Imam Jamil Update

(From: Free Imam Jamil Al-Amin)

As some of you may already know, Jamil Al-Amin has been moved to the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX), which is a super-max prison in Florence, Colorado. This facility generally houses over 400 prisoners, and each prisoner is assigned to one of six security levels. At this time it is unclear which level Jamil Al-Amin had been assigned to. Most prisoners at this facility are kept for at least 23 hours each day in solitary confinement (Jamil Al-Amin was already kept under 23 hour lock down since 2002).

This Penitentiary is "home" to many high profile prisoners, including Omer Abdel-Rahman ("the Blind Sheik") and many of the other 1993 accused World Trade Center "conspirators", Zacarias Moussaoui, Theodore Kazcynski, Terry Nichols, Richard Reid, Robert Hanssen, Eric Rudolph, and John Walker Lindh. Additionally there numerous high ranking members and leaders of groups including skinheads, several gangs and drug rings.

There is a growing pubic outcry against these types of maximum security facilities, and efforts are underway to organize a public resistance movement. These types of facilities have been created by the united states government to in essence break down the inmates. This type of isolation and mistreatment over time is a form of torture and should be a great source of embarrassment for a "leading nation" as the United States claims to be.

The main goal for supporters at this point is to make this new facility very aware of the public support for Jamil Al-Amin. There is a mass effort underway to flood the prison with mail for him.

Please note: According to prison regulations, all mail is opened, read, and censored. (Please do not let that affect your decision to write.)
