All proceeds will go to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz
Russell MAROON Shoatz is a U.S. Political Prisoner, former Black Panther, author & intellectual who has been imprisoned in solitary confinement for more than 22 consecutive years (and 28 of the past 30 years). This year, he will be turning 70 years old and continues to be arbitrarily tortured in solitary confinement. This is an outrage!
On April 8, 2013, Pennsylvania prison officials had 30 days to release Maroon from solitary confinement.
On April 15, the National Campaign to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz announced that Dept. of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel personally ordered his transfer to SCI Mahanoy to remove him from solitary.
On May 8, lawyers for Russell Maroon Shoatz filed a lawsuit against Pennsylvania Dept. of Corrections officials, demanding an end to this injustice.
For this year’s RnB annual anti-July 4th BBQ, we hope to celebrate Maroon’s RELEASE into general population OR we put the pressure on!!
Join us for a festive evening of friendship, food, & righteous fury, as we honor MAROON THE IMPLACABLE with musical performances & spoken word in a community of compassion and revolutionary love!
Directions: 2, 3 trains to Grand Army Plaza, walk down Flatbush to Park Place and make a right (1 1/2 blocks), or Q Train to 7th Avenue, cross Flatbush and walk along Park Place until you get to #309.
