Report from North Kern: Progress and chaos on the road to liberation

January 1, 2013

by Terrance White

We finally got a breakthrough with the CDCR here at North Kern State Prison: The ICC (Institutional Classification Committee) is starting to release their Ad Seg bodies back to the general population [out of solitary confinement]. They’re only keeping validated members now and not trying to validate a lot of people [as gang members or associates], so the IGI (Institutional Gang Investigators) are going over case files and double cell clearing us, not issuing validation packets and [instead] kicking us out of segregation.

But they have combined two buildings on D yard and B yard. So far D1 is half GPs (general population) and half SNY (Sensitive Needs Yard, including “debriefers”), and so is D2. And B yard has B3 and B4 the same way.

But B1 and B2 has no Northerners in it. The Northerners are all in B6 and B5. And all Whites can only go to B1, 2 and 3.

So we see it as they are trying to stop our peace treaty (the End of Hostilities agreement) that’s happening all across the state and on the streets. We know the comrades in the Short Corridor in PBSP SHU wanted this to work and we are all of like mind and stand in solidarity with them and others in this struggle with a united front in mass organizing and hope that no one allows the pig provocateurs to bring chaos to this liberation that we will all one day get from these oppressive conditions.

Thanks to all you collectives, lawyers, family and true comrades for all your support, love and loyalty. We are still far from reaching our goals, but we’re starting to weaken the Empire’s hold on us.

Dare to struggle, dare to win.

Dec. 26 update

I along with a few other New Afrikans, Latinos and poor whites have been released from Ad Seg. Apparently, there’s a promising class action lawsuit going on by a few Latinos that has shed some light on an IGI officer for fabricating validation packets.

The end of hostilities is working so far. I had a study session on my tier with Southern and Northern Hispanics, a few whites, and both Crips and Bloods on the importance of unity within this mass struggle for liberation.

They had an emergency Classification Committee on a Wednesday and released about 30 of us back to the general population yards here at North Kern State Prison and transferred a lot of people as well to various prisons.

The odd thing is some of the buildings here on D Yard are SNY and GP combined. My unit is a regular GP unit, but D4, D2 and D5 are mixed up. D1 is also all SNY, and then we hear C Yard has the same housing unit. Not too sure about B Yard.

We haven’t had yard in a few weeks due to the repairs to lay concrete for the wheelchair people, but there’s no segregation at the exercise pull-up bars that we see. Hopefully, the forward movement will cause our elders to be released from the SHUs after being buried alive for 25 to30 years.

One love, one struggle,
