    As'salaamu wa'alaikum and Peace,

    http://www.freeimamjamil.com/

    Insha'Allah please forward this information on, there will be a rally held for Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown (Civil Right activist, who was once the head of SNCC and a Minister within the Black Panther Party for Self Defense). Imam Jamil Al-Amin has been the victim of grave injustice by a system that never forgets its adversaries! If you are not familiar with who Imam Jamil/ H. Rap Brown is, look him up and do your research on his fight against injustice, before and after Islam. Research the case that landed him in maxim security prison. Please check out the website, www.freeImamjamil.com, for updates and news about the case.

    Insha'Allah it is my intention to attend this event and I ask others to do the same! I pray that Allah watches over and protect Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, his family and his community; and that he raises up strong leaders of faith, from this Ummah, to continue the fight against injustice, Ameen!

    Ma salaama wa fee ameena'lilah

    March 2012 Mobilization for Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin

    Friday, March 16, 2012, will mark 12 years since the tragedy unfolded on the West End of Atlanta that would end up engulfing three families. As a result of that tragedy (and the then unknown conspiracies leading up to it) Imam Jamil, the defendant in a state case, is now a federal prisoner incarcerated in the only supermax prison in the United States of America (Florence, Colorado). After he was sentenced to LIFE, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution predicted in a widely read editorial that he would die in
    prison, "alone" and "forgotten."

    .......Of course I would sister noor100, without a doubt. However, its doubtful sister, I'm scheduled to travel the week prior, which would make it difficult for me to attend that function also.


    Peace In,

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Great video sister noor100, thanks for sharing this. The Like It Is show is one of my favorites. But the more I think about H. Rap Brown, Jamil Abdullah Al-amin, and all he's done for our community, his incarceration should be a bigger concern to us than what it is; especially among younger blacks.




    Peace In,

    Assalaamu Alaikum (Greetings of Peace):

    This is the official press release for this Monday's mobilization for Imam Jamil. Please pass on.

    El-Hajj Mauri' Saalakhan
    -------------------------



    A DAY OF ACTION” (Public Rally) for Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin
    Monday, March 19, 2012, at the Georgia State Capitol


    For Immediate Release:
    March 16, 2012
    Contact information: Heather Gray
    404 234 4630 - [email protected]

    ATLANTA....March 16, 2012, marks the 12th anniversary of a tragedy that affected three families and an entire community. It was on March 16, 2000, at around 10 PM at night, that two Fulton County Sheriff Deputies got into a gunfight with an assailant that left one deputy dead and the other seriously injured. Jamil Al-Amin (the former H. Rap Brown), the accused assailant (who has consistently maintained his innocence), was arrested days later in White Hall (AL), and charged with first degree murder and assault.

    After a deeply flawed trial that resulted in Al-Amin receiving a life sentence, the leader of the West End Muslim community was confined to Georgia’s maximum security prison in Reidsville. In 2007 Al-Amin was arbitrarily deemed a “security risk” - despite having no serious infractions within the institution – and was moved from state custody into federal custody, and assigned to the federal admax facility (aka, “supermax prison”) in Florence, Colorado - 1,400 miles away from his family and attorneys.

    This abrupt move, which was made without even informing his family, led to a number of pressing questions, beginning with the federal government's complicity in his case. It raised the question of whether Al-Amin was being punished because he is a prominent Muslim, and also begged the question of whether his civil rights past - principally through the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the 1960's - and his ongoing demands and activism for civil and human rights in the U.S. may have also factored into the equation?

    It should also be noted that just prior to his abrupt move to Florence, Colorado, in 2007, Muslims in Georgia's prisons had asked that he serve as the Imam for Muslim prisoners throughout the State. This was without Al-Amin's prompting, and was a clear acknowledgement of the broad based respect for him and his leadership.

    Al-Amin’s case was, and is, a local case. There were no federal charges, conviction, or sentences. In spite of this, the State of Georgia chose to move him out of Georgia's prison population into a high-cost federal institution at Georgia taxpayer’s expense! The conditions in the prison are extraordinarily punitive, including 24-hour isolation in an underground facility with no human contact. (Notwithstanding the moral considerations, the material cost of such punishment is un-called for.)

    On Monday, March 19, 2012, at 3 PM, there will be a demonstration in front of the Georgia State Capitol - designated as a "Day of Action in Support of Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin" - to demand that “Imam Jamil” (as he is commonly known) be returned to Georgia state custody, where he rightfully belongs, until such time that he can receive a new trial, a fair trial, with all of the relevant and available evidence allowed to come into the proceedings.

    The speakers for Monday’s press conference will be (in alphabetical order):

    Michael Bond (City Councilman - Atlanta)
    Ramsey Clark (a former US Attorney General – New York)
    Connie Curry (a veteran activist, and SNCC alumni - Atlanta)
    Pastor Kenneth Glasgow (Christian clergyman)
    Heather Gray (WRFG Radio - Atlanta)
    Vincent Hardin (distinguished visiting scholar, Morehouse College)
    Diane Mathiewitz (International Action Center - Atlanta)
    Min. Akbar Muhammad ( International Representative, Nation of Islam)
    Imam Furqan Muhammad (a highly regarded Muslim chaplain - Atlanta)
    Abdul Muhayman (Rep. for The Community Masjid - West End)
    Nan Orrock (State Senator, District 36, Atlanta)
    Imam Farid W. Rassool (Masjid As-Sabiqun, Chester, PA)
    Mauri' Saalakhan (The Peace Thru Justice Foundation – Washington, DC)
    Imam Zaid Shakir (a nationally known, California-based Islamic scholar)
    Aaron Ward (District Director for Congressman John Lewis, D-GA)


    The State Capitol is located at 206 Washington Street in Atlanta, Georgia. Additional information on this case is available at www.freeimamjamil.com .
