Daniel McGowan getting out of prison! Come to a benefit in Eugene or Portland

Eco-prisoner Daniel McGowan is getting out of prison in December, and we want to celebrate! There's two benefits happening in Oregon, in Eugene (Nov 23) and Portland (Dec 7). Prison support doesn't end when they walk out the gate. Lets show Daniel how much his old home state still loves him.
Come and celebrate Daniel McGowan's release from prison! Daniel has spent years locked up in a Communication Management Unit, with his communications and contact with loved ones severely limited. It's so exciting that he's getting out! But prisoner support doesn't stop when Daniel walks out the gate. The transition can be a hard time, and we can help make it easier by easing the financial strain. So come along and celebrate with us and show some solidarity with political prisoners!
You can find out more about Daniel's case by visiting www.supportdaniel.org, or by coming along to one of these two events and watching the amazing documentary featuring Daniel, "If A Tree Falls: a Story of the Earth Liberation Front".
