Revolutionary greetings comrades! It’s November 2016 and I believe that the oppressors who operate Texas prisons placed me inside this isolated control unit in order to break me! But I have news for all who care to listen, I may bend but I will not break!
I am a Black Panther. I believe in serving the people. I am a socialist. I believe in a dictatorship of the proletariat.
I believe workers have rights.
I believe if you are a prisoner and you are working a job that generates funds for the state you should get paid.
I believe prisoners should have humane working and living conditions.
I believe the battle to abolish prison slavery will be won.
I believe in the power of the people.
The white, black, latina/o, asian, arab, gay, lesbian, straight, trans people!
I believe in the exposure of hypocrisy and lies!
Don’t acquit white folks for armed take-overs of wildlife reserves in Oregon and then call in the National Guard to massacre our Indigenous sisters and brothers in Standing Rock!!
I see the disparity in the meting out of justice in this country and so do you! If we didn’t collectively stand up against corporations who will seek to poison our planet who will??
More than anything else I believe in YOU!! Without you, there is no me!
-Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win, All Power to the People!!
