We have been informed by Imam Jamil (H. Rap Brown) that he is suffering from cataracts and is being denied immediate treatment to relieve him of this burden. Imam Jamil is 75 years old and has been incarcerated for going on 20 years even though the facts of his case prove his innocence.
Imam Jamil, 73, has suffered imprisonment for over 16 years – 12 years in solitary confinement, for no reason. Seven of those years were in the “supermax” federal prison in Florence, Colorado. While in that Administrative Maximum Facility, he had no human contact, no fresh air, nor sunlight. Now that Imam Jamil has been diagnosed with an incurable cancer and the prison has proven unable to provide medical care, please release him to Humanitarian Parole.
Please join The National Day of Action to Exonerate and Free Imam Jamil Al-Amin on Friday, Sept. 16, 2016, hosted by the Oakland Islamic Community Center in association with Imam Jamil Action Network. The National Day of Action will comprise a series of nationwide initiatives designed to educate some and re-acquaint others on who Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin is, where he is, and how he got where he is.
According to an email from a political prisoner at USP Canaan, the federal prison where Imam Jamil (H. Rap Brown) is held, the imam's jaw is swollen to at least twice its normal size, and he is in a lot of pain. A family member had confirmed the bad news. Please call or fax USP Canaan and ask – demand – that Imam Jamil be given immediate adequate medical attention. The phone number is 570-488-8000.
