Two banners were dropped in downtown Tucson on September 9th, reading “Solidarity with Those Who Fight Back” and “Standing Rock to Milwaukee to Every Prison.” We hoped to draw together ongoing, parallel, and massive struggles against colonialism and white supremacy on the eve of Tucson’s march in solidarity with the national prison strike.
We also hope to extend, or continue extending, our absolute solidarity and aspiration for complicity with local indigenous struggles, including the fights to save Oak Flat and to utterly destroy Loop 202.
Hopefully, the fires of Milwaukee and the camps at Standing Rock will spread, from all our blocks to the cell blocks, across this occupied continent.
We want to emphasize the importance that we defend ourselves and each other. That we continue, beyond this month, to have the backs of those inside prison walls putting it on the line. That we have the strength to put it on the line ourselves and actively defend one another in the streets and on the plains.
