Update on Donations for Bail

Hi all,

We have some updates regarding the individuals who were arrested at the Rally at the Waterwall. All 8 of the individuals have been bonded out, though one has yet to be released and we only have information regarding the cost of bail for 7 of those individuals. Overall, bail costs reached $1530 for those 7 individuals. We have received around $850 of donations so far, but still have a ways to go. So, if you haven’t had a chance, donations are still needed! Furthermore, these individuals have to return to court and will have to pay court costs and fines, so every little bit helps. Again, all funds go DIRECTLY to these costs, nothing is funneled out.

Thank you so much to those who have already donated. This is what solidarity looks like!

Prisoner Zines for sale! “The System that Holds us Captive”

Houston ABC members recently attended a release party for the first volume of a local zine called “The System that Holds us Captive”. The zine focuses on mental health issues and systematic emotional abuse in the prison system, featuring writing and artwork from four Texas prisoners and one person who was formerly incarcerated in Arkansas. The zine project as a whole aims to bring attention to the way the prison system destroys individuals and families, and harms society on a larger level. The men in this issue added their voices to a dialogue around prisons which almost never includes the voices of those imprisoned, and future issues hope to include a broader spectrum of people who have been affected by the prison system. All funds from purchases go to support the people involved.

To buy zines or get in touch with the publisher,

find the zine on facebook here:

Please help the family of a man murdered by Denver Police!

The Go Fund Me we have included ¬†has detailed information on this horrific murder. We hope that anyone who can contribute to help this man’s family will give what they can!

“On July 2, 2014 20 year old Ryan Ronquillo was repeatedly shot by Denver Police in the parking lot of the Romero Family Funeral Home in Northwest Denver during a funeral service….Police allege that they were in the process of serving a warrant for “auto-theft and other felonies”, and that Ryan “started to back the car in the direction of officers”. Statements from witnesses are at odds with the police statements. Witnesses at the scene desribe a horrific chaotic mess …

Police claim that they had been following him all day in an effort to serve the warrant. They claim that they chose the funeral, where dozens of people, including many small children were in attendance, because it proved “tactically beneficial”. In the end, instead of a peaceful arrest anywhere else, people who were already in the process of mourning one lost youth had to witness the murder of another.”

No Impunity For Murderous Police! Justice for Ryan Ronquillo!
