“As a Panther, and as someone who went underground as an urban guerilla, I have put my life on the line. I have watched my comrades die and have spent most of my adult life in prison. But I still believe we can win. Struggle is very tough and when you cross that line, you risk going to jail, getting seriously hurt, killed, and watching your comrades getting seriously hurt and killed. That is not a pretty picture, but that is what happens when you fight an entrenched oppressor. We are struggling and will make it rough for them, but struggle is also going to be rough for us, too.” –Ashanti Alston
