We are taking this day to embrace and hold dear to our hearts the 
dedication of Hugo "Yogi Bear" Lyon Antonio Pinell (March 10, 1944 - 
August 12, 2015), beloved former San Quentin 6 political prisoner, who 
dedicated his life to becoming a revolutionary, and was the embodiment 
of the transformation into the New Man.

“Comrade George Jackson and Comrade Hugo Pinell, one Black and one 
Latino, were the living examples of the unity that can and must exist 
among the prisoner class.” - “The Black Panther Party and Hugo Pinell,” 
Nov. 29, 1971 edition of The Black Panther, Courtesy Billy X Jennings, 
ItsAboutTimeBPP.com, SF BayView, August 14, 2015.

Hugo "Yogi" Pinell and George Jackson organized for racial unity in 
prison, laying the foundation for the CA prisoners’ August 12, 2012 
Agreement to End Hostilities 
between ethnic groups, which made possible the CA Prisoner Hunger Strike 
of 2013 by over 30,000 CA prisoners and 100's more nationwide. This 
helped lead to the historic 2015 settlement ending indefinite solitary 
confinement in CA 
Hugo was assassinated on the 3-year anniversary of the Agreement to End 

Yogi was the person held longest in solitary confinement in the U.S., in 
solitary in California 45 years and 10 months.
