    Gerald Koch is an NYC anarchist and legal activist. He has been subpoenaed two times to a federal grand jury in regards to a 2008 bombing of a times square army recruitment station (which he was not connected to). He has helped many activists who have been arrested. He is being held in contempt of court for, as he put it, refusing to "testify to the federal grand jury in ethical resistance to participation in a fruitless exercise of fear-mongering and government intimidation." Check out his support page and spread the word! Thanks! http://jerryresists.net/

    First Prison Statement from GJ Resister Jerry Koch

    Jerry’s first statement from inside:

    First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has supported me in so many ways these past three months. It has been a hell of a ride thus far, full of sudden transfers and inexplicable delays. In the face of all that, I’m doing all right, although I’d like to see the sun more and truly miss the color green. I miss my friends and my loved ones, and I’m looking forward to the day when I can finally rejoin you all in the land of the living. But I am holding strong. I do not know how much longer the State plans to keep me separated from my family and friends, but I will not bend.

    Compared to the vast majority in this prison, I’m lucky. I’m not facing the very real possibility of spending the rest of my life in this place, as so many of the men in my unit are. I am really fortunate to have such strong support on the outside. The solidarity everyone has shown is helping me through this and constantly reaffirms my resolve.

    The Federal Grand Jury that put me here is only the most recent facet of an assault on those who wish to be free of state surveillance and intimidation. This legal onslaught has already targeted and claimed the freedom of many anarchists, but we will keep fighting. I will keep fighting. My politics, principles and ethics stand in direct opposition with this legal tool that is used to further enable the government in its assault on anarchists, and I will not lend it any legitimacy, nor will I comply in any way.

    Thank you again to everyone for your truly beautiful acts of support. Your letters especially are helping me get through this, and I look forward to talking with many of you soon, on this side of the bars and beyond.

    Last, please take the next few minutes to write someone who is locked up—believe me, it will make their day.

    With love, with dignity, in solidarity, for anarchy,
    Jerry Koch
