    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Pardons, July 31, 2015

    in Politics Progressive

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Pardons. Call-in (347)857.3293 to discuss the need for more pardons and paroles in Florida and other states. Diaz demands release of all inmates after serving minimum sentences unless authorities show reason to assume the release of a given inmate would present a danger to society. The Human Conflicts Org. also demands the release of elderly and dying inmates who would present no danger to society. Taxpayers are being burdened with paying to continue incarcerating rehabilitated prisoners, elderly prisoners, dying inmates, and persons who were convicted on nonviolent offenses whose release would not have any negative impact on society whatsoever.

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Paroles June 26, 2015

    in Politics Progressive

    Mary Diaz on the "Huaman Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Tell us your opinion by calling (347)857-3293, or you can listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," and "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but only released 18. Prison investors on Pardons and Parole Boards are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates, I think. 

    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 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 the ?Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit 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." reports AL(dot) com. That sum likely also includes a lawsuit by the ‎ACLU? for segregating inmates with HIV. Righteous lawsuits litigated in just courts matter.

    January is our month for new beginnings. We'll discuss pardons, paroles, and successful re-entry this month at Human Rights Demand and at National Network in Action (NNIA1). Please participate!

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org, 6/19/15, Demanding More Paroles

    in Politics Progressive

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Organization demand more pardons and paroles, especially among inmates who have served their minimum sentences every Friday at 3pmEST. Call-in at (347)857.3293. They also demand compassionate releases for sick and elderly inmates, relief from excessive sentencing, and new trials for people with late-arriving evidence of innocence.

    Diaz reports that inmates are imprisoned for years and even decades beyond their minimum sentences and that paroles are sometimes being revoked on false allegations. For instance, one man's parole was revoked based on the falsehood that he had moved without giving the Florida DOC a new address, when the man had not moved. He was working for a hotel company doing heating and air repairs and would often need to stay out of town. He presented proof that he had not moved by receipts from utility companes and affidavits from his neighbors, but apparently the prison needed someone with his skills as a free laborer. The man is now 74 years of age and had been released from prison for 19 years, living a peaceful, productive life but was re-imprisoned based on a lie and a fraud on taxpayers who pay roughly $20,000 per year to imprison this innocent man.

    The Pardons and Paroles Board often rejects parole for inmates without giving any reason having to do with community safety. Americans pay over $100 billion to warehouse prisoners, most of whom are incarcerated for nonviolent offenses, which boosts prison profits for private prison investors in government positions, including legislators, Justice Department personnel, judges, prosecutors, crime lab technicians, pardons and parole board members, and even defense attorneys. Stop conflicts of interest by demanding that nobody who works in criminal justice positions or their spouses and children may own private prison stock

    Shocking Story: Learn how an African man was used as a human zoo spectacle

    in Education

    Call in to learn how Black Lives have been "caged" for entertainment since the turn of the century.  Bars by any name...are a prison...and a cage. Join host Dr. Sonia Banks, Chair, Manhattan Chapter, NCBW for our Leadersatplay Education Series. Meet an award-winning journalist, Pamela Newkirk, as she reveals a little-known and shameful episode in American history, when an African man was used as a human zoo exhibit—a shocking story of racial prejudice, science, and tragedy in the early years of the twentieth century in the tradition of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Devil in the White City, and Medical Apartheid.  In 1904, Ota Benga, a young Congolese “pygmy”—a person of petite stature—arrived from central Africa and was featured in an anthropology exhibit at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Two years later, the New York Zoological Gardens displayed him in its Monkey House, caging the slight 103-pound, 4-foot 11-inch tall man with an orangutan.

    Ralph Poynter What's Happening, July 28, 2015, Anatomy of Oppression, Part 5

    in Politics Progressive

    "Ralph PoynterWhat's Happening" episode for Tuesday, July 28, 2015. Phone (347)857.3293 to participate in live broadcasts. You are free to also listen by phone as well as by Internet. Shows are archived for future listening, so please share the link.


    THIS TUESDAY, JULY 28, 2015, 9pmEST
     
    ANATOMY OF OPPRESSION –PART IV
    We supposedly have the inalienable right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but Black and Brown people live now and have always lived under and around arbitrary authority that is white authority. Control of education is an integral part of democratic organization - a very natural and obvious structure. Community control of police is against the organization of government control from the top down.

    Jim Crow is not dead but alive and well and growing by the minute. The question for our next broadcast is...Do we have the emotional capacity to deal with this reality?

    This week we will revisit the COMMUNITY CONTROL struggle for education and the NYC 20 billion dollar school budget as it relates to the reality of our struggle against oppression for freedom and liberation.

    “CATS DON’T EDUCATE MICE; THEY EAT THEM.” - Ralph Poynter

    A youth on Twitter sent this tweet: "#If I die in police custody. Tell my family I loved them. But don't listen to their calls for peace. BURN THIS *** DOWN TO THE GROUND!"
