Down here we put the word out about Attica and what this stand was for and all. These f****** tipped the devils off, me and my team knew because as the day closed in, the tension was felt, the guards were placing the cuffs on us tight when being escorted out the cell to the shower, yard, medical, etc. So by us seeing that, I threw piss and chemicals in the Sgt face on 9/8/2016 AM. Popp’d it off early, the Sgt tried to spray, we shield the door, me and my cell mate. We waited on use of force to go on strip cell, but Sgt said he was going to refuse our food. Now why he want to do that? Very stupid! My Brothers asked the officer that was working our range when he was passing out trays was he going to feed me and my cell mate, and he replied that it was out of his hands because Sgt said not to feed us. Now, that was so wrong to say, and he represent a urban gang so he says SPLATT – they throwed body fluids on him! He called Sgt and they brough the CERT team and sprayed mace on them and placed one on strip cell. So the CERT being here, we on the door like “Remember Attica, bitch”, “Black lives matters”, “Justice will be served”, and we kept that up until they came back to my cell. We then gave them our demand sheets with “non-negotiable” on it, and told them we better eat, or else.
So the Sgt came with pack outs in bags, saying “go to the back of the cell” for he could throw the food in to us like a dogg. I ask my cell mate was he hungry and he replied that he was full of rage, so we manipulated Sgt to leave and come back. When he came back, we had the old tray we kept to block the flap with now jammed in the tray flap slot, and when Sgt asked us to step to the back, I was 1/2 way back. I ran up and footed that tray, almost busting my ass (cause the entire building was and did flood). But now we have the flap open and Sgt fighting to not let us get it all the way down, so while I pushed against his strength my cell mate hit him with a cup of shit right in the face. Sgt immediately started vomiting, but I gave him the flap to close now. This was around 6pm it started around 12pm. The next shift came in, a brother who do what he can for us, he went and brought us our pack outs (we still ate!).
On 9/9/2016 a few peoples went on hungry strike. Kevine them did too in J-building, so I heard. But that brother who got sprayed for our trays cell mate throwed shit and piss on the officer, we was then being served our food by CERT teams and a few officers. They had the cameras for incidents and use of force rolling. They had paint ball peppers, tazers and 7% mace all pointed at me and my cell mate’s flap as they fed and ran ice call. So with us living to die and not dying to live, we threw piss, chemicals and the food on them (element of surprise). So when they came out of that seconds of shock, our shield and curtains was up ASAP, they realized we were war ready, slammed the flap and called us names as we represented Attica and sent the 2nd copy of the 3 demands sheets. They refused to use force, we wanted to fight! By the way, we still ate!
9/10/2016 & 9/11/2016 The strikers rolled out and we kept doing shit like flooding, and destroying the cell. Me and 3 other brothers didn’t stop & really haven’t stopped yet. We have throwed shit on an inmate that was speaking against the movement, he started crying like a bitch. They have me labeled as the leader over here, so I am in a one man cell in K2 side. Why they do that, I have 2 brothers over here, one is a nasty dude (he loves slanging shit :p) He’s throwed it on the head counselor, the LT, 4 officers and a betrayal. I’ve throwed more piss in another Sgt face, and truthfully the mace and physical force doesn’t bother me. The warden have been coming to our cell asking us what we want, my question is: you here to play, pray or pay?
Attica was really another day for me. These pigs try and do whatever me and my brothers ask or say, they have even told us that we showed them that it’s unity, and they respect us. But they still be treating those who refuse to stand up like some nothing ass slaves. This prison camp compound didn’t do shit, only K & J building stood in the paint and it wasn’t a large #.
The food is much better, we get our proper yard time, more mental health assistance, less shakedowns and they undivided attention. We won’t stop because when one struggle ends a new one begins. I don’t know about anyone else at the other camps, but it y’all are standing for us, we fell it’s our time to go all-out, because the body is in harmony within and out. We can’t force anyone to stand and fight. I’m not about to use intellectual vocabularies, all my brothers are basic, we are striving to learn, but we cannot have dictionaries or any books other than your bible, etc (yet). Change is coming. FIGHT
Us vs Them Power II the Peoples
