PA Hospital still holds African baby hostage-forced morphine “treatment” continues! InPDUM/Black is Back Coalition calls for Jan 11 demonstration!

Philadelphia, PA—On Friday, January 11 from 11:30-1:30pm, the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) will join forces with the Black is Back Coalition and its Healthcare Committee to hold a demonstration outside of Pennsylvania Hospital.
 
The demonstration will apply more pressure on Pennsylvania Hospital regarding the case of Baby Dillen Nelson.
 
Last week, the International Peoples Democratic Uhuru Movement reported on the case of Jade Nelson and her newborn son Dillen. The case involves Pennsylvania Hospital injecting lethal amounts of morphine into Baby Dillen, against the family’s permission, for the past several days.
 
 
This morphine “treatment” has been forced on Dillen. Since first hearing of Baby Dillen’s case, InPDUM immediately sprung into action, calling for an international call-in to PA Hospital.
 
InPDUM members and supporters from around the world have been calling—having a clear impact on the confidence of the criminals who are running PA Hospital.
 
Despite the effectiveness of our calls so far, Pennsylvania Hospital continues its attack on Jade Nelson, her son Dillen and her entire family.
 
The hospital uses armed security guards to follow Jade and her mother’s every move.
 
Despite talks between the family and chief medical officer, Daniel Feinberg, and patient and guest services supervisor, Katie Buek, the hospital still refuses to allow Jade's family to visit.
 
Not even Dillen's father can visit. He is mortified as he hasn't seen his newborn baby in several days.
 
The hospital continues to refuse to release Dillen to another hospital and has continued the aggressive and unnecessary injection of a poisonous, highly addictive opiod to the infant against his mother's wishes.
 
As a result, the family has obtained legal counsel in an effort to save Dillen's life.
 
Despite legal representation, the hospital has not curbed its aggressive behavior toward Jade and her family.
 
This should be a time of great happiness and joy, but Pennsylvania hospital has created a nightmare for this family.
 
Call to Action
 
In support of the struggle to save Baby Dillen, InPDUM is calling on everyone to do the following:

Also, feel free to email the family and pledge your support of their effort to save this beautiful baby boy.
