A3 Newsletter: Bail Hearing for Albert Woodfox on Monday, March 2 --Come to Baton Rouge to Support Albert

MEDIA:  Judicial system's treatment of two Angola inmates resembles a lottery, by James Gill

We've just received word that Albert's bail hearing will proceed on Monday, March 2nd at 9:30am in Courtroom 6 of the US Middle District Court in Baton Rouge (777 Florida St.). Albert will be present; and though we know it is short notice, local supporters are urged to attend if at all possible.

If you have not yet done so, please sign the Amnesty International petition calling on Gov. Jindal to not oppose bail for Albert.



Albert Release Arguments Heat Up as Monday's Bail Hearing Approaches

48 hours ago the State submitted a written request for Federal District Court Judge James A. Brady to cancel Albert's Monday, March 2nd bail hearing on the grounds that his reindictment moves the question of release from federal to state jurisdiction.



Though Albert has retained his right to petition for bail in the state system if needed, Albert's legal team maintains that jurisdiction over custody and release properly remains with the federal courts until the habeas appeal process is complete, regardless of whether he has been reindicted or not.

Whether or not Judge Brady agrees that it is within his jurisdiction to grant release to Albert on bail, he still indisputably retains a sweeping power to define the conditions of release however he sees fit as a part of his final mandate granting habeas corpus relief.

Please join Albert in Court on Monday to support his strong and just petition for release. His freedom is long overdue.

NEW VIDEO: Citing '43 Years of Injustice,' Amnesty International interviews UN Special Rapporteur Juan Mendez about Albert Woodfox

Amnesty International has just released a new video entitled "Free Albert Woodfox: 43 Years of Injustice," (on You Tube and Facebook) featuring an interview with Juan Mendez, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The video was made in support of Amnesty's new petition campaign focusing on Albert's pending application for release on bail.

In 2013, declaring that “Four decades in solitary confinement can only be described as torture,” Mendez called for Albert's immediate release from solitary confinement. Speaking about Albert in this new video, Juan Mendez says:

"Mr. Woodfox is spending his days in solitary confinement…His convictions have been reversed and the State is appealing them, so in fact he should be considered an innocent man until his guilt or innocence is resolved."

"There’s no question that his conditions inflict on him the kind of pain and suffering of a mental nature that is associated with torture and I think that should stop."

Walter Turner of Africa Today interviews Jasmine Heiss of Amnesty Intl. USA and Robert H. King

On Feb. 23, the KPFA radio show Africa Today, focused on Albert Woodfox's case, featuring interviews with Robert King and Amnesty USA's Jasmine Heiss, shown to the right at an earlier event (listen here).

Asked about AG Caldwell's continued prosecution of Albert Woodfox, Heiss said she did not understand it herself. She asked: "Why is the Attorney General, why is the State of Louisiana so committed to keeping this man behind bars despite the fact that, not only has his conviction been overturned three times, but he has a clean disciplinary record? There is no reason for him to continue to be held in solitary."

Robert King concluded the show by reminding us to stay focused on the task at hand. "There is nothing else to do but to continue to fight... Herman was released. Albert will be out pretty soon but the struggle continues," said King, who then emphasized that the fight for Albert's release is part of a larger struggle against mass incarceration and human rights violations throughout the US prison system.

Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Lucy,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 3 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped lord aguma email address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48 hours, my husband came back to me.

  9. How To Get Your Lost Husband Back

    “LOVE is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr Ukaka when I consulted his powerful Love Temple. I married the wrong man; I realized that after four years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr Ukaka from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via freedomlovespell@hotmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr Ukaka. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr Ukaka told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr Ukaka is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank you great Dr Ukaka and your Oracle for helping us via freedomlovespell@hotmail.com and I will keep spreading this message to people in need of help. also contact him for help.website address: freedomlovespelltemple.yolasite.com ;

  11. Taking you through landscapes of most staggering mountains and an inside and out insight of the life in the mountains of Nepal, Annapurna Base Camp Trek is probably the most novel treks that Nepal brings to the table. Along steep slopes and over snow-topped mountains, this trek takes you through edges, passes, wildernesses where you can witness the various flower and faunal types of Nepali natural life. This trek offers all that a trekker would need to experience. Machhapuchhre on the privilege and the Hiunchuli on the left, the trek will permit you to go through steep snow-clad edges directly into the passage of the Annapurna Sanctuary.

  13. My Wife divorce me for no reason, Thanks to Dr Dr.jarto for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again, My name is Marcus Williams. i live in Italy, I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(Dr.jartospellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same web site: http://Dr.jartosp.blogspot.co.uk/,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Dr.jarto for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. { Dr.jartospellcaster@gmail.com }, Thanks you Dr Dr.jarto, i will always be testifying about your good work.This spell is a 100% Guarantee for your situation.
