As Salaamu Alaykum Friend,
Today, President Obama made two historic commutations when he freed Puerto Rican elder and political prisoner Oscar López Rivera, and whistleblower Chelsea Manning....
We applaud President Obama for these righteous decisions and congratulate the many communities opening theirs arms to welcome these two political prisoners back home.
At the same time, we demand justice for Imam Jamil Al-Amin—the civil rights activist, Muslim religious leader, and political prisoner formerly known as H. Rap Brown.
Will you sign our petition demanding President Obama issue a a medical parole to Iman Jamil before he leaves office?
President Obama will be in the White House until 12:00pm on Friday. He has until that last moment to right the wrongs of history—to strike a blow at the vengeful system that targeted this beloved imam and to make peace.
Imam Jamil once said, "I have been tormented and persecuted by my enemies for reasons of race and belief. I seek Truth over a lie. I seek justice over injustice. I seek righteousness over the rewards of evil doers. I love Allah more than I love the State.”
From the time he was first arrested on dubious charges while he was leading the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, until the day he was locked away for a crime he didn't commit, Imam Jamil has been intentionally targeted by law enforcement. President Obama can fix this now.
Let's do all we can to help Free Imam Jamil! Please share the petition with all your friends today—it's not too late.
Please sign the petition today and share it with all your friends today—it's not too late.
Dustin, Linda, Mark, Mohammad, and the MPower Change team
P.S. We also pray and demand that President Obama pardon or commute the sentence of Leonard Peltier, the American Indian Movement activist who was wrongly convicted in the 1975 shooting deaths of two FBI agents at Pine Ridge.

#ActionAlert #ImamJamilAlAmin formerly known as #HRapBrown's character & principled life is a light for #justice for all the oppressed: enjoining the good, opposing all wrong. He is a link between the Black community & the Muslim community. He, like many other #freedomfighters from the 1960s has been hounded ever since-from the US govt. #cointelpro then to their continued languishing in prisons today. #ImamJamil needs an immediate transfer to be near his family, to fight his case & get health care! Call USP Tucson Warden: 520-574-7100 #FreeHRapBrown #FreeImamJamilAlAmin #FreeEmAll iA

This is info that could be beneficial to Imam Jamil/H. Rap Brown in the final days of Obama's presidency. You can still contact the white house via email and social media. Please do so for political prisoners who have raised issues of social justice on behalf of us all! Free em all!!!
Now that Imam Jamil has been diagnosed with an incurable cancer and the prison has proven unable to provide medical care, please support his release on Medical ...Parole, also known as Medical Furlough and Humanitarian Parole. Sign and share in solidarity!
