King Blaze, ¡Presente!

June 6, 2012

Blaze with AIM Prisoner of War, Leonard Peltier at USP Leavenworth, 2004

From Denver Anarchist Black Cross

We recently received news that a dear comrade and revolutionary Latin King, Gabriel Concepcion, AKA King Blaze, passed away in February. Due to internet email glitches, the news is very late in getting to us.

Blaze was a former prisoner and long time street member of the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation (ALKQN). Since his imprisonment in the mid 90′s, Blaze became a devout revolutionary. He dedicated his life to trying to transform the ALKQN into a street level revolutionary organization. He was released from prison in 2007, and became involved with organizing back in his hometown of the Bronx in New York City. He passed away at his mother’s home on February 25, 2012.

The grief of this loss is very overwhelming, as this news very recently reached us. A longer writing will surely come. But for now, we invite you to read two articles about Blaze’s work with the former Allied Resistance Network, a prisoner revolutionary organization active from 2003-2009.

In love and solidarity! Remember our dead and fight like hell for the living!
King Blaze, ¡Presente!
