(A3 Newsletter) The Waiting Game: 43 Years of Innocence; Still Incarcerated; Still Isolated

(PHOTO: Albert Woodfox in 1998)

Today marks 43 years since Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace were first placed in solitary confinement for a crime they didn't commit. We now await a decision from Federal Judge James Brady regarding Albert's request for bail, expected any week.

Featured below are messages from both Albert and Robert King. New artwork by longtime A3 supporter Rigo 23 is displayed alongside a poem written by Albert back in 1998 entitled I Wait. Who could have imagined that 17 years later, in 2015, he would still be in solitary confinement, still waiting for justice?

If you have not yet done so, please sign the Amnesty USA petition calling on Louisiana authorities to not oppose bail for Albert!

A Message from Albert



Greetings.  I'd imagine that friends and supporters are concerned with what is happening to me since being transferred from the Louisiana Department of Corrections to West Feliciana Parish custody.  I'm ok--still in isolation as we come upon the 43rd anniversary of my first days in solitary confinement.  I remain strong and dedicated to the people's struggle. 

Stay Strong,
Albert


Robert King on Albert's 43 Years in Hell

(PHOTO: Robert King released in 2001)


Albert sits in a cell in a parish detention center in West St. Francisville Parish, where he is "still waiting."  He waits for the State of Louisiana's next move in their game of infinitely obstructing justice.  We, all of Albert's supporters, wait with him.

No evidence connects Albert to the murder. The case is rife with prosecutorial misconduct as well as manufactured and purchased testimony. Yet, 43 years later, despite a third overturned conviction, the State continues hell-bent in its determination to not just incarcerate Albert, but to also keep him isolated in solitary confinement.

Waiting for justice is a tortuously slow process in this "land of the free."

Local Media Coverage of Baton Rouge Prayer Vigil for Albert
 

The April 12 prayer vigil with Michael Mable, brother of Albert Woodfox (shown in photo above), led by Reverend Dr. Patricia T. Bates and sponsored by the National Religious Campaign Against Torture was reported on by The Advocate:

A small group gathered at the Wesley United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge Sunday afternoon to pray for Albert Woodfox, the last of the Angola 3 still in prison, and his brother, Michael Mable, said he hopes that he will see his brother as a free man within both their lifetimes.

"I do believe he's innocent," Mable said. "I just want him to have his freedom."

Mable said he has visited his brother every month without fail since his brother's incarceration in the early 1970s. Mable still makes the drive even after leaving New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and settling in Houston. He works as a chef on an offshore drilling platform.

Mable recalled how his older brother, then in his early 20s, also essentially raised him and his four other siblings on his own - from walking them to school to making sure they fell asleep.

"I just want justice," Mable said Sunday. "I just feel that all these years, they've never proved that Albert did this. ... My struggle is to make sure that he gets free one day."



I Wait 
By Albert Woodfox 
(1998)

6x8 cell and I wait
I wait for revolution , and I wait
For Unity and I wait for Peace
I wait while people shoot up dope
And while people smoke down grass!
Yes, I wait, am i a fool?
I wait, I wait and I wait!
People party down and I wait
I wait while people do the boogey
Robot, Bus stop and hustle
Our Lives away!                                
Education, agitation, organization
I'm still waiting
Justice! I'm waiting.

  1. I'm saddened that there's no a lot more coverage and awareness about this in media and govt. This is outrageously unacceptable. There should be millions of signatures on this petition and hundreds of thousands marching for justice for Albert Woodfox. My thoughts and prayers go out daily to him and his whole family. How can we get people to wake up and care and take action?

  3. Hp laserjet p2035 toner dolumu fiyatı dikkate alındığında ekonomik fiyatlara kullanılan mono lazer yazıcılar arasında bulunmaktadır.

    CE461A yazıcı kodu bulunan mono laser yazıcı siyah beyaz kopyalama yeteneğine sahip sağlam alt yapıya sahip kaliteli yazıcılar arasında bulunmaktadır.

    Hp p2035 yazıcı fiyatı açısından emsal ürünlere oranla biraz pahalı gibi görünmesine karşın sağlam alt yapısı ve hesaplı kullanım maliyeti ile ödenen fiyat farkını kısa sürede amorti edecek özellikleri taşımaktadır.

    Dakikada 30 sayfa standart siyah beyaz kopyalama yapabilen yazıcının ilk kopya çıkış hızı 8 saniye civarındadır.

    Toplam 10 kg ağırlığa sahip bulunan printer, hafif yapısıyla kolayca yeri değiştirilmesi yanında, emizlik esnasında önemli derecede kolaylık sağlamaktadır.

    Yazıcıyla birlikte kurulum esnasında kutudan çıkan demo toner kartuşu % 5 doluluk oranı dikkate alındğında 1000 sayfa baskı yapabilme yeteneğine sahip olmakla birlikte satın alınacak yedek HP Siyah - Beyaz Lazer Toneri Yazıcı Kartuşları HP 05A Siyah Orijinal LaserJet Toner Kartuşu (CE505A) aynı doluluk oranı ile 2300 sayfa siyah beyaz çıktı vermektedir.

    Yazıcının kullandığı hp 05a ce505a yazıcı toneri kopyalama yapabilmek için tüm özellikleri üzerinde taşıdığından ek malzeme veya ekipman gerekmeden kopyalama yapabilmektedir.

    Kaset kartuşun üzerinde tümleşik yapıda üretilmiş drum adındaki görüntü tamburu bulunması nedeniyle yalnızca toz ilave edilmek suretiyle yapılan ucuz hp p2035 toner dolumu fiyatı ile yapılan dolum problem yaşanmasına neden olmaktadır, bunun nedeni tek kullanımlık olarak üretilmiş olan kaset kartuşun içinde kullanılan tüm parçalar kaset tankı içinde yer alan toner tozu bitene kadar sorun yaşatmayacak kalite özelliklerini taşıyan parçalardan üretilmiştir.

    Mürekkep püskürtmeli yazıcılarda kullanılan likit mürekkeple aynı görevi yapan toz haldeki baskı materyali ilavesi ile doldurma yapılan kartuşlar, kısa süre sonunda içindeki tozu fotokopi kağıdı üzerine dökmeye başlayarak yazı kalitesinin bozulmasına neden olmakta, zaman içinde dökülen tozlar yazıcı içine yayılarak yazıcının çeşitli nedenlerle arız yapmalarına sebep olmaktadır.

    Bu yüzden ucuz hp p2035 kartuş dolumu fiyatı ödeyerek doldurma yapılması yerine yenileme olarak bilinen yeniden üretim sistemiyle kartuş yenilenmelidir.
