RAM Support Through Walls: Russell Maroon Shoatz

This week we are writing to revolutionary prisoner Russell Maroon Shoatz. He has been ill lately and we wanted to lift his spirits. Shoatz is a founding member of the Black Unity Council, a former member of the Black Panther Party and a soldier in the Black Liberation Army. In 1970, along with 5 others, Maroon was accused of attacking a police station, which resulted in a cop being killed. This attack was said to have been carried out in response to the rampant police brutality in the Black community. For 18 months Maroon functioned underground as a soldier in the Black Liberation Army. In 1972 he was captured. Twice he escaped—once in 1977 and again in 1980, but both […]

The barbaric white supremacist prison system has been force feeding him, which is a widely recognized form of torture.
