Richard Williams Has Passed Away

Political prisoner Richard Williams passed away on Wednesday, December 7th. He had spent over twenty years behind bars for having taken up arms against the U.S. government in the 1980s, as part of the United Freedom Front.

It is a disgrace that any person die in prison… but it is a disgrace particular to our movement that we are so ineffectual that people from within our movement, people who can serve as role models for our movement, people who have risked their lives for the causes that we too profess to believe it… it s a disgrace particular to our movement that we have not been able to do more to support these people.
