Our comrade, political prisoner Eric King is in need of solidarity. Eric has been held in solitary confinement at FCI Englewood awaiting trial on an assault charge since August 2019. He is raising funds for his legal defense fund and it is slow-going as most people are dealing with COVD-19 related stress and costs. Please donate if you can at https://fundrazr.com/e1cKo1
Eric King is an imprisoned parent, artist, poet, and partner who needs support defending himself as he faces serious federal charges from the Bureau of Prisons (BOP).
Eric is currently serving a ten year sentence in BOP for Use of Explosive Materials to Commit Arson. On September 11, 2014, Eric threw two molotov cocktails and a hammer through a window of an unoccupied Kansas City congressional building. Eric was charged in the federal court in Kansas City; in 2016 he accepted a non-cooperating guilty plea and a mandatory minimum 10-year federal sentence for the case. As part of his plea and sentencing Eric publicly and proudly acknowledged that his intent was to take direct political action in solidarity with the community of Ferguson, Missouri following the August 2014 police killing of Michael Brown, Jr. He has been in BOP custody since he was sentenced in 2016. Even in prison, Eric is committed to using his poetry, art, and writing for liberation and a world free from domination and oppression.
