from Denver ABC:
Statement from Amelia Nicol:
The court hearing on June 9th was a great victory for everyone who has been involved in this case, and I have been released on bond thanks to all of the hard work from all of the people who have been supporting this case; especially the people at Denver ABC who have put in an enormous amount of time and effort to see that not only this case, but other cases like it are seen, heard, and therefore part of a growing movement for true freedom for everyone who is standing up against the daily injustice that we all face in the existence of police forces.
I feel privileged to be able to be a part of a movement that has been building for centuries; one that is in constant continuation in all of us who choose to stand up together against capitalism and the rule of government that has been instigated over us. Thank you for your continued support in this case and I encourage you to write to me (I loved all of your letters) at email@example.com
I am fortunate to call you comrades.
Update #5 from Denver ABC:
On Monday June 13, Amelia joined friends and comrades on the outside after being jailed for 38 days.
She is currently out on bond, and will have another court hearing on June 27th, to face arraignment for the remaining felony and three misdemeanor charges that she is facing.
We at Denver ABC are overjoyed that Amelia is out of jail and amongst folks that care about her and her continued struggle. We want to send a resounding thank you to everyone who has supported Amelia, by contributing monetary donations, sending mail to her in jail, writing letters to the DA, attending the press conference and court dates, or fighting against predatory political, economic, and social systems across the world.
We’re still in major need of funds, as Amelia’s bond money came in the form of a short term loan. Amelia will need prolonged support and help from folks in Denver and beyond as she continues to fight this legal battle.
If you can make a donation, please consider doing so!
Funds can be mailed to:

We would also encourage folks to organize benefit shows or other efforts to help support Amelia and the work of Denver ABC. We can send you a package of outreach materials about Amelia’s case and the cases of other prisoners we support. Contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in getting some of these materials mailed to you.
You can also order copies (bulk or individual) of “Denver Fights Back” a new zine published by P&L Press available at plpress.bigcartel.com. All proceeds from the sale of this zine go to benefit Amelia’s legal fund.
In other related news, Denver ABC is in the midst of organizing a continental gathering of folks active in Anarchist Black Cross chapters set for August here in Denver. We’re currently raising funds for this effort as well. Funds will be used to help bring former prisoners, including Bo Brown, Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin, and Ramona Africa, to Denver for this conference.
If you’re interested in donating to this effort, you can send funds the same way as mentioned above, but please write “ABC Conference” in the memo line. You can also purchase a canvas reproduction print of an amazing portrait of Marilyn Buck from P&L Press at plpress.bigcartel.com. All sales of this print will be donated to the ABC Conference efforts.
We thank you immensely for your support of Amelia and the work of Denver ABC! For a world without cops, borders, bosses, or politicians!
Your comrades at Denver ABC
