It also contains plenty of information on issues affecting all prisoners, ranging from control units, medical neglect, art and writing by prisoners, organizing by prisoners, parenting from prison, the death penalty and plenty more. It also contains commentary on the "War on Terrorism" and solidarity with liberation struggles in Palestine and elsewhere. The calendar itself was designed by New York political prisoners and long time activists David Gilbert, Herman Bell and Robert Seth Hayes.
In addition to noting politically significant events, the calendar notes Jewish, Muslim and Pagan holidays. The only drawback to this otherwise great calendar is that it does not denote U.S. state and federal holidays when courts are closed or there is no mail delivery, which is necessary to calculate court and mailing deadlines, among other things. 8-1/2 x 11 inches when folded, the calendar is bound with two discreet staples, which should allow it into most prisons.
Proceeds from the calendar go to benefit the NY State Task Force on Political Prisoners, Addameer Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association in Palestine, the Victory Gardens Project and the Native Youth Movement in Canada. The calendar costs -$15.00 for non prisoners and $9.00 for prisoners. If you are looking for a good prisoner rights calendar, this is it.
