The Angola 2: Albert Woodfox, Herman Wallace & Robert Wilkerson
Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace are former Black Panther's, detained illegally by the state of Louisiana in the hole of the infamous Angola Prison since 1972. Because he also was a BPP member and thus labeled "militant," Robert Wilkerson has also been locked down in solitary confinement since 1972.
Mumia Abu-Jamal: the People's Petiton
Seeing the need to put into play a legal strategy that placed politics in command, ITJ devised and implemented what we call "The People’s Petition," which attacks the Pennsylvania state court process as unable to protect the rights of prisoners in Mumia’s and other cases. The People’s Petition is not active at this point, but the strategy can and should be used for other political prisoners and illegally detained persons. For more information about Mumia’s case, see the Freedom Fighters page.

The People's Defense Network
Based in the Washington DC metropolitan area, PDN grew out of local efforts of families victimized by police violence to obtain justice. The PDN was established in 1995, bringing together families, groups and individuals struggling to end police repression in the region. PDN has been exposing not only the killer cops, but the criminal means by which the government protects them.
When the shoreline is littered with injustice as far as the eye can see, the people must rise up as a powerful wave, a tsunami, to sweep it all away and establish justice.
