November 25th: Day of Action to Free Oso Blanco

One small way to stand against the ongoing genocide of indigenous people celebrated in u.s.-occupied Native land on November 26th* is to stand with natives who are held captive by the u.s. without the consent of the sovereign nations to which they belong.

One opportunity is the case of Oso Blanco aka Byron Chubbuck, a Cherokee sovereign citizen of Cherokee, Choctaw, and Celtic ancestry held by the u.s., without Cherokee consent, on charges trumped up by the armed career criminal act (ACCA), a part of which was struck down by the us. supreme court as “unconstitutionally vague.”
 

Things to Do . .

1) Make a small donation to Mr. Chubbuck’s legal fund at freeosoblanco.blogspot.com so that he can challenge his draconian and unjust sentence.

2) Organize a small fundraising event soon if you can–even if it is you and two friends!

3) Spread the word about this call and your event on social media hashtag #FreeOsoBlanco!

4) Find other opportunities to support indigenous self determination where you live and elsewhere!

Call-in today Wed 12/18!

Email: LEE/ExecAssistant@bop.gov
Phone: 276-546-0150
Fax: 276-546-9115

Mid Atlantic Regional Office:

Fax: 301-317-3119

When you call & email let them know that Byron Shane Chubbuck
#07909-051 has a documented history of chronic, severe illness (Hep C, and
an undiagnosed mass that appeared in his liver a few months ago). His
several sick calls have been ignored, despite constant and debilitating
leg, side and back pain. He needs a proper ultrasound of the tumor, and
ongoing medical attention.

He is currently in SHU (Administrative Segregation/Solitary Confinement)
because a drawing of a Cherokee burial mound was found in his cell, and he
was accused by guards of having an “escape tool.” We demand he be released
from SHU, and the charges dismissed. He was not trying to escape, and SHU
is no place for a sick prisoner.

Let the MA regional office know that USP Lee has been denying Byron Shane Chubbuck #07909-051 medical attention.  They are ignoring his sick calls and a chronic liver illness patient should not be in administrative segregation. We demand that USP Lee get him the medical attention he needs, and stop harassing this sick prisoner.

Please leave comments below about how the call goes or any responses you receive!

Byron Shane Chubbuck is a wolf clan Cherokee/Choctaw raised in New Mexico,
his Indian name is Oso Blanco and he became known by the authorities as
“Robin the Hood” after the FBI and local gang unit APD officers learned
that Oso Blanco was robbing banks to send thousands of dollars with of
supplies to the Zapatista Rebels of Chiapas on a regular basis during 1998
and 1999.

Chubbuck is serving 80 years for bank robbery, aggravated assault on the
FBI, escape and firearms charges. Byron engaged federal agents in a gun
battle on August 13th 1999 at his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Although Chubbuck escaped, he was arrested later that day and sentenced to
time in New Mexico’s state Penitentiary. After serving just over a year in
New Mexico, he escaped from a prison transport van and almost immediately
began robbing banks. He was recaptured a short time later. Byron never
used a gun in any bank robbery, but he has a long history of living by the
gun and will not hesitate to use it on the agents of repression or the
occupiers of Aztlan whom force false laws on the true people of this land.

Quote from Oso “I am still able to hold my head up high and feel the
gratification for my work in a world where money, power and destructive
industries are regarded far above humanity, indigenous and impoverished
peoples and cultures. I cannot help that I got deeply into my work….”
