*Hugo Pinell was assassinated at new Folsom State Prison. this is 
another example of the racism people of color inside those prisons are 
confronted with on a daily basis. like Comrade George, Hugo has been in 
the cross hairs of the system for years. His assassination exemplify how 
racist working in conjunction with prison authorities commit murderous 
acts like this. We saw it on the yard at Soledad in 1970 and we see 
it again on the yard at Folsom in 2015.

*His life was a living hell. We witness the brutality inflicted on him 
by prison guards as they made every effort to break him,  he endured 
more than fifty years of sensory deprivation, for decades  he was denied 
being able to touch his family or another human being,  as well as 
attempts on his life. This is cruel and unusual punishment! Hugo is not 
the monster that is being portrayed in social media / news media. The 
CDC is the real monster. *
*During the six trial we really got to know Hugo. He was as we all were 
under a lot of stress. His stress was heavier than mines because he had 
the additional load of being beaten on regular occasions. We saw the 
strength of his of his spirit, and through it all he manage to smile. *
*We mourn the loss of our comrade brother, yogi. We have been hit with a 
crushing blow that will take some time to recover from. We must expose 
those who under the cover of law orchestrated and allowed this murderous 
  act to take place. The prisoners who did it acted as agents of the 
state. It comes at a time when prisoners  are collectively trying to end 
decades of internal strife.  Those who took his life  have done a 
disservice to our movement, their actions served the cause of the same 
oppressor we fought against!  No longer do you have to endure the hatred 
of people who didn’t even know you and never dared to love you. You have 
represented George & Che well, and we  salute you!
