Event Details

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, recently ended week-long hunger strike in protest against the conditions that prisoners endure at the women's penal colony in the Republic of Mordovia.

In support and solidarity, we propose a 17 hour sewing action to take place at ILGWU http://ilgwu.wordpress.com/
in Long Beach.

Here's how it could work:
If you sew and you want to come in to be a generosity worker, you can stay and sew for as much or as little time as you like.

If you are in need of sewing services and support, you can come with your project in hand, and the generosity workers will help you out. (halloween costumes welcome!)

If you want to just come and hang, entertain or feed the generosity workers or drop off some donated supplies, it'll be so great to have you there.

There will also be amazing handmade items, like utili-pussies (hybrid pussy and tool belt), balaclavas and more!

Proceeds will go to Amnesty International http://www.amnestyusa.org/

and The Voice Project

We hope to see you there
