The Lucasville Uprising was a rebellion against oppressive and racist policies at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility (SOCF) in Lucasville, OH. Nine inmates and one guard died during the uprising in April of 1993. Today, many people are serving time or condemned to death by the state of Ohio in relation to the uprising. Keith LaMar is a death row inmate falsely accused of the murder of fellow prisoners during the uprising.
On Tuesday, October 8, groups of people all over the country will screen the film Condemned: Keith Lamar, about Keith’s case and the state’s persecution of him. This will be the first step in a campaign to spread awareness and prepare to take action in his defense.
Come watch this film about his case to learn more about the uprising and where he stands now.
In his own words:
“For myself, I intend to keep building on the base that I’ve established, working with any and every body who is opposed to this monstrous system. Let’s come together, work together, and stop looking for the same people who profit from our pain to save us.”
