Defend Kinetik Justice - Key organizer of Nationwide Prison Strike
We demand that:
1) Robert Earl Council aka Kinetik Justice be transferred from Limestone Correctional Facility immediately
2) Alabama Dept of Corrections follow the law & allow Pastor Kenneth Glasgow of The Ordinary People's Society to visit him and assess his conditions immediately
Why is this important?
On October 21, 2016 Robert Earl Council (aka Kinetik Justice Amun) went on a Hunger Strike based on threats against his life from the Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC) administration and staff. He was transferred to a supermax facility, where water was shut off in his cell in an effort to force him out of his hunger strike. His transfers were done as a form of retalitaion on behalf of the ADOC, strategically happening right after the media exposed the prison crisis during a nationwide prison strike to demand compensation for unpaid labor and changes to inhumane prison conditions.
Kinetik has been inside for over 22 years and is a co-founder of the Free Alabama Movement which has organized successful work stoppages to demand basic human rights and has provided education and legal support to hundreds of incarcerated people.
The strike has since subsided and Kinetik Justice has ended his hunger strike however he is still in solitary confiment at Limestone Correctional Facility, located in one of the most secluded areas in Alabama.
During his hunger strike Kinetik Justice was in danger for his life, and organizers are still calling for action! Join us in demanding that Kinetik Justice be removed from soiltary confiment and be moved back to Hollman or St. Clair Correctional Facility where he can be easily seen by his lawyers and a doctor for his ongoing health problems that continue to be ignored by the Alabama Correctional Department.
Free Alabama Movement requested that Pastor Kenneth Glasgow serve as their spokesperson on the outside. Director of The Ordinary Peoples Society (TOPS) based in Alabama, Pastor Glasgow is formerly incarcerated and works with a broad based of movement organizations through the Southern Movement Assembly.
