    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Paroles, 03/20/15

    in Politics Progressive

    At 3pmEST on Fridays, we present Mary Diaz on the "Huaman Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Please call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. You can also listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," where "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but released fewer than 20. Prison investors on the Pardons and Parole Board are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates. 

    Diaz said Alabama's Pardon and Parole Board has become a trendsetter for the rest of the country regarding releases. In Alabama during 2014, the Board considered 6,647 paroles, of which 2,237 were granted. The Board also granted 657 pardons of 798 pardons heard and processed 522 voter rights restorations. That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to a lawsuit by the Southern Poverty Law Center against the Alabama prison system.

    "Presently, Maynard Cooper & Gale is fighting a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit that claims the health care provided to Alabama's inmates is inadequate and unconstitutional. Correctional health care firm Corizon is paying the firm to fight the lawsuit on behalf of the state due to a provision in its $224 million contract with the state. In total, the state has spent $1.86 million in taxpayer money to fight prison lawsuits in the past four years." (Report by AL(dot) com). That sum likely also includes a lawsuit by the ‎ACLU for segregating inmates with HIV. Righteous lawsuits litigated in just courts can make justice system reform mandatory.

That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to the Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit against the Alabama prison system.


    Diaz makes a human rights demand: Either release eligible prisoners after they serve their minimum sentences, or show why their parole would risk community safety. Attention: 20 to life does NOT mean life. That sentence means offenders serve at least 20 years and then are released unless there is a good reason why not. Prison profits is NOT an acceptable reason to keep parole-eligible men and women incarcerated. Taxpayers simply cannot afford it, and most are not interested in having a rehabilitated, harmless, geiatric prison population just to enrich prison investors.

    The Lion: Diana Diaz

    in Self Help

    Diana is a colombian and chilean actress and dancer.  She was initially introduced to the teachings of yoga in her teenage years when she was training to become a professional dancer. A lot of the stretching exercises were derived from yoga and her teachers would have her do visualizing meditations to increase her performance.  They had planted a seed in her that would flourish as she matured into adulthood. Meditation and yoga are now a regular practice that has centered her sense of self and altered her quality of life.  She founded the non-profit Youth Yoga Inc. because she wants to create a shift in the way teenagers relate to themselves.  She is creating a world where children and teenagers are powerful.  A world where they get to live a life they love!
