“For Love and Liberty” Letter Writing Night to Support Tom Manning Oct. 23rd



We’ve just received a special order of Tom Manning’s book of paintings and essays, For Love and Liberty. We’re thrilled to carry this book in the store, and to support Tom and the Rosenberg Fund for Children.

Join us for a special letter writing night on Thursday, October 23rd at 7:00 pm to check out the new book, learn more about Tom Manning, and to write him letters of support and letters to the US Parole Board, who he will appear before in November.

If you can’t make it, see below for information about how to write to the parole board to support Tom.

Learn more about the book at:

Political Prisoner Tom Manning is scheduled to see the US Parole Board in November. In a recent letter he asks that people write letters supporting his release on parole. He writes “so if folks can just write their own letters expressing each ones ideas rather than all of them sounding like they read a form letter – so that they put their own voice down on paper.”

Please write a letter to support Tom!

Your letter should reference:
Thomas Manning #10373-016

and be sent to:

U.S. Parole Commission
90 K Street, NE, Third Floor
Washington, D.C. 20530

Please make a copy and send it to:

Chernoh Bah, author of Neocolonialism in West Africa, June 20th

Friday, June 20 at 7pm
Internationalist Books and Community Center

Neocolonialism in West Africa
Chernoh Bah examines modern forms of capitalist colonialism in West Africa from the perspective of an African revolutionary leader and political activist and shows how capitalist corporations and Western nations control the economy and resources of West Africa, rig elections, and promote wars and military coups. He also explores how North American and European capitalist corporations prop up anti-democratic regimes that support Western economic interests in West Africa and how outsiders continue to scramble to control the continent’s natural resources.
