Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown), was the Former Chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) during the 1960's and is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a 2002 murder conviction. He is Innocent!

 Initially, he was imprisoned in the state of Georgia and deemed a "high profile" prisoner. In October of 2007, Georgia prison officials moved him without notice, 1400 miles away to USP ADMAX (supermax prison) in Florence, Colorado.  Isolation, sensor deprivation, sensory overload and inhumane conditions are the norm in superemax prisons, especially in Florence. Under these conditions his health has deteriorated.

He began suffering with medical problems, including dental issues, which resulted in swollen jaws and the inability to swallow. He waited 10 months to see a dentist and after seeing one, his condition worsened. Subsequently, he waited an additional five months after submitting a dental request to see another. On June 23, 2014, preliminary findings suggested that he has Multiple Myeloma (cancer of the plasma cells).Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin #99974-555 needs to obtain an immediate transfer to the best suited federal medical center designed to perform a bone marrow biopsy and determine the best course of treatment.

We, the undersigned, are requesting that Jamil Al-Amin #99974-555 obtain an immediate transfer to the best suited federal medical center designed to perform a bone marrow biopsy and determine the best course of treatment. Jamil Al-Amin's grave condition requires high specialization and we are demanding that the objective standards are met. Imam Jamil Al-Amin currently experiences serious and substantial risks to his health. These problems are obviously visible within his lack of desires to recreation, difficulty in eating, loss of 29 pounds over a three week period, difficulties in breathing and carrying out normal daily functions. His feet are swollen, top and bottom, he remains lethargic, and is in need of an urgent medical transfer to the best suited federal medical center designed to perform a bone marrow biopsy and determine the best course of treatment.
