SIGN TO SUPPORT COMPASSIONATE RELEASE FOR THE NEWBURGH 4

The Newburgh 4 case was a very unfair sting operation where the FBI, and an extremely unscrupulous informant named Shahed Hussain, targeted 4 Black men in the impoverished community of Newburgh, NY. The men (David Williams, Onta Williams, Laguerre Payen and James Cromitie) had no interest in terrorism - they just wanted the money that the informant offered them. They were all sentenced to the mandatory minimum of 25 years, and have now served 12 of the 25 years.

Now is the time to grant compassionate release and let them come home!
