(en) US, RAISE A RUCKUS FOR ROB LOS RICOS NOVEMBER 11-13, 2005 www.roblosricos.net

Date Tue, 12 Jul 2005 09:06:08 +0300

Rob los Ricos, aka Rob Thaxton, is a Tejano Chicano anarchist political
prisoner currently serving most 88 months (over 7 years) for throwing a rock
at a cop during the June 18, 1999 Reclaim the Streets celebration turned
police riot in Eugene.
Rob is due to be released late June 2006. We're asking people across the
country and the world to make the weekend of November 11-13, 2005 a day to
support Rob, to celebrate, and to raise needed support money for Rob.
November 11th is the anniversary of the day four anarchists were hung in
Chicago in 1887, despite their obvious innocence and international outcry
for their release. This holiday is generally commemorated on May 1st all
around the world. Rob wants to reclaim this as an anarchist festival day.
And we're asking you to help make it happen!

Plan an event for Rob, to let him know he's not forgotten, and to help raise
needed funds for when he is released from prison. Not just punk shows, but
think creatively! Poetry readings, dance parties, karaoke night, quiz night,
keggers, dinner parties, rummage sales, let your mind go free! Rob is a
whimsical guy, and we're asking folks to do something political and
revolutionary for cripe's sake fun!

So, to recap, ways you can help:
1. Plan a kick ass event Nov. 11-13, or get tapped into the planning already
happening in your area (check out www.roblosricos.net for more information,
or email rob@defenestrator.org) PLEASE CONTACT US AND LET US KNOW IF YOU’RE
PLANNING SOMETHING! We want to create a list and keep track of everything,
and advertise it, so definitely let us know!
2. Send Rob a donation now (anything is better than nothing)
3. Read Rob's writings (His pamphlet Manufacturing Dissent is available on
his website)
4. Spread the word

Rob has spent over 6 years in prison, and he's coming back to no resources.
When you're paroled in Oregon, they open up the gates and let you out with
nothing, not even clothes to change out of your prison garb into. We need
your help to let Rob know he is not forgotten, that the principles he has
struggled for for 30 years and that he will have spent over 7 years in
prison for are still alive.

Donations to Rob should be sent to:
