Certain Days is a fundraiser. The proceeds from Certain Days 2011 will be divided among these groups:
* THE FREEDOM ARCHIVES
* THE NEW YORK STATE TASK FORCE ON POLITICAL PRISONERS
THE FREEDOM ARCHIVES is a vital resource for documenting, preserving and promoting the history of radical movements. The archives contains over 10,000 hours of audio and video tapes chronicling the progressive history of the Bay Area, the United States, and international solidarity movements from the late 1960s to the mid-1990s.
The collection includes weekly news/poetry/music programs broadcast on several educational radio stations; in-depth interviews and reports on social and cultural issues; diverse activist voices; original and recorded music, poetry, original sound collages; and an extensive La Raza collection. The Archives features
speeches of movement leaders and community activists, protests and demonstrations, cultural currents of
rebellion and resistance. This oral history is available in a searchable database and the public can download
programs and clips. The Freedom Archives is also committed to producing media to educate about
the injustices of mass and political imprisonment as well as shedding light on the long history of resistance
and liberation. freedomarchives.org
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. addameer.org
