In light of the Judicial Lynching of Troy Davis, I hope to draw more attention to Political Prisoners who are still on death row.
The naked truth about Political Prisoners and the COINTELPRO program.
“COINTELPRO” was the FBI’s secret program to undermine the popular upsurge which swept the country during the 1960s. Though the name stands for “Counterintelligence Program,” the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate “radical” political opposition inside the US. When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally- protected political activity. Its methods ranged far beyond surveillance, and amounted to a domestic version of the covert action for which the CIA has become infamous throughout the world.

Contacting Political Prisoners
Always include a non-P.O. Box return address.
For a reply, include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope.
Ask before you send any books, articles, etc. Some prisons may prohibit certain material.
Display humility and patience. These are real people fighting for their lives, with families and projects. (Yes, many stay busy.)
Tell them who you are (name/gender/age/race, etc.), a little about your political beliefs, your level of community activism and why you are writing.
Don’t badger someone to write you back.
Do not press for details on cases pending, unless you have information that can lead to proving someone’s innocence.
