From Unicorn Riot - July 24, 2016 https://denverabc.wordpress.com/2016/07/24/sekou-kambui-life-after-47-years-as-a-political-prisoner/ Denver, CO – It has been two years since Sekou Kambui was released from the Alabama prison system after spending 47 years of his life incarcerated. He and fellow Human Rights activist Audri Scott Williams spoke in Denver on Thursday, July 14th, 2016 at an event hosted by Denver Anarchist Black Cross about his life after prison and their current collective work. During his teenage years in the 1960s, Sekou participated in the Civil Rights movement through mobilizing fellow youth in Alabama and providing security for meetings of the Southern Christian Leadership Council (SCLC), Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) and the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).
Lamont Banks, Cliff Stewart, and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Lamont, Cliff and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" and what happens when justice miscarries against our American citizens. Our Special Guests for tonight's show are Ex-Correctional Officers Robin K. Miller and Gary York. Both will be sharing their first-hand experiences and accounts of Abuse Behind Prison Walls in America! A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

A little-known Afghan prisoner has been refused clearance to leave Guantánamo Bay, despite an apparent case of mistaken identity by the U.S. government. Guantánamo's Periodic Review Board (PRB) ruled this week that Haroon Gul, 33, must continue to be detained indefinitely without charge or trial because his plan for what he would do post-release was insufficient. The Board also seemed unimpressed by Mr. Gul's insistence that the government's allegations against him are false.

"You may wonder what my take is of the (most recent) police killings in Minnesota and Baton Rouge and of the five police that were killed and six wounded in Dallas. These events, at least the killing of unarmed civilians, are such common occurrences nowadays til talk about them seem unending. What I find most striking about this is that the authorities, i.e., the police, are so condemnatory of violent acts in our society and yet they commit the most violence. They beat, shoot and kill citizens with impunity. To become a policeman imagine having to take a vow to never commit any act of physical violence on citizens. In truth, they have the power and resources if necessary to restrain or subdue somebody. Their “perks” would be gone: no guns, no intimidation, no beating, no shooting and killing of civilians. Therein would lie their worthiness, test of courage, willingness to serve and show genuine respect to the citizenry.
On July 14, 2016, AJC reported in a press release that Associate Warden Johns allegedly threatened to throw inmates into solitary confinement if they simply greeted a loved one or a friend that was not on the inmates visiting list. "When AJC contacted Director Kane's office as well as the Regional office, we were told that putting an inmate into solitary confinement for greeting someone is a violation of BOP policy and stated they would look into it," says Banks. "AJC was told that Johns denied making the threat even though numerous sources confirm he did so in the presence of over 200 people," adds Banks.
