Guilty County: New Pamphlet About The NC Latin Kings

From Prison Books

The publishing group Negate City just released a new pamphlet about the case against Jorge Cornell and the NC Latin Kings. If you are unfamiliar with the racist background of the Greensboro Police Department or the gang truce work of the NC Latin Kings then this pamphlet would be a good place to start. This is also a great pamphlet to make copies of and pass out to your friends and family to let them know what the federal government is trying to do to these men. You can find the zine here.
