PLEASE EXCUSE CROSS-POSTS & PLEASE POST WIDELY

On Monday October 30, 2006 guards at SCI Greene entered the cell of Russell
Maroon Shoatz, searched the cell and confiscated all of his possessions
except his ink pen and writing paper. Maroon was told that these actions
were taken against him, not because of any wrongdoing on his part, but
because prison officials see US political prisoners as "the terrorists of
the new millennium" and are plan to invoke anti-terrorism measures against
them.

According to elder Maroon, this abuse against him is likely to be just the
beginning of a larger pattern of intensified abuse against pp/POWs unless
there is an immediate response from the people, letting PA government and
prison officials know that their behavior is unacceptable and will not be
tolerated.

Maroon spoke with family members around 7:30 on Thursday, November 02, 2006.
He is calling for all supporters to contact Jeffery Beard and demand the
immediate return of his possessions. He would also like supporters to
contact Governor Rendell, the warden at SCI Greene and the director of PA
Prisons.

Cards and letters of support directly to Maroon are also a big help, as they
remind the prison officials of how beloved Maroon is by his friends and
supporters and remind him that he is not forgotten.
