EK Statement on Brandon Baxter of the Cleveland 4

“I don’t normally write men political prisoners because I have had bad experiences… but I hear you are safe” I cannot tell you how many letters I get that open this way. Stories of unwanted sexual conversation, requests for photos and attempts to start relationships. It is not difficult to not violate women. I do it every day when responding to letters. A question for men in our community….Why are we being such creeps? I…

Medical Horrors at FCI Florence

*****We (EK support crew) would like to say this situation is representative of a bigger problem within the BOP. There was recent information that has emerged that shows that the way the BOP is handling the hiring freeze is to have nurses double as cops. To quote Nurse Hendricks “I am a guard first and a nurse second” and THAT is the problem. In the medical field folks are asked to do no harm. Meanwhile…

What it looks like to be antifascist in prison

  Below is a statement written by Eric in October: What does it look like to be antifascist in federal prison in 2017? It may not be what you think. If you picture coming into the feds with your fist swinging, taking on every racist, swastika wearing trash you see, that is not a reality. That line of thinking will get us nowhere. Racism at the federal level is very real and played out in…

  Not everyone makes it Not everyone sees a date on the calender as the second coming, as the first day of their life Some never get that ressurection We all do our part, and some of us get tied up Maybe protested, bured something, broke something, freed something We acted according to our conscious and got hit and that fucking sucks, bad.

In Solidarity with Anti-fascists from Eric King and the EK Support Crew.

On behalf of Eric King and the EK Support Crew, we’d like to express our deepest and unwavering solidarity with folks who were in Charlottesville last weekend.   We were all horrified to hear of the murder of Heather Heyer and the injuring and hospitalization of other antifa and BLM folks who were protesting the neo-nazi, “alt-right” scum.  May Heather rest in power and let us never forget anyone who has died fighting fascism. In the…
