Imam Jamil Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown is an internationally recognized political prisoner.
A former member of SNCC personally responsible for cranking up the early and mid-1960s organizng drives in Alabama, and longtime community leader and iman on the west end of Atlanta, he has lived an exemplary life in struggle for the betterment of of humanity. He must not be murdered in prison.
The Imam Jamil Action Network, Jericho Movement and other concerned individuals join in demanding immediate adequate medical attention for Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown.
On Sept. 3, 2015, the Jericho Movement received an email from a political prisoner at U.S. Penitentiary Canaan, a high security prison in Waymart, Penn., concerning Imam Jamil. The sender said that the imam was in serious need of medical attention.
His jaw was swollen to at least twice its normal size, and he is in a lot of pain. We were told that the institution had been on lockdown for two weeks, which is why no word had gotten out earlier.
A family member was later able to speak with Imam Jamil and confirms the information. Someone from the Jericho Medical Committee will contact the prison clinical director to see what, if any, medical info can be gotten from the institution.
Please call or fax USP Canaan and ask – demand – that Imam Jamil be given immediate adequate medical attention. A more detailed statement will be forthcoming.

The Imam Jamil Action Network (IJAN) urges all to support this effort to gain relief and to demand the release from the unjust imprisonment of our righteous brother.
We must stop this “execution by medical neglect.”
