Here is a request from Jalil Muntaqim as we begin his parole campaign for his hearing in June 2016.
Jalil would like people to contact Tavis Smiley and request that he interview Ward Churchill about Jalil’s book Escaping the Prism. firstname.lastname@example.org and www.facebook.com/TavisTalks
He would also like people to contact Amy Goodman and request that she interview Jalil at Attica: 212-432-9090 www.democracynow/contact and www.facebook.com/AmyGoodman.DemocracyNow/
Jalil will be going to the Parole Board once again in June of 2016, and he would like to form our own media campaign to counteract the PBA propaganda around his case.
Of course, he is officially known as Anthony Bottom #77A4283, so that should be included when contacting Tavis Smiley and Amy Goodman.
NEW POEM BY POW JALIL MUNTAQIM
Nestled in the upstate New York rural
Marching two by two, 40 strong,
The Administration is colorless,
1863 The Emancipation Proclamation
Banning of books keeping in
1865 The 13th Amendment Ends Chattel
Solitary confinement, brutality
Do Black Lives Matter?
1868 The 14th Amendment gave
No life skills education or training,
Paroled to a community, if paroled,
1965 Voters Rights Act, but today
Right here in Attica.
Calling for Boycotts, Divestments
“We will not be driven like beasts,
Jalil A. Muntaqim
