Call-In Day for Russell Maroon Shoats

Russell Maroon Shoats is a political prisoner being
held in the control unit of SCI Greene, a supermax
prison in western Pennyvania. Russell was a founding
member of Philadelpia's Black Unity Council which
eventually merged with the Black Panther Party. While
a member of the Philadelphia Panther chapter Russell
was arrested and tried for the murder of a police
officer. He received an unfair trial, and without
adequate legal representation he received two life
sentences. Russell has spent twenty-three of his
twenty-seven years in prison in a lock-down sensory
deprivation unit.
