BK/NY – Tuesday, December 9th – Letter-Writing Dinner For Herman Bell and Jalil Muntaqim

WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
WHEN: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
WHERE: The Base1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)

COST: Free
bell_muntaqim_2014With the public eye turned to Ferguson, police brutality, and murder;  and in response rebels shutting down transportation infrastructure across the country– cops are shook.  So it’s only right that NYC ABC heads back to The Base for our every-other-week Political Prisoner Letter Writing Dinner– with a focus on two comrades targeted by the state and its racist pigs for struggling for collective liberation.

This week we will be watching videos of a couple of short interviews with, and writing to, Herman Bell & Jalil Muntaqim.

Herman Bell is a former Black Panther imprisoned for the murder of a police officer in New York and is serving 25 years to life in prison.

In 1971, Herman went underground because of relentless FBI attacks on the Black Panther Party. While underground, Herman was captured and extradited to New York on charges of having killed two New York City police officers. No witnesses were able to put Herman at the scene of the crime. The first trial ended in a hung jury and he was convicted at his second trial and given 25 years to life. For more information, make sure to visit freehermanbell.org.

Jalil Muntaqim is a former Black Panther who, in 1971, was arrested in California with Albert “Nuh” Washington and Herman Bell and ultimately convicted for the killing of two New York City cops. In 1974, Muntaqim was convicted and received a prison term of twenty-five years to life.

Now, 30 years after the conviction, Jalil is preparing an Article 78 petition to the Court. He is also still requesting folks call Tina Stanford, Commissioner of the Board of Parole, and urge her to reverse Jalil’s most recent parole denial due to erroneous information in the parole folder: the COMPAS Report and their receipt and review of racist letters opposing his release. Jalil anticipates that, if several people make these calls, perhaps the parole board will reverse the denial and order a new hearing. We ask that you all make phone calls to Tina Stanford’s office (518.473.9400) and urge a decision in Jalil’s administrative appeal. More information at freejalil.com

We expect to see you on Tuesday. If you can’t make it, please take the time to write a letter to Herman and Jalil:
