Photos from Herman Wallace Birthday Event in New Orleans

Angola 3 supporters in New Orleans set up a slide show with cupcakes and information to commemorate Herman's 37th Birthday in solitary confinement. The slide show was projected out into the street. Passersby, and on occasion, driversby were welcome to a handmade cupcake decorated with "37/68" and information on the Angola 3.

Herman's writ seeking a new trial was denied late Friday afternoon by the Louisiana State Supreme Court with no comment from the Court. The denial was no surprise to the A3 legal team and supporters who have become accustomed to injustice at the hands of State and local officials. Although disappointed, Herman, Albert and Robert remind supporters that Herman's case can now begin new life as a habeas petition in Federal Court--the same judicial process that already succeeded in overturning Albert's conviction.

This news is added to the fact that Herman has been placed in Extended Administrative Lockdown for the next 90 days for reasons yet unknown--overall this makes for a rotten way to spend a 68th birthday, even after 37+ in solitary. Send Herman some love and let him know we're here for the long haul. Write to:
