Solidarity for Anarchist and Anti-Racist Prisoner Chris Plummer Under Attack in Texas

On 8-26-97 I was removed from my cell, all my property was torn apart and all of my paper and envelopes were taken from me, about 20 minutes after I was taken out of my cell (this time without any clothing!) I was placed in the shower for approximately 2 hours. Then I was forced to walk (butt ass naked) out of the pod down the hall to F-pod to high precaution cell #76. I was later given a set of clothes and told that the Lt. wanted to speak with me. I was taken down the hall to a room where all my personal property was on a table. A Sgt. told me (with a video camera on) that I was being charged with conspiring to smuggle guns into the prison. This is bullshit. Since then I have been forced to strip and cell searches every 30 minutes. I have been threatened as well. I have not been allowed to have my property not even an envelope. My legal work has been destroyed and my legal mail opened.

Now let me give you some back ground info - thereís a brother here named Tony Collins who two years ago was busted with a .38 caliber pistol. Now he was convicted last month. Well on 8-23-97, three days before I got popped, I sent out a notice on behalf of Cell One to Frank San Miguel, Black Autonomy and Raze the Walls - to initiate the Emergency Response Network cause he was being threatened with death and he needed some help. I then let Warden Moya know I was in firm support of Mr. Collins and that I would pursue all legal means if he was assaulted or harmed in any way.

I have been pulled out of my cell an average of 13 times per 8 hour shift. I have not had a solid hours sleep in three days. They refuse to allow me to even have stamps or writing materials. And I have no doubt that soon they will carry out some of their threats. Of course, there is alot I canít put into words as they will manipulate it.

Please photo copy this and put it out there. Ask that people call and write to the Warden here and the Director of the Texas Department of Corrections. This is urgent.

Refuse, Resist, Exist, Chris
