To Our PRLF (Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund) Subscribers
October 5 is only weeks away! But there is enough time to do what needs to be done, if we rise to the challenge before us.
This is an opportunity for prisoners to exercise their initiative and creativity to participating in these nationwide actions.
“We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime’s program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history. Acting in this way, we join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.”
From the Call from World Can’t Wait—Drive Out the Bush Regime!
Prisoners have a unique position in society. Your life experience and the life experience of your friends and family show first hand the truth of what America is all about. What you say and do can make a real difference in making the actions of October 5 commensurate with what needs to be done.
Prisoners can participate in bringing word about October 5 to their friends and family. Ask them to contact all their friends and encourage them do all that they can to participate. They can break out of work or school and join the protests that day. They can contact WCW organizing committees in their cities and towns. And if there is no committee, they can organize one of their own and/or send in contributions.
Write to PRLF and report what you and others are doing to support October 5.

A prisoner writes:
“As I was reading a copy of your newspaper dated 9-18-05 on page 8 I came across an ad for a t-shirt. It is the design of a ‘Wanted’ poster of the Bush Regime. I am incarcerated and am unable to order the t-shirt or print the poster. If at all possible could you please send a copy of this poster to be proudly displayed on my cage.”
Another prisoner writes:
“The call that’s going out to mobilize to drive out the wicked Regime [is] a call badly needed and long overdue!
“I can’t do as much as I would like to do but my goal has always been to share the ‘R’ [REVOLUTION newspaper] with everyone! And hope that they can accept the truth and stop pretending.
“The bottom line is this, No one in the proletarian communities truly believes in the system. So why support its actions when its true purpose is to continue to Dehumanize us? That doesn’t make any sense.
“Frederick Douglass said ‘The limit of what an oppressor will do to the people is set by the limits of what those people will accept.’
“My question is ‘How much more of this can you accept?’”
