The War of the Flea, Part 3: A Narrative Infestation – by Greyscale the Mosquito

We have seen the smash-and-grab “robberies” that are now a daily part of the news cycle, adding the recent train “robberies” on the west coast, a clear example of people no longer accepting the cronie-capitalism that has dominated western civilization since forever, for all to see. We have also seen the recent uptick in “ambushing police” with 13 foot soldiers shot in one day. This is what is happening, according to the news media which, left or right biased, is still nothing more than an apparatus of the state. So, the narrative being put forward is of paramount importance and so, along with the numerous other soft areas I’ve suggested as places for fleas to bite, the narrative being told must be addressed and rewritten to portray a more accurate truth.

The smash-and-grab “robberies” would be a good place to start. After all, the state loves a “law & order” narrative to cover up its perpetual siphoning away of citizens’ resources, and therefore ability, to challenge its dominion. To anyone who is paying any attention, the state has become the obvious problem. Certainly, within its own structure there is the internal conflict between the Nazi-right and Marxist-left, with the smattering of “moderates” who only want the machine to keep running. But, that is a non-issue and no more than a distraction from the real problem. The state, and the law & order paradigm (which is the tool of the state), is used solely for the purposes of perpetuating the state and to oppress any attempts to usurp or interrupt that power-hold. In fact, it is a clearly understood fact that, contrary to the party-line, the more laws we have the more problems are created, the more the state clamps down. Wash, rinse, repeat.

The proportionality has been exposed, so the nobility and aristocrats can no longer pretend that there isn’t a massive riff between us (the citizens) and them, our Lords and Ladies. As the nobility becomes increasingly engorged on the fruits of our labor, we gain that old fashioned Robin Hood mentally, a natural instinct and the greatest response of any human to unchecked greed and avarice. This has been articulated a hundred different ways over the millennia, but so-called theft and black market operations are assuredly among the oldest and universal options. Interestingly enough, the government (the state), knows this as a means. It is how it came to be in the first place, in which it criminalizes all forms of theft that is not its own. This is why the state went so hard after, first, the Italian mafia, and then all “organized crime” as a whole. There will be no competition. The state will be the ONLY gang in their territory. Now, smash-and-grab train robberies, etc. don’t seem so new, extreme, or out of place. In fact, they are expected and should be encouraged.

Everyone seems to be targeting the economy’s soft-spot, as seen by the growing protests by truckers worldwide. Covid mandates provide an easy cover-story, but I sense a manipulation of information on social media fueling a pissed-off citizenry during the opening stages of a major civil conflict. Yes, the civil war has already begun ten years ago. These truckers took protesting to a level of economic warfare, and hats off to them. They have blocked not just one, but three ports of entry, disrupting already damaged supply chains and showing a larger unity across international borders. Even their own unions, crying to stop such attacks, were ignored. Not only does it unify, but it serves clearly to expose the false narratives of the state. If you do not comply, the state will use force to subdue you, and it will do so while talking about your “rights” and how they, the nobility, represent the citizen’s rights. Hypocrisy at its best. The narratives of the state hold no water. To quote Bob Marley, “Every day the bucket go to the well, I say one day the bottom must drop out… I shot the sheriff.”

This brings me to the rising number of assaults on law enforcement officers. Let me be the first to say – GOOD! This gang of bastard foot soldiers for the nobility have been murdering, racketeering, extorting and robbing citizens for far too long, while paying no price. The Sheriff of Nottingham is corrupt and must be dealt with. Everything you are told about this gang of blue miscreants is a flat out lie. They are not your friends. They are not here to help you. They are not good members of your community. They are not heroes of any kind. They are a militant gang of enforcers, beholden to nobody but themselves, and occasionally the nobles whose dirty work they do.

That being understood, the proper narrative should read as, “13 More Enemies of the Citizens Have Been Shot”, or maybe “Oppressors Take Hit As Resistance Bares It’s Teeth After Centuries Under the Boots and Clubs of Blue Bastards”, or even “State Sponsored Terrorist Troops Dealt With by Freedom Fighters”. The reason there is a rise in resistance is because once the veil has been lifted you cannot un-see the truth. The truth is that police are nothing more than a gang of terrorists who do the bidding of the state. They will take what they want from you, including your life, and they must be dealt because there is no time left. This is not “lawfulness” as the nobility would have you think, but the natural, well considered act of those who will no longer willfully consent to being oppressed. Praise goes to the resistance fighters. Condemnation goes to the blue soldiers of oppression. Police must always be referred to as state sponsored terrorists.

There are still those who tow the party-line for the state and would attempt to bait you in to some empty philosophical/political debate about such a stance. Be not drawn in to such a foolish, age old play. It will be used as means to push the state’s false narrative. There will be no real debate, that is to say an honest exchange of ideas for the purpose of arriving at some truth. Instead, the state-actor will engage in a set of traps, hidden in their cyclical arguments, designed to befuddle and silence any dissenting opinions, while bolstering their false narratives.

There is more to be done. Time is short.

50 Immoral Anarchist Aphorisms – by Comrade Candle

  1. One knows what one wants to.
  2. Knowing oneself is a journey – presently.
  3. Purposelessness grants many creative liberties; values and morals are nothing.
  4. Prescribing oneself a pill to swallow – whose truth?
  5. What can we accept as true, when even our language?
  6. To speak and write fill the same void in our present; our existence always constructs a past; what do we record?
  7. Pain has no value to it, for what purpose would arise the preference for pleasure?
  8. Crime is not often enough recognized as the individual’s defiance to the State’s will.
  9. The State controls, demanding subservience for the meager table scraps.
  10. I am my own.
  11. God has, for far too long, constrained the Ego.
  12. The individual is forever at war with the State.
  13. Cold and cruel detachment – A gleeful State; authority over the individual.
  14. The cold can burn with the ferocity of a flame; And the heat?
  15. You rid yourself of God – and his morals?
  16. None is equal to another, for nature sorely lacks equals, yet none are free until no one is above another – hierarchy is not natural.
  17. Society is nothing; And without the individual?
  18. Crime and Law are a dichotomy.
  19. Traditions forever damn the advent of a new.
  20. A NEW DAWN – I am continuously becoming, much as I was.
  21. Freedom & the State are opposites; Who is free when one must do as they are commanded?; A land of the Free would, truly, have far fewer borders.
  22. The absence of authority grants the individual the most potential liberty.
  23. What makes the criminal so deserving of your disdain – and your pity?
  24. The exaltation of Good comes at the cost of all deemed naught.
  25. Who knows better what masculinity expects than those so desperately trying to escape it?
  26. Gender entails another to interpret it, no?
  27. My femininity and yours may be distinct, yet who should decide yours, or mine, is unfeminine?
  28. My self and the gender I weld remain two sides of the same coin.
  29. The negation of everything is nothing; nothing lacks everything.
  30. My existence, and through it my philosophy, are the supplement to my bodily senses. Also an interpretation. I am the only one to, physically, feel the pain if I were stabbed; It may very well be that I am the only one who cares, too! In what way other than our own experience is the basis for our thought born?
  31. Morals limit the creativity of one’s actions and thoughts – “How else to not become some monster?” – And I suppose morals demand you respect your fellow individual? Respect of their autonomy? The arbiters of good and just may conclude your control as so. My thoughts are more readily concerned with my own experience than your morals. A more affirmative and creative existence – to thee who destroy, I also say yay!
  32. God is a delusion of man to expound upon the the unexplainable, to lead those who hold true the belief, and to judge others that defy the authority. As a concept, it has far outlived any use.
  33. We are all nothing; there is nothing substantive or of value to our wake. Every aspect of our world, of our person, is meaningless.
  34. The criminal performs tirelessly what the State demands not be. An existence of crime will have the State desiring your end.
  35. Am I to care what the State wants; needs?
  36. Individual liberty comes at the cost of an exertion of one’s power.
  37. The individual is both nothing & everything; My entire existence, all of my power; My power compared to the State’s?
  38. My womanhood is precisely mine, and mine alone.
  39. The way Kodak hits ’em with that drum; He’s not making beats, the drum isn’t making music – I can’t wait to let him spray!
  40. FritoLay was far more oppressive before it became a Broward County thing. Now – it is very cool.
  41. A large propensity of the State’s power lies in its admiration & respect, as undue as they may. The insurrection could start with you, merely, defying the State by recognizing yourself. When the coldest of all monsters erases your Ego, and would command, you follow, what could be more radical than this refusal? You are an individual.
  42. Time is a measurement, one we can only ever measure finitely on our own; Our lives have a finite amount of time. There existed time before my existence, and there will probably be a time after my death. Yet my time before my death is scarce. The time the State chooses to rid me of, justified by its Law.
  43. The State removes individuals of their liberty every moment.
  44. I would rather affirm what I would like to be than grant control of my own existence to traditions & customs.
  45. Control elicits submission; subjugation.
  46. What is there that is voluntary of capitalism, when all alternatives provoke the State’s icy wrath? Is it a choice, when the options presented amount to submit or survive violence? I am happy, I was able to lead my life. You, too.
  47. Spice and flavor form the palette of a taste.
  48. Crime is cool, too.
  49. Women make me feel a special way – very gayly.
  50. I am noble and virtuous, an immoralist. You shan’t possess my Ego with your specters – I alone create my will. Nothing matters to me; I see purposelessness as my liberator. Who am I? If perhaps anyone ever truly knows, it’ll be myself; maybe.

Interview Between Cody Carmichael and Comrade Z – February 2022, TDCJ Memorial Unit, Rosharon, Texas

Comrade Z: Can you please introduce yourself and give some background on your time at the newly minted “Memorial Unit”, formerly known as Dirty Darrington?

Cody: My name is Cody Carmichael. I am a capitalist, conservative and American. I committed a criminal offense, which I will not explain away or cheapen with some excuse. I was responsible. I may not agree with everything everyone says, but as an American we all have the right to our own opinions, because we “We the People”. That being said, I love what y’all are doing and hope that you find many supporters and can help those with small voices or who think they cannot be heard. I have been incarcerated for eleven years in March. Of that eleven, I’ve spent about seven on Darrington and about a year and a half on Memorial. All of it has sucked!

Z: What are the conditions like in the prison? (AC/heating, clothing, use of force, suicide, disciplinary, rec., medical, mental health)

Cody: In a word, they – suck! For convenience sake I will try to keep this short, because there is a lot of suckiness here. Just remember all the little things make the big things. There is no A/C here in this south Texas prison. We get a fan. Maybe two years ago we were allowed to buy two fans! It was very exciting until you get to the cell, which only has two plugs. No joke! I would rather wash my clothes in the toilet in my cell than get clothes from laundry. Enough said. I have never had a use of force called on me, so I have no ground to stand on, but five on one never seemed like fair odds. Sadly, suicides are common. Being treated as sub-human will ware down a soul. Tragic. Disciplinary is a joke. If an office writes a case, you get that case. I stopped going to minor case hearings, and only go to major case hearings so I will know my line class.

Z: What are the accommodations for people with dietary restrictions?

Cody: Peanut butter sandwiches. That’s it. I was a vegetarian for two and a half years here. No beef, no pork, chicken or fish. If it wasn’t for the inmate line servers I would have starved to death. A standard meat free is two scoops of beans and one serving of everything else, and a peanut butter sandwich. By the way, this peanut butter sandwich isn’t a glorious serving with jelly. It’s a stingy scoop of peanut butter on two flaky pieces of white bread. No jelly! I asked the kitchen caption one day if he could give anything else besides peanut butter or if he could church up the peanut butter. He said eat a regular tray. When I told him I was a vegetarian he said, “We serve cheese sandwiches”, which they do, one out of one hundred meals.

Z: How can people on the outside try to support you in trying to make conditions better inside? Is there someone to call? What would you like people to say?

Cody: If people started to call the district representatives in Texas and make formal complains, it forces TDCJ to crack down on Darrington (Memorial). Don’t just complain to the department (i.e. commissary), get officer names. The more detail you give, the more you force an issue.

Z: Why are prisoners mail getting blocked, withheld, harassed, discriminated on, or thrown away by prison staff? Does it have to do with the content or is it a straight up power trip?

Cody: Because they answer to nobody. Anytime someone controls what another person is allowed to do it is about power. The moment they chose to squeeze their fist on some but not others, that’s power trippin’. So who knows, because the mailroom can deny anything from anyone and who can stop them? You might think, “why don’t they use grievances?” Because they do not work. I have written close to six, all of them were rubber stamped.

Z: There is a tendencies in prison abolitionist and anarchist projects to focus on political prisoners, often neglecting other prisoners in the process. Do you appreciate Mongoose for assisting you without pulling the ideology card?

Cody: Good question. Like I said from the start – I’m American. To me that means I should appreciate other people’s opinions. I may not agree or I might be pissed that someone’s idea was better than mine. Hell, in a few years I may be ashamed of a view I currently have. But, I will never be ungrateful to any organization that wants to fight for someone else. Hell, that’s the whole reason the Boston Tea Party happened. True, both abolitionists and anarchist projects focus on those they are closest to their community, but they are not exclusive tight-asses trying to censor other people’s views. Hello… I am not an anarchist, but I’m being interviewed. I mean Z never made me drink the kool-aid. So, I guess what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Z: Would you appreciate more assistance from organizations and supporters in solidarity with IWW-IWOC Texas? How can they help?

Cody: There is no person alive who does not need solidarity. I mean, I am pretty awesome, but it would be nice to communicate with others, be a part of something, or have friends drop a line every once in awhile.

Z: Is there anything else you would like to add?

Cody: Yeah, this might get deep, but I want to say it anyways. Life is about finding your identity, becoming the person you not only want to be, but should be. This, from personal experience, is not easy and sometimes makes people crazy. Keep going, if you stop, give up, quit, become overwhelmed, then you give up on everyone you’re supposed to help. I was a junior in the Bible College program when I failed a class and got kicked out. I failed because I discovered I didn’t love myself, but I love my daughter, sister, mom, and friends. All of these great people love me. My friends are the reason I am the man I am. I went to Bible College to challenge Christ and myself. I am now on Asatru (Pagan) who no longer suffers from chronic depression and can never be a Field Minister. I have also never been happier. I am in prison and found who I am. I see real goals that I can achieve. More important, I realize that after one finds themselves, you should then turn around and help others get where you are. This is the Law of Reciprocation, help others to help yourself. A fifteen minute conversation that may mean little to you could mean everything to someone else. Well, I’m Carmichael, just Carmichael. Have a good one!

Solidarity – by Mr. King Gilliand

Solidarity

Solidarity is like a constant river of knowledge,

people give it out like a determined stream of poetic rhapsody!

Solidarity flows through our veins and into our hearts and

reminds our comrades that they are significant,

Solidarity flows from one prison to another

and from my mind to all of yours,

It will always flow in and out of our lungs,

especially on a bright new year’s day!

Solidarity is in the minds of those who hold so dear

as to not allow themselves to disintegrate into the dust of nothingness

Some people do oppose spoken spoken so emphatically

like poetry and prose,

Solidarity to me is like a beautiful yellow rose that

blossoms and grows into something courageous and wise,

Solidarity don’t tell lies!

Mongoose’s solidarity flows like tap water,

and it’s love courses its way through cracks in the walls

and enters every prison in America,

Mongoose’s love and solidarity flows through the unrestrained brains

out in the community as well,

all the while enlightening souls,

Solidarity finds its way around all perimeters and parameters of

confining blindness to those who will never really know what solidarity is,

Solidarity is something beautiful,

as it prevails over all adversity!

In Pursuit of Permanent Autonomous Zones – by Dan Baker

January 6, 2022

Dear Comrades,

Today is the anniversary of the January 6th insurrection in Washington DC, and I am angry. I write to you with love from federal prison. I hope this letter finds you happy and free, in good health and surrounded by friends, food and community.

Objectively the DC riots were a huge blow to Amerikkkan fascism. Racist cops were killed by racist Trump supporters, and racist baby killers were killed by racist federal agents. When our enemies are busy killing each other we should not interrupt them.

From another perspective we must remember that the Confederate flag was carried into the heart of the U$ Capital. Where I grew up, in Jupiter Farms, Florida, there is a very real and very well armed white Christian nationalist militia. They sincerely believe that “the south will rise again”. This means that they are actively working towards building Margaret Atwood’s Republic of Gilead from the Handmaid’s Tale. They recruit at churches, schools and even Wal-Mart, naturally. They go to the border of Texas and Mexico and shoot, kill people trying to cross. They brag about it. When I was kicked out of the Army they tried to recruit me. I declined. Instead I joined the YPG International Volunteer Battalion to fight against ISIS and defend Rojava. Now I am in prison.

My point is that there are militias like this everywhere, some more serious than others. The far right has Atomwaffen, the League of the South, the KKK, literal nazis and neo-nazis, to name a few. Instead of Rojava, they go to the Ukraine and join the Azov battalion to fight against Russia. They are also largely composed of former and current military and police. They have combat experience, have been to prison, and have no problem hunting and killing human beings.

At the same time, the left is composed of anarchists like myself, socialists, communists, some people of minority and low-income communities, the spectrum of queer communities, and, unfortunately, liberals. Liberals enable fascism with their passive, non-violent acceptance of abuse and oppression. Communists are just as authoritarian as fascists, but they may be evolving, and I respect their militant personality. If we are going to survive, we must all adapt militant personalities.

We must find common ground to unite on and practice mutual aid and better solidarity. There can be no progress without action and sacrifice. The powers that be and the warlords and dictators that would replace them will not relinquish power without a struggle. As we saw last January 6th, fascist U$A is willing to slaughter its most rabid patriots and loyal lapdogs. If they are willing to do that to themselves imagine what they will do to us. We are in this together and we will share the same fate unless we unite the left and take daily direct actions.

The liberals under Biden want us to tone it down and lick the boots of cops making public relations gestures. Where is your dignity? Where is your rage? White cops are still killing black people who are struggling to live under wage slavery. Let’s face it: In Amerikkka it is illegal to be poor, it is a crime to be a freed slave, a brown bodied human being. At the Capital insurrection one white woman cried that she was being treated like black people.

We can’t expect others to do what we are too lazy and too afraid to do. We can’t just sit around and wait to be treated with dignity, equity and respect. Real freedom comes from the barrel of a gun. If anyone tells you that guns are bad, they are cops at worst and at best – collaborators. We have to do things that are too dangerous to speak about. We have to do them alone because so many infiltrators and liberals have been conditioned to call the cops and fear prison. Prison ain’t shit. Far worse than jail is the poverty of spirit that leads to a pathetic and contemptable cowardice that gratefully accepts slavery.

A revolutionary consciousness has been reawakened in the United $tates and all over the world. The property of all police, the military and the prison industrial complex is fair game. The 2020 uprisings were just a gentle warm-up, the contractions that are leading to the birth of a brave new world. Worldwide, people are realizing that they can do anything the state takes credit for, and they can do it better. Autonomous zones are evolving from experiments into permanent stages of functional proficiency.

These Permanent Autonomous Zones must be defended. Black, brown and indigenous self-determination and the liberation of colonized ecosystems expose the illegitimacy of settlers and colonizer nation-states. All over the planet, people are seeing through the U$A’s lies and calling their forever-wars what they are – bullying, occupation and theft. If you can get to an autonomous zone like Rojava and Chiapas, then do so. If you are trapped in a fascist, dystopian police state like the U$, the UK, or Turkey, then resist where you are. The stakes are so high. Escape, undermine, subvert, and most important of all, resist! The world is dying and the people it have hard targets and fortresses to siege.

If you are in an occupied region then do not build fortresses to protect yourself. It is up to you to harass the fascist occupiers until it becomes more costly for them to be representatives of oppression than to change and practice social behavior. We must work both within the system and outside of it.

Inside the beast we must push for the abolition of police, prisons and the externally deployed military industrial complex. We must be specific and persistent. There must be small, small circles of activists, gears within the gears of this inhuman machine that grinds our life-blood as the lubrication for it’s function. The only function of the machine we are working to sabotage is to accumulate and retain power. It’s symbol is the boot stepping on the face of the commoner, for all of eternity. We commoners are monkey wrenches.

Work with no more than nine others. One in every ten people is an informant, either as a paid snitch or a volunteer patriot. Remember that all patriotic Amerikkkans are defending a white supremacist organization called the U$A. Within your circle of nine comrades test each other. Build loyalty through direct actions. Police will not strip naked, give up smart phones or publicly state their loyalty to revolution and opposition to racism, patriarchy and the United $tates government.

We share a rich heritage with international revolutionary movements. Here in the occupied United $tates we have a high standard set by indigenous resistance to colonizers, the black slave rebellions, and Irish and black insurrections of the northeast. There are also examples in Cuba, Venezuela, Mexico and many other Latin American countries. The middle east has Rojava, the Arab Spring in Egypt, and the PKK in Turkey. The IRA and Palestine are fierce allies against racist occupies. The French Commune, the French resistance in WWII and the Jewish resistance in the ghettos are no different from the revolutionary work of Black Panthers and other less scrupulous bands of revolutionary militants in occupied North America. It is the height of arrogance to assume that the working class of wage slaves in modern Amerikkka face more danger and repercussions than the Kurds in Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran, than the Jews fighting nazis, the French fighting against monarchies and the Irish rebels fighting against the British empire. That attitude of hopeless resignment to U$ KKKops is nothing but cowardice and privileged domestication based on conditioned weakness.

Weakness is a temporary state. It is not your true self. Patriarchal forces have been selectively breeding for weak, stupid workers. It only takes a few years of training to undo this insidious practice, but it is up to you. Being weak is very painful. Being stupid is painful. Daily training is painful. Being strong and educated about the truth of the history and herstory of oppression is painful. To live is to experience suffering. But if we have a goal to live for then our suffering has meaning. Our lives have a purpose. Our purpose is to fight for a better world. This is an eternal struggle.

The enemy is training. White supremacist, interlocking systems of oppression, racism, sexism and colonialism are daily training with the fierce intensity of religious zealots. They spiritualize their struggle and appeal to irrational and vague, emotional notions to work themselves into a self destructive frenzy. While you are reading this, someone out there is training to outwork you and kill you. It is not by accident that toxic ideologies take power. They plan with anxious counsels over many years, saving resources and then going into violent actions. Whoever works harder in the off-season wins. We must show them that the love in our hearts is greater than the hate in theirs. We love life more than they love death. We have evolved beyond an innocence that can be nourished by myths and dreams.

In order to be successful we must blend individualism and community. We need infrastructure, food sharing, shelter, medicine, education and transportation. We need convicts and college students, Black feminists, radical queers, pacifists, anarchists, communists, indigenous resistance, insurrectionists, environmentalists, socialists and eco-terrorists. As individuals we take direct actions without warning or collaborators, and we don’t need to take credit or make any statements. The white supremacist nation-states are feeling billions of small bites. Come together to live and recover, separate to strike blows against capitalism. As needed we can reverse this dynamic.

Every day the representatives of the fascist nation states make fresh outrages against humanity. We need to share this with the world on the internet. Utilize social media and mass transportation. Travel to other states, countries and continents to support protests and provide emergency mutual aid and disaster relief. By car, truck, train and plane we must unite international revolutionary movements into one global revolutionary movement. Long live the worldwide revolutionary movements! Let each be unique to it’s own specific needs. Let each learn from each other. We must love and support one another. It is isolation and poverty that breed ignorance.

Reach out to your neighbors, block by block. Each of you can change one person’s life forever: “each one teach one”. All revolutions are based on land held in common. Eventually we must be able and willing to fight and win. I’ve had to censor myself so that I can continue to communicate with everyone and send messages. Please realize that everything I say is toned down. Take heart because you are not alone. The idea that any government is all powerful, all knowing and invincible is a myth. We will survive. We are learning and we are all equal in this struggle.

We take care of our people, the kids, the disabled, former prisoners and survivors of state and interpersonal violence. We are not perfect. We are often poor. But we are a tribe and a community without borders. We give and accept resources and criticism with equal enthusiasm and gratitude. There are no charismatic leaders. We are a radical democracy. There are no heroes, only the fallen are heroes. There are no saviors – we save ourselves and each other.

This is a class war. It has been going on since before we were born. It may continue long after we are dead. Our enemies are ignorance, hate, sexism, classism, patriarchy, racism, bigotry, and their representatives: cops, soldiers, prison guards, bureaucrats, capitalists, landlords, robber barons, plantation owners, fascists and bosses. Our goal is to empower individuals and collective groups to combat class traitors in ways that are inclusive, militant, uncompromising and most importantly – effective. We must set deadlines and aim for results. The goals include eradicating gendered and racist violence, exploitation, marginalization, domination, hierarchy and ableism. We must be careful to offer criticisms and accountability to ourselves and each other daily. If we become our enemies then we have failed. Please respond to this by offering me criticisms, both publicly on social media and privately to me in correspondence.

Expect contractions and expansions, failure and success, contradictions and harmony. Look out for opportunists. Be practical, logical and wary for security reasons. Be flexible and strong. Be critical and reach out to me to teach me something. Raise your voice – you are needed!

Contaminated Water at TDCJ Memorial Unit – Call for Solidarity from Comrade Z

January 13, 2022

The Texas Board of Criminal Justice has decided to kill more slaves in the Texas Department of Minimal Justice by allowing their violent, racist policy to allow regular-Joes off the streets of Texas to use violent force on inmates for petty shit. MongooseDistro.com, TexasPrisonReform.com, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Texas Civil Rights Project, Fire Ant Collective, TEAMONE, Empty Cages Collective, and Anarchist Communist Group are actively on board with IWOC-Texas to bring the “TBCJ” into the spotlight for allowing these racist slaveholder policies to continue.

IWW-IWOC Texas is calling every last one of you to join up and campaign with us against “TBCJ” in 2022. Us IWOCs on Memorial Plantation are requesting that our comrades call in the “EPA” to survey our water. It’s contaminated. The laundry department is being neglected by Huntsville. Prisoners do not even have towels available. The captain refuses to order what this unit needs in order to save the state money. We want her replaced with a Major, just like we got the chow-hall fixed. Captain Page, violent and racist piece of shit, needs to be removed, as well as Major Gooden and Major Cooper.

We are requesting that comrades make it a priority to get air conditioning and heating installed for prisoners. Also, general population does not have an equal amount of phones as medium-custody. This is obviously done to create friction between inmates, another “TBCJ” tactic to create environments of violence. We want phones installed ASAP.

Sgt. Williams is not reporting the drugs introduced by staff members, but has knowledge of all the drugs coming into the unit. This is then used against the inmate by Sgt. Williams drug testing inmates to send them to ad-seg and push them to suicide. This tactic is going on all over six regions of TDCJ. I am requesting that people of the community do a thorough investigation on all of Sgt. Williams’ agendas. A 20 year veteran stuck in a sergeant position is a red flag. Huntsville has placed this man here to harm inmates administratively.

I ask you to post this info on all anarchist media sites to help us combat the policy that is only designed to punish. No rehabilitation is offered at all. This is too obvious of malicious intent to ignore. Don’t let this go unseen, with all the flaws a 90 year old plantation has, drug addiction is not the worst. Cancer causing water is. Stop the bullshit!

Contact me. Let’s agitate in 2022.

Solidarity and Sabotage,
