From Josh Wolf: Announcing

Posted by Josh Because Every Voice Deserves to Be Heard Originally uploaded by Insurgent is devoted towards empowering those behind bars and providing a means for them to get their reports, their stories, and their artwork out to the world. As a volunteer organization, works by pairing a prisoner with a sponsor who will transcribe their messages and put them up on a personal blog site set up for each participant.

In order for the project to be a success we’re going to need sponsors though, so if you have any interest in helping to get these perspectives out where they are accessible, then please sign up. Also, there are many artists in jails and prisons across the world, so if you have a scanner and can digitize someone’s artwork for the web your help is especially needed.

And even if you’re not interested in becoming a sponsor please visit because every voice deserves to be heard. *

Silence is a Message (Leonard Peltier)

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity. But silence is impossible. Silence screams. Silence is a message, just as doing nothing is an act. Let who you are ring out & resonate in every word & every deed. Yes, become who you are. There's no sidestepping your own being or your own responsibility. What you do is who you are. You are your own comeuppance. You become your own message. You are the message.

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse
