by Ed Mead
Fierce and Fabulous Krew
Ed Mead is a revolutionary, Queer, Godless Commie and Ex-Political Prisoner who went to jail for his part in a group called the George Jackson Brigade, which carried out a number of bombings, prisoner liberation's and bank expropriations to further anti-capitalist struggle in the Pacific Northwest.
Earful of Queer talked with Ed about the history of his incarceration and his work with the revolutionary prison group called Men Against Sexism, which used violence and the threat of violence to stop rape within prisons in the Northwest of America in the 70s.
We hear about the rise and fall of Men Against Sexism, failed escape attempts by Ed Mead & other revolutionaries, and the state of prison resistance then and now.
This is a beautiful collection of stories of queers engaged in class war against the state, and of small victories in that struggle.
