Full Text:
John, George, Fleeta - Soledad Brothers Ericka Huggins Ruchell Magee Bobby Seale Angela Davis free all political prisoners The struggle against racism, against all the evils engendered by U.S. capitalism, must be carried forth wherever we find ourselves. My role (in prison) is to assist in the creation of another front of struggle. Numbers are important to any successful defense campaign. The demand to free all political prisoners must burst out of a movement encompassing the broad masses of people. Although quantity is of paramount importance, alone it is insufficient. The political content of a defense movement must be crystal clear at all times. In this context I would insist that the rallying cry of the campaign not be limited to "Free Angela Davis." Everyone participating must realize that I cannot be truly free as long as there exists another political prisoner. And, in turn, political prisoners will not know freedom until the last starving black child in Mississippi is assured nourishment, clothing and shelter.
