Doug Wright Begins Hunger Strike

<table><tr><td>From <a href="http://www.cleveland5justice.org/blog/doug-begins-hunger-strike">http://...

On July 11th the support group received a message from Doug stating that he began a hunger strike on Saturday (7.7.12). The transcribed message is below.

SHARE THIS LETTER WITH ALL!!
The Fascist Pigs here at Trumbull County Jail have thrown me in solitary confinement for some completely bullshit "charges", including "having 2 or more books". I never heard that rule, and I've asked for an inmate handbook on several occasions. Also, "hoarding Personal Hygiene". I didn't know you could have too much soap, too much being more than one bar. WTF??! I have sent a letter telling my lawyer of this and I wantpeople to call him a lot till this injustice is righted! I've also let him know that I'm going to refuse my food until this is made right! When I refuse food they will take away phone calls and ability to write letters, someone thats been in here a while told me this before. So, this might be my letter for a while, until this is fixed.</td><td><img title="Please unconditionally support a person who we know nothing about and is getting railroaded by the State unlike thousands of others..." src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2012/dougwright_200.jpg"></td></...

Too much soap is just that sick sort of humour authoritarians enjoy using on their victims! The shower parody, roped soap, NOT DROPPING IT, lies all lies!! Don't worry Doug <3 U.

Worker, why don't you think he's an anarchist? I'm pretty sure he identifies as one.

ignore the roll-overs. they are not editorials. they are only for the yucks.

not always. and sometimes they get changed.
but regardless, the cranky are determined to be cranky, and have endless energy for it.
if only we could find a more interesting use for their vigor and vim...

They get changed? Why would such perfect indications of contempt and superiority need to be changed?

This one was changed. Now the contemptuous and arrogant admin finds that he is *almost* compelled to merely *discuss* about this poor fellow's case. Not support him, nor call for others to support him. You find this an improvement?

The rollover was changed, yet again. It now offers the caricature of "unconditional" support which is just as unacceptable as questioning his ideology ("is he an anarchist"). Dude could spend all day swapping out his rollovers and they'd always end up wrong.

What makes you think worker thinks he is not an anarchist?

The original rollover speculated thus.

Dot, I'm sorry about my and others' vitriol, but sometimes the rollovers really are off-base, and they don't always get changed. It's not just that people are cranky, it's that when you wield a lot of power, any little thoughtless act has disproportionate effects. That makes people understandably quick to crank.

We are not cranky. We HATE the rollovers and the abuse of power involved.

cranky cranky.

remember:
no slaves, no masters. humor is potent. make some of your own.

any one of those bumperstickers will really work on its own, if you think about it enough.

together though...!!!

keep justifying what pisses your comrades off! makes people very sympathetic to your projects. yes, it does, really.

four things wrong with your post:
not my project.
not my comrades.
shallow sarcasm.
and my comrades are best when they're pissed off.

You're thick. If you apologize for the rollovers, which obviously piss people off, then your projects DOT MATRIX independent or not will also be greeted by indifference if not outright hostility. Your comrades are best when they are pissed off? I'm not surprised. Many people suffer from similar psychological problems as they do.

i think you would have been hostile to my projects no matter what.
and i reject your representation of others, being an anarchist and all.

Poor little thing suffers from real serious self esteem issues, "i think you would have been hostile to my projects no matter what." Awwwwwww, didn't mommy and daddy gives you enuff hugs?

troll, you keep digging yourself deeper

Thank you. Digging myself in shallower is for *troll haters* like you.

Dot, you are great.

Hugs & kisses, Ma and Pa.

PNAB!!! NOW!!!

For a capitalist.

How would we know?

Love and rage brave one!!!! <3

IT WOULD HELP IF THE INFORMATION OF HOW TO CALL THE JAIL AND HIS LAWYER AND COMPLAIN TO THEM WERE INCLUDED!!!!
ALSO INCLUDE NUMBERS FOR LOCAL MEDIA TO CALL AND TELL THEM ABOUT HIS HINGER STRIKE AND TELL THEM TO COVER IT.

That is what needs to happen for this dude. Let's teach that jail a lesson about fucking with anarchist prisoners: we can organize, we can call them out in the media, we can clog their phone lines with calls of support, we can make these moron COs realize they can't do shit like this, and it will help all prisoners, as well as Doug.

that'll teach those "jails" a lesson

SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK, especially in Ohio against some despicable representative of the state.

*Letters must be in pre-stamped envelopes from the Post Office. No glitter/sparkles/confetti/stickers/etc. Plain lined or unlined paper is acceptable. Photos are okay. Remember that your letters are being read before reaching the accused.

**Please be sure to include Doug's middle initial, L., when addressing letters to him as there are two Douglas Wrights at Trumbull County Jail in Warren.

In such terrible conditions, I'd fucking do the same. I'd rather starve to death than being treated like this.

Solidarity actions!
