Reflection 26 years after the fall, by Greg Curry




Last year on the 25th anniversary the State of Ohio silenced me and my comrades whom are on death row from any communication with the outside world. Afraid our message of truth justice and equality for all would be too radical, as a result, our comrades Ben Turk and Joyce Jones was barred from our visit list. Siddique Hasan has been put on extended communications restrictions and Bomani Shakur (aka Keith LaMar) has officially been given a execution date. I’ve finally been transferred out of Youngstown only to find that the van carrying me out of Youngstown carried a load of ideas on how this prison in Toledo could further harass me.
Just a year ago we recognized 25 years since America’s longest prison riot. By now most of you know the details of the event that immediately brought in a unyielding era of state oppression from the selection of judges, and prosecutors to bribing witnesses to lie on us all while being harassed and assaulted by prison staff. Harassment that has been constant for 26 years now for those of us that speak out, that refuse 2 accept unjust verdicts as legally binding.
