It is Prison Friday at Scission and we return to our roots with this update on Prisoner of War Norberto Gonzalez Claudio. It is one day less then a year since my last post about this man which you can read here.
Norberto has spent that year, of course, behind bars and being subject to lousy treatment of all sorts. That doesn't stop as the post below will show.
Yes, here in the land that loves to spend its time accusing everyone else in the world of human rights violations, the human rights violations go on unaccounted for and with no shame whatsoever. They don't happen, if the USA says they don't and the USA says they don't.
We know otherwise. We cannot sit still when those who have dedicated their lives to the struggle for social justice, economic emancipation, and in the case of Norberto, for the freedom and independence of his homeland, Puerto Rico.
Scission join a host of others in denouncing the inhuman treatment Norberto is currently receiving and we, too, demand that he receive the medical care and attention which is his right.
The following is from People of Color Organize.
