    “Walk away or fight” a poem by Eric King

      People say to be strong but never say or mention where to absorb strength from is it strength that risk of the hole over a lack of vegetables or reckless rebellion maybe its principle facing our fears & embracing our weaknesses maybe our greatest triumph or fuckup stand yer ground, feel it quake arms so brittle, legs so weak struggle to recall the point of this still willing to go for whatever the point is forgotten what home smelt like vividly recall what choking on fumes felt like nothing is ever black and white options are always more than just walk away or fight

    Eric’s Plea Signing Date 3/3/2016

      After almost a year and a half of pre-trial detention in shitty conditions, court battles and other legal woes,   and facing threats of forty years in prison, Eric King has finally decided to accept a non-cooperating plea agreement to ten years in federal prison. If you live nearby, please consider attending Eric’s hearing in Kansas City, MO next Thursday, March 3rd at 1:30p.m. The media and cops are likely to be well-represented, and it would be a meaningful moment to show Eric that he is not alone.

    Was able to visit Eric this last week! He is still working  through  some medical things but is feeling  strong and in good spirits! This month marks 6 months being held in solitary confinement. He had a reclassification hearing to determine if he could  leave the hole but it was decided that he will remain on “life” status which means he will remain there for the duration of his time at CCA Leavenworth.  The support  he receives from comrades has been irreplaceable in keeping  him strong! Eric wants to express his gratitude for all the amazing letters and books that folks have sent him. In solidarity  ( A )
