Daniel McGowan "release" party in NYC and beyond

Posted December 7, 2012 by k_c_ in Events


Daniel McGowan is a Brooklyn-born environmental and social justice activist, political prisoner and the subject of the Oscar-nominated documentary film, If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front. Family & Friends of Daniel McGowan have marked the anniversary of Daniel's arrest on December 7, 2005, with a variety of events in the past.

This December, Daniel is finally getting released from prison and coming to a halfway house in Brooklyn. To celebrate, we are having a straight up PARTY.

Please come join our celebration the evening of Friday, December 7, 2012, 7:00-11:00 pm at The Commons.

We'll have music, snacks, and drinks, and lots of fun holiday surprises. Whether you're a long-time supporter or joining us for the first time, you're more than welcome and you don't want to miss it! We are accepting cash donations and gift cards. (see below)

Come and celebrate Daniel McGowan's release from prison!

Daniel has spent years locked up in a Communication Management Unit, with his communications and contact with loved ones severely limited. It's so exciting that he's getting out! But prisoner support doesn't stop when Daniel walks out the gate. The transit ion can be a hard time, and we can help make it easier by easing the financial strain.
