Catching the police killings of many unarmed people on camera over the last couple of years has raised awareness about the pattern of excessive force by the police that needs to be stopped. A large percentage of the deaths occur in communities of color. I saw a recent Vice documentary program called Fixing the System in which a Baltimore policeman stated that the department targeted communities of color because higher conviction stats were easier to achieve there than in more affluent neighborhoods where the citizens can afford better legal representation. The system is biased and the problem needs to be addressed for the sake of equality and justice. Please support the movement to STOP POLICE TERROR!

Police are STILL killing. Its on us to stop it.

Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables

A few years ago I worked with Michael Stewart Foley on an image for his WitnessTorture.org campaign to close Guantanamo Bay. Recently, as a part of the 33 1/3 series of books, Michael Stewart Foley released “Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables,” documenting the Dead Kennedy’s foray into national politics and subsequent subcultural dominion from the formative front lines of the Bay Area punk rock scene of the 80’s. I love Michael’s comprehensive presentation of this history and was flattered to get a short mention in it. Hearing the Dead Kennedy’s made a great impression upon me. I first heard the “Let Them Eat Jellybeans” comp at the end of 1983 and got “Plastic Surgery Disasters” at the beginning of ’84. The song Bleed For Me made a very strong impression. Later, my work would be dismissively described by a NY Times reviewer as a mix of Russian and Dead Kennedy’s style propaganda. I proudly took that as a compliment! I have been fortunate to work with Jello Biafra on several projects, and I have also collected Winston Smith’s art including some original art for the Dead Kennedys. Needless to say, the Dead Kennedys have been a very important influence for me and many others. Michael’s book is essential to a cohesive understanding of punk’s infiltration of the social and political dystopias of the 80’s, fueling social transformation whose reach continues to this very day.
