LET'S BRING THE VIRGIN ISLANDS THREE
HOME WHERE THEY BELONG!

Phase 2 of the Clemency Campaign for the VI3 Starting Now!

Please pass on to all respective list serves - members, supporters, family and friends!

The campaign to free the Virgin Island 3, who have been locked up for 46 years, is kicking into high gear. Like many aging prisoners, they are experiencing increasing health problems and pose NO RISK to the society they’ve been locked away from for nearly half a century.

AS-SALAAMU 'ALAYKUM!

DEAR COMRADES:

IMMEDIATE PERSONAL ACTION REQUIRED. TIME SENSITIVE. GOVERNOR MAPP OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS DID NOT WIN THE ELECTION AND HE WILL BE LEAVING OFFICE AT THE END OF THE YEAR. I WAS INFORMED THAT GOV. MAPPS' OFFICE AND HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL AND PARDONING ATTORNEY WILL BE HOLDING A FINAL MEETING NEXT THURSDAY TO DECIDE WHO THEY WILL PARDON!

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE ANARCHIST BLACK CROSS. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING THIS STRATEGY TOGETHER. EVERYONE HAS TO MAKE THESE CALLS!

JIHAD

From: Philly ABC <phillyabc@riseup.net>

This is the urgent phase 2 of the clemency campaign for the Virgin Island 3 starting now for the next few weeks (https://phillyabc.wordpress.com/vi3-campaign/):

*Email the Executive Assistant to the Governor with why you support clemency for Warren Ballentine, Beaumont Gereau, Meral Smith: carmen.potter@go.vi.gov

You can also call and email Ms. Telsalda Josiah at 340-773-1404 or telsalda.josiah@go.vi.gov.

*Call the officials in charge of reviewing the commutation applications as much and as often as possible to express support for their clemency:

Governor Mapp’s Office: (340) 774-0001
Lt. Governor Potter’s Office: (340) 774-2991
Attorney General Claude Walker: (340) 773-0295
Legal Counsel E. Henderson: (340) 712-2212

Leave messages letting them know you support the commutation applications for Warren Ballentine, Beaumont Gereau and Meral Smith.

A few talking points if desired, but feel free to keep it short and sweet:

• After 46 years of incarceration, these men are in seriously ailing health and are extremely unlikely to re-offend… Warren alone is on 6 different types of medication after a massive heart attack a year ago. Hanif is in need of expensive diagnostic testing on his liver. All of these health issues would be taken care of and paid for by supporters if released from prison.

• It is costing the state a TON of money to continue to house them and pay for medical care.

Keep up the contact until further notice!

If you did not have a chance to write and mail a letter sooner, there is still time!

Follow the template at

Keep up the pressure until their sentences are commuted!

When you can, drop one or all of the Virgin Island 3 a note telling them about the actions you took on their behalf.

An Urgent Call to Support Black Revolutionary
Political Prisoner of Conscience Kevin Rashid Johnson!!

Rashid is a revolutionary who risks his life on a continual basis to support other prisoners and expose the situation in america’s dungeons. He needs us to stand up for him – our doing so is his best protection. Please take a moment of your time to call or email the officials above!

FOR UPDATES CHECK OUT RASHID’S WEBSITE AT RASHIDMOD.COM

you can also hear a recent interview with Rashid on Final Straw podcast here: https://thefinalstrawradio.noblogs.org/post/tag/kevin-rashid-johnson/

IMPORTANT UPDATE: VADOC has transferred Rashid yet again, first back to Sussex 1 State Prison, and then from there to Indiana, where he is currently being held at the Reception-Diagnostic Center in Plainfield. He is currently in a cell with no property. He has no extra underwear to change into. The cell is, of course, dirty. He’s in solitary confinement. They are refusing him his stationary and stamps, so he can’t write out. We will provide updates as we receive more information.
