Proceeds from Certain Days
Certain Days is a fundraiser. The proceeds from Certain Days 2012 will be divided among these groups:
- The New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners
- Six Nations Land Defenders Legal Defence Fund
The New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners is dedicated to winning the release of political prisoners in New York prisons. All but one of these seven prisoners are past members of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army and have spent about 30 years in prison. The Task Force includes representatives of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, New Afrikan Liberation Front, Jericho Movement and Resistance in Brooklyn.

Addameer Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association is a Palestinian non-governmental, civil institution which focuses on human rights issues (Addameer is Arabic for conscience). Established in 1992 by a group of activists interested in human rights, the center’s activities focus on offering support for Palestinian prisoners, advocating the rights of political prisoners, and working to end torture through monitoring, legal procedures and solidarity campaigns.
Six Nations Land Defenders Legal Defence Fund provides support to front line Haudenosaunee land defenders who have been criminalized and targeted by the state. At Six Nations, the last six years have seen harsh criminalization of Haudenosaunee Land Defenders. Dozens of people have faced criminal charges and several have served substantial time in jail. The fund fund is administered and coordinated by the April 28 Coalition which includes organisers from Six Nations as well as established allies from various unions and activist organisations. Contact the April 28 Coalition (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information, or donate directly at http://bit.ly/K39HCN.
"Since 2006 there has been a particularly insidious wave of criminalisation and demonisation aimed at Haudenosaunee people who are asserting the sovereignty of the Six Nations Confederacy and defending the land. The tactics used in everyday policing operations against Six Nations, like with other Indigenous nations, are exactly the type of oppressive state security that the rest of the southern Ontario “activist community” got a taste of around the G20." - Alex Hundert, G20 political prisoner
