Thank you for bringing this to light, Nancy.  This:

It is a hard and unpopular truth to say that all oppressions are connected, to say that our treatment of other species and the Earth herself has served as the paradigm for our oppression of peoples. But it has.

It is a harder and even more unpopular truth to say that all oppressions must be undone and undone together. The lust for the false power derived from relations of domination – directed anywhere – is at the root.

Very powerful, Nancy.  Thank you.  I grew up in rodeo culture and walked away from it for reasons that are clear here.  We humans and the animals - and the earth itself – live in interdependent relationship.  We keep trying to keep that under our own control, but it is not.

You all may think i am crazy but these are the most important words i have written here -- 

What if the prison industrial complex and the social inequality which under girds it were somehow undone? What would prevent the lingering desire to crate the sow, cage the bird, chain the dog, beat the horse, gore the ox from erupting - again towards us - in some newly imagined and monstrous application?

Bar None.

I also encourage you to read the Vine Sanctuary News guest post by incarcerated animal activist Manuel C Salas, Connections in Advocacy Work.... Yes

For more on the noxious Warden Cain, see James Ridgeway and Daniel Bergner,. Both had to sue Angola to gain access.

See also Wilbur Rideau, now released but one time editor of the Angolite and author of In the Place of Justice. Cain tied to silence and maybe?? kill him..

Thanks to LSP Angola inmates -- Everett and Sirvoris Sutton - for telling us what they thought and what they knew, even in the face of repercussions..


Always holding the best thoughts for you as you endure that hard place.
