Check out the new issue, print your own copies, and view past PDFs at our new website: firetotheprisons.org (NOT TO be confused with .com, which is hosted by unknown sources).
Fire to the Prisons is an insurrectionary periodical. It focuses on promoting a revolutionary solidarity between different struggles, prisoners, and existing social tensions that challenge capitalism and the state.
We made 10,000 copies of this issue because we wanted to get them as far and wide as possible. In order to create a publication for free to comrades and the general discontented public, we have forfeited our traditional magazine form and went with a less costly newspaper. We hope to spread this as far as it can go. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this project and we hope that it shows.
If you would like to order bulk copies of the newspaper, please order from LBC at their website (littleblackcart.com/Fire-to-the-Prisons-12.html). LBC will send out issues for only the cost of postage.
All direct inquiries, ranging from questions, feedback, to requests for copies can be sent to: firetotheprisons[at]riseup.net
Prisoner support groups such as the NYC Anarchist Black Cross (nycabc.wordpress.com) and East Bay Prisoner Support
(eastbayprisonersupport.wordpress.com) have stepped up to help with distribution for prisoners via snail mail. Drop us a line if you are a prisoner support group looking to do the same.
We are still looking to make back the amount that was spent printing the publication, so if you are interested throwing us some money – or better yet, organizing a benefit event, please get at us.
We’d also like to thank everyone who made this project possible – and all who have supported us in the past. Everyone that spent long hours looking at PDFs, those that built our new website, the friends that will help us print and distribute this paper, all those that contributed to the publication, and everyone that has given us encouragement along the way. Without you, this project would not have been possible.
For a borderless affinity,
For those that truly know the meaning of silence,
For all our comrades yet to be made free from the horrors of the State,
Fire to the Prisons

Reading and Discussion Event March 1st: The Interconnectedness of Anarchism, Veganism and Biocentrism.
On March 1st we will be hosting the first event we have had in a few months about Anarchism, Veganism and Biocentrism. We will be reading and reviewing "Revolutionary Ecology: Biocentrism and Deep Ecology" by Judi Bari. Some words we are hoping to discuss in are:
5. White Supremacy
With this terminology we hope to discuss their influence on one another, as well as discussing an interconnected Earth, Human and Nonhuman animal total liberation movement.
Then after that (depending on the time) we will be watching a movie (suggestions are welcomed!) on the projector screen.
WHEN: Sunday March 1st
WHERE: Email us for addy
Free vegan snacks available, Sober-safe space. LOTS of free literature to take from our zine distro!
