From a Prisoner:

Get BAsics "into the hands of youth who are in danger of becoming prisoners themselves"

[Letter postmarked: June 15,2011]

I hope this letter finds you all in the best of health and as enthusiastic as ever about making revolution.

I am one of the many prisoners who depends on the generous donations given to the PRLF.  Without those donations I wouldn’t have been able to receive this copy of BAsics which I hold in one hand as I write this letter.  I want to thank all PRLF volunteers and all the donors who have contributed to the campaign to get 2,000 copies of BAsics inside of prisons.

I also want to urge everybody out there to get their hands on this book and to help get it into the hands of others, not just prisoners, but into the hands of youth who are in danger of becoming prisoners themselves.  There are kids out there who actually know that life in prison could be part of their foreseeable future.  I know because I was one of those kids.  Get this book into their hands now before they end up in a cell next to mine for hurting someone in their own community.  Direct them to BAsics 3:16, show them there’s another way and bring them forward.  Help them unlock their potential and give them a sense of purpose that doesn’t involve killing each other.  Give them an alternative to the criminal lifestyle that doesn’t involve conforming to this horrid system.  That is what they need, that is what they ache for.  They want to rebel, they just have to be introduced to the correct way to do so.  Put them on the path to becoming communists…

Keep up the great work       

In Solidarity,

Prisoner in California
