Oct 17, 2007
Focus: Peace
Action Request: Visit - in person
Location: New York, United States
What:
Benefit and awareness-raising for Andy Stepanian

Where:
1087 Broadway (between Lawton and Dodworth Streets,
above Goodbye Blue Monday), Bushwick, Brooklyn

When:
8 pm, Friday, October 19th

Who:
Rabia (Anarchopunk)
The Hungry Brothers (2-piece post-punk liberation
music)
Hipster Holocaust (Political Hardcore Punk)
Oogle Orphanage (Jacques calls it pop)
R-tronika (Underground Latin Electronica)
DJ Suggested D (Whatever keeps your body movin'

Cost: Well, it is a benefit, so it'll cost you between
$5 and $7, sliding scale to get in the door. One less
pack of Parliaments might just save your life, anyway,
so it's a bargain all around.

Why:
Just over a year ago, Andy reported to the
Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. And
while he sits in a prison cell in North Carolina, far
away from family and friends, we're trying to make
sure that folks in the communities he was most active
don't forget about him or his co-defendants,
collectively known as the SHAC 7.

Directions:
By train, take the JMZ to Myrtle and walk down
Broadway toward Ditmars Street (away from Melrose
Street). Once you cross Lawton Street, look for the
spot on your right. Alternately, take the J to
Kosciusko and walk down Broadway, toward DeKalb Avenue
(away from Kossuth Place)-- 1087 Will be on your left.

By bike, cross over the Williamsburg Bridge and
continue to travel southeast on Broadway until you
reach 1087-- it's a snap!

Bring your appetite and thirst, because there will be
food and drinks! And there'll be plenty for the
vegans, the sober, and maybe even both, if there is
such a thing! Get there early and stay late. We'll see
you there!

Even if you can't make it to the benefit, write Andy a
letter. His address is:

Andrew Stepanian
26399-050
FCI Butner Medium II
Federal Correctional Institution
Post Office Box 1500
Butner, North Carolina 27509
