On September 3rd Jericho Amnesty Movement received a call from a Political Prisoner at USP Canaan concerning Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin. Imam Jamil is in serious need of medical attention. His jaw is swollen to at least twice its normal size, and he is experiencing a lot of pain.

According to his family it is clear that he needed to remain in a medical facility. In addition to his having smoldering multiple myeloma, he has Sjogren’s syndrome, which is another auto immune condition.

The Imam’s family appreciates our continued support and dissemination of information. He has put in a request for a transfer to a warmer climate which he feels may help his condition. In addition, he hopes to be closer to his attorneys and family members.

His family is considering filing a legal action concerning his condition and lack of medical care, but in the meanwhile they ask that we continue to keep him in our discussions.

Please call or fax USP Caaan and ask, demand, that Imam Jamil be given immediate adequate medical attention.

Stop Ongoing Harassment of Jalil Muntaqim

We received a call Friday morning from Jalil Muntaqim to advise us that his cell had been raided on Thursday, January 5th. (Attica, NY) When Jalil asked why his cell was being searched, he was told it was because “something happened in California.”

The COs confiscated pictures of the memorials for BPP members Cetewayo (Michael Tabor) and Bro. Mark Smith “Smitty” of New Jersey. Jalil received a Tier 3 ticket for possession of these photos. Of course, these photos had been sent to him by mail and had been approved in the prison mailroom.

Jalil is not in the hole. We have been told this walking ticket means they can use it against him at any time for any reason.

Jalil’s cell has been turned over five times in the last two months.

Jalil is asking people to call the Warden and Commissioner Brian Fischer to demand:

1. An end to this campaign of constant harassment

2. The return of his pictures

When you call, be sure to use Jalil’s DIN number (#77A4283) and refer to him as Anthony “Jalil” Bottom, currently at Attica.

Warden: (585) 591-2000

We would like to know what responses people receive. Please send an email to nycjericho@gmail.com or mxcc519@verizon.net to let us know.

Thank you for your help.

OPEN LETTER IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT FROM THE JERICHO AMNESTY MOVEMENT TO FREE ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS

The Jericho Amnesty Movement (JAM) is in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street Movement (OWS)!  We come to you at a time when the corporations, which run our government, place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality.  As we gather together in solidarity to express opposition to mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We want all the people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world to know that we are your allies.  We acknowledge the reality that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and that upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect our own rights, and those of our neighbors. Corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth. No true liberty is attainable when the process is determined by corporate economic forces.

Those who are imprisoned are locked up because of the same economic forces that fund Wall Street.  For example there are private prisons and ICE detention centers that are run by companies such as GEO Corporation who are funded by big banks such as Wells Fargo.  There is also a struggle to free people who are incarcerated for their political beliefs and actions and who have resisted this monstrous economic system. And it is the same economic system that locks them up. This is our struggle for u.s.- held Political Prisoners (PPs) and Prisoners of War (POWs) and invites your participation.  Continue reading
