The beauty of Romaine 'Chip' Fitzgerald is the essence of his humanity, transitioned to the realm of the Ancestors while leaving a rich legacy and clear message with us to fight the good fight knowing that the oppressors can neither jail nor shackle the spirit of liberation. Every day is a victory.
It is my sincere hope this letter will be received in the same spirit of appreciation and cooperation in which it is written. First and foremost, I wish to acknowledge the courage and independent thinking and actions you demonstrated in the unannounced visit to inspect the conditions of confinement at Pelican Bay State Prison Security Housing Unit and speak with the strike leaders.
Romaine “Chip” Fitzgerald, the longest serving Black Panther political prisoner, has ended his hunger strike. Calls from supporters convinced the warden to release him from AdSeg - the hole - and return him to general population at Kern Valley State Prison. He is also being promised the medical care he needs. This is a people's victory!
