Bin-Wahad along with other Clayton County community leaders have formed a group to address the violence he suffered at the hands of deputies and the violence the community suffers at the hands of officers. It was recently discovered that Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and the NAACP legal defense arm met with the county Sherriff behind the communities back and held a secret meeting without informing members of the community. We will talk to Dhoruba Bin-Wahad or a member from his camp tonight.
Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio joins us for her second appearance on Political Prisoner Radio. She is most responsible for distributing the commentaries of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. She will share information concerning political prisoner Kevin Rashid Johnson. Johnson is the Minister of Defense of a prison chapter of the New Afrikan Black Panther Party, has been held in solitary confinement for decades, and is currently experiencing a medical emergency.
In addition, before we close out the program, we will speak with New York Jericho Chair Anne Lamb and political prisoner advocate Jenn Murnam. They will provide us updates on the parole situation of political prisoners Seth Hayes, Jalil Muntaquim, and Sekou Kambui.
We will hold a moment of silence in recognition of Yuri Kochiyama, the Japanese-American activist who was a victim of America’s concentration camps during WWII. She would become a life long activist and was close to the Black liberation movement while living in public housing in New York. It was there that she met Malcolm X. She was present when Malcolm was assassinated in the Audubon Ballroom and held his head in her lap as he lay dying from his gun shot wounds.
