Chrystul Kizer is a black teenage survivor of violence. At only 17-years old, she was charged with multiple felonies for defending herself from an older white man who has been accused of ongoing physical and sexual abuse of not only Chrystul, but multiple other young girls. Chrystul spent her 18th birthday incarcerated in the Kenosha County Jail, where she remains confined. If convicted, Chrystul could face a sentence of life in prison. Chrystul needs the opportunity to be supported in safe, healing spaces in the community – not the prospect of additional trauma, assault, and solitary confinement in a Wisconsin penitentiary.

As a pastor and a consistent activist against police brutality, violence and oppression in her community, Rev. Joy Powell was warned by the Rochester Police department that she was a target because of her speaking out against corruption. On many occasions Rev. Joy had held rallies and spoke out against the police brutality and “police justifications” in Rochester NY. As a result, Rev. Joy was accused and convicted of 1st Degree Burglary and Assault.

An all white jury tried her; the state provided no evidence and no eyewitnesses. Rev. Joy was not allowed to discuss her activism or say that she was a pastor. The person that testified for her was not allowed to tell the court that he knew Rev. Joy through there activist work and through the church. Further more the judge Francis Affronti promised he was going to give her a harsh sentence because he did not like her. She was convicted and given 16 years and seven years concurrent.

Rev Joy Powell is more then sure her case was politically motivated based on her activism for equality and justice for all.

Nina Droz-Franco
#50427-069
FCI Tallahassee
Federal Correctional Institution
501 Capital Circle, NE
Tallahassee, FL 32301  RELEASED!!!!

Nina Alejandra Droz Franco was arrested by the Puerto Rico Police as she sat on the street to block a line of riot cops during the disturbances that followed the mass march that took place on May 1st, 2017. Later that day, ATF took over the investigation. On May 2, she was transferred to federal custody and charged with damaging or attempting to damage by means of fire a building engaged in activity affecting interstate commerce, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 844(i). Specifically, she was accused of trying to set fire to the Banco Popular building in the “Golden Mile” area, which on May Day was the target of the rage of hundreds of protesters who smashed its glass windows and wrote on its walls.

Banco Popular and its owners, the Carrión family, have been denounced for their undue influence on local politics as well as their role in the Puerto Rican fiscal crisis. Today, one of the Carrión heirs, Jose Carrión III, is a member of La Junta, the unelected fiscal control board imposed on Puerto Rico by PROMESA.

After her arrest, the U.S. District Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez, tried to portray Droz as a terrorist and even used the name of the role she played as an extra in the movie Runner Runner, “the girl who breathes fire”, to sway the people against her. Later, Judge Delgado issued a gag order saying that Droz’s attorney had tried to politicize the decision to process his client, a conduct which threatened to interfere with the possibility of a fair trial. Droz was denied bail mostly because of the prosecutor’s argument that she is a repeat offender (due to a decade old criminal case in another jurisdiction), that she recently used violence in an incident with a man (who was harassing her) and that her parents cannot control her. As proof, the prosecution used a video found on her phone of her mother scolding her as well as a telephone conversation between Droz and her mother after she was in jail.

During her bail hearings, Droz’s attorney denounced that she was not being provided with the medication she was prescribed for her chronic pain and anxiety, or with the appropriate bedding for herniated discs. Judge Delgado dismissed these claims saying that Droz was evaluated when she was jailed and that the determination to eliminate some medication was probably due to the fact that she was being over medicated.

Although Droz initially pled not guilty, on July 12 she changed her plea after reaching an agreement with the prosecution which proposed a sentence of three years and one month in jail, while the defense suggested two years. 

Nina was sentenced on Tuesday, June 12th to 37 months in jail and 3 years of probation.  She might be move3d to a prison in the U.S. in the near future.

Sean Swain is a hostage held by a lawless rogue-state calling itself “The State of Ohio.”1    He has been held without legal conviction or sentence since 1991 for the self-defense killing of a court official’s relative who broke into Sean’s home and threatened his life. In fall of 2012, prisoners calling themselves the Army of the 12 Monkeys (A12M) got rowdy at Mansfield Correctional, and the prison authorities assumed “that anarchist” Sean Swain must have been behind it and threw him in supermax isolation. Sean denies any involvement or affiliation with the A12M and is in the process of suing the ODRC for targetting him based exclusively on his ideology and political speech.

Sean is the only son of a retired auto worker and stay-home mom. He has renounced his high school diploma, his college degree, and his honorable discharge from the U.S. military. Before being taken hostage, Sean worked as a newspaper columnist and as a union organizer.

Sean is mounting his most recent run for Governor of Ohio in 2018. If elected, he promises to decommission the Ohio National Guard, empty Ohio’s prisons and turn them into squats, recognize Native American land rights as set forth by the Treaty of Greenville, arm the tribes with national guard weaponry, to include tanks and attack helicopters, refuse to sign any budget causing the government to shut down, and sign an Executive Order making it legal to assassinate him if he remains in office longer than 90 days.

Though innocent of any crime, and though he is held without legal conviction or sentence, Sean will only be liberated when the illegitimate power of the lawless rogue state holding him hostage is abolished once and for all.

Birthday: April 24
Mumia is an award winning journalist and was one of the
founders of the Black Panther Party chapter in Philadelphia, PA.
He has struggled for justice and human rights for people of color since he was at least 14 years old ~ the age when he joined the Party. In December of 1982, Mumia, who moonlighted by driving a taxi, happened upon police who were beating his brother.during the melee, a police officer was shot and killed. Despite the fact that many people saw someone else shoot and then runaway from the scene, Mumia, in what could only
be called a kangaroo court, was convicted and sentenced to death. During the summer of 1995, a death warrant was signed by Governor Tom Ridge, which sparked one of the most effective organizing efforts in defense of a political prisoner ever. Since that time, Mumia has had his death sentence overturned, but still has a life sentence with no opportunity for parole. More information: freemumia.com

*Address envelope to Joseph Bowen.
Birthday: January 15
Joseph “Joe-Joe” Bowen is one of the many all-but-forgotten frontline
soldiers in the liberation struggle. A native of Philadelphia, Joe-Joe was
a young member of the “30th and Norris” street gang before his incarceration politicized him. Released in 1971, his outside activism was cut short a week following his release when Joe-Joe was confronted by an officer of the notoriously brutal Philadelphia police
department. The police officer was killed in the confrontation, and Bowen fled. After his capture and incarceration, Bowen became a Black Liberation Army combatant,defiant to authorities at every turn. In 1973, Joe-Joe and Philadelphia Five prisoner Fred “Muhammad” Burton assassinated Holmesberg prison’s warden and deputy warden
as well as wounded the guard commander in retaliation for intense repression against Muslim prisoners in the facility.
In 1981, Bowen led a six-day standoff with authorities when he and six other captives took 39 hostages at Graterford Prison as a freedom attempt and protest of the prison conditions. Much of his time in prison has been spent in and out of control units, solitary confinement, and other means of isolating Joe-Joe from the general prison population.
These include three trips to Marion Penitentiary, where he met Sundiata Acoli and other BLA members. He is legendary to many prisoners as a revolutionary. “I used to teach the brothers how to turn their rage into energy and understand their situations,” Bowen told the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1981. “I don’t threaten anybody. I don’t talk to pigs. I
don’t drink anything I can’t see through and I don’t eat anything off a tray. When the time comes, I’ll be ready.”

Veronza was a member of the Black Panther Party, convicted in the murder
of a U.S. Park Ranger on the word of two government informants, both of
whom received reduced sentences for other crimes by Federal prosecutors.
There were no eye-witnesses and no evidence independent of the
informants to link him to the crime. At trial, Veronza offered alibi testimony, not credited by the jury. Nor was testimony of two relatives of the informants who insisted that they were lying. The informants had all charges against them in this case dropped and one was
given $10,000 by the government according to the prosecutor’s post-sentencing report.
Veronza has consistently proclaimed his innocence of the crime he never committed, even at the expense of having his appeals for parole denied for which an admission of guilt and contrition is virtually required. More information: veronza.org

He joined the US Military in 1963, and the following year was stationed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba before being transferred off to spend the following year in the Vietnam War. Some time shortly after 1965, he was sentenced by a Massachusetts state court to five years in prison for armed robbery and assault.
It was during these years that he became politicized, through his interactions with other prisoners. After his release in 1971, he married Carol and together they had three children–Jeremy, Tamara, and Jonathan. Together with his arrest for the bombings, Manning was also convicted for his role in killing a New Jersey during a traffic stop in 1981 in which the cop first unloaded his .357 revoler in an attempt to kill the car’s
occupants. The killings launched the largest manhunt in NJ police history and ended with the arrests of Ray Levasseur, Patricia Gross, Richard Williams, Jaan Laamnan, and Barbara Curzi on November 4th, 1984, and Manning and his wife Carol on April 24, 1985. All were associated with the United Freedom Front. Tom was sentenced on
February 19, 1987 to 58 years in federal prison.

Long Live Tom Manning!

STK Statement, by Lucas Alan Dietsche, Regional Coordinator/ Letters to Prisoners

Tom Manning died July 31, 2019 from a heart attack. Manning really died from not getting treatment while in jail. He was a soldier in the American war against U.S. aggression. He was briefly incarcerated for robbery and became class-conscious during that time. Manning was a member of the Sam Melville/Johnathan Jackson unit as well as the United Freedom Front in the 70’s and 80’’s. He was radicalized and helped armed attacks against USA-allied South African apartheid and imperialism. He was sentenced to 80 years for the self-defense against a state trooper.

Manning was a friend, Prisoner of Class War, and correspondent to Letters to Prisoners in Superior for the last three years. He wrote to students and activists alike asking in regards to the political situation and one’s conscious. We remember our fallen comrades that we write and remember in solidarity behind the walls. Manning was a great artist, poet, and writer of revolutionary discontent. His words live on:

“Revolution is never begun anew, 
only continued where others left off.”
