(This is the message that Kevin Cooper prepared for the March 1st benefit for Occupy4Prisoners)
This is Kevin Cooper, and I’m calling you to say something to each and everyone of you who is fighting for our collective human rights.
Especially to those of you who on February 20th came to this modern day plantation called San Quentin prison to show your support for, and solidarity with people like me.
That something I want to say is “Thank You”!
What you have shown, and continue to show is the truth, there is no power greater than the power of the people!
The late Malcolm X once stated that “Power in defense of freedom is greater than power on behalf of tyranny and oppression!”
I wholeheartedly agree.
Peace to you, and thank you again.
In Struggle & Solidarity,
From Death Row at San Quentin Plantation,
I’m Kevin Cooper
