I was reading articles on the crossroad support network site (which is a newsletter produced by and for political prisoners) and came across an interview w/ assata shakur. it was first printed in 1992, but her insight has relevance for today.
the interviewers were meg starr (ms), of the free puerto rico committee, and matt meyer (mm), of the war resister's league.
it's rather lengthy, so i am gonna just post some topics she covers, the question, and parts of her response. so each topic will be a diff post.
btw, i have no idea if it's even legal for me to do this.
ok, here we go!
i'm a tru pisces tryna flow in the direction of both of these okplayer quotes:
"I m raising a fuckin angelic being who is going to replenish this fuckin earths cuz in 2G all we fuckin do is talk.....im teachin my seed to turn his spirit inside out and spread beams of green light"
"GOd give me the strength to change the things i can, understanding for those i cannot and the muthafuckin heart to stand up for my beliefs and principles, so that when the government that is suppossed to protect me turns against me and my people we will have the means, the might and the muthafuckin gun power to blow away our oppressors
and last but not least:
"all things considered, i'd rather be me"
