Today, Black Hammer Celebrates the valiant and militant actions of Jonathan Peter Jackson, the 17-year-old brother of George Jackson—one of the three infamous ”Soledad Brothers” locked away and later killed by the state, inside California’s notorious San Quentin prison.
Jonathan P. Jackson is infamous for his connections to sellout and fake ‘revolutionary’ angela davis. Unlike davis, Jonathan understood the extent to which the united snakkkes would go in order to suppress the liberation of African people.
His brother, George Jackson, had been imprisoned for up to life inside Soledad State prison for a gas station robbery of $70. He would later be charged with the murder of a white prison guard after a riot occurred inside Soledad Prison on January 13, 1970.
Like his brother, George Jackson understood the urgency and militancy of a revolutionary organizer and held many sit-ins, actions, and most importantly, organized the prisoners to read and study the works of Mao, Ho Chi Minh and revolutionaries alike within the prison; forming a respected group of cadre revolutionaries that included many Black Panther Party members.
This profound injustice led Jonathan to take action against the state that was continuing to hold his brother as a political prisoner.
On August 7, 1970, Jonathan P. Jackson, brought 3 guns into the Marin County hall of injustice, where crackkker judge harold haley was presiding over the trial of a San Quentin prisoner and Black Panther Party member James McClain.
Jonathan drew weapons from his satchel, and with the assistance of McClain and 2 prisoners who were witnesses for McClain, Ruchell Magee and William A. Christmas, took judge haley, deputy district attorney gary thomas, and 3 female jurors hostage.
While in the courthouse, Jonathan Jackson and the other inmates attempted to negotiate the release of his brother, George, and the rest of the Soledad Brothers for the hostages they had taken.
They attempted to flee with the hostages, but the pigs and prison guards opened fire on the van Jackson was driving. At the end of the shootout, Jonathon, haley, McClain and Christmas were dead and the rest seriously injured.
Inspired by the heroic actions of his brother, George Jackson wrote about the level of militant and disciplined revolutionary consciousness Jonathan P. Jackson exhibited in his infamous book “Blood in My Eye” and urged all revolutionaries to learn from his late brother.
Only a year later, George Jackson would be murdered by prison guards while attempting to escape San Quentin prison.
For 600 years, Indigenous and African resistance on Turtle Island has endured, Revolutionaries such as Jonathan P. Jackson show us a selfless commitment to liberation and a revolutionary stance to learn from. Those that struggled in the past, allow us to advance with an even greater way forward for the liberation of all Colonized people.
