Scaling the wall: what to do if you get stuck while reading Marx’s Capital

Libcom - Thu, 12/12/2013 - 07:33
Street-Art-Climb-Over-Books-220x293.jpg

Lots of people who start Karl Marx's Capital get stuck somewhere in the early chapters of volume 1. In this post, I make some suggestions about how to get unstuck and read the whole book.

In 1998 I started trying to read Karl Marx’s Capital, volume 1. I failed. I tried again, and failed. I tried again, and failed. This happened repeatedly over the next four or five years. I would get fifty or so pages in, get confused or bored, and give up.

12/12/13: Urgent Campaign for Robert Seth Hayes, #74-A-2280

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Thu, 12/12/2013 - 06:04

UPDATED campaign for Thursday 12/12 & Friday 12/13:

Robert Seth Hayes is one of the longest held political prisoners in the US. He is being held at Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, NY. He is very sick and needs your help. Mr. Hayes suffers from diabetes mellitis, as well as hepatitis C. He has lost 40 pounds over the past three months. This constitutes unintentional weight loss of 22% of his original body weight. The degree of his weight loss as well as the time frame over which the weight loss has occurred is alarming. Seth requires urgent evaluation of his weight loss which should include a complete evaluation for cancer and other causes of abnormal weight loss. To date he has not received this evaluation. DOCCS is mandated to provide appropriate medical care to incarcerated persons. Appropriate medical care, in this case, requires urgent diagnosis of the cause of his rapid weight loss and appropriate treatment. We must act now! It is crucially important that we pressure Sullivan Correctional Facility to provide appropriate medical treatment for Seth.

*THINGS YOU CAN DO:*

1) On *Thursday, Dec. 12th, call Dr. Sidorowicz*, Health Services Facility Director at Sullivan Correctional Facility at *(845) 434-2080 ext 6126* — if that extension doesn’t work you can also try ext 6124 and ext 6117 (these go to the nurse’s station) and *Dr. Carl J. Koenigsmann*, Chief Medical Officer, DOCCS Division of Health Services at (518) 457-7073

Suggested talking points:
a) Briefly state your concerns regarding the health of Robert Seth Hayes, #74-A-2280. — Mr. Hayes has lost 40 lbs which constitutes a 22% loss of his original body weight. — He has been denied appropriate and necessary medical treatment for this weight loss, which includes a work-up for the cause of this weight loss.
b) Ask why Mr. Hayes hasn’t received the recommended & necessary medical work-up and treatment; and
c) Demand that Seth Hayes be transferred to an outside medical facility where he can receive an appropriate work-up and treatment.

2) On *Friday, Dec. 13th, fax a letter* on Seth’s behalf (*sample letter below *which can be edited and signed by either a medical advocate or a non-medical advocate). Please fax letters to:
a) Dr. Sidorowicz at Fax: 845-434-2462 and
b) Dr. Carl J. Koenigsmann at Fax: 518-457-2115

Dear Dr. Koenigsmann,

My name is *****. I am a physician at *****. I am writing on behalf of Robert Seth Hayes, #74-A-2280, DOB 10-15-48, who is currently a prisoner at Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, NY. Mr. Hayes suffers from diabetes mellitis, as well as hepatitis C. I am writing because Mr. Hayes has lost 40 pounds over the past three months. This constitutes unintentional weight loss of 22% of his premorbid body weight. The degree of his weight loss as well as the time frame over which the weight loss has occurred is alarming and more than meets the criteria for cachexia. Mr. Hayes requires urgent evaluation of his weight loss which should include a complete evaluation for cancer and other causes of cachexia. To date he has not received this evaluation. DOCCS is mandated to provide appropriate medical care to incarcerated persons pursuant to the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Appropriate medical care, in this case, requires urgent diagnosis of the cause of his rapid weight loss and appropriate treatment. I strongly urge you to transfer Mr. Hayes to an outside medical facility immediately for appropriate diagnosis and treatment. I thank you for your attention to these medical matters. I can be reached at ***** for any questions.

Sincerely, **********

cc: Dr. Sidorowicz, Health Services Facility Director at Sullivan Correctional Facility Anthony J. Annucci, Acting Commissioner Elizabeth Ritter, Assistant Commissioner Nancy A. Lyng, MS, Director of Health Services

Background:

Robert Seth Hayes is currently 65 years old. He was first diagnosed with Type II diabetes in the year 2000. In the 13 years since then, DOCCS has been completely unable to control his blood sugar levels. At the time he was diagnosed, Mr. Hayes was at Clinton. He was transferred to Wende in 2003 and then to Sullivan in 2010.

Throughout this time, Mr. Hayes’ sugar levels have either soared to the 300 to 400 levels or been extremely low, in the 50 to 70 levels, both life-threatening. Mr. Hayes also has Hepatitis C, for which he is currently not receiving any treatment.

Mr. Hayes has lost 40 pounds in recent months and currently weighs only 140 pounds. This is extremely rapid and dangerous weight loss. Diabetes is an insidious disease, and the constant sugar fluctuations can lead to renal failure, coma or stroke.

NYS DOCCS states on its website that denial of adequate medical care is a violation of a person’s eighth amendment constitutional rights, as this would be cruel and unusual punishment. Of course, adequate medical care would include a diabetic diet, which is absolutely not provided by NYS DOCCS. Additionally, they refuse to allow food package items such as diabetic cookies and candies.

Since NYS DOCCS has been completely unable to control Mr. Hayes’ sugar levels during the past 13 years, the community requests that he be taken to an outside medical facility for a complete diagnosis and adequate care.

Of course, if Robert Seth Hayes had been released on parole instead of having 15 years added to his sentence by the NYS DOCCS Parole Board, he would be a free man today and would have better access to adequate medical care than he currently does.

Please write, call, fax and email the following people and insist that Robert Seth Hayes, DIN No. 74-A-2280, be taken to an outside medical facility as soon as possible. If you are a doctor, nurse, or any other kind of medical personnel, please use your letterhead.

Please email nycjericho@gmail.com and let us know what response you receive. Also, if you are able to find out any additional phone or fax numbers, we will be grateful for the information.

Alex Stuck Released, Issues Statement

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Tue, 12/10/2013 - 19:18

Celebrate! Our comrade Alex has been released! He wrote the following statement on December 5th, 2013.

Dear friends and comrades,

Sorry it’s taken me so long to put this out. I’ve been working on my transition back in to the world and so far everyone has been great with helping me out with everything. I kinda feel like a new born, HA. Anyway, I just wanted to write something and post it up for everyone to see that I’m out now and am doing ok. Most of all I want to say thank you to everyone for helping me with everything during my incarceration. It’s still so very surreal. Prison was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but people like all of you who exist with your endless love: I couldn’t have done any of this without you. I would also like to thank you for all the help you’ve been giving my four friends during their stint in Dante’s Inferno. It’s really hard to put into words how much all of you mean to me. Because of you I’ve been able to survive and stay strong. Your solidarity continues to leave me speechless. I want to thank you for all the books and amazing letters that I received. I hope my letters made it to you. I did my best to personally write everyone back and if you didn’t here back from me it’s prolly because the gestopo was withholding my mail. I want to personally thank the whole A.R.A. network, Denver, New York, and south side ABC, and every other chapter in between; Kieran (your mom’s books are great), Philly antifa, Kat from Oak Roots Press, all the kids in Germany, Allina Dollot in France, and especially my home crew in Lafayette and Bloomington (you guys are the best!), my big brothers NOMAD and TELLY; oh and my homie Petey from Sacramento Prisoner Support. Last but not least I wanna thank two very special people that I hold very dear to my heart: Stephanie from the Bloomington ABC and Sara Garber, my amazing lawyer. If I believed in guardian angels I would be convinced that you two were the real deal… I love you both soooooo fucking much! Thank you to anyone who wrote a letter; went to a fundraiser; made a visit; told some one about our case; and kept me, John, Jason, Cody, and Dylan in your hearts. All of you mean so much to me; without you all of this would have been a nightmare. Thank you so, so much!

H.A.R.M. SKIN for life!

ANTIFA FOREVER! FOREVER ANTIFA! FREEDOM NOW FOR THE TINLEY PARK 4!!!!!!

Love and Rage,
Alex Stuck

“HELP BRING ME HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS” a life and death appeal from renowned people’s attorney Lynne Stewart.

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Mon, 12/09/2013 - 07:30

“I need to ask once again for your assistance in forcing the Bureau of Prisons to grant my Compassionate Release. They have been stonewalling since August and my life expectancy, as per my cancer doctor, is down to 12 months. They know that I am fully qualified and that over 40,000 people have signed on to force them to do the right thing, which is to let me go home to my family and to receive advanced care in New York City.

“Yet they refuse to act. While this is entirely within the range of their politics and their cruelty to hold political prisoners until we have days to live before releasing us – witness Herman Wallace of Angola and Marilyn Buck – we are fighting not to permit this and call for a BIG push.”

Lynne Stewart, FMC Carswell

Take Action between now and the New Year. Telephone and send emails or other messages to Federal Bureau of Prisons Director Charles E. Samuels, Jr. and Attorney General Eric Holder.

CHARLES E. SAMUELS, Jr., Director Federal Bureau of Prisons
(202) 307-3250 or 3062; info@bop.gov

ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER, U.S. Department of Justice
(202) 353-1555; AskDOJ@usdoj.gov

Contact U.S. Embassies and Consulates in nations throughout the world

LET US CREATE A TIDAL WAVE OF EFFORT INTERNATIONALLY. Together, we can prevent the bureaucratic murder of Lynne Stewart.

Notes:

In a new 237-page report entitled “A Living Death,” the American Civil Liberties Union documents unconstitutional practices permeating federal and state prisons in the United States.

Focused on life imprisonment without parole for minor offenses, the ACLU details conditions of 3,278 individual prisoners whose denial of release is deemed “a flagrant violation of the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment” occurring on an increasing scale.

The ACLU labels the deliberate stonewalling as “willful,” a touchstone of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Department of Justice flagrant violation of the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

These conclusions corroborate the findings of Human Rights Watch in 2012: “The Answer is ‘No’: Too Little Compassionate Release in U.S. Prisons.”

The Report is definitive in exposing arbitrary and illegal conduct that infuses every facet of the treatment accorded Lynne Stewart.

“…the Bureau has usurped the role of the courts. In fact, it is fair to say the jailers are acting as judges. Congress intended the sentencing judge, not the BOP to determine whether a prisoner should receive a sentence reduction.”

Lynne Stewart’s medical findings show less than twelve months to live as stipulated by her oncologist at FMC Carswell.

The Federal Bureau Prisons has failed to file the legally required motion declaring solely that the matter is “with the Department of Justice.”

'Europe' in Ukraine: many things to lots of people

Again, on the protests in Ukraine; this time mostly on the attitude towards 'Europe' among the several forces within the protests.

Again, there is mass protest in Ukraine. On Sunday, 8 December, hundreds of thousands have been gathering in Kiev, the capital. Demonstrators torn down a statue of Lenin, still seen as symbol of Russian domination.

Inside and against the university

Libcom - Sat, 12/07/2013 - 11:42
strike2[1].jpg

With recent strikes, occupations, and violent repression, the university is becoming a battleground. What does this mean for university staff and students?

To begin, I should stress that the choice to be inside the university is disappearing. Whether by escalating indebtedness, involuntary outsourcing, or indeed, summary suspension for political activity, exclusion from the university is making a comeback.

We confront the university less and less as a place of an idealised 'Education', and more and more as an exploitative boss, a spendthrift landlord, a creditor, and an instigator of violent repression. The blood on the pavement at UCL symbolises this shift.

Nelson Mandela: some thoughts

Libcom - Fri, 12/06/2013 - 12:02
mandela3.jpg

Some brief reflections on Nelson Mandela, his politics, and legacy.

I must admit to having a lump in my throat when I found out that Nelson Mandela had died (although not sure why) Whatever my thoughts are on him as a person, the ANC, or his legacy, the passing of such a towering international figure deserves honest reflection.

Nelson Mandela himself – who left prison penniless – has a fortune that his family are now fighting over like vultures. Clearly a far cry from the lives of the average South African who generally do not have a pot to piss in!

URGENT: Oso Blanco needs our help!

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Thu, 12/05/2013 - 09:19

Email forward:

My good friend Oso Blanco (Byron Chubbuck) called me tonight very upset and asking for help. He said a staff person was checking their cell for “extra clothing” and grabbed a sheet of paper laying (out in the open!) of a simple drawing Oso did. He has been trying to establish where various Cherokee memorials / battlefields / landmarks / burial mounds are in relation to his current location – Lee USP. The drawing was only of a prison and a fenced in burial mound he thought he saw upon his arrival. That’s it!

Oso and his cellie, Raymond Locklear, were thrown into the hole for possessing an “escape tool”. Oso says its an insane charge but this is why to take it serious as he feels its a setup. He is worried they will place him back in a Special Management Unit (SMU) – this is what he was just in for years and most of it is solitary confinement and phone/commissary restrictions and so forth.

Please please take a second to call or email as soon as you get this on behalf of Byron Chubbuck #07909051:
Phone: 276-546-0150 Fax: 276-546-9115
E-mail address2: LEE/EXECASSISTANT@BOP.GOV

Oso specifically is worried that ANY DAY now a DHO (disciplinary judge) will come and rule unfavorably on this bullshit “escape tool” charge. He is worried he will be back in isolation SMU for another unforseeable length of time. He sounded very upset by this possibility and asked EVERYONE to please call in on his behalf (and Raymond Locklear) to get this ridiculous charge dismissed or removed altogether.

Since we don’t know the name of the officers/staff involved just ask to speak with someone concerning him or ask to speak to the warden.

Another way to show support and let the prison know we are watching them is to send Oso a letter or postcard or ANYTHING so the prison sees support that way too.
Byron Chubbuck #07909051
USP LEE
U.S. PENITENTIARY
P.O. BOX 305
JONESVILLE, VA 24263

Thanks to you all for this important & immediate call-out. Let me know if you have any further questions. Oso said he has followed all rules while at Lee USP – he’s in an art class, has attended a sweat lodge ceremony and doesn’t want any problems. Just wants to be left alone after years and years of problems and solitary confinement at other USP’s.
Let’s be sure he is not setup!

Wednesday Dec 4th: Annual Political Prisoner Holiday Card Making Party!

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Tue, 11/26/2013 - 06:22

“Chestnuts Roasting on an open Fire to the Prisons”
Wednesday December 4th, 6:30pm
27 Social Centre, 2727 W. 27th Ave Denver

Join Denver ABC for our annual letter writing and card making party for U.S. held political prisoners and prisoners of war.

For over 100 members of our social movements who have been kidnapped from their communities and families, the holidays can be a particularly trying time. A card or short note from someone on the outside can make all the difference for those who have been taken away from everyone they love. All the materials that you need will be provided: paper, art supplies, prisoner addresses, etc. We just need YOU!

This is a family friendly event, so bring the kids, your friends, or anyone else you can. If you can bring any extra art supplies, especially markers or colored pencils (but NO crayons, glue, glitter or anything else that violates prison regulations) that would also be amazingly helpful.

An assortment of vegan and non-vegan treats and baked goods will be provided as well as other refreshments.

We hope you’ll take a couple hours out of your time to show your support and love for our comrades and join us on December 4th.

SOLI!
