Some of the comments of a topic I started expressed some concerns about contemporary activism being something of a minefield. That anything direct and not-only-symbolic likely leads to jail.
So, how about something more pro-active? I propose a lottery where resources are donated and then distributed on the basis of one demonstrably having either liberated a person or person’s from US custody, or otherwise engaging in acts which actually disrupt the US prison/industrial complex. Break a friend or family member out of prison. Better yet, break a complete stranger out of prison. Sabotage a private prison company. Tase a cop and spring somebody from the squad car.
Score some loot! Put it on your CV as performance art! If it gets popular enough, maybe it could be a full-time job for the disenfranchised.
The goal is basically to overcome the smug feeling in the US that they can put away anybody they choose. Well - no you can’t. If you aren’t a trusted party, then you don’t get to be in custody of people. Sorry, better luck next time.
Obviously, it would be unlawful if this lottery was run from within US jurisdiction. So I suggest somebody do it from the Cayman Islands, or some such place.
