whether intended or not, refrencing "redneck" in a support poster for those wrongly imprisoned in the current green scare is a completly irrelovent connection. The term "redneck" is seen to many as a classist and racist statement against white americans living in poverty. Please do not connect the ideals of those fighting against the prison system and the destruction the earth to a term that is prejedice and offensive.

"redneck" is often in some circles thought to come from the socialist and workers movements that once wore red bandanas in the 1930s US. Since the Amerikan fascists have used it as a term for ridiclule and some of us have realized that a biocentered approach is needed then several of use have "recaptured" and "eco friendly" it to "greenecks". So yes you are right that it has a classist slander, but greenneck is to recapture what we have lost in the struggle for human dignity, ecological awareness and sustainablitity.
