London, April 21: Amnesty UK Preview Screening of 'Cruel and Unusual' by Vadim Jean

(Event info from Amnesty UK)

When:  Thursday, 21 April 2016 from 18:30 to 21:30 (BST)
Where:  Amnesty International UK - 25 New Inn Yard, London EC2A 3EA, United Kingdom

Amnesty International UK is delighted to announce a special UK preview screening of ‘Cruel and Unusual’, a new documentary feature film telling the story of the Angola 3's struggle for justice, fighting their unjust convictions and the cruel and unusual punishment of long term solitary confinement in Louisiana prisons. 

After decades imprisoned in a six foot by nine foot cell, Albert Woodfox’s conviction was overturned for the third time and in February 2016 he was finally released from his wrongful imprisonment having spent longer in solitary than any other prisoner in the United States.

His fight for justice and freedom has taken 43 years.

At the screening we will be joined by some incredible speakers who will share their experiences of Albert Woodfox, Herman Wallace, Robert King and their extraordinary cases:

Robert King – a fellow member of the Angola 3 held in solitary for 29 years before his release in 2001 who has campaigned ever since for the release of his comrades.

Vadim Jean – Director of ‘Cruel and Unusual’ and ‘In the Land of the Free’ a 2010 documentary about the Angola 3.

Tessa Murphy – Of Angola3.org who campaigned on Albert and Herman's cases, and who previously led Amnesty's international campaigning on the cases and on solitary confinement.
Sam Roddick -- Campaigner and passionate supporter of the Angola 3.

Hosted by Felix Jakens from the Amnesty International UK Individuals at Risk team.

Join us as we celebrate Albert’s freedom and look ahead at the next steps in securing justice for him and the Angola 3 as their struggle against the use of long term solitary confinement in US prisons continues

  2. I am Shally Mills from FLORIDA, When I eventually found testimonies about this spell caster Dr. Anabi, how he helped many people to get their lovers and broken homes back, i contacted him through because I was absolutely desperate to get my husband back. Life without my husband was a real mess for me and my children. i wanted a dramatic change and I thought love spell could be the solution. After discussing the resolution with Dr Anabi, he gave me hope that he will restore my marriage. I felt confident that he will actually make my husband to return home and he did! It’s fantastic what this great spell caster have done for me, his help is priceless! I don't know what I would have done without Dr. Anabi, He does his job so well he is organized and highly functional, i believe he is the best spell caster i can count on when it comes to all kinds of spell, I was floored that his spells worked, if you need help, contact him on Ultimatehightemple@yahoo.com or Ultimatehightemple@gmail.com call +2348112180471

  3. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS'
