Welcome To My World: LIFE STOLEN

Welcome To My World: LIFE STOLEN | WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF MANY CAUSES | Scoop.it

LIFE STOLEN
Today I sit, waiting in anticipation of my fate from the kidnapping two decades ago as a youth in the inner city of Los Angeles. In the clutches of the injustice, I struggle to prove my wrongful conviction as so many before me. I urge you to commit yourself to the truth and allow me to be free first in your mind and second in my life.
I the only child of a mother who waits my return so diligently. Tears swell in her eyes as I absorb them in my pain of confinement. I have come to accept that my youth has been taken however I am not willing to accept that my life too will also be taken. I will fight and must fight to ensure that justice denied will no longer be a part of my life. With the strength I receive from God, family and devoted friends I lift my eyes each morning believing in the Faith that the TRUTH will set me free. I have been here, in the belly of the beast, far too long and through the dedication of all who know I am able to be free for those moments that I hear their voice, read their mail or receive a much needed visit.
My arms outstretch this nation of kindness and request that a moment of your time will enable me to live another day with hope. My calendar is open. Would you like to take a day? If so please write and encourage me. Your thoughts are deeply appreciated and greatly needed.
By birth, not choice…Free Ase/Uno

Daughter of former Black Panther talks about her father in solitary confinement

New Video: Daughter of Russell Maroon Shoats, Held in Solitary Confinement for Nearly 30 Years
by James Ridgeway and Jean Casella
Theresa Shoats is an activist and the daughter of Russell Maroon Shoats, who was a member of the Black Panther Party and a founding member of the Black Unity Council. He is serving multiple life sentences for the 1970 murder of a Philadelphia area police officer. Now 70 years old, Shoats has spent the last 21 years in continuous solitary confinement at Pennsylvania's SCI Greene, and he did several earlier terms in solitary as well--for a total of close to 30 years in all.

More information can be found on the blog maintained by Teresa Shoats at http:// russellmaroonshoats.wordpress. com/. Solitary Watch reporter and videographer Valeria Monfrini talked with Teresa Shoats last fall.

Justice For Jalil Close Attica -- End Isolation!

Justice For Jalil Close Attica -- End Isolation! | WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF MANY CAUSES | Scoop.it

Attica ¡§Correctional¡¨ Facility,
January 23, 2012. Jalil Anthony Bottom, a former Black Panther who has
been in prison for more than 40 years, was sentenced to SIX MONTHS IN
ISOLATION (called SHU or Special Housing Unit) on charges of
¡§Unauthorized Organization¡¨ for possession of PHOTOS OF MEMORIAL
SERVICES FOR 2 FORMER BLACK PANTHERS.
We call on Governor Cuomo, the NYS Legislature, the Attorney
General¡¦s Office, and the Department of so-called ¡§Corrections¡¨:
ATTICA = ABUSE. SHUT IT DOWN!
¡§Attica has clearly been unable to cast off its violent past, and has proven, time and time again,
to be an unsafe and inhumane place for prisoners... The only possible remedy is to close
the facility.¡¨ --The Correctional Association of New York, the only prison watchdog group
allowed to investigate inside New York¡¦s prisons
ISOLATION = TORTURE. END IT!
¡§Long term solitary confinement in excess of 15 days could amount to torture and should be
banned.¡¨ -- Juan E. Mendez, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture. New York State
locks people in solitary at almost twice the national rate.
REVERSE JALIL¡¦S DISCRIMINATORY TICKET AND INCREDIBLE 6-MONTH SENTENCE.
A six-month sentence for having photos of a memorial service exposes the arbitrary and cruel
use of SHU for targeting, harassment, and abuse at the whim of prison staff & administrators.
STRIKE DOWN THE ¡§UNAUTHORIZED ORGANIZATIONS¡¨ REGULATION, written so
vaguely that it is impossible for prisoners to know how to avoid violating it, making it the basis
for suppression of ideas the prison administration disagrees with.
