Fort Dix 5 political prisoners respond at Camden hearing
By John McDevitt
The narrative that victims are the perpetrators that is pumped out by the media is a centerpiece of the systemic justification of the incarceration of poor, working and oppressed people in New Jersey and around the country. Now in an elections year, the candidates who are vying to manage this system for the rich are promoting hate more and more each day. Gov. Chris Christie, who is running as a Republican nominee for president, has built his campaign on this and in particular anti-Muslim hatred. The fight to challenge the system that jails our people is not separate from fighting these campaigns based on racism and bigotry.
Please read my latest article that appeared in Liberation News on the case of the Fort Dix 5. Their freedom is part of the demand to decarcerate New Jersey.
