Chicano political prisoner Xinachtli calls on all freedom fighters, liberation-movement organizations to unite to build the National United Front Prison Lives Matter movement

Xinachtli, s/n Alvaro Luna Hernandez, is the longest-held Chicano political prisoner in the United States, targeted by the COINTELPRO-style police state apparatus to stop him from organizing oppressed communities and from becoming a stronger symbol of resistance in the occupied territories of Aztlan, the US Southwest once belonging to Mexico but colonized by forces of US Yankee colonialism and imperialism, after several wars of conquest and annexation in the expansionism of the colonial system by white settler colonists. See “An Indigenous People’s History of the United States” by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, 2014 Beacon Press. 

Xinachtli was a NGO Human Rights delegate of the International Indian Treaty Council, San Francisco-based at the 49th Session, United Nations Commission on Human Rights at Geneva, Switzerland, March-April 1993, where he delivered a presentation to the UN General Assembly denouncing the historical war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, hypocrisy of the U.S. government and its double standard on human rights, and calling for reparations and for freedom and self-determination for Black, Chicano and other indigenous nations enslaved by US Yankee international colonialism and imperialism.

He has been at the forefront of freedom struggles on behalf of the oppressed prisoner class in the racist, notorious Texas prison system for many years fighting for human rights, for prisoners’ rights to receive revolutionary publications, Hernandez v. Estelle, 788 F. 2d 1154 95th Cir. 1979, on suppression of “The Torch/La Antorcha” theoretical journal of the Revolutionary Socialist League, NY, now going on 20-plus years in consecutive solitary confinement at the notorious control unit at the James V. Allred Unit in Iowa Park, TX, a racist, inhumane prison sustained by prisoner slave labor. See “We are not slaves” by Robert T. Chase.

Xinachtli welcomes wholeheartedly the ideas and formations put forth in Comrade Kwame Shakur and Jalil Muntaqim’s proposal to build the National United Front: Prison Lives Matter movement with revolutionary political education projects inside for the development of cadres and supported by the outside in a proposed Texas Regional Organizing Committee; as well as now accepting a role as a member of PLM National Organizing Committee as designated Field Marshall and foot soldier in the building of our resistance movements outside and inside from New York to Texas to California and worldwide.

Xinachtli would be in charge of necessary work on the outside if released July 18, 2021, his projected release date.

Seize the time! Resist fascism! Workers and oppressed prisoners of all colors unite! Patria o muerto! Venceremos! Tierra y libertad!
