June 11th is an international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and all long-term anarchist prisoners. A spark in the eternal night of state repression. A day set aside for honoring those who have been stolen from us. On this day, we share in songs, events, and actions to celebrate our captured comrades and loved ones. In years past, June 11th celebrations have been international and wide-ranging – from potlucks with friends to various inspiring attacks; fundraising benefits and prisoner letter writing nights to all of the untold and unknown ways we keep the flame alive.

Cutting Class: Excerpt from “Prisons Are Plantations”

This is an excerpt from a larger piece, a compilation of interviews with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated folks in Texas, Illinois, and Florida. The full document demonstrates how prisons are extensions of the plantation and recreate the pre-1865 slave codes through unpaid labor, policing, isolation, abuse, and more. This particular excerpt highlights the way schooling operates in the context of the penal system as a tool of control, and how access to education is limited in order to control prisoners. In publishing this, we hope to draw connections between how the University and the Prison operate as two sides of the same coin determining who may access knowledge. We further hope this piece will draw students to adopt a broader perspective in their struggles, to draw connections with prisoner & abolitionist struggles. We won’t add much more analysis, since we think the writing speaks for itself.
