US Fifth CIrcuit Court rules against Albert Woodfox of the Angola 3

No Justice, No Peace! We continue to fight for Albert and Herman's freedom!

On Monday, June 21, the US Fifth Circuit Court ruled to overturn a July 2008 decision that ordered that Albert Woodfox's conviction and life sentence be "reversed and vacated." As James Ridgeway and Jean Casella write in their article featured at Mother Jones and Solitary Watch, yesterday's decision was "a crushing blow to prisoners' rights."

Later this week, we will have more updates as we learn more about what Albert's next steps will be. Until then, please read Ridgeway and Casella's article here.
