Free Barrett Brown and the Jeremy Hammond Defense Committee are collaborating to produce a night to jointly raise funds for the legal expenses of these two prominent internet activists. All proceeds will be split evenly between the two and will directly benefit barrett’s legal team and jeremy’s jail support fund.
This is a fundraiser event and variety show with notable speakers, musical performances, and the auctioning of items. Barrett Brown and Jeremy Hammond, whose cases are connected, are known for exposing the illegal private spying done by Stratfor, and for their association with Anonymous. Barrett faces up to 105 years in prison and is awaiting trial, while Jeremy faces up to 10 years after taking a non-cooperating plea agreement.
I’m donating two prints for the event, portraits of Barrett and Jeremy. If you’re in NYC and can attend, please come out.
– When: Monday, August 19th 2013 – 6PM to 11PM.
– Where: ThoughtWorks NYC – 99 Madison Avenue, 15th Floor.
– Max capacity : 80 people. Admission : $20 minimum.
