A little note on writing to prisoners: Write on one side of the paper, number your pages, do not use paperclips or even glitter (!!!!!). Use no signs such as the circle A for anarchy, the circle E for earth liberation etc, as these are often classed as "gang related symbols" (i know... fucking ridiculous).

As far as content goes, obviously stay smart and stay cool. Writing "way to go throw that bicycle" or "I smashed that Starbucks on the first night" etc. are obviously bad things to write. However, more subtle things such as details that give insight into any organizational structures should be omitted as well. Trust yourselves to write safe things and when in doubt run things past friends and comrades if you are not 100% sure. Love and rage.
