Revolutionary Greetings Comrades!
January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month and I was kind of upset when I read an article in USA TODAY which highlighted modern slavery in the U.K. The article focused on a real problem which exists in the United Kingdom in which many Asian girls are forced into a life of slavery working in Nail Parlors and Beauty Salons. I was actually really perplexed about something. How does USA TODAY have the gall to point the finger at the U.K. when we have yet to see an exposé or investigative USA TODAY report on the horrible Prison Slavery crisis in Amerika?? How can they ignore the work stoppages which are now taking place in Florida? How and why does the corporate owned Media in Amerika continue to ignore the countless numbers of prisoners who have been murdered in Texas and Florida prisons?
There is a growing Abolition Movement in Amerika and USA TODAY IS QUIET AS A CHURCH MOUSE!! More hypocrisy!
Many people do not know that I was actually introduced to the Prisoner Rights Movement by a beautiful and intelligent BLACK WOMYN named Kathy Griffin-Grinin. Kathy Griffin-Grinin is actually a survivor of Human Trafficking and was the host of a very popular radio show in Houston, Texas called THE PRISON SHOW! which airs every Friday on KPFT 90.1FM. KPFT is a member of the Pacifica Network and Kathy used to give me regular shout-outs on the Radio saying: ‘Assalamu-Laikum Brother Malik!’ that was 6 years ago and now I have become a Leader in the Movement which seeks to abolish Prison Slavery in Amerika! AND HUMYN TRAFFICKING EVERYWHERE!!!
In order for me to have become an outspoken advocate for prisoners I needed someone to take an interest in amplifying my ‘Voice.’ I found that person! He is a TRANSGENDER ACTIVIST named justin adkins!! justin embodies all of the positive attributes of a modern day Freedom Fighter and dedicated Servant of the People. Although January 22nd is recognized as Trans Action Day, my comrade and friend justin is ACTIVE every day! Fighting for Freedom, Justice, and Equality for all of humanity! This year brothers and sisters let’s do something significant in order to eradicate Imperialism, Fascism, and Racism! Let’s fight the system together!
Dare to struggle, Dare to Win, All Power to the People!!!
