Attica means FIGHT BACK.
This week marks the 52nd anniversary of the Attica Prison Uprising.
"The story of Attica, Sept. 9, 1971, is the story of how prisons can be incubators of revolutionaries" (Larry Holmes)
Attica was spontaneous, but to the extent that it was led, it was organized by revolutionaries — highly political individuals who considered themselves Marxists, Maoists, Black liberationists. They organized committees for food and for negotiations. They put together 28 demands in a few hours! These included demands for fair treatment as workers with adequate pay, improved living and social conditions, among other things. Negotiations would eventually stall, and repression soon followed.
"Nelson Rockefeller, the oil billionaire then the governor, gave the orders to crush the uprising. . . . He ordered in more than 1,000 troops, guards and state troopers from four to five states around, to shoot indiscriminately. The state killed more than 30 prisoners and 10 hostages." (Larry Holmes)
We must remember the Attica Uprising as a pivotal moment in the fight for prisoners' rights and ultimately, liberation. The fight for which is far from over. 52 years ago Attica had a prison population roughly under 500,000. Now, it's population is six to seven times that number. This massive increase in incarcerations is reflected across the country. To this day "More than 1 million of those prisoners work within the prisons. They do construction and clear land, they do clothing manufacturing, or they work for McDonalds, ATT or Walmart. Many, many corporations are using prison labor." (Larry Holmes)

The extensive damage from this fire in Hawaiʻi is the consequence of over a century of capitalist exploitation since U.S. settlers seized the islands in the late 19th century. The Kānaka Maoli — as well as Indigenous nations in the continental U.S. and worldwide — deserve the solidarity of the world’s working class in their struggle to win liberation from settler-colonialism and imperialism to stamp out these practices.

On Aug. 15, the Biden Administration announced an inadequate “one time” payment of $700 per household affected by the fires. The total disaster relief pledged comes to just $3.8 million, which is a tiny amount, less than one-six-thousandth of the $24 billion Biden requested from Congress a week earlier for the imperialist proxy war in Ukraine.
