To Marilyn Buck

October 26, 2010


When I was asked by a Comrade recently who was it that I wanted to meet in the future, when I got out of prison, I listed Comrades Assata Shakur, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Kevin Rashid Johnson, Sundiata Acoli and Marilyn Buck.

Marilyn Buck, oh Marilyn! I heard you the other day on KPFA, all the way in New Jersey, as you left prison. You said that we must continue our struggle to be free from capitalist imperialism, and that all oppressed people around the world deserve our support. I was elated to hear you after 25 years in the belly of the beast sounding strong and determined.

I just cannot get over the fact that they somehow killed you by denying you medical attention early on. Well, my Comrade, you are gone now, but how fitting to now be added to the list of freedom fighters that us young revolutionaries will honor every BLACK AUGUST. What a fitting epitaph!

I must end this now before my tears stain the whole paper. Love you Ms. Guerrilla. All Power to the People!
