Volunteer With Prison Art
Volunteer: It takes a lot of work to scan and post artwork,
and to create the credit card and other processes that make
this site function. I am in need volunteers in the Seattle area
to help with the web work, art scanning, and prisoner cor-
respondence. I’ll train volunteers in web work and scanning.
Let me know if you live in the Seattle/Tacoma area and
want more information on how you can help. Thanks.

Definitely check this site out. It’s run by Ed Mead (a friend of mine), member of the George Jackson Brigade, who served 18 years in prison for his acts of armed resistance to government/corporate racism.
Since Ed’s release from prison in 1993 he’s worked tirelessly to support prisoners.

The Horseman. Ghassan Kanafani
Kanafani was born in Akka (Acre), Palestine in 1936. During Al-Nakba, Kanfani and his family were displaced to Lebanon and later to Syria. He then moved to Kuwait and later to Beirut.
Kanafani is a Palestinian novelist, short-story writer, and dramatist. Main themes in his writings are uprootedness, exile, and national struggle. He published several novels and collections of short stories, literary criticism, plays, and historical expositions, including Men in the Sun, All That’s Left to You, Umm Sad, and ‘A`id ila Hayfa.
Kanafani was assassinated on July 8, 1972, by a car bomb planted by Israeli agents. He was posthumously awarded the Lotus Prize for Literature by the Conference of Afro-Asian Writers.
