“The Warrior Wind” Newsletter: First Issue Available Now!

The first issue of "The Warrior Wind," a newsletter against our society of confinement, is out now.
It is available as a .pdf file, to print out and distribute locally, from either of the following two locations:
 http://www.impassionedinsurrection.info/pamphlets/warriorwind1.pdf
 http://www.socialwar.net/main/subversion/warriorwind1.pdf
The February newsletter contents include: "On the Recent Wave of Repression," a look at the Northwest "eco-crime" cases; dispatches from eco-defense prisoner Jeff "Free" Luers; other repression and resistance news (grand juries, Auburn arrests, SHAC 7 trial, Chuk'shon Earth First! activists face sentencing, and "Belgium: Solidarity Against All Borders!"); information about the newsletter project itself; and finally a reprint of Ralph Chaplin's poem "The Warrior Wind."
We encourage you to make this project your own, not only through making copies and circulating the information within, but also by offering us your feedback and writing for future issues.
As repression increases, we believe that it has become more, not less, important for radicals to raise their voices. "The Warrior Wind" newsletter is one small gesture towards the sort of fight-back we desire.
Our first issue is dedicated to the memory of Bill Rodgers.

For a better world—
TWW editors.
