Support Political prisoner Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin


On September 3rd Jericho Amnesty Movement received a call from a Political Prisoner at USP Canaan concerning Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin. Imam Jamil is in serious need of medical attention. His jaw is swollen to at least twice its normal size, and he is experiencing a lot of pain.


According to his family it is clear that he needed to remain in a medical facility. In addition to his having smoldering multiple myeloma, he has Sjogren’s syndrome, which is another auto immune condition.


The Imam’s family appreciates our continued support and dissemination of information.  He has put in a request for a transfer to a warmer climate which he feels may help his condition.  In addition, he hopes to be closer to his attorneys and family members.


His family is considering filing a legal action concerning his condition and lack of medical care, but in the meanwhile they ask that we continue to keep him in our discussions. 


Please call or fax USP Caaan and ask, demand, that Imam Jamil be given immediate adequate medical attention.

MUMIA ALERT ! Phone Calls Needed Now – September 8, 2015

    September 7, 2015. Two days ago, prison staff boxed-up all Mumia’s personal effects from his cell while he was in the prison infirmary trying to recover from the prison’s medical malfeasance and neglect that nearly killed him. The handling of prison property in the absence of a prisoner is a violation of prison procedures. After signing the forms required when prisoner property is placed in storage, Mumia asked if he was about to be moved to a different facility, since the boxing up of a prisoner’s property usually precedes a transfer. An officer assured him that he would not be transferred; but this all seemed really strange to Mumia.
A retaliatory transfer to some other prison would be a new blow against Mumia’s health, and would steep him and his family in greater fear and uncertainty.
Why do we sense retaliation? Because Mumia’s attorneys have filed a lawsuit charging the PA Department of Corrections with medical neglect, i.e. with failure to diagnose his disease in a timely way and with continuing to deny him adequate treatment of his debilitating and life-threatening Hepatitis C condition. The PA Department of Corrections was set to respond to the lawsuit this Thursday in court. A transfer to another prison, without giving him fully professional healthcare, would be retaliatory. Indeed it would be an attack Mumia, another way for his enemies to see him dead.We must stop any retaliatory transfer. No transfer of Mumia should take place that does not take him to a quality medical center for cure of his very serious, but treatable, Hepatitis C condition. Keep up the fight for Mumia’s life!
CALL the PA Department of Corrections and Mumia’s prison – starting now. Here’s the message:

Stop Any Retaliatory Transfer!
Treat-to-Cure Mumia’s Hepatitis C Now!
Phone in both of these demands to –
 John Wetzel, Secretary of Corrections, Pennsylvania
Phone: (717) 728-2573
John Kerestes, Superintendent, SCI-Mahanoy prison
Phone: (570) 773-2158
