SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A lawyer for a Guantanamo prisoner charged in the Sept. 11 attack has filed suit against the prison commander, arguing a new rule subjecting legal mail to a security review is unconstitutional and amounts to illegal "intelligence monitoring" of a U.S. citizen.

Carl Dix, revolutionary leader and public speaker, to make major presentation, February 18th at The Riverside Church:
Mass Incarceration + Silence = Genocide
Mass Incarceration—Its Source, The Need to Resist Where Things Are Heading and The Revolution We Need!
Carl Dix, nationally renown revolutionary leader and speaker, will make an important and timely presentation at The Riverside Church on “Mass Incarceration + Silence = Genocide” on Saturday, February 18, 2012. The event is sponsored by Revolution Books NYC, and hosted by The Mission and Social Justice Commission of The Riverside Church.
An initiator and leader of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network’s “STOP Stop & Frisk” campaign in New York City, Dix will speak about the emergency situation today where close to 2.5 million people, mostly Black and Latino, are in prison; where racial profiling and “stop & frisk” serves as a pipeline to prison for generations of youth; and, where the formerly incarcerated are discriminated against on every front in society. Carl Dix says, “All this comes down to a slow genocide which could easily accelerate into fast genocide.”
Here in the New York area in the past week, the NYPD has again provoked public outcry over the beating and killing of young Black men. With public displays of disgust, anger, and protest rising over the illegal and racist NYPD practice of stop & frisk, this presentation is more than timely for those looking for a way out of this madness. There is a way and that is revolution.
On February 18th, Dix will get into and break down why nothing short of revolution is needed to end the injustice of mass incarceration and everything else foul this system enforces on humanity.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 4:00 PM at The Riverside Church, Assembly Hall, 490 Riverside Drive, New York #1 IRT to 116th or 125th Street * Enter at Claremont Avenue between 120th and 122nd Streets

"If you don't have a poetic spirit -- or at least a poetic side -- it is very dangerous for you to lead a Marxist movement or be the leader of a socialist state." -- Bob Avakian, 1990
For prisons have become a metaphor; the shadow-side, if you will, of America. With oceans of words about freedom, and the reality that the U.S. is the world's leader of the incarceration industry, it's more than time for the focused attention of the Occupy Movement.
