Tonight a bunch of folks put on a noise demo in front of an NYC women’s correctional facility for Mother’s Day. In solidarity with all those incarcerated, abused, and especially those who won’t get to see their kids this Mother’s Day, we clapped and chanted “WE’LL DESTROY ALL THE PRISONS ONE DAY! HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!” The women were flicking the lights on and off, waving lighters and dancing in the windows. At some point you could tell they were having a dance party inside, because they were making their own rhythms and chanting each others’ names. (“You go girl” was my favorite chant by far.) Fuck prisons, fuck patriarchy.
Overwhelmed with feelings.
