Prison Radio
Peter “Pitt” Mukuria

Peter Kamau Mukuria, that is M-U-K-U-R-I-A. I’m currently over here at Jessup Correctional Institution in the state of Maryland. First of all, I just want to say, I really really miss you and I really appreciate that, and it also speaks like, it speaks volumes about the reach that Prison Radio has, and how effective it can be in building that bridge between those incarcerated and those in society. And for that, I believe the essentialness of the solidarity that we have built over the years.

And as always, I ask that we continue to show our support to Mumia Abu-Jamal and Kevin Cooper in California, and as always, all incarcerated people, and by the way, my other fellow comrade, Kevin Rashid Johnson. He is currently at Sussex I State Prison in the state of Virginia though. He is still going through some oppression, and he is back and forth, back and forth, being put in general population and being back to segregation. So I ask you to please support my brother. And he’s also undergoing cancer treatment, which is also another game in all the stuff that they have been playing, obviously toying with his life. I think I’ve spoken on this before, hopefully, people have had a chance to hear that story. But yeah, let’s continue to show our love and support to Kevin Rashid Johnson.

I really appreciate everybody’s support. Before I close, what about the, [laughs] the Alabama River fight that I think everybody has seen. The sad reality about it, that, you know, everybody’s laughing about it like, it’s a joke, but the sad reality about it is that this is something that happened, you know, like fifty years after the march on Selma. And, you know, for such, you know, racial animosity to still continue to exist, and the ignorance that these men was showing, and their arrogance, and just how they were, you know, moving as though they were entitled, even though they were wrong and they were holding up other people from docking. So it’s sad but, you know, when I thought about it, you know, this is something that’s happening still fifty years after the march on Selma.

I don’t get it, you know, how much progress have we really made? I think for the most part, we have made a lot of progress, however there’s still some parts bad. Unfortunately, it’s not surprising to hear that it’s in Alabama, of all places. You know, but it sad, that you know it’s still the case even here, but, you know, we got to continue to fight for a better world, a world that you know, we all based equally and we just got to, you know, continue fighting for. As always, all incarcerated people, that they’ll have a great, great day.
