Free Jason Puracal, an Innocent American in Nicaraguan Prison

Jason Puracal is an American citizen who is literally fighting for his life in a maximum security prison in Nicaragua. He has been wrongfully imprisoned there since November 2010 - sentenced to 22 years on sham charges of drug trafficking, money laundering, and organized crime. Not one shred of evidence was found linking him to any of these illegal activities. After nine months of unlawful delays, on August 29, 2011, Jason was declared guilty in a closed door trial that barred the media and family members from attending. Today he struggles to survive in a deadly prison called La Modelo. Jason has repeatedly declared his innocence and the prosecution’s own witnesses at trial demonstrated that he did not commit the crimes with which he was charged. The police witnesses testified they never recovered any drugs in his possession or in his office, home, or truck. The independent California Innocence Project, which reviews some 2,000 cases from inmates claiming wrongful conviction annually, chose Jason’s case as one of 10 it agreed to work on this year. Right now Jason is languishing in a small, filthy cell with seven other men. The prison officials have denied him edible food and drinkable water on a daily basis. As a result, he has lost more than 30 pounds. A hole in the corner of the cell serves as toilet, sink, and shower drain. Exposed electrical wires frequently spark inside the cell. Also, an inmate was recently murdered by another inmate just feet from Jason’s cell. Wrongful convictions occur in every criminal justice system around the world, but if we, as a global neighborhood, shine a light on the cases, perpetrators (such as the Nicaraguan police and convicting judge, in this case) will think twice before wrongfully convicting another innocent American. We ask you to sign this petition to demand that the Nicaraguan Government will both ensure the case is thoroughly and independently reviewed by prosecutors, and immediately improve the conditions under which Jason is detained. Jason's family is struggling financially to keep their defense effort alive.

A Call for Nation-Wide Police Reform

The murder of George Floyd highlights the truth of systemic racism and police brutality in America. What is police brutality? Police brutality is the unwarranted or excessive and often illegal use of force against civilians by police officers. Forms of police brutality include, assault/battery, harassment (such as false arrests), intimidation, verbal abuse, and murder. We are calling for an end to police brutality through a sustainable, nation-wide reform, of all police departments. Our demands are as follows: 1. The Department of Justice (DOJ) will conduct an in-depth investigation of any civilian/police encounter where lethal force was used. 2. Within 24 hours, all officers involved in an incident where lethal force was used will be removed from their position, without pay and arrested. DOJ will then conduct their investigation and try the officer(s) accordingly. 3. The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) will create a clear, non-negotiable guideline for the "rules of engagement" when an officer interacts with a civilian; resulting in the expectation to have safest interaction and outcome possible for all involved. 4. Any officer affiliated with one or more known hate groups ( i.e. Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazi/Anti-Semitic groups, etc) will be permanently removed from their position, without further pay, and will be banned from holding any position of public service. 5. All officers will complete 100 hours of mandatory Cultural Sensitivity training, to equip them with the tools to safely interact with those outside of their culture, with recurrent training required once a year. 6. All officers will complete 100 hours of mandatory Disability and Inclusion training for safe interaction with civilians with developmental disabilities, with recurrent training required once a year. 7. All officers will be required to see a mental health professional for a minimum of 2 hours per month, and they will supply their supervisor with documentation that confirms their participation. 8. All officers will be required to demonstrate their knowledge of the laws/bi-laws of their specific state with a written test, with recurrent testing required once a year. 9. Upon beginning a shift, all officers will be required to document their current mental state (i.e. stressed, calm, happy, etc.) and have documented approval to begin their shift from their superior, who agrees the officer is in a clear, non-aggressive mental state. 10. Nation-wide legislation will be passed meeting or exceeding the aforementioned demands no later than January 1, 2021, with all police departments expected to adhere to these standards by January 1, 2022.

Que le devuelvan la Hacienda Santa Monica a los niños pobres de Panamá.

En Panamá hay medio millón de niños pobres, 200,000 niños viven en extrema pobreza. Muchos de estos niños solo tienen una madre que sirve como Madre y Padre a la vez. Estas guerreras Panameñas se levantan todos los días a las 4am con una sonrisa en cara para tomar un pésimo sistema de transporte y llegar a un trabajo donde les pagan mal. Ese es el Panamá que vivimos, el Panamá de dos países, el Panamá de los que tienen dinero y el Panamá de los que no tienen. Se acabo la clase media. Se acabo la justicia, y se acabo la solidaridad. Vivimos en un país donde las leyes se aplican para los pobres y no para los ricos. Pero de vez en cuando llega a Panamá un hombre rico, con un corazón grande. Esa es la historia del Sr. Charles Lucom, un hombre Norte Americano que hizo su plata con mucho esfuerzo y sudor en Panamá. Y cuando murió, decidió dejarle en su testamento a los Niños Pobres de Panamá un regalo. Les regaló la Hacienda Santa Mónica. La Hacienda Santa Mónica queda en Antón y colinda con Buenaventura y Juan Hombrón. La Hacienda tiene alrededor de 700 hectáreas de terreno (que valen más de $800 millones) y se le fue regalada a los niños pobres de Panamá por el Sr Lucom como dice su testamento. Como los niños pobres de Panamá no cuentan con un representante legal, el Sr Alberto Vallarino y su pandilla de abogados deciden asaltar a los 500,000 niños pobres de Panamá y robarles la Hacienda Santa Mónica. El Sr Vallarino con sus secuaces utilizaron el corrupto sistema Judicial Panameño y cambiaron el Testamento del Sr. Lucom y se quedaron con Hacienda Santa Mónica.  Queremos que se haga justicia y le devuelvan la Hacienda Santa Mónica a los niños pobres de Panamá como lo quiso el Sr. Lucom en su testamento. Gracias, Los niños pobres de Panamá.

FREEDOM MATTERS, RELEASE ALL FROM JAIL FOR CANNABIS RELATED CHARGES UNDER 8 OUNCES

We have had many successes recently in progressing cannabis laws - which are to be celebrated. However, we can’t celebrate the progress without acknowledging the travesties that are still happening daily.  There are literally millions of Afro American men and women sitting in jails and prison cells because of the failed war on drugs. While our representatives in Congress focus on banking, interstate commerce, and states’ rights, human beings are being incarcerated and enslaved by corporate prisons for possession of a plant, the majority of which are Afro Americans.  For instance, Corvain Cooper is currently serving life in prison without the possibility of parole for non-violent marijuana-related charges.   According to the ACLU, marijuana arrests now account for over half of all drug arrests in the United States. Of the 8.2 million marijuana arrests between 2001 and 2010, 88% were for simply possessing marijuana.  Nationwide, the arrest data revealed one consistent trend: significant racial bias. Despite roughly equal usage rates, Black people are 3.73 times more likely than white people to be arrested for marijuana. Over half of those arrests were of black males between 2001 and 2010. Let that number sink in for a minute.  We need to create a plan that releases these people from prisons and jails throughout the United States. It is imperative that every state that passes tax and regulation laws also includes the release of those serving time for non-violent cannabis convictions. We need to focus on getting those incarcerated for non-violent cannabis charges released so they can start their lives again with their loved ones.  Corporate prisons in the US profit an average of $39,000 per incarcerated person per year. In New York, they profit $60,000 per person. It’s unjust and needs to end.  It’s time to start righting the wrongs of cannabis prohibition and the prison industrial complex. Every time a state considers “legalizing” cannabis, the first consideration needs to be for the men and women who have been locked up and removed from society for the same plant they are planning on collecting billions of dollars in taxes on.  Please sign the petition to let your voice be heard - no legalization without every non-violent cannabis prisoner’s release. If you want to continue the support for this effort further please contact the National Cannabis Diversity Awareness Convention by email (NDACPDX@GMAIL.COM)
