As of the time of writing this, anarchist grand jury resistor Jerry Koch has been incarcerated for more than a month and ten days, just for refusing to collaborate with the State. If you aren’t familiar with grand juries or with Jerry’s case, you can read more at jerryresists.net. AK Press stands in solidarity with Jerry and all political prisoners. We have offered to help Jerry’s support committee out by coordinating the effort to get him some much-needed reading material while he is locked up.
Here’s how it works: we’ve gotten a list of titles that Jerry has requested (below). We’ll keep this list updated as we send him books, and as we learn of new requests. If you would like to send a book to Jerry, just order it via the AK Press website and list him as the recipient. As with any order being sent to a prisoner, we will apply a 30% discount to your order after we receive it.
The books Jerry has requested so far are:
-Anarchists Against the Wall: Resisting Occupation and Apartheid in Palestine/Israel
-Haymarket Scrapbook: 25th Anniversary Edition
-Black Flame: The Revolutionary Class Politics of Anarchism and Syndicalism
-On the Justice of Roosting Chickens: Reflections on the Consequences of U.S. Imperial Arrogance and Criminality
-We the Anarchists! A Study of the Iberian Anarchist Federation
-How the Irish Invented Slang: The Secret Language of the Crossroads
-The Case Against Israel
-The Story of the Iron Column: Militant Anarchism in the Spanish Civil War
-Italian Anarchism 1864-1892
-Nestor Makhno, Anarchy’s Cossack: The Struggle for Free Soviets in the Ukraine
-Rage and Reason
Jerry’s address (to use on your order, or to send him other mail) is:
GERALD KOCH #68631-054
MCC NEW YORK
METROPOLITAN CORRECTIONAL CENTER
150 PARK ROW
NEW YORK, NY 10007
We are willing to post book lists for other political prisoners, as well—if you’re on a support committee or working with someone else who is locked up, please get in touch!
