And as I address in our public newsletter in,


Dear Society:


Feeling ridiculous for needing to result to these extreme measures, ladies and gentleman, I guess I’ll call this my Hunger Protest Notice. A typed copy of it can be viewed or printed from our website.


It costs “society” about $120,000 every year to imprison me in this most notorious maximum security prison in our nation, KP. That’s about an added $720, 000 to “wrongly imprison\detain” me for even the entire 6 years of my intended statutory release (SR, the final one third of my 21 years that I was sentenced to serve “society”, not warehoused in psychotic KP).


Yet the above and various other massive violations crushing us are part of this protest. They are only “side issues” that viciously exploit our poverty.


Using an old flyer from our newsletter as a “cover page” to place faces to names. It also starts to explain “the spark” that ignited the relentless tortures upon Angie and I ever since the Sharif scandal in 1993.
