On December 31st, over 80 people responded to the call for a noise demo outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in downtown Manhattan. The crowd easily filled the street in front of the institution and an aural ruckus filled the air from noisemakers, voices, air horns, a variety of drums, and even a proper brass trumpet.

Anti-prison and anti-police chants from the crowd accompanied a banner reading “BURN THE PRISON SOCIETY.” Rebels in the street cheered on the caged and excluded as they banged on their windows, flicked lights on and off, and gave other signals of life from within an otherwise deadening, lifeless building. We made sure those on the other side of the wall know that they are not alone.

We moved back and forth around the building to be sure everyone could hear our screams and tried to be as close as possible to the cell of anarchist hacker Jeremy Hammond as we chanted his name.

Let’s make 2013 a terrifying year for capitalists and state operatives the world over and a joyous year for those seeking the triumph of life over death.

OUR PASSION FOR FREEDOM IS STRONGER THAN THEIR PRISONS

FOR THE ANNIHILATION OF PRISON AND THE PRISON-SOCIETY
