By: Comrades Carlo and Daniel Recognizing that we have enemies, we must analyze our community and determine class friend from class foe. When it comes to Tent City, an encampment below I-83, the class lines are deliberately blurred. There are a few reasons why it may be difficult to determine friend from foe, namely the way folks come at you.

Around 3:00 AM on Saturday morning, inmates once again rose in the maroon, slave rebel tradition, following in the footsteps of the Attica rebels of 1971, who rose and demanded to be treated as human beings, not as beasts. Reactionary governor Nelson Rockefeller mobilized the National Guard to suppress that uprising, resulting in several dead. On Saturday morning in the heart of Saint Louis, windows were smashed, items were thrown from windows, fires were lit, and banners/signs demanding “Freedom for 57” were made and displayed. “Free 57” refers to the 50 odd rebel inmates who were transferred to the Workhouse after previous demonstrations. This is a solidarity uprising and an uprising for human rights, and a natural response to state repression. A sign asking “What about Anthony Smith” was also seen. Anthony Smith was a Black man murdered by Police Officer Jason Stockley on December 20, 2011. The failure to indict Stockley touched off weeks of protests in 2017, which were met with brutal repression ordered by Mayor Lyda Krewson (D).

By: Comrade Redbeard California has become an epicenter of the coronavirus. Perhaps nowhere is this more clear than in Los Angeles County, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States and the world.
