This holiday season we’ve paired up with our friends from Certain Days for a gift package that keeps giving all year long:

Give a 1-year gift subscription to Briarpatch PLUS a Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar for only $35!

(The $35 offer is also valid if you want Briarpatch and Certain Days for yourself – we won't tell.)

The Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal, Hamilton, New York, and Baltimore; and current and former political prisoners. Proceeds from the calendar go toward supporting a number of grassroots groups.

If you’re looking for a gift that offers radical inspiration to that special person in your life long after the holidays, place your order today!

Two easy ways to order:

  1. Head to our subscribe page and select the Certain Days 2023 Calendar from the “Add-ons” section.
  2. Or call us toll-free at 1-866-431-5777

About Certain Days

Certain Days works in solidarity with anti-colonial and anti-imperialist struggles, queer and trans liberation, political prisoners, and undocumented people and migrants. They raise awareness of political prisoners and prisoners of war in North America and abroad, many of whom are now in their third decade of imprisonment. They believe that radicals today should understand the history of today’s social justice movements and how that history is linked to solidarity for political prisoners and prisoners of war.

“The power of this calendar is its deep connections to our living history through people and struggles that help us develop historical consciousness. It roots us in the continuity of who we are as people working for liberation.”

—Activist and writer Chris Crass
