The P.O.W. Comminiqué
[In September 1970 Timothy Leary escaped from the California Men’s Colony, a state prison in San Luis Obispo, California, with the assistance of the Weather Underground, a clandestine revolutionary organization. He had been incarcerated since February 1970 for a marijuana possession conviction. This communiqué was released to the underground press shortly after his escape.]
The following statement was written in the P.O.W. camp and carried over the wall (in full sight of two gun trucks). I offer loving gratitude to my sisters and brothers in the Weather Underground who designed and executed the liberation. Rosemary and I are now with the Underground and we’ll continue to stay high and wage the revolutionary war.
