Hi all,

We're proud to announce the summer release of Issue 16 of 
4strugglemag at 
Please see below for an introduction from political prisoner Jaan Laaman.

Thanks for your continued support of 4strugglemag - an important 
voice for prisoners across the continent.

Toronto ABCF

We begin by doing something we rarely do, dedicating this issue to an 
outstanding individual, a courageous sister, Marilyn Buck. Our 
primary section is on Black August (BA). You'll find Doc Holiday's 
historic words on the meaning and principles of BA. This is followed 
by Akili Castilin's essay on "A Generational Perspective" on BA. 
There are several other insightful articles in this section, as well 
as Kazi Toure's run down on the events and significance of August 7, 
1970. This August 7 is also the date of the national Running Down The 
Walls run, and information on that is at the end of this issue. 
Definitely check it out and join or start a RDTW run in your city or prison.

We have lots of information in "The Struggle Continues" section, on 
the G8/G20 events in Toronto, Canadian "Prisoners' Justice Day," the 
CMU in Marion and more.

In the "Revolutionary Analysis and Info" section, our central long 
piece is by Russell Maroon Shoats, entitled, "The Dragon and the 
Hydra." This essay adds to the discussion Bill Dunne began in issue 
15 with his article on the Tamil struggle in Sri Lanka. The 
theoretical question raised and discussed was on national liberation 
struggles and methods of revolutionary organization. 4SM welcomes 
serious and reasoned revolutionary analysis of these and related 
issues, especially from political prisoners (PPs) and others, who 
have hands on experience in these struggles. While 4SM pages are open 
to PPs and other revolutionaries' criticisms of national liberation 
as a strategy and various types of revolutionary and guerrilla 
organizations, this in no way should be interpreted as 4SM lessening 
its support for actual revolutionary struggles and professional and 
fighting organizations. As we clearly state in our general 
introduction in every issue, "4strugglemag is an independent 
non-sectarian revolutionary voice. We are unapologetically 
anti-imperialist and solidly in support of progressive national 
liberation, especially the struggles of New African/Black, 
Mexicano/Chicano, Puerto Rican and Native American Nations presently 
controlled by u.s. imperialism." There are several other thought 
provoking articles in this section.

We also have some book reviews, including Marland X's review of a 
Black Panther Party study, Will You Die with Me?, which readers will 
learn from.

4SM is always open to your revolutionary thoughts, criticisms and 
suggestions, poems and graphics too. We will have more reflection 
from Bill Dunne on the national liberation question, as well as 
reports back on the RDTW runs in the next issue. See you all in issue 
17, out in November, and like and old saying goes, if you don't like 
the news happening (the wars, the government repression, continuing 
job losses and house evictions), then go out and make some news of your own!

Freedom Is A Constant Struggle!
