COMMUNITY REPORT AND UPDATE : FEBRUARY/MARCH 2008

IMAM JAMIL AL-AMIN ( the former H. Rap 
Brown)  approaches eighth year of Political 
Internment. A conspicuous STOP, while driving 
while black during the SPRING ’99..., a court 
closing due to a snow storm in January 2000 and a 
bench warrant for non appearance at that court 
date.., a shooting incident and a rush to 
judgement  accusation. MARCH 16, 2000, an unjust 
arrest.., a forced conviction and the  inhumane 
sentence of LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE  plus thirty five years in MARCH 2002.

After being forced to serve five and a half years 
in Administrative Segregation.( 23 hour per day 
lock-down, no human contact, etc) at the State 
Prison at Reidsville, Georgia’s notorious 
K-Block, Imam Jamil Al-Amin in AUGUST 2007 was 
transferred to the MAXIMUM SECURITY FEDERAL 
PRISON at FLORENCE, COLORADO known as the SUPER 
MAX. His housing conditions remain 23-hour lock 
down, no human contact, silence, five social 
visits per month, two phone calls per month, and 
denial of all MEDIA  requests for interviews 
Although he has no contact with them he is joined 
by many other POLITICAL PRISONERS who are well 
known Muslim leaders, as well as leaders in the 
struggle for self-determination...Doctor Mutulu 
Shakur, Imam Malik Khaba (Jeff Fort), Brother 
Sekou Odinga, Larry Hoover leader of Growth and 
Discipline (the formerly the Gangster Disciples), 
Dr. Malakai Z. York to name just a few. Due to 
all these leaders representing legitimate 
“peoples struggles”  FLORENCE SUPER MAX is being 
referred to as the state-side GUANTANAMO.

IMAM JAMIL AL-AMIN’s transfer into federal 
custody and to the SUPERMAX comes on the heels 
of  some hard worked and fought for 
victories..(1) The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals 
ruled in Imam Jamil’s favor against the prison at 
Reidsville in regard to a suit filed to disallow 
them from continuing to open his legal mail.  (2) 
The ground swell of support for the Imam, 
developing into phone call ins, postal and e-mail 
write-ins bringing the offices at Reidsville 
Prison and Department of Corrections to a virtual 
standstill along with the periodic protest 
demonstrations that would cause Reidsville, the 
town and the Prison to  shutdown..

SUPPORT MUST CONTINUE    write to:

P.O. BOX 8500
