Revolutionary greetings Comrades and All Fellow Workers throughout the WORLD!!
It seemed like only yesterday when we all heard about the bloody riot that occurred at Lee County Correctional facility in South Carolina. Too many of our incarcerated comrades died.
I remember the Call that was made for a National Prison Work Stoppage in 2018. I didn’t hesitate to answer the call. Our Comrades at the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee did not hesitate to answer the Call or lend their support!! Amani Sawari and her Comrades from Jail House Lawyers Speak were on the Front Lines of the Struggle for Humyn Rights!
I knew the REAL REASON FOR THE WORK STOPPAGE!!
I knew about the inhumane prison conditions in South Carolina. I knew that the State Prison Officials were attempting to control the Narrative that was fed to the Public At Large. They claimed the violence at Lee was all about Drugs, Cellphones, and Turf Wars. THE WARRIORS AND FREEDOM FIGHTERS AT THE FREE SOUTH CAROLINA MOVEMENT REMINDED ALL OF US WHAT THE OPPRESSORS WERE ATTEMPTING TO SUPPRESS!!
The oppressors forgot to mention the lack of Rehabilitative Programming in South Carolina Prisons!!
They forgot to say anything about the Squalid Living Conditions and the Deadly Extreme Heat which is killing prisoners right now!! They forgot to talk about the antiquated and bigoted Criminal Justice System which continues to manifest and perpetuate a Program of Modern-Day Slavery!!! THE SPIRIT OF DENMARK VESSEY LIVES!!! GEORGE JACKSON LIVES!!!
THE OPPRESSORS WHO OPERATE THESE SLAVE KAMPS IN SOUTH CAROLINA NEED TO KNOW THAT THE STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM, JUSTICE, AND EQUALITY FOR ALL IS ALIVE!!!
We Demand Dignity, Respect, and Humane Treatment for our Comrades in South Carolina Now!!
Locking Humyn beings in Cages for Months at a time is not Rehabilitation it is Torture!!!
Congressman James Clyburn MUST BE Encouraged strongly to get involved here!!! We don’t need any Jeffin House Negroes or Step-N-fetch its!!! We need Servants of the People!!! Presidential Candidates Bernie Sanders, Corey Booker, and Elizabeth Warren, as well as Kamala Harris, had some Strong Words in regard to Criminal Justice Reform at the most recent Presidential Debate that was held in Houston, Texas. Well, now they all have an opportunity to put some ‘Muscle with they Hustle’ and show us what they talkin about!!! Speak out right now about what is happening to the incarcerated humyn beings trapped in these Slave Kamps in South Carolina!!! Or were they just ‘Rappin’??? Comrades the struggle for Humyn Rights and Prison Abolition is a Protracted Struggle. There will be ups and downs. Make this message go Viral y’all!!!! Let’s see what these Politicians are really about!!!!
Dare to Struggle, Dare to win, All Power to the People!!!!
What Ya Life Like
