Comrades, we hereby inform you all that as of 00:00 hours from today, May 18, 2015 that we the subversives who inhabit the high security prison have joined Juan Flores, Guillermo Duran and Nataly Casanova in their hunger strike struggle.

We do so with a deep sense of anti-prison solidarity and we make the same demands as our comrades who have already completed 34 days of hunger strike. These demands are:

- The immediate release of Enrique Alfonso Guzmán Amadeo considering the ridiculous accusations and the delusional evidence that has been presented by the prosecutors.

Dear comrades (and all my enemies):
I am a 57 year old African/native/Mexican grandfather and revolutionary. Just like my great grandfather Luis who fought with Ponce Villa during the Mexican Revolution. (In fact, I may be him reincarnated, who knows.) But it doesn’t matter who I am. I considered myself an ex-U.S. Navy vet but now I’ve been labeled an anarchist arsonist. What is in a lame ass name? I’ve been called worse. I am currently residing here at California State Prison at Solano in the cowshit smelling town of Vacaville, California for 10 years, 8 months for arson when I set fire to the city attorney office in Santa Cruz, California basically for their over-zealous prosecution and repression of the homeless and the poor. But it is much more than just that. I’ve been rebelling the fucking system all my adult life. I am a Rebel and a pirate. The latter I am now not so proud about but like a leopard I cannot change the fact and the reality. The system made me into the lean, mean revolutionary machine that I am still today. It is my fate and/or destiny to foment revolution by any and every means necessary.

Last night I saw the moon and a star. It was the first time in a long-time. It made me think of all my friends, old and new,and wonder what they were doing under its glow. I feel so lucky to be part of a wide network of people. Anything seems possible when you know you have support. But whilst these thoughts make prison bearable, I will never forget the violence of the system.

Wildfire: An Anarchist Prison Newsletter

From Wildfire:

[Download Issue #1] (Prints 8.5×11)

We’re excited to announce the first issue of Wildfire, a new quarterly newsletter of anarchist prison struggle.

We have two goals with this project: to spread the words and actions of anarchist prisoners in the United States and to offer news and updates on anti-authoritarian struggle for comrades in prison who might not otherwise have access to this information.

Wildfire flows with our continued frustration with the state of anarchist prison solidarity in the United States: the lack of prisoners’ voices in our publications, the half-hearted solidarity shown toward captured fighters, the dead-end of “political prisoner” designation. It also flows from our long-term relationships with imprisoned comrades, the mutual affinity found in struggling together. Rather than complain and critique, we prefer to strike out in another direction, embodying our own vision of solidarity. We hope this publication can be a contribution to a more diverse, more combative, and stronger anarchist struggle against prison.
