Below I am reposting an article by Gregory Koger originally published at the newly redesigned revcom.us website for Revolution Newspaper. Gregory is a former prisoner who I had the great privilege of getting to know through the movement for Revolution. Currently, the state is moving to lock him up once again -- on completely illegitimate and unjust grounds. As he explains below, he is being made an example by a system that is deeply afraid of those who are locked on the bottom of society -- and those locked literally in the bowels and dungeons of this criminal system -- connecting up with the real revolution, connecting with the leadership of Bob Avakian, and becoming emancipators of humanity. Take the time to read his statement and the excerpts of letters from other prisoners who have been inspired by him and are standing with him. Then, add your name to the statement demanding "Not One More Day" in jail for him and share this with everyone you know.
What This System Does to the People of the World Is Criminal—Dedicating Your Life to Emancipating Humanity Is Not
A statement by Gregory Koger
November 18, 2012 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
Three years ago I was arrested for attempting to document a
political statement opposing censorship by Sunsara Taylor at the
"Ethical" Humanist Society of Chicago (EHSC). What began as a brief but
principled statement opposing the censorship of her long-scheduled
talk and an invitation for those who wanted to hear her talk to join us
at the home of a now-former member of the EHSC was rapidly transformed
by powers in the ruling class into a three-year-long political and
legal battle against a political prosecution and 300-day jail sentence
for non-violent misdemeanors.
