Message from Keith “Malik” Washington for IWW-GOB and Freedom Fighters everywhere!

Revolutionary Greetings Fellow Workers and Comrades everywhere!!
It is I Comrade Malik reporting in from Behind Enemy Lines. I am now on my way to a Federal U.S. Penitentiary in Louisiana known as USP Pollock. The greatest threats to my safety that I face from the Oppressors are Isolation and Censorship of my Free Speech. The IWW, IWOC, as well as Anarchists and Socialists everywhere can help me combat these strategies by doing a few things:

1.) Stay in touch with me and Organize in-persyn Prison visits with me when the Federal Prison is not on Lockdown.

2.) For those who loathe these modern day Koncentration Kamps and who prefer not to Visit it would help me a lot if you use your Cyber-Skills to help Amplify My voice via Social Media and other Platforms.

3.) Help Me and Mary Ratcliff create a Realistic Financial Sustainability Model for the San Francisco Bay View National Black News Paper!!! Note: Y’all know that prisoners do not have access to the Internet and the Bay View continues to be the Platform many Incarcerated Workers and Freedom Fighters use to Communicate with each other and our Free World Comrades!! THESE ARE FACTS

Fellow workers as we enter the Year of 2020 the Struggle Which Seeks to END PRISON SLAVERY continues!!!!
As we all prepare for another round of Historic National Prison Work Stoppages we must concentrate our energy on conveying to Free World Folks and members of the Media why we are engaging in these acts of PEACEFUL Direct Action and International Solidarity. We must Highlight the ongoing Humyn Rights and Civil Rights Violations and Abuses carried out by Prison Officials against Prisoners across the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Russia, Central and South Amerika.
We must not lose track of the subject of Forced Prison Labor and the Fact that in 2020 the U.S. Constitution still promotes, condones, and sanctions the institutions of Slavery and Involuntary Servitude!!! AMEND THE 13TH AMENDMENT NOW!!!!!
In 2019 we saw the U.S. Department of INJUSTICE release a scathing report which detailed over the top violence, abuse, and corruption inside prisons operated by the Alabama Department of Corrections. The question is this: What has William Barr and the D.O.J. done in order to address or even change the conditions inside Alabama Prisons??? NOT A DAMN THANG!!
Our comrade and ally Kinetik Justice of the Free Alabama Movement continues to struggle for his Humyn rights and the Rights of All Alabama Prisoners. WE CAN NOT LEAVE KINETIK JUSTICE IN THE LURCH!! We must come up with creative and innovative ways to help him and others in our Movement!!

My Fellow Federal Prisoners Jeremy Hammond, Eric King, and Chelsea Manning are being subjected to Orwellian Schemes by the U.S. Government meant to beat them into submission!!! Comrades we must not and can-not remain silent or idle any longer!!! It is time for Brain-Storming and Planning. We keep falling back on the defensive. The Pigs continue to harm us. HACKERS UNITE!! The sleepers must awake now!!! Where is ANONYMOUS OR ANY CLANDESTINE CYBER WARRIOR WHEN WE NEED THEM??? Yes!! I said it!!! We must have these difficult conversations comrades. Private and Secret conversations!!!

Before I go let me say that I am very angry and disappointed with this So Called ‘Maoist formation’ which organized to attack Fellow Workers while they attended a Movie in Kansas City!!! Since when did true Servants of the People of the Shining Path take to brutally beating disabled humyn beings who are supposed to be your damn allies!!!!??

I’d like someone to inform these comrades with the Red Brigade Shining Path or whoever they are that I said this:

DON’T ATTACK US ANYMORE. There are White Nationalists here in Amerikkka who continue to harm Jewish People, LGBTQ PEOPLE, WIMMIN, AND PEOPLE OF COLOR!! You mean to tell me that y’all have to attack us? DON’T DO IT!! Please let these Maoist comrades know I said this.

Remember: An injury to one is an injury to all!!

Dare to Struggle, Dare to win, All power to the people!!!

Governments and Violence

By Anarchist Prisoner Sean Swain    

Governments claim to be opposed to violence. They teach us in school that violence is bad. They pass laws to criminalize violence. They lock up people for acts of violence. But governments don’t really oppose violence at all.     Governments spend millions of dollars on bombers and tanks and aircraft carriers– all weapons of violence. Governments recruit and train soldiers to form armies and employ violence. In the United States, police carry guns and routinely shoot people–often, unarmed people–every single day. This is violence.    

Every new development from communications to “stealth” technology, from atomic power to drones, is applied first by governments to the science of inflicting violence before being used for anything else.    

Governments do not oppose violence. Governments seek to monopolize violence. Everything that government does, it relies upon a gun or a billy club, a can of pepper spray or an attack helicopter. Its every demand carries an implied threat, “or else.” Pay your taxes “or else.” Obey the laws “or else.” Keep working and shopping and dying “or else.”    

The relationship between an individual subject and the government is defined by violence. Violence is the language of governing, of controlling, of subjugating and exploiting.    

But we do not have to permit governments to maintain a monopoly on violence. We don’t have to keep doing the bleeding and the dying while they continue to do the killing.    

Our problem is not violence. Our problem is, we are killing the wrong people. When we start killing the right people, the attack helicopters and the bombers will change hands. Violence will cease to be the language of government and will become instead the language of liberation.

Give strength to each other

By Exile

My mission is to keep you at peace. We are trapped as slaves, sentenced to die in captivity. So we must challenge ourselves you see. Don’t let the gifts, the power you have, burn out as this prison saps our strength. My action are to create a legacy where we come together as king. Cherish my words, see the truth, read between the lines they paint for you and me. To the masses they use propaganda to control society and people souls are crush because of the plot they have used to destroy our race in dreams.

My brothers it’s time for us to step up as man. Lend help to others, be a true friend. We need leader someone to guide the youth. Be better father, husband, give strength to each other. We must come together and network together to build our community, homes, lives and etc. We are the leader of the community, of our family. We have to guide the kids who have no father, seem to have no future. I hope that every man, stands for something. Life is so much more than living for self.

Fences

People who run prisons know they intend to do us harm. The proof? They put fences around these places before we ever get here. The reason they put the fences up is, they know they intend to harm us, and they know that any reasonable person would try to run away. They aren’t “helping” us or making us “better” people. They’re hurting us. They’re making us less likely to succeed. And they know it. So that means people who run prisons know they are making future crime more likely, not less. They know they are creating future crime, future victims, future imprisonment, future losses for society all the way around. If they were helping us, if they believed they were helping us, they wouldn’t put the fences up. They wouldn’t need fences. If they offered us wisdom and skills and empowerment, we’d all stay violently. There would be no need for a fence. You don’t put fences around a pizza party. You put fences around a torture factory.
They know how to help us. They could help us and empower us if they wanted to. People go into basic training in the military and leave there after 8 weeks, instilled with a whole new way of living, a whole new sense of themselves, a whole new vision and set of skills. Our sentences are longer than eight weeks. We leave prison without all that wonderful stuff that only takes eight weeks. They would help us if they really wanted to apply the science of that they know. They don’t want to. They want things the way they are. They profit off of human suffering. If they are protecting the public from us, who protects the public from them? Maybe the responsibility falls to us to take them down. There’s that fence. We’re locked in here with them. We might as well do something to change the world. We outnumber them. ~Anarchist Prisoner Sean Swain 

The Brain Washed

Written By: Jacorie Hinton
AKA Trigga 1000

We our own kind are our destruction in life! Worrying who got what and did what, and wanting to be the biggest and the baddest and freshest! But we were branded in the beginning as the most hated because of our mind and strength and we were tricked into a lifestyle we are cursed with til death that came with ignorance! The term we all hear today on April 1st is April fool! But do you know the history in the saying? The year 1555 on April 1st, we the black race were tricked into slavery and thats when the term April Fool was born! And we are so quick to call the white man a white cracker in disrespect when it’s a compliment. The term white cracker came from the whip crackin on the slaves back! And we want equal rights when the Declaration of Independence has not been changed, we are still considered half a person to be in office but Donald Trump is our president. Please wake up people, let’s fight the right fight!!!  

Fascism and the War for Life in this Land of Death

Train to think by the concepts of misinforming guidance. The common sense in this land makes no sense because justice rectifies illegal actions of retribution. War on poverty allows exploitation of the labor class. War on Drugs is so broad any drug territory inhabitant can be “neutralize” by any means in attempt “tranquil” this hazardous social disease. War on terrorism is war on all potential internal and external. Internal threats are Muslims, Crips, GD’s, MS-13, criminal charges persons and any other people or group in conflict with the interest of the establish order.

This subjugation will last as long as the masses continue to disbelieve the truth. The obvious is being overlooked and the hidden is not being sought. In this time of day murder is a ticket of respect. At night the horror of walkers take the streets and terrorize their common kind. Babies are exchange for goods and education is secondary to the lesson of discipline. Crack, cocaine, and ecstasy has been made legal under prescription distributed by the pharmaceuticals department. New gun restrictions debilitate the constituted and god given right of self-preservation. To be free will cost some of your civil liberties. Or does it? If this franchise of corporate law is only affective consensually, then what will happen when consent is no longer given? When the sleep is awaken and the blind can see. When the deaf can hear and the lame of doubt is move by faith.

The matter of survival is constantly being infected with substances that enervates its neutrons. Your physical growth is stunt by “vaccines” of sterilization. Mentally your mind is buried in distress, agony and confusion. Enslaved by ignorance and raged by the madness it visualizes. Emotionally you’re on a steady imbalance frequently the process of decay takes a toll. Effecting the psychological state – now psychosis are diagnosis. Population control is in affect and is calculated every 10 years. Our country of opportunity; and freedom. Our nation of death as the right way… Damn this is the Amerikkkan Dream. In order for them to live we must die. The many for the few our means are justified by their ends…to be continued. 

A Unified Gesture

Hello, May peace and blessings be with us all.     

A unified gesture isn’t just a normal gesture it’s a scrutinized objective that symbolizes a change for humanity once viewed from a stabled mind or by those of common interests.     

These common interests are to grow and develop, unify, improve poverty, and to make equal. Growth and development are a matter we find so predictable only because who can obtain growth for the right cause while dealing with misguidance and many other unethical casualties. If we do away with prevarication the truth will no longer be subtle. Unity among families as well as to our communities gives leadership to the up coming generation. Let’s not bring our kids into neighborhoods we regret growing in. The chance to change it lies within the speech of encouragement, motivation to change a mind set, and the teaching of self-dependency. Togetherness is the truth awaiting its revelation once unified we will expand hope. Improving the state of poverty, we deal with penury not only because of prejudice matters, but for the lack of building within our communities so that job opportunities will be available. We can improve the state of poverty by giving those whom get neglected the encouragement to strive for a better living, without criminal acts.     

To make equal, we all seek equality in our own way. Each ethnic group is publicized for mostly their wrongs which leaves their rights never thought of. This causes each ethnic group to denounce the others for their wrongs that may have been afflicted in the past. Now they stigmatize one another which collaborate well with disunity, remember “Divided we fall, united we stand”.

Still Standing on My Toes

By: Jamal Lundy
AKA Don Mall

I done lost every thing and still I stand 
I done lost every one yet still I stand
I done lost hope before but still I stand
I done been through it all and I’m still standing.
The judge sentenced me to life without
But still I stand and I fight cause I know one day I will stand on my 10 toes
back on the west side zone 1 Bankhead where my roots are for a better reason.
To help others not go down my footsteps cause the streets don’t love no one and violence ain’t the way of life 
It only takes life.
Black lives.
And why we help knock our beautiful race off with black on black crimes.
90% of guys lock up for doing some to there own race!
Today I stand on my 10 to be a leader and help make a change for black lives. 

Gang Members: Lead the Youth

Join hands with me and others to lead these younger brothers away from prison.

Change Today

The government is pimpin’ the  Blaqman, Illuminati runs the world, so fuk pimpin’ my pen. I’d rather help my community, Lil’ Chico looks up to me. Disappointed with myself of how I abandoned the streets… Blinded by greed returned me back to slavery; it’s more than a G-thang. It’s bigger than you & me. We need our cribs in our names; boss up our economical game, I hated to slang crack cocaine. I witnessed Momdukes lose everythang; plus I never gang-banged… What if I made 1 person smile today? I’ll set the trend here; because I’m told FAITH is contagious. It takes more muscles to frown, so I’ll smile away. I can’t predict tomorrow but I can save today. Give us back our country; not Amerika but the one you stole from me. Wanna kno’ what I hate more than cops? A thief…   

I’ve studied the history and FREEDOM is owed to me. I just keep it BLAQ like we’s supposed to be… Shot outs to Lupe, Wale  and Nasir Jones. Larry Hoover, Tookie Williams and James Brown. B.O.B., Big K.R.I.T. and Killer Mike. Kaepernick, Stacey Abrams, Condoleezza Rice. King Coe; and I’m prepping Amerika for her future. Our brothers are on the way and they gone be remembered like Malcolm and Luther…   

Why expose brains when I can expose truths! The proof is right between the pages of this book, young dude. I can’t believe I said no to school, rebelled and broke the rules. Smoked weed, cut class or even fought in school. But it’s what I was taught to do…     

Please become someone, become MORE than the average dude. Don’t get blinded by REALITY T.V. like most people do, and DYING is not worth putting our mom’s thru. And killing ain’t really worth living our lives like fools… By O.G. King Coe
