Tom Manning: Freedom Fighter, Political Prisoner

From the Preface by Robby Meerpol:

Tom’s been incarcerated for 34 years. But evenĀ before he received his current life sentence he was trapped by theĀ limited choices left to an impoverished child surviving in Boston’sĀ infamous Maverick Street Projects. The military during the Vietnam eraĀ seemed like a way out, but that too became a hellish form ofĀ confinement.

Tom broke free, he revolted. He became a revolutionary.Ā He committed the unforgivable sin of confronting today’s greatĀ imperial empire, the United States, on its home turf. For that,Ā I expect the prison industrial complex will do its best to keep himĀ confined for as long as it can.
