From the foreword:

"The Writers of this zine are a group of incarcerated young people at a juvenile (concentration camp) prison. We have been collectively incarcerated here for years, experiencing the abusive conditions and inhumane violence that the state keeps hidden from the public. It is within these prisons that we first learned about the life of Martin Sostre and engaged with his writings and legacy. In learning about his resistance to prison censorship and repression, assertions of bodily autonomy, jailhouse lawyering, and revolutionary political education, we have been inspired in our struggle against state violence. We wanted to make this zine to help spread Martin's life and legacy to other young people who are incarcerated."

Each purchase of this zine supports REAL Youth Initiative.
