Revolutionary Greetings Comrades! Today is Tuesday, April 7th, 2020. This morning the entire prison population here at USP Pollock was screened for Covid-19 and issued protective Masks! The Registered Nurse who was part of the screening team was named Pennison. I asked Mr. Pennison Two Important questions:
#1.) Are there any Confirmed Cases of Covid-19 on the entire Federal Correctional Complex here at Pollock?
He answered: ”No”
#2.) Have there been any Suspected Cases of Covid-19 on the Complex??
His answer was: ”Yes, but they have been ruled out.”
Be advised that this morning a prisoner on my Housing Unit claimed to have Covid-19 symptoms! He has been placed in quarantine. Please Pray for the Best!
The Fcc-complex at Pollock includes a Satelite Camp, a Medium Facility and a U.S. Penitentiary where I am currently Housed.
I Must take this opportunity to issue a National Call for Action!!! Now!!!
I want all of you to consider the lives of our long suffering elderly and infirm Freeom Fighters and Servants of the People who have languished in these Federal and State Prisons for Decades!!
Many of our respected elders are still housed at High Security Facilities despite excellent behavior and clear disciplinary records. They are extremely vulnerable to contracting the Coronal virus!!
These elderly and vulnerable prisoners don’t have to die from Covid -19 while in Federal or State custody!
THEY MUST BE FREED NOW!!! Help Me do this!!
Allow me to take this time to name just a few of our respected elders. WITH YOUR COLLECTIVE SOLIDARITY, MUTUAL AID, AND DIRECT ACTION ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND OTHER MEANS WE CAN FREE OUR IMPRISONED COMRADES NOW!!
Remember! May 7th is Approaching Fast!!
FREE OUR ELDERS!!!
Sundiata Acoli, Leonard Peltier, Imam Jamil Al-Amin, Dr. Mutulu Shakur, Veronzo Bowers, Larry Hoover, and Jeffrey Fort aka King Malik!
These are just a few of the Elders in Federal Prison whom I am requesting your help with Freeing. There are numerous prisoners trapped in State Prisons across the Nation who deserve our support!!
Jalil Muntaqim, and David Gilbert both in New York!
Sitawa Nantambu Jamaa, Ruchell ‘Cinque’ Magee, Bobby Dixon, Chip Fitzgerald, Michael Zaharibu Dorrough, and James Baridi Williamson—-ALL OF THEM IN CALIFORNIA!!
Kenny ‘Zulu’ Whitmore in Louisiana!!
and last but certainly not least our shining Princes—MUMIA ABU JAMAL AND RUSSELL “MAROON’ SHOATZ BOTH IN PENNSYLVANIA!!
SISTERS AND BROTHERS!! We Must fight hard for the Freedom, Health, and the Lives of our Incarcerated Elders Now!! On May 7th we must Add this Demand to our North Carolina Grievance Campaign BUT WE CAN’T WAIT TO ACT!!! THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW NOT TOMORROW!!!
