Free Hert Benefit Party
Benefit party for Hert: Saturday, 2/12/2011
There is a benefit going down this saturday in Pittsburgh for the incarcerated graffiti writer Hert. Sat. Feb 12th – 6pm – The Shop – 4314 Main St. Pittsburgh, PA. You can learn more about this event by checking out freehert.org.
Although it’s never fun doing a bid, it is so much easier when you’re getting mail, commissary, and support from the outside, if you can’t make it to the benefit you can always show support using freehert.org. It was set up by Hert’s friends, family and supporters to help organize the efforts of herts supporters worldwide, as well as provide them info like mailing addresses, how to donate and more.

At the moment Ian is residing SCI Pittsburgh.
