The launch is happening….
So an interview I did with a fellow inmate while I was in jail has been re-published as a feature story in Pambazuka News, an amazing Pan-Africanist media source which covers everything from LGBTIQ issues to human rights to forced migration, government corruption, and much more.
“NIKICIA G: To support prisoners, you have to hear the stories of different women, from all walks of life. You can never actually fully understand unless you’ve walked in their shoes. People need not to make more of an effort to understand lower class people, and not be ignorant to how society looks upon and treats those who are poor and have a criminal record. We need to rise up, and inform people on the real reason a person traffics firearms, or a person lashes out at the police. Illegal industries come out of poverty and inequality. Anger towards the police comes from the violence they have inflicted on us. There are so many ways we can be doing this, reaching out and volunteering in our communities, writing about what we have experienced, and letting the world know. Knowledge is key, and information is power.”
