandalized

Waterloo, Canada: solidarity attack on developer

Peru: arson of a church

Cambridge, UK: bank vandalized

Vantaa, Finland: arson on railway security electronics

Olympia, WA USA: vandalism and sabotage

Guelph, Ontario Canada: developer sabotaged

Russia: series of arson attacks and sabotage
