NYC – 18 Dec – Letter-writing Dinner for Jamil Al-Amin

Jamil Al-AminIt’s supper time again, and we’re back at CAGE for our every-other-week Political Prisoner Letter Writing Dinner. Of course it’s no surprise that in NYC, as with everywhere, cops continue to lie, kill, and steal. When they aren’t plotting ways to kidnap, rape and eat women, they’re arresting socially conscious musicians, claiming they are known members of armed revolutionary formations. It is with this critical eye on police misconduct and deception that we host this week’s dinner.

This Tuesday’s dinner will focus on Imam Jamil Al-Amin, a long time community leader and organizer, falsely imprisoned for supposedly killing a sheriff’s deputy in Georgia.

Ten years ago, Imam Jamil Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown, was falsely convicted and sentenced to life in Georgia. When black, white, and brown prisoners, Muslim and non-Muslim Georgia inmates openly acknowledged him as a leader and political prisoner, with public pressure mounting for a new trial and his removal from solitary, Georgia officials transferred him in the dead of night to the man-made supermax hell of Florence, Colorado– a federal prison some say is worse than Bagram or Guantanamo.

If for some insane reason you can’t make it out, but still want to support Jamil Al-Amin, you can write to him at:
