Originated by LA ABCF years ago, Running Down the Walls has grown into a phenomenon, as runners in multiple north american cities and locales, and on both sides of the walls, act in concert, step by step, to exercise commitment in solidarity and raise funds for the Warchest Program and other local causes. The Warchest is a unique program, run by the Anarchist Black Cross Federation, that sends bimonthly stipends to political prisoners and prisoners of war with little other means of support.
The 2013 run/jog/walks will take place on September 1st!!! Get ready to participate, donate, or sponsor a runner, wherever you are.

UPDATE: RELEASED BACK TO HALFWAY HOUSE– SEE UPDATE TO NYC ABC LINK BELOW.
Daniel McGowan used to be a political prisoner who did most of his bid in communications management units because of his political speech. He was in halfway house, halfway in prison, halfway in outside life and putting his halfway outside life together and enjoying halfway freedom. Just after publishing an article on Huffington Post (Court Documents Prove I Was Sent to Communications Management Units (CMU) for my Political Speech), when we thought we were almost done with this ordeal, Daniel was yanked back into federal prison today, April 4, 2013— which only proves his fucking point.
Under the united states, whether you are all the way in prison, halfway in prison, supervised by prisoncrats, or even like me and privileged enough to be in minimum custody out here in the world, you are under a system that warehouses people for social control and for political repression and it seeks to maintain its power. Until this system is overturned, it will always devise special units and inane rules to fuck with the lives of those who dare to speak out. Do not let them struggle alone.
Write Daniel. Support political prisoners.
“It’s hard enough to transition from life in prison to a “normal” life back home in New York. It’s especially traumatic to then be ripped from that, and put back behind bars. Please consider writing him a letter:” (Will Potter)
