Support Eric King, vegan anarchist facing 30 years in federal prison charged with attacking a government building


Support Funds Needed for Anarchist Facing Federal Trial!

Eric G. King, a 28-year-old vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, MO in September 2014. Eric is being charged with throwing a hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov cocktails. The criminal complaint states that both alleged incendiary devices failed to ignite. Scheduled to go to trial in July 2015, he is facing up to 30 years in federal prison.

Eric was identified as a suspect by local police because he had previously come under suspicion for anti-government and anti-police graffiti. He is currently being held in the Corrections Corporation of America’s Leavenworth Detention Center.

Since his arrest last September, he has been extremely isolated from his loved ones and has repeatedly been targeted by the guards, who have repeatedly put his safety in jeopardy. Despite these struggles, he continues to maintain his good spirits and his resolve to see his legal situation through to the end. He is also maintaining his dedication to
struggling for a world free of domination and oppression.

We are asking for funds to help us support our comrade as he continues to weather the deplorable jail conditions. His trial may get pushed back yet again before it actually happens, which would mean more time for him to sit in the private jail awaiting his day in court. The funds collected through this campaign will go towards:

* phone calls with friends and supporters to prevent him from being isolated
* the costs of books and shipping to help him pass the time inside (much
of which has been in solitary confinement)
* commissary to help him purchase toiletry items and vegan food

*helping folks be able to come support him and pack the courtroom for Eric’s trial

These funds will not be used for legal defense or bail. He is being represented by the federal public defender and thus does not have any pending legal fees.

Every donation helps us support Eric that much better, which will help keep him stronger and more able to fight back against this state repression!

In solidarity,

The Eric King Defense Committee
