Did you know there are dozens of political prisoners right here in the United Sates, many of whom have been incarcerated for more than 30, 40 or 50 years?

Come hear speakers discuss their cases and strategies for getting them out:

- Sekou Odinga is a former political prisoner, imprisoned for over 33 years for fighting for the freedom of Black people and the building of the Republic of New Afrika. He was released on November 25, 2014.

- dequi kioni-sadiki is the chair of the Malcolm X commemoration committee and co-coordinator of the Sekou Odinga Defense Committee. She is the co-host of WBAI‘s Where We Live.

- Jose Lopez has been at the forefront of the Puerto Rican movement for forty years and is the executive director of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center in Chicago. He is the brother of Puerto Rican political prisoner, Oscar Lopez-Rivera.

- Morning Star Gali is a long time Indigenous activist. She is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Pitt River Tribe and Representative of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee.

- Eric McDavid is a green anarchist who was convicted of conspiracy to use fire or explosives to damage corporate and government property. After serving nearly ten years in prison, he was released after it was shown there was FBI entrapment and misconduct.
