Introduction to Issue 8

November 11, 2006

Hey everyone, here’s your latest 4strugglemag, number 8! As always this issue is loaded with revolutionary information and analysis, a lot of it from political prisoners in the United States.

We begin with a section on imperialism and the worldwide struggle against it. This includes articles on North Korea, Palestine and Lebanon. The second section features information on political prisoners in America and the conditions they face. In the third section we begin a dialog proposed by brother Akili in the last issue, on Hip Hop, Youth and Revolution. This sections includes words from Mumia abu Jamal, Herman Bell and many other insightful revolutionary voices.

Other sections include information about a new art show of Work by Ohio 7 political prisoner Tom Manning, and the launching of a new art and revolutionary politics web site. We also have details and analysis on Lynne Stewart’s prison sentence. You will want to check out the information on a newly released Tribute Book on the life and work of Richard Williams. Also we have details on how people can order the colorful and informative 2007 political prisoner calendar. Finally I hope readers will also check out and consider my legal update and appeal near the end of this issue.

Issue 9, which will begin our fourth year of publication, will be out in February. We invite people to send their thoughts on matters discussed here, particularly further dialog based on Akili’s letter. We will also print the entire findings of the 1992 international tribunal, “Indigenous Peoples and Oppressed Nations in the USA.” Essays, letters, graphics and poems can be sent to our discussion board or mailed to, the 4struggle P.O. Box.

Ideas and discussion are always important, but taking action is what counts the most. We urge everyone to support and participate in anti-war activities in your area. It’s time to end this war in Iraq — Bring all the troops home now – period!

See you in February.
