There has always been a war. As long as there are nation-states and borders there always will be. This doesn’t make the suffering of regular people caught up in them any less tragic or heartbreaking. And as long as there are prisons there will be people held inside them. This doesn’t make us feel any less for the people who are held by force behind the walls. Some of these people are held far longer than others because the ‘crime’ they are in for is the ultimate crime against the white supremacist settler state: resisting white supremacy itself.

Ruchell Magee is perhaps the longest held political prisoner by the ‘united states’ government; currently in his 59th year inside. Locked up in California on trumped-up charges in 1963, he happened to be in the Marin County courthouse on August 7, 1970, when Jonathan Jackson sought to free his brother George from the clutches of the state. Ruchell remains imprisoned to this day, at 83 years old, forced to suffer mentally and physically due to the poor conditions inside California’s prison camps.

This week NYC ABC and Page One Collective encourage folx at home to write to Ruchell “Cinque” Magee. Ruchell needs your support and action so that he can be released, spend time with his loved ones, and better his community. After 59 years of injustice, enough is enough. Free Ruchell Magee now!
