Mumia Abu-Jamal & jailhouse lawyers
Photos from the London support action for prisoner hunger strikers and Trayvon Martin, 31 July, outside the US Embassy.
Two of the biggest protests of recent years are taking place right now!
- A national mobilization for justice for Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Black teenager racially profiled, tracked and killed by George Zimmerman in Florida, and his killer found not guilty. A 21st century lynching. Every 28 hours a Black person in the US is killed by law enforcement, security guards or vigilantes.
Russell Maroon Shoats (#AF-3855), a 68-year-old prisoner held at the State Correctional Institution (SCI) Greene in southwestern Pennsylvania, has been kept in solitary confinement for more than 21 years. He has been unable to hold his children or grandchildren or interact with others in a humane setting during this time, despite not having violated prison rules in two decades.
