The Reality of the Modern Day Slave Complex – by Comrade Z

The Current Slavery Complex continues only because of its profitability. The Slaves perform Free Labor; they perform integral functions in the maintenance of the Slavery Complex;

they provide secondary profit for companies

that provide goods and services to the Slave Population.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice men’s prison, Darrington Unit, Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, in unincorporated Brazoria County. Houston is redirecting a $4 million contract that was going to go to the TDCJ, which uses unpaid prisoner labor.

A vast number of companies employ Slaves outsourced as labor by the Prison, increasing those companies’ profits. Like TDCJ’s $4.2 Million contract just shot down for ‘unpaid labor’ in the “Tire Plant,”…Asst. Warden Chevalier says TDCJ has no funding for A/C on the unit,… $4.2 Million a year is enough to fit 5 unit’s with it. The prison’s rely upon Slaves to prepare meals and conduct daily maintenance and cleaning of the prison itself. Companies that provide Food on Commissary, Phones, or Email, charge inflated prices and reap super-profits from Slaves and their families. Thus, the Prison with its Slave Population performs a Central Role in the Economic, Political, and Social Status Quo that currently exists.

Fact: City Council Members are standing against “Prison Slavery,”…from the Mayor 

Sylvester Turner’s Administration, they are watching to see what the Darrington Unit does, not the Administrator’s, but the People,…will they Peacefully Demonstrate and let the City know that they too, are not Standing for “Racial Discrimination” that has been Texas’ Tradition Far Too…Long. This era of “Prison Slavery” is over, as soon as the Slaves accept the fact that Democrats are drafting a ‘bill’ now…to get inmates PAID.

This serves for inmates to Bargain and Demand Prison Guideline Reform. Fact!

      Here’s another fact…while every city in Amerikkka is reaping the benefits of their Protests and Demonstrations, you are about to ‘Miss the Bus’…again!! What a Peaceful Protest will do, is get reported back to City Council, State Representatives, Texas Governor, and you can set Parole Reform, and pay wages in stone.

“Unconditional Work Stoppage” will be the End of TDCJ-Oppression in ‘Mail Rooms,’ ‘Ad- Segs’…Disciplinary Offices, and Power of the Worker will be answered to, with respect as a member of the Working Class. Don’t miss out! Lay it Down! All of You! Get Together in the Name of George “Big Floyd” Floyd, who was murdered, so you can have this opportunity. Get with a Movement “Darrington,” get PAID, get Paroles!!

TDCJ is a machine for the continuation of Structural Racism, Oppression and Injustice. The elimination of this Slavery Complex would be the most Expedient Method for directly

confronting and eliminating the vast complex of the current Slavery Structures, from Police to Courts, to Prisons.

        While a great deal of attention has been paid to the brutality and violence on policy on the front end of the criminal justice process, the aims of “Black Lives Matter” would be more effectively served by focusing instead on the back end of that injustice process, the Slavery Complex of prison that creates the demand for black bodies on the front end. To make an analogy, it is more effective to eliminate the Slavers and Slave Ships (Police) by Burning the Plantations (Prisons) that create demands for Slaves in the first place. 

The difference today is Legislators and Executives are for the Anti-Prison Slavery Complex, – so Peaceful Demonstrations not only serve to Empower the People, but for these ‘Execs and Legislators’ to show their colleagues that they are being heard, and that Prisoners are simply asking for what has been way overdue. In 2021, Darrington Unit can make History in Texas, for the entire Prison System, – by Peacefully Laying it Down.

        Black and Brown communities are the hardest hit and are expected to Rise-Up to the occasion, to let Texas know, we care moving with the City Council Members, and State Representatives in Ending Texas Prison Slavery. 

        We must employ Direct-Action, exercising our own power. To Truly Transform the Reality of the Slave Complex and the world we inhabit, we cannot employ reformist strategies appealing to those in power…We Move as One Voice, the Workers Voice…let them figure out the rest. All you gotta’ do is Lay it Down!! And get your Families to contact Media, so the Peaceful Demonstrations is treated with respect. Personally, I’ve Laid it Down since September – and August, in Solidarity with the BLM Movement, and as an organizer with the IWW- IWOC.

        Since a New Direct-Action Campaign is going to be required, to confront the ‘loser’ TDCJ Slave-Holding Committee’s, “I’m listening to all Feedback, Negative, Mediocre, Positive,” – I am listening, and so are my facilitators on the outside. my media connections are prepared to listen to your families’ concerns and are on standby. It is time to bring Slavery to an End.

        The Final Chapter on the History of Slavers in Amerikkka, like the first chapter, will

be written in blood and ashes. With this proposal reaching your hands, and with these ideas reaching your mind…all of you have an opportunity to be a part of History.

Slavery is and can become History again.

Solidarity for Darrington.

Unconditional Work Stoppage to End Texas Prison Slavery. Giving Birth to a New Way of Life, Out of the Ashes of the Old.

Texas Slave Complex (Konsentrationslager Darrington) – by Julio A. “Comrade Z” Zuniga

Dear Anarchists,

It would appear that our goals for humanitarian awareness to be brought to the ass-backwards State of Fuckery, Texas, and the Texas Department of Minimal Justice are beginning to take shape. To all our supports: we appreciate you, and we ask that you continue to ride the storm with us. My current situation has me thinking about the future of our campaigns in Texas and the direction it is taking.

I am making it officially known my goal to bring to fruition an unconditional work stoppage. It is going to take understanding and solidarity. Offenders will know that in “no way” do I condone violence on any TDCJ officers. We as a union will not bow down or sink down to that level of “swine”. Our peaceful demonstration of refusal to continue to slave for the State is to force and agitate the powers that be, and to pay Texas workers in TDCJ. Just as they charge you for “medical”, “indigent mail”, “craft shop”, etc. it makes absolutely no sense that any man should not be paid to work, to pay his way through life in TDCJ, to afford basic hygiene products, and pay for phone calls and medical independently.

Every unit in Texas that is ready to get paid: “Stop Texas Slavery” is going to be the first message we all need to send to our oppressors. “Sabotage on Texas Farm Equipment” has really started trending in Texas. My heart goes out to John Deere. Rest in Pieces, or Rust in Pieces. Whatever.

If you agree with taking workers’ power back into the hands of the people I am asking every Texas inmate and staff member to contact my current branch of Industrial Workers of the World-Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee in Kansas City, Missouri. Send your letters of support and solidarity directly to:

Subject: “Standin’ with Z in TDCJ”

I am going to continue to organize and I am officially forming the first Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee-Texas Branch. So, if you are a “man in white” or “woman in white”, we do not discriminate based on gender. This is a revolutionary movement on a grand scale and we are recruiting members now in Texas. Due to high rate of administrative retaliation we advice “sex offenders” to stand down. We appreciate you standing with us, but we cannot allow that image to hinder our movement.

To all of my future comrades in the struggle, I share some writings of a friend known all over the country for organizing nationwide work stoppage in America: Anarchist Sean Swain, regular guest on The Final Straw Radio with Bursts O’Goodness as host:

Excerpt from Freedom: The Insight, Rage & Fury of Political Prisoner Sean Swain

In the following analysis, I have attempted to demonstrate how tools of cultural genocide that have been honed throughout US history are now employed effectively and with predictable results upon the imprisoned. I describe processes as I have witnessed them in operation and I attribute to the State as a motive for their current use, consistent with the State’s motive for their previous uses. However, you will note in the title that I have used the term “culture war” rather than “cultural genocide”.

I do this because, possibly to my own detriment, I am not qualified to argue that “the imprisoned” compose a particular class or group, that we share a unified identity that makes us the geno against which genocide is employed.

Such an argument becomes difficult because the State contends it treats prisoners as it does not for what we are but for what we do. In previous eras, Native Americans were targeted for who they were, not for what they did. Slaves too were subjected to cultural genocide for who they were.

While the same weapons and methods employed in the genocide of both of those groups are now employed by the State against the imprisoned, the State has a a veneer of legitimacy when it claims it targets us for what we have done and not for who we are!

Of course, this is a lie. One may effectively argue as well that it is more than just ironic that the minority groups targeted for cultural genocide now comprise the majority of the imprisoned, against whom the same methods of genocide are being employed. When these arguments are made effectively, and they should be, I will gladly change the title of this analysis from “cultural war” to “cultural genocide”. I firmly believe the imprisoned represent a specific group: the potential revolutionary, the most likely to defy the demands of a fascist, reactionary control State.

I believe we are the new savages, the new slaves, and we are subject to cultural genocide at the hands of a ruthless state not for what we do, but for the potential of who we would otherwise become if not for the cultural genocide.

In other words, this cultural genocide is designed to assassinate Crazy House or Malcolm X, to abort Cochise and Assasta Shakur while they are still in the womb, before they ever actualize! The State has adopted the philosophy that Bob Marley eloquently attributes to Sheriff John Brown: “Kill it before it grows”.

Kill it before it grows. The State kills the revolutionary potential of the proletariat. That is the true function of the prison slave complex as it employs the tools of cultural genocide.

“The most powerful weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed”

-Stephen Biko

“(The colonized) do not need to be exterminated anymore. No, the most urgent thing is to humiliate them, to wipe out the pride in their hearts, to reduce them to the level of animals. The body will be allowed to live on, but the spirit will be destroyed. Tame, train, punish: those are the words that obsess the colonizer”

-Ward Churchill

“The people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of history”

-Mao Zedong

This is the time to unite for the biggest issues in Texas: parole legislation change, pay wages for all workers in Texas, end of prison slavery, end of solitary confinement. Industrial Workers of the World has our back, with the tools and man power, girl power, solidarity, direct action to take the power back, to end the oppression in TDCJ. No more free labor until we see legislation set it in stone. Parole, pay wages, end Texecution, solitary confinement, end the tradition of Texas sanctioned slavery.

Texas is way too far behind in the Criminal Justice game. We should be the example to all our smaller states. Let’s get our rights back. Unite: “Unconditional Work Stoppage” until we get our shit back in our favor.

Go to Brianna Peril at IWOC-KC and raise up on TDCJ. It’s over with. They gotta pay. Unite. Unite. Unite. Drop all forms of free labor until they get their hearts right at Texas State Capital. See for yourself. Join the One Big Union.

The Texas Crucible at Dirty Darrington Slave Plantation and Concentration Camp – by Julio A. Zuniga, July 2020

How can people, organizers, abolitionists hacktivists, media, families of the general population ignore the largest monument of Confederacy in Texas? Texas Department of Minimal Justice is once again using oppressive tactics to cover up their own flaws. When will the black and brown communities stop swallowing their pride and allowing the racist regime to continue systematically stripping all rights from us slaves?

TDCJ director says TDCJ has a contraband problem, so they further oppress the families and inmates from the only true ray of hope and light that we have. Our mailrooms are denying every fucking thing: Onion paper with a drawing on it, a magazine because one page has a breast showing… Now, mind you, there is no A/C, no visitations, no creative tools on commissary, no virtual contact with family, no TVs in our cells, not a chance at parole, even during a pandemic. There is nothing left but to revolt, there is no real solution in restricting mail to combat your so called contraband issue. It’s all a farce. It’s not the reason for this oppression.

Contraband is easily resolved by paying work wages to inmates, ending indigence among the population, thus choking out the need to hustle for toothpaste and deodorant. By paying work wages to the working man it also ends sexual assaults in prison and sexual harassment of female staff. This is a real solution and it needs to be addressed by the families of the enslaved, straight to your Texas government, and not the Republican death squads neither. We understand all too well that we are 2nd class citizens and we must work that much harder to live in your societies, but how can we live without the basics? Your politicians are pocketing millions of agribusiness dollars and syphoning your tax dollars on top of it and you dare not ask where it goes? Dirty Darrington is a monument of slavery, torture, a hypocritical institution. In its face you will see a Bible college in all its splendor, cranking out field ministers by record numbers. Nothing wrong there, but take a stroll 100 yards south and no longer do you see Jesus, but a satanic cult of slave drivers and their machines to destroy thousands of acres of land and enslave men to death in triple digit heat. Welcome to Rosharon.

There is a chapel and at the sides of this chapel are segregated areas with no restrooms. Inmates are forced to defecate on this recreation area where people are playing basketball 4 feet away. It’s a Christian Baptist seminary college, yet solitary confinement is forcing people to suicide, attempted suicides, destroying sanity of the men who reside there for petty disciplinary cases. Here’s a challenge: I challenge anyone to find out exactly how many people have lost their minds and/or died by suicide under the direct care of Major Pharr, the person responsible for the men in administrative segregation areas. Here’s a thought: How about the people protest TDCJ HQ – Lorie Davis and demand them to pick a side – Christianity or Luciferianism. Stop all the sick hypocrisy. We can’t breathe down here. We need positive changes to be brought to this racist slave camp. No more bullshit Texas politicians giving us promises that aren’t worth a damn.

The only thing keeping people alive today is the contraband, and since Texas cannot tax it, it’s all demonized. Now you have imposed your solution, and so we demand pay, wages for offenders. We want new technology to visit virtually with our families, JP4s, or corrlinks instituted immediately. Families want to see their sons or be able to email back-n-forth.

Texas needs to come together to protest these Confederates in Huntsville and in the State Capital. You can ask any of the 300,000 inmates if they agree. I dare you. There is no such thing as good time/work time credit. Ask any criminology department in Texas and they will tell you it’s a control tool to keep us docile. I tell the entire population: you are losing nothing by protesting, demonstrating, uprising. They lock us down at will anyway, so make it about your rights. These people are not writing letters of recommendation or anything that resembles real recognition. Millions of dollars were spent in March/April on brand new surveillance cameras at Dirty Darrington, hundreds of them. During a medical lockdown they brought outside people to install these tools of oppression and entrapment. I’ve never seen them used for what the TDCJ says they are for.

There is nothing left for us. Nothing. So now I’m going to the public to ask respectfully to bring your pots and pans, demonstrate your love and support at the very grounds where these atrocities are undergoing further aggressive tactics to silence and hide their true face of racist hate.

This isn’t justice. It’s sanctioned murder, torture, prison slavery. If we want racism to end, start with the 13th amendment. We can’t breathe! I am asking to bring all these issues directly to Texas Governor Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. Let them feel loss, stop voting for them. Stop voting for racist slave drivers. Today I am every mother and father, son, daughter, niece and nephew, black, white, brown, no matter what race, we want humans to unite and direct the protests to Dirty Darrington unit. Show yourselves. Stand with us in solidarity. Please, for humanity sake. We cannot end racism if these racist institutions continue to thrive. Please understand, progressive change is vital. Take a look at the shit TDCJ covered up in Sugarland, Texas: the 95 contract slaves found. What reparations they can give is ending prison slavery, ending solitary confinement. Solutions come from communities, not the Republicans in the State capital. Just look at the history of Travis County Jail. Black men lynched for petty crimes. It’s no different today and it’s getting worse.

Please contact your nearest IWW/IWOC and let them know you are standing in solidarity with Comrade Z to bring progressive change to all TDCJ torture chambers. We have to end the racist regime that is TDCJ. Start here: ask about the dilapidated conditions we live in. Ask about the chicken coop. Go see for yourself what TDCJ has operating all over Huntsville. Come and bring the media. Bring the noise. Bring the your local representatives. Come and see exactly what TDCJ is all about. We can’t breathe. All the men are crying for their mamas, just like George Floyd, who was from Houston, Texas. His spirit lives here. Come and see. Black Lives Matter is right to bring down Confederate monuments. Texas has 92 to 100 of such monuments and all of them use the Confederate gray suite. See things for what they are. We can’t breathe.

Please contact every media outlet, from every city in Texas and let’s organize a solid demonstration at all Confederate concentration camps. Let the men in white know that it’s okay to lay it down for the sake of change. They need you to give them the confidence. You the families, the mothers, will you help us get the TDCJ knee off our necks? We can’t breathe. We can’t breathe! We… can’t… breathe!!

To begin: contact these groups to find out how you can get involved. Contact: Central Texas ABC, Austin ABC, Fight Toxic Prisons, IWW-DC, IWW-Sante Fe, Kansas City IWOC, Oakland IWOC. Contact all media to begin interviewing Comrade Z, who is standing up against solitary confinement, Texecution, prison slavery, prison rape, mailroom Nazism. Racism in Texas ends by killing the very constitution that sanctions Confederacy.

TeKKK$a$: Where Black Lives Have Never Mattered – by Comrade Monsour

Comrades, I am offering this piece as a part of the ongoing discussion surrounding the current socio-political movement in the furtherance of New Afrikan designation and human rights. Specifically, the topic of defacing or destroying symbols, statues and institutions representative of oppression and exploitation. Many people fail to group the significance of such actions and thus incorrectly label such as senseless banditry. That couldn’t be further from the truth and this essay is written with the intention of telling you why.

Conquest and Historical Markers:

Going back since the days of the Roman Empire, which Amerikkka is modeled after, or maybe further, civilizations have gone through great lengths to create historical markers to solidify their expansion, exploitation and conquest of another civilization or nation. These markers are often statues, schools, or some other cultural identifier. Each and every one of these are instituted as recognition of one oppressed nation’s subjugation under an oppressor nation.

In this case the so called ‘white’ nation of Amerikkkans is and has been the oppressor of New Afrikan people. Each and every removal or attempted removal of these type of symbols indicate, or should indicate, that the masses are not ignorant as to who is the cause of our misery. Some conscious people feel as though “What is that gonna solve?” or “That’s not gonna liberate us”. The latter of which is true. However, the liberation of a colonized or semi-colonized nation occurs in stages, not one moment.

As to the first question, one must first understand that the oppressed nationalities or internal semi-colonies within Amerikkka are in the first stage of liberation. The first stage is characterized by an ongoing war of the people’s consciousness. Many radical elements often articulate the importance of winning over the masses. This is because without winning over the masses liberation will not be possible. For, as often stated, “It is the masses who make history”.

So often we get caught up in raising consciousness via literature, panels or other platforms of dialogue, yet we forget that practice advances consciousness faster and further than theory. The act of being engaged in such a feat as dismantling a centuries old statue or the renaming of an institution provides experience in struggle against the oppressor, the State apparatus which is, of course, owned and controlled by a predominately, but not exclusively, white bourgeoisie-capitalist-imperialist class.

With that said, it is of paramount importance that those engaged masses come to the understanding of WHY such actions are significant and what those symbols and institutions uphold and represent. It is not merely “racism” that these symbols and institutions uphold. These sort of “monuments” are symbols of victory, the victory of war.

When we understand that, we’ll also see that we, New Afrikans, along with other oppressed nations and our allies, are and have been at war. Such war is due to our continued colonization here on occupied Turtle Island a.k.a. Amerikkka. Thus the eradicating of these symbols is a message that we, the people, are reigniting our offensive in this war. We are erasing that victory and beginning another battle. This is the understanding we must adopt and promote, for we are not a conquered people. We are a nation of New Afrikans and a united front of oppressed people on a move.

Tekkk$a$ and Property:

The imperialist state of Tekkk$a$ is the ultimate symbol of white supremacist, imperialist ideology. When one thinks of Tekkk$a$ often there are thoughts of “racism”, invasion, theft, corruption and proud arrogance. Many folkkks on the opposite end of the political spectrum as those who may destroy federal or state monuments often spew the rhetoric when organizing for counter-insurgency, that they’re protecting “their” property. Often insurgent types have no property to protect, which is indicative of the class divide in the U$ Empire, in that it is predominately dictated by the white Amerikkkan oppressor nation. It is also of significance to note that not all that long ago New Afrikans were considered “property” and that the War of 1836, as well as the Civil War, were fought because white supremacist elements, colonizers and capitalists desired to “protect property” (New Afrikan slaves).

While it is widely known that Tekkk$a$ is stolen land from Mexico, the white occupying force has established “property” and institutions in every facet of society to “Remember the Alamo”. That is, to celebrate the victory of a war of invasion, theft and imperialist exploitation that was fought not merely or the right to “independence”, as we’re taught in so called “Texas history” class, but that war was fought in the defense of the institution of Afrikan and New Afrikan slavery and white supremacy.

The founding of what we know as Tekkk$a$ dates back to 1821, when the relatively newly independent Mexican republic granted a petition from one Moses Austin, to establish an anglo-Amerikkkan colony in Texas. In January 1821 the petition was granted. The deal did not make mention of slavery on either side, yet the colonizers that Moses Austin intended to have settle in his Texas colony were slave holding anglo-Amerikkkans from the old KKKonfederate south. Moses, however, would not survive the migration to San Antonio De Baxar. Therefore the land grant subsequent oppressor nations’ invasion and colonization of Texas was inherited by Stephen Fuller Austin, his son.

Stephen F. Austin, then only twenty-eight, was a staunch and avowed white supremacist. He adhered to the view that Anglo-Saxons were chosen by God to rule the world, with Afrikan, Asian, and indigenous peoples subjugated under “white” rule. Austin drew up the plan for the distribution of Tekkk$a$’ land, which Lester G. Bugbee described in his book Slavery in Texas this way:

“This plan, after making provision for the head of the family and allowing a liberal portion for the wife and each child, further provided for a grant of eighty acres of land for each slave belonging to the family. In approving this plan, the government of Mexico, through its representative in Texas, acquiesced in and substantially encouraged the introduction of slaves into the new settlement. A great many immigrants found their way into Texas before the summer of 1822, most of them bearing contracts signed by Austin or his agents, in which they were promised land in accordance with the plan already mentioned. They were nearly all from the southern portion of the United States, and many of them were the owners of at least a small number of slaves. Thus it was that the institution was introduced into Texas.”

We see here that the colony of Tekkk$a$, which would become its own KKKountry prior to being one of the United States, was indeed, as the saying goes, “founded on the backs of Afrikan people”, not merely through the back breaking slave labor but because New Afrikan and Afrikan slasves were property that created more property, our people were the capital of the KKKriminals who founded Tekkk$a$. How many well-to-do anglo-Amerikkkan Tekkk$an families owe a alrge portion of their inter-generational wealth to New Afrikans? Thus it is rational to state that the expropriation and/or destruction of Tekkk$a$ KKKapital or symbols of imperialist victory, are reparations and righteous, justified actions when carried out by the oppressed victims (Chicanos, New Afrikans, Mexicanos, Indigenous) of the Tekkk$a$ occupying force.

Erase a Legacy of Oppression and White Supremacy:

In Tekkk$a$ there stands a number of institutions or symbols that uphold the Tekkk$an legacy of white supremacy, slavery and exploitation. Only naming a few, of course there is the state’s capital and its largest city named after white supremacist slave owners, the aforementioned Stephen F Austin and Sam Houston. There are a number of schools and universities named in honor of both of these characters. In Houston, the city of the slave owner and a man who defended white supremacy with his life blood on the battlefield, there is a public highway named in his honor, the Sam Houston Parkway or Beltway. Houston is the fourth largest city in occupied Turtle Island. One can only guess the number of Chicanos and New Afrikans who travel this highway daily, monthly, yearly, all the while having the arrogant stamp of occupation and slavery looming over their heads.

Still there are more, such as schools in Houston, by no coincidence in ghettos and barrios, named in honor of even more white supremacist and defenders and practitioners of Afrikan slavery (which was outlawed in 1808, but was still practiced in Tekkk$a$ as an “illegal” smuggling for New Afrikan bodies), such as provisional President of the KKKonfederacy, Jefferson Davis (J. Davis High School), Robert E Lee high school in southwest Houston (named in “honor” of the infamous general of the KKKonfederacy). There is a Stephen F Austin high school, a Dick Dowling middle school, attended primarily by New Afrikan kids from the surrounding ghettos on the southside of Houston, the slave master’s city. Dick Dowling was a KKKonfederate and slave owner, a white supremacist. There are more, but for the sake of space and time I’ll stop the list here.

I would like to put forth the notion that Tekkk$a$ youth, radicals, abolitionists and proclaime revolutionaries, should organize, mobile and call for the renaming of these schools. This call and action should also be directed at the universities, highway and city names “honoring” these devilish men of the past. Those who uphold the legacy of slavery of New Afrikan people or the theft and exploitation of Aztlan have a choice. Rename these institutions at the behest of the people or have them deface and destroyed.

More on Tekkk$a$ and Its Legacy of Black Lives Don’t Matter:

Tekkk$a$ has had and continues to have a culture that arrogantly upholds all manner of white supremacy. Tekkk$an$ of the “white” or anglo-Amerikkkan occupying force have always gone to great lengths to dehumanize New Afrikan, Chicano and Indigenous people.

After the Haitian revolution ended in 1804 whites feared that a similar mass slave rebellion could be ignited by New Afrikans in North Amerikkka. The general public fear was that, if the oppressor nation whites continued unabated the transportation of Afrikan slaves that New Afrikans would be the dominate population. To dwell such a dreaded reality the “trading” of slaves became illegal in North Amerikkka in 1808.

Of course, the “law” has never stopped white supremacy, nor the dehumanization of Afrikans. The east Tekkk$a$ town of Sabine Lake became a focal point in the “other” underground railroad, the one that led to slavery, not away from it.

“Many Afrikans brought to Sabine Lake were kidnapped British free men from Barbados, Afrikan indentured servants from the same region, or were kidnapped from Spanish slave ships. James Bowie, later of Alamo fame, realized a $65,000 profit from illegally transporting and selling 1,500 Afrikans from Sabine Lake into Louisiana.”

“Slave traders like Bowie purchased African-Americans from privateers like Jean Lafitte. Privateers would capture Spanish slave ships, imprison the Africans in slave pens, such as on Lafitte’s Galveston Island, Texas stronghold, then sell them to the highest bidder. American slavers continued the profitable traffic in Africans until the end of the Civil War.”

The above two quotes are derived from the book Civil War Slavery and are also quoted in Tom Big Warrior’s essay ‘The Legal Justification of Slavery in Amerikkka’.

James Bowie is “honored” today in many ways. From the knife named after him, to the notoriously white supremacist north Tekkk$a$ town of Bowie to the recent (2015) placard that was placed upon entering Bowie, Tekkk$a$, which stated, “Welcome to Bowie, Niggers Not Welcome After Dark”.

Bowie is known for staunch Klan activity. Many active Klansman have been known to work as prison guards at the James V. Allred Unit in Iowa Park, Tekkk$a$, where their knack for sadistic, racially motivated acts of hatred go unseen to the public eye.

Jean Lafitte, the privateer, kidnapper, murderer and slave trader mentioned above, whom held New Afrikans in pens like hogs, was “honored” by having a housing project in New Orleans named after him. The symbolism shouldn’t be lost on anyone. A person who had a slave pen to keep New Afrikan bodies in bondage, his name is representative of a high rise housing project designed for the housing of New Afrikans during a time when segregation laws and practices, among other things, were in place to keep New Afrikans in bondage.

In the book Really Remember The Alamo by William Kincaid, the author outlines the legacy of New Afrikan subjugation in Tekkk$a$ like this:

“In the September of 1829 slavery was prohibited in Mexico. Because the politically connected Texans were outraged, one month later, the law was changed to allow slavery only in Texas. A few months later in early 1830 Mexico altered its policy under a new government that was less interested in catering to Texas. Mexico passed a law that prohibited further American settlement, and banned importation of additional slaves into Texas. Stephen Austin presented a petition for independence to the Mexican government in 1833, and was then arrested and jailed, until 1835. At that time, there was about 20,000 Texans and 4,000 slaves in Texas. In December of 1835, General Antonio Santa Anna amended the slavery laws banning slavery in Texas. The Texans immediately rebelled and declared that they were seceded from Mexico.”

Kincaid continues by stating:

“One month after the Alamo, in March of 1836, Texas adopted a constitution which included a provision declaring slavery was legal in Texas. In April, Texans rallied under Sam Houston and “Remember the Alamo”. They defeated the Mexicans, declared the Republic of Texas, ratified the Texas constitution and requested US statehood as a slave state. The Mexican/American War was fought about 10 years after the Alamo, and added a buffer territory between the slave states and slave free Mexico, where many Africans had escaped to freedom.”

The constitution of 1845, ratified after the U$ annexed Tekkk$a$, defined New Afrikans as personal property. New Afrikans weren’t allowed to marry nor form a family, though many oppressors side stepped this law, allowing marriages and families, seeing that such increased the production rate and could also be used as a tool to control slaves via their families.

New Afrikans couldn’t protect themselves with arms or otherwise, being that it was also illegal to strike anyone white. New Afrikans couldn’t assemble or use the courts against the anglo oppressor nation people,

Tekkk$a$ today has a reputation for administering the death penalty and the unjust sentence of LWOP at a higher rate than other states. Like everywhere else, these penalties are utilized tools of national oppression against semi-colonized nationalities (New Afrikans, Chicanos, Indigenous). This practice is steeped in so-called “racism” and white supremacist capitalism.

In the early years of Tekkk$a$ (1840s), whippings were stated as an acceptable punishment for New Afrikans for minor “crimes” such as petty theft. For serious “crimes”, New Afrikans automatically received the death penalty and there were many lynched for no reason at all. My mind harkens back to the murders of Sandra Bland a few years and Hasan Shakur, Black August 31, 2006. Both were innocent New Afrikan freedom fighters lynched by the state apparatus apparatus of Tekkk$a$. May them both Rest in Power.

In the 1850s Tekkk$a$ considered slavery essential to its economy. By 1861 Tekkk$a$ had about 200,000 New Afrikan slaves. This was at the beginning of the Civil War when many KKKonfederate slave holders and big time plantation owners who were too affluent to fight in the Civil War, sent their slaves to Tekkk$a$ to prevent federal troops from freeing them. The reputation of Tekkk$an$’ staunch defense of slavery and dehumanization of Afrikan-ness was already well established. This was why there were so many slaves unaware of the supposed Emancipation Proclamation when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston on June 19th 1865, declaring all laws of Tekkk$a$ since 1861 were illegal. Lets not forget, the slave holders did not give up their “property” willfully. Even on Juneteenth they had to be forced by armed combat to relinquish their “property”.

The same rings true today, as New Afrikans, Chicano and First Nations’ self-determination is considered the white oppressor nation’s “property”, which they will not relinquish except by force of arms.

In Conclusion:

By any and all means necessary, we must FREE Tekkk$a$, FREE Aztlan and FREE New Afrika!

The general public must be made to understand that Tekkk$a$ slavery and exploitation continues unabated RIGHT NOW in each of the 100+ prisons owned and/or operated by the state. In the words of our newly freed Comrade Malik, “End prison slavery in Tekkk$a$”. Free political prisons held KKKaptive in Tekkk$a$’ gulags, such as our brother Xinachtli (Alvaro Luna Hernandez).

As it stands, the defacing and destroying of institutions, statues and the like that uphold this ugly legacy of Tekkk$a$ white supremacy and Amerikkkan imperialism is a conscious act of righteous justice, people’s justice.

As we continue to see in this den of murderers, kidnappers and thieves (Amerikkka), revolutionary people’s justice is the only justice we can get, for there is NO JUSTICE ON STOLEN LAND!

REBUILD!

Slums To Ashes: The Tragic Truth of the “War on Drugs” – by Noah “Kado” Coffin

Friday, August 28th 2020. Just another day that mirrors all those which came before it in the crowded confines of my stone and steel cage here in South Texas’ Eastham Unit. Just now it is blisteringly hot as the horrid Texas sun bakes this red brick oven. In a few weeks it’ll be freezing cold. My life is in phases of extremes. Extreme poverty, followed by extreme Justice, then extreme isolation and extreme hot or cold. The emotional roller coaster is certainly an extreme ride.

Covid-19 quarantine lock downs have meant no visitations, limited access to 5 minute call attempts, (only two tries of connecting before you go to the end of a long line and damn if family or friends have jobs or schedules…) and peanut butter or egg sandwiches 99% of this year. Not much to do except wait for a letter, workout as much as you dare on such a meal plan and if you’re able to – read a book.

When the cop shows up at my door telling me to “cuff up” I already see what kind of day today has become. As the noise and chatter of 51 segregated prisoners fall to a complete hush, I realize that they know too. Anyone who’s done “hard time” (as solitary confinement is coined) knows intimately what such an instance foretells…

I can vividly recall from early childhood my mothers’ trip to prison for small time dealing. A single widow with six kids on welfare in the South Texas slums. Supplementing her income of 2.15 per hour “plus tips” by hustling joints and dimes to folks needing a bit more escape than what their Busch or Keystone could offer. A good ol’ American bust on the dreaded drug war front line. I shudder to think of how many casualties my widowed mother would have just piled up had Uncle Sam not put her away and shatter her already fractured home.

Even more detailed in memory, I’m able to call up images of a sick and bedridden mother who can’t stop throwing up, using the toilet or hold down anything but iced milk because she’d run out of her “pain management medication”. Oh, but the dealer had a permit. That dealer sold for the Pharma Cartel and Uncle Sam got his cut, so nevermind that the legal heroin they spoon fed my struggling mother was beyond addictive, deadlier than black tar for its availability and addictive properties – it had the approval of Congress.

So I don my ridiculous Covid-19 mask, submit to restraints and I’m escorted to the desk of a L.T. I’ve done this a time or three during my hard time stint and even once before in General Population. Ten years of Texas Tuff Justice and I’m already running out of reasons for a trip like this.

The L.T. Dials a number I know yet have seldom called due to these restraints and my custody level. He says a few words and hits speaker phone so I could share this travesty with him. My oldest brother is hesitant and uncertain as he tells me of my mothers overdose. Many voices I’ve not heard in a decade or longer come through on the speaker. They are people I once knew, like my mother, but a decade is a long time and so I cannot say I know them now. Time changes people. Once I learn the whole situation I’m obligated to end my brother’s hopes that I could attend the service. (I’m not able to attend a shower alone, without restraints and an escort) I ask for photos and suddenly I want to be anywhere but in that office. I need to do pull ups until my rusted locker pulls down off the wall and so I cut the call short. My social skill aren’t what they once were. My brother concedes that he has to cremate Mom. We’re a poor family. Seems my mother never made it far in her life. She never left the confines of her poverty or addiction. She struggled to get SSI until she died. Well there’s a few mountain peaks far from this nightmare my mother lived and died in and I think I’ll take those ashes to the heights and let them fly when or if I leave this place. 60 months to discharge and 120 months done, but my casualties have been pretty substantial thus far.

By the time that sanctioned dope ended my mothers’ life and struggle it had eaten through her stomach. (She had feces in her stomach when they tried to pump it) As I reread an article by John Whitehead titled “Tomato Gardeners: The Latest Victim in the Government’s War on Drugs” I cannot fathom the elitists voracious appetite for wealth, nor by which means they’ll go to gather that abundance. It’s not about those peoples’ potential drug operation. It’s about money. The government will supply a dealer the product, offer them protection, bailouts if they need, tax cuts and benefits and a retirement if they’ll sling dope for ol’ Uncle Sam, but if you’re in any way trying to hold out then they’ll come at you with an organized force that no cartel or mafia in all of history could rival. Your taxes fund that capability and our collective ignorance, complacence and “look the other way, not my issue” attitude allow it to continue. Whitehead’s article exposes a turf war, not a war on drugs! Marijuana?! Come on people! Go to any place a dispensary is “legal” and that’s A-OK because that’s Uncle Sam’s block and his product.

Don’t mistake me here. I’m not for dealing rights – obviously I’m not that fond of dope. I see it for its truth – a cafe and an assault on the people. Dulling the senses and making them pliable. What better way to rule a mass of subjects than to drug them and zombify them? Inside these walls it’s done with other “less fun” drugs, but it all works in much the same way. Control and power to proceed as pleased.

People, just wake up. Don’t be fooled by slight of hand or slick explanations. Don’t listen to what people or government tell you. Look at what’s being done. They can call raids on a homestead tomato farmer, or a poverty stricken widow, a drug war policy, but if you really just tune out their rhetoric and look at the situation you’d see it for what it is. Why the muscle of military and police would be applied on potential small time dealers if that same entity sells it “legit”? That’s easy to see, but if people are stoned on legal dope or duped by the word game then it’s not so easy to make the connection. This isn’t just advice on how to spot a government turf war. It needs to be applied to every situation concerning the government (or to personal life). Look at it. Don’t take anyone’s word for it.

In Solidarity,

Slow Down and Love Someone – by Jeffrey Prager

Today I want to talk to you about making the people that you love feel as loved as you say. You never know what someone is going through mentally or how long they may still be around.

My name is Jeffrey Prager, 30, and I’m currently at a psychiatric prison facility in east Texas. Suicidal thoughts get me here. What triggered them? In the next few paragraphs I’m going to give you a brief depiction of my life and explain why it is important to “slow down and love someone”.

I grew up with a pedophile father who was very abusive mentally, physically and sexually. At a young age I was beaten, molested, locked in a closet, forced to eat dog food, forced to stand and kneel on rice till my feet and knees bled. I was bullied by both my brothers and sisters.

After a few suicide attempts, I felt enough was enough and ran away. I was 14 years old. This is when my life of crime and drugs started. I used alcohol, weed, pills, heroin and meth to help me cope with the long time effects of the abuse I endured. To pay for the drugs I burglarized, stole and robbed. I was 19 when I went to prison for the first time.

When I was released from a 18 month bid on a 3 year sentence I decided to get my life on track. I landed me a job, made a friend and met a beautiful woman I had a beautiful daughter with. I was mentally in heaven. That is until I came home from work one night to find my best friend in bed with my fiance. I was so crushed I went back to drugs. The drugs led me to lose my job and back to the life of crime until I went to prison again.

When I was released I decided to give the right path a chance again for my daughter. I got me a job, car, place to stay and met another beautiful woman. Life was good. I fathered a second daughter in 2016. I thought everything was perfect till I found my now ex in bed with a stranger. I was DESTROYED and back on the path of drugs and crime.

I am now serving a 15 year sentence for robbery. It’s been a very hard sentence because I lost my mom to suicide. Both sets of grandparents found out my youngest daughter wasn’t mine and 12 weeks ago I received the news that my only biological child passed away because of Covid-19.

Although I feel defeated I was strong enough to ask for help. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about suicide. Someone out there, please help me. If you have dealt with the loss of a child and gotten over it, please write me so I can get through this battle.

Also, if you love someone with your whole heart please show them so because you never know what they are going through. Not everybody is strong enough to ask for help. Slow down and love someone.

Looking forward to feedback

FUCK YOUR SYSTEMS – by Comrade K@do

Do you take sunshine for granted? I don’t In the 6+ years of solitary confinement now coined “Restrictive Housing” due to “legal push back”, I’ve had zero sunlight. The 4+ years prior to that in General Population was much the same. “Short staffed” is often the excuse, but the staffing explanation isn’t even necessary as, much to my disdain, people simply lay down and accept this! It’s a push, a nudge, a testing of the fortifications. The elitists for time immemorial have patiently tested methods of control and subjugation. Like a slow boil to a toad in the pot these methods have reached the boiling point and the people simply take what’s crammed down their throats. Those who don’t take it laying down think they’re in the action but fail to realize they’ve swallowed whole an indoctrination of propaganda and lies thus too becoming a tool for the very machine that oppresses and manipulates us all to its agenda. Systems which are created by the minds of elitist pigs can not be “reformed”. They simply must cease to exist. Pursuit of “legal” actions is pro-system and anti-freedom. The legal action to end inhumane solitary in Texas was successful in changing the name of solitary to “Restrictive Housing”. I see no change. I’m still here.

Fight The New Normal – by Noah Coffin

Covid-19, whether real, imagined or blown outta proportion, there lies behind this scene a very real threat to us all non-elite. Check out Senate Bill HR 6666 116 Congress. If that doesn’t give you cause for pause, then this chip patent Code 060606 should. The well-known elitist Bill Gates is funding Powerhouse behind its production. Further, this guy is the man behind the curtain for the Imperial College London, which is where all statistics aired on mainstream media outlets (all of which in the past have been far below actual numbers), are modeled. Over in China Covid-19 immediately ended all protests in Hong Kong, Wuhan and another major city close by. Convenient.

Following the “pandemic” one could easily see that people are being especially agreeable with anything governments implement, while too accepting “stimulus bills” without question or protest. Trillions of tax dollars have been now used by government without so much as question from the frightened sheep in the United States. For your thoughts, 330 million residents reside here in the USA, give or take. A mere $1,200 was given to each pending approval. The 2.2 trillion dollar bill could have allowed a million each without touching the change on that bill!! Corporate America is booming while little guys like Mom-and-Pop stores go under.

Bill Gates has recently invested in medical supplies, along with many elite entities, but did so a month or more before this “pandemic” struck. Wake up out there!!! People have died, sure. Yet each year there’s between 40-100 thousand flu deaths in America alone. Sucks, but don’t let government use fear to tighten the leash on you. “Never allow a good crisis to go to waste” – a very familiar statement. Socialism = Communism & Communism = Totalitarianism. Resist government control or be forever held prisoner by those freedoms you’ve relinquished to them. People seem to forget that governments only are as powerful as you let them be. All this Dog & Pony Show politics have created complacent and ignorant fools ready to believe any load of crap their favorite candidate puts out. Bill Gates openly speaks for population control. Do you trust guy making some vaccine for you? Check out those before mentioned bills, folks. It’s about to get real. Don’t be beaten by fear. It’s the type of weapon which time and time again elitists have used to win wars they couldn’t otherwise overcome. Don’t give up without a fight. Follow the money and you’ll see what’s really going on.

If you have family or friends locked up in prison or jail wherever – contact them. These are conditions where any kind of flu can be serious. Congested environments are breeding grounds for disease and prison is an ugly place to die. It’s oppressive, it’s lonely, hostile.

In closing, how about Gregg Abbott? Whether parole eligible or not, Mr. Abbott states, “We’re not letting anybody go”. I feel for anyone who came here with 2-years and dies of Covid-19. Parole is a joke when it’s “discretionary”.

END UNPAID LABOR: Stop Working for Free in TDC!!

Houston was right to reject a contract with a state program that exploits inmate workers. American businesses often bemoan the struggle to compete with companies making products in foreign countries where weak worker rights drive down the cost of labor.

Profiting off the exploitation of workers is as unfair as it is immoral. So why do we still allow it in Texas? It’s a question getting renewed attention after the Chronicle reported last week about two Houston city council members who took a quiet stand against the practice and won! As the Chronicle’s Dylan McGuiness reported, a low bid by the Texas Dept. of Minimal Justice on a deal to replace tire treading on city vehicles raised red flags for council members, especially Abbie Kamin.

As Kamin soon learned, the state agency was able to outbid the competition because it doesn’t just underpay its workers. With few exceptions, it doesn’t pay workers at all. In Texas, it seems, taking a person’s liberty isn’t punishment enough. We force them into servitude too.

Kamin and fellow council member Carolyn Evans-Shabazz quietly sent the contract back to Mayor Sylvester Turner and asked him to put out a new request for bids with language requiring compensation for workers. At the end of October, the city selected a private vendor, whose $4.6 million bid came in at about $422,000 more than TDCJ’s. We commend the city officials who chose the right thing, but that’s not where this should end.

The move should send a message to Texas officials and to anyone who profits off the work of unpaid incarcerated workers. It’s time to end this practice that carries the shameful tinge of slavery and the remnants of our state’s ugly history of convict leasing.

Texas is one of only five states, all in the south, where workers in correctional facilities are not paid. In 45 other states, the average minimum wage for the inmates is about 85 cents a day and the average maximum is $3.45, Wander Bertram, a spokesperson for the Prison Policy Initiative told the editorial board.

In Texas, which has one of the nation’s largest prison populations, any TDCJ inmate who is physically able to work is required to, but all are unpaid except inmates participating in the Prison Industries Enhancement certification program. They receive between $8.42 and $10.82 per hour, with the bulk of that going to pay for room and board, crime victim compensation and taxes. Currently 66 inmates are in that program. The 122,000-odd other offenders in TDCJ custody get NO PAY for jobs that include picking crops, making soap, building furniture and working in a tire retreading factory.

Their labor helps make the TCI one of the most profitable in the country. In the 2019 fiscal year, TCI reaped $73.8 million from sales from items such as mattresses, shoes, garments, brooms, license plates, soaps, furniture, and services including the installation of furniture and metal fencing and refurbishing school buses. The money goes to providing cost savings to the TDCJ and other eligible entities while providing incarcerated offenders with post-release employment readiness to increase their reentry success, according to the TDCJ website. The state is profiting from forced, free labor, just as it did during the racist Jim Crow-era system of convict leasing, in which black people were imprisoned often for violating unjust laws, leased by the state to companies and made to work without pay in sugar cane fields and railroads. It was wrong then, and it is wrong NOW.

Loss of freedom is already punishment for crime. We should not strip human beings of the dignity that comes from being compensated for work. There is value in vocational training and certification programs for incarcerated people and in the simple task of working, which can provide those in prison with a sense of purpose and structure. But denying incarcerated workers pay does nothing to aid rehabilitation or reentry into society.

More than 260,000 people have signed a petition calling for the end of prison labor, which was also a key demand during the 2018 Nationwide Prison Strike. This week, federal lawmakers were expected to introduce a joint resolution that would begin the process of amending the Constitution to update that language in the 13th Amendment that allows involuntary servitude as punishment for a crime. “We must take an overdue step towards those principles by ending the loophole in our ban on slavery”, Senator Jeff Merkley, a Democrat and one of the Resolutions sponsors, tweeted on Wednesday.

“No slavery, No exceptions”. That’s what my #abolitionamendment will do. If the proposal fails in committee during the current congress, Merkley told the Associated Press he plants to revive it next year. We urge congress to pass the resolution. In Texas, state representative Alma Allen plans to file a bill that would set pay standards for prisoners. A similar bill, which would have set a minimum pay of $1 per day, never made it out of committee last session.

When lawmakers convene in January, they’ll have another chance to do the right thing, both morally and economically in a state that loudly espouses the virtues of economic competition. Exploiting workers is wrong the world over – in China, in Bangladesh, and yes, in the Great State of Texas.

So lay it down Darrington. All eyes are on you. Make history now. Lay it down. You don’t have to work any more until you get your demands met.

UNCONDITIONAL WORK STOPPAGE AND WIN!!

Dear Anarchists – by Comrade Z

Dear Anarchists,

I come to speak about the personal stand that I am making against this slave camp. It is a known fact: Julio A. Zuniga, a.k.a. Comrade Z, is a certified member of IWW-IWOC. Said wobbly, is in fact a known activist to raise awareness about dangerous and illegal working conditions for any human being or animal. For the past months of the Coronavirus outbreak “Z” has been very effective in raising awareness and bringing in outside organizers to test, feed, clean, spray for insects, get phone calls, expose cruel and unusal treatment of offenders, reporting suicides and anything that is oppressive to the populace and reporting it to organizers and activists. We need organizers to register on TexasPrisonPhone.com and for media outlets to register to assist in organizing a strike at Dirty Darrington Farm. We need people to come and express solidarity on these grounds. We want the community to work to abolish solitary confinement, abolish disgusting work conditions and disgusting administrators who are abusing their positions and mistreating the workers at the Trustee Camp, like Lt. Wilcox and Major Penkowsky, who is the farm administrator. We need Sgt. Estrada and Sgt. Williams investigated for sanctioning the use of body-slamming offenders in hand restraints. Just this past weekend (October 15-20) it occurred. Its shakedown team officers Sandoval, Obaseki and others that are finding it real easy to assault inmates for no reason. We need these tactics that killed George Floyd to end here in this slave camp. Workers who do not have energy after slaving on the camp do not pose a threat in hand restraints. This needs to be taken directly to the regional director and the state capital. Their design has failed society and only serves their personal interests. I find myself with minimal means in combating the entire population. I need everyone to rise up and bring the heaviest, hardest campaign of love and solidarity. We need people out there to insist and encourage all members of the prison population in Texas to stop working for the state of Texas for free. They are abusing their power and using violence to keep slaves scared of them so they don’t try to say or do anything to expose them. You know what I say? Fuck Warden Armstrong, fuck Asst. Warden Chevalier and Warden Powers. Fuck Major Pharr and Major Gooden, the walking sexual harrassment himself. Fuck Captain Cooper, Lt. Brooks, Lt. Wilcox, Lt. “Dumbo”ya. Fuck classification for abusing the mentally ill. Fuck all of these motherfuckers. Let me show you all what “workers power” can do. This is a call to arms. Without you, I’m standing against all of these people alone. Register your #s. Help me organize this all out strike. We are not being treated the way a worker should be. People are being forced to work under threat of violence, under threat of solitary confinement and starvation. If this is policy, then all of their PREA posters and logos need to be removed, because administration is raping everyone. We need outside families to acknowledge that this is not justice. It’s racist, it’s slavery, it’s also a death camp. I will do everything to expose each member of TDCJ-Darrington in all their Confederate ideology. We live in 2020, not 1933. With all the suicides occurring, why nobody is asking for these warden’s resignations is beyond me. I need some serious communication with hardcore abolitionists who have time to agitate with me steadily. The more the merrier. We’ve got a lot of work to cover and without communication this is just getting worse by the minute. Last but not least, I am wondering how my ideology get’s retaliated against. For trying to do good for the workers, my tattoo magazines get denied. I noticed that while they say it is “sexually explicit” material, even though it’s not. Ms. Ford denies my 1040 forms and the guy behind me, I watched her give him books on “pimpology”, Penthouse and little naked women photos. I had just had a conversation with her about them retaliating on me for being an IWW-IWOC member. She denies it, yet the “sexually explicit” material is only being held from me. Solidarity in the form of a 1040 is sexually explicit? This is retaliation and I need it addressed by fellow workers. In the meantime, I need to begin organizing a strike for Squad 4/5 on H-Line, for abusive treatment of workers and foul working conditions with no safety equipment and a lack of medical treatment for the sick. We need help and I’m waiting for someone to help me steadily push this issue. All available hands on deck. To all fellow workers that have catapulted me this far, thank you. I appreciate y’all for the love and solidarity. These are the names of the entire operation’s slave drivers who do not advocate for better portions of food, safety equipment or medical: Lt. Sylvester, Sgt. Gilbert, Sgt. Irvan, Officer Eleoba, Officer Ellis and Officer Gipson. Field squad and Major Penkowsky need to get to know us pretty well, starting now. Please do not take this lightly and do not hesitate to attack the farm on your own terms. I can use all the help I can get.

Solidarity,

Z
