Free Jalil!

    1. Petition by

      Jericho Amnesty Movement

Anthony Bottom, aka Jalil Muntaqim, has been incarcerated since 1971 for his involvement with the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army. A victim of the FBI's illegal COINTELPROgram, he has been behind bars for 42 years and is currently over 60 years old. Jalil maintains an exemplary prison record, and is the co-founder of the Jericho Amnesty Movement working to free all political prisoners and prisoners of war. Jalil--a great grandfather, brother, son, and friend--is nearing his 8th parole hearing in the summer of 2014. 

He has been widely supported in Buffalo, NY, and the community there welcomes his release on parole in 2014.

      Too many who resisted the murderous and criminal assassination attempts against the Black Panther Party, an organization dedicated to the uplift and protection of Black and poor communities, in the 1960's, were "rewarded" for their defense of their people with trumped up charges and the imposition of draconian sentences by courts and police that utilized tactics of police, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct to obtain what have often been found, upon long-overdue review by appellate courts, to be false convictions and frame-ups. It's long since time that these men and women, who have almost without exception served their sentences with uncommon honor and distinction as "model prisoners" and have actually contributed to the rehabilitation of other inmates, to be set free to spend the remainders of their lives among family, friends, and the community that still needs them.
