Statement from Ferguson political prisoner Josh Williams.
This is my speech to all my people in the fight, so sit back and listen: I say to the people in the fight all around the world, fighting against slavery, fighting against racism, fighting against the system. I say to you, don’t get tired, keep fighting be strong, because one thing about us: we are stronger then racism. We are stronger than the police who’s trying to kill us off, but one thing about that is when the police kill a black man or woman or a white man or woman, another one is born, stronger than the last one.
People of the nation, I speak to you in peace, I speak to you in love. People of the world, I speak to you and I say to you: I’m here with you, fighting alongside of you, because there are many fights you can be fighting for. Cancer, suicide prevention, bullying, voter oppression, whatever it is, I say to you: stay strong, don’t give up, I know you tired, I am too. But the moment we give up America is the moment we give up our lives because we gave up the fight. But I say to the police of every department there is, and say there is a Storm brewing. The longer y’all kill people in get away with it, the hotter the pot gonna get.
Now police, if y’all trying to talk peace, it’s too late. I speak for the families that can’t see their child anymore because your trigger happy finger took them off the earth. I speak for Michael Brown’s mom when she was crying her fucking soul out right next to me in Canfield Apartment while she was forced to see her fucking son dead on that ground not for one minute or ten minutes but four fucking hours. This is the type of shit I’m talking about, people of the world, this is the shit I’m fighting for: Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Danye Jones, Darren Seal, and so much more. And to all of you who fight with me, I say: let’s go all the way, let’s overthrow this corrupt system and police our own self.
Now, if you reading this at this moment no matter where you at this is our creed say it out loud and declare with me, you ready? Here we go: IT IS OUR DUTY TO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM IT IS OUR DUTY TO WIN WE MUST LOVE AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER WE HAVE NOTING TO LOSE BUT OUR CHAINS.
If you read that and meant it you ready. I will tell you guys there is no finish line for me, I will fight for everybody till there is no blood left in my body and till I breath my last breath I will be on the front lines fight against the police. Who’s with me?
Love you guys.
