Save Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin's Life
The Last of a Dying Revolutionary Breed
[Monochrome newspaper clipping of Imam Jamil.]

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of great challenge and controversy."
—Dr. M.L.K. Jr.

Last night during an intense political dialogue with a local comrade who is a very committed activist here in Indiana, he informed m that Imam Jamil Abdulla Al-Amin, prisoner of war, formerly known to the revolutionary community inside United States' boarders as H. Rap Brown, has been diagnosed with cancer.

Like Mumia abu Jamal, he too is a long standing servant of his people. Now he is sick and in need of medical help. The United States industrial prison complex is systematically and institutionally engaged in intentional medical neglect and a mountain of human and civil rights violations.

The plan here is absolutely clear. The U.S. government court judges and prosecutors have been sending our comrades to these prison plantations on manufactured charges. Charges framed to obtain maximum prison sentences. Hoping that political prisoners who enter these plantations, who are loved by the people, will remain inside for decades, aging to be old men. But if lucky, they're counting on us dying on the plantation grounds.

I am only one man with 30 years inside these plantations myself with limited resources and outside support. I am calling on all activist organizations, Black Lives Matters groups, human/civil rights organizations to stand up and demand that our elder statesman be given the immediate medical treatment and attention he needs. We have to engage in a massive or collective support movement in order to display the power of the people.

Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin has an action network that you can contact to join in this fight. See imamajamilactionnetwork.weebly.com

All power to the people. Save Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin's life now.

Indiana political prisoner,
Bro. Khalfani Malik Khaldun
Wabash Valley Correctional Facility
