CALL-IN TO THE DURHAM JAIL MONDAY

dinner

DEMAND DIGNITY FOR HUNGRY PRISONERS!

Durham County Detention Center officials recently reduced prisoners’ evening meal to two cold sandwiches. Many people have reported that prisoners are going to bed hungry every night.**  On Monday, November 24th, 2014, we are going to flood the phone lines of the Durham County Detention Center with calls demanding that people inside get enough to eat.

A phone call takes just a few minutes. Please call!

WHAT TO DO:

Call 919-560-0912 and ask to speak with Lieutenant Colonel Natalie Perkins. If you are transferred to her voice mail box, please leave a message.

HERE IS A SUGGESTED SCRIPT (feel free to modify)

– I have heard that many inmates are going hungry at the jail.
– Two cold sandwiches are not enough for dinner. Prisoners are supposed to receive two hot meals per day.
– They shouldn’t have to buy commissary in order to avoid going to bed hungry.
– At Thanksgiving and throughout the year, please treat inmates with dignity by giving them all filling, hot meals.

That’s it!

Thank you for letting the jail authorities know we are watching and letting the people locked inside know they are not forgotten!

Durham Anarchists Vandalize National Guard Armory in Solidarity with Missouri Rebels

Reposted From Anarchist News

On the morning of October 17th, the National Guard Armory in Durham was the target of vandalism intended to disrupt weekend operations at the facility.

We glued five different sets of locks in order to prevent the entry or exit of vehicles from the fenced lot, chained the front doors shut, and left a message on the brick wall on the front of the building reading, “Disobey orders. Solidarity with Missouri Rebels. Fuck the Police.”

This simple act was done in solidarity with all who struggle against police harassment and occupation of their neighborhoods, and in particular with those insurgents in St. Louis and Ferguson, whose historic rebellion resulted in a National Guard occupation of their town. They remind us that when police murder the poor and people of color, the proper reaction is to riot.

We’re aware that our act is unlikely to cause major disruption at this facility. It is not a subsitute for other kinds of antagonism and combative struggle. Nonetheless, we see it as a gesture towards that time when such a facility provides crucial vehicles and arms to crush popular uprisings. If the future looks like civil war, let’s learn the terrain now rather than later.

To those who train at this facility, we would encourage you to think now about what it would mean to fire on your own neighbors and community members. Some of the most courageous soldiers in history have been those who disobeyed orders and refused to squash a popular rebellion. How will you be remembered when that time comes? Which side are you on? If it was your son or daughter murdered by the cops, what side then?

In defiance and fury,
– some bull city anarchists
