the 2009 Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar
|"It has always been one of our goals in producing Certain Days to inspire organizers to keep on fighting. The calendar is an organizing tool – a fundraiser as well as a medium to spread information – but we also aim to have it be a reminder that we're in this to win. In trying to select the theme for this year's edition of Certain Days, we wanted to focus on this – on the hope and inspiration that is needed to sustain the often daunting day-to-day work of creating a more just society."|

FOCUSING ON: Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War in Canada and the United States. Today's anti-war, anti-globalization and anti-colonial movements are rooted in the history of earlier struggles for justice, including the mass movements of the 60s and 70s. Many of the Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War featured in this calendar were organizers during that period: members of the Black Panther Party, or the American Indian Movement, Puerto Ricans fighting for their homeland, or white anti-racist allies working in solidarity with oppressed peoples. Many of the Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War featured in this calendar have been in prison SINCE THAT TIME - 30 years or more. Yet these prisoners are not relics of past movements, they are still active in their political work, and despite the hardships of organizing in prison, they continue to organize for justice in the present day; justice behind bars and justice on the streets. This calendar is our tribute to them.
