Other artists and writers include: Farha Najah, Sekou Odinga, David Gilbert, Daniel McGowan, Oscar Lopez Rivera, Sophia Dawson, Chris Dixon, Emory Douglas, Laura Whitehorn, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Xinachtli, Capital Area Against Mass Incarceration, South Asian Women’s Community Centre, Marius Mason, Eric King, Kevin “Rashid” Johnson, Jennifer Meeropol, Leonard Peltier, Amanda Priebe, the Termite Collective, and more.

Justseeds always gets copies and sells them, so we will have them on the site soon, but in the meantime, individual copies can be ordered here, and if you want to buy them wholesale for your organization or store, go here.

From Certain Days:

The Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal, Toronto, and New York, in partnership with three political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York State: David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell.

This year’s theme is “Sustaining Movements,” and features art and writings by Farha Najah, Sekou Odinga, David Gilbert, Daniel McGowan, Oscar Lopez Rivera, Sophia Dawson, Chris Dixon, Emory Douglas, Laura Whitehorn, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Xinachtli, Micah Bizant, Capital Area Against Mass Incarceration, South Asian Women’s Community Centre, Mazatl, Marius Mason, Eric King, Kevin “Rashid” Johnson, Jennifer Meeropol, Leonard Peltier, Amanda Priebe, the Termite Collective, Ali Cat Leeds and more.

The proceeds from Certain Days 2017 will be divided among these groups: Addameer Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association (Palestine), Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) and the Unist’ot’en camp.

The initial project was suggested by Herman in 2001, and has been shaped throughout the years by all of our ideas, discussions, and analysis. All of the current members of the outside collective are grounded in day- to-day organizing work other than the calendar, on issues ranging from migrant justice to community media to prisoner solidarity. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer- and trans- liberationist position.
