Sean is not in the hole and he has not been physically attacked at this time.

A letter from Miguel Balderos

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.

Letter from Prisoner Emma Sheppard, March 2015 – Prisons do not work for anyone – except those who profit from them.

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.
