Dr. Mutulu Shakur August 2022 Health and Legal Update

The fact that Mutulu is held in prison at this stage in his life and with his current medical condition is a clear violation of his rights. His legal team is filing a habeas petition in Kentucky to challenge his continuing imprisonment in that state. This is a lawsuit against the warden at FMC Lexington, the Chair of the Parole Commission and the Hearing Examiner who conducted the latest parole hearing because denying him release is “arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of discretion.”

Mutulu’s health continues to be dire, and Bureau of Prison doctors have given him less than six months to live. Multiple myeloma is incurable, and Mutulu was diagnosed with this in 2019. That diagnosis probably would have come sooner had it not been for bureaucratic delays in diagnostic testing of the bone pain he had been experiencing for some time. Now, despite radiation, different types of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant, the cancer continues to grow.

‘Compassionate release’ or reduction of sentence exists to allow for people to spend their final days outside the confines of prison. It is inhumane that the Bureau of Prisons and the Parole Commission continue to deny Mutulu release, yet the sentencing judge Charles Haight still has the power to grant him compassionate release. We thank everyone for signing the online petition to show not only the Bureau of Prisons and the Parole Commission, but also Judge Haight, that there are over 60,000 people supporting his release.

Support Clemency for Dr. Mutulu Shakur!

Dr. Mutulu Shakur is a political prisoner, sentenced to 60 years in prison because of actions motivated by his political beliefs. He was targeted and victimized by the FBI’s now-infamous Counter-Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) as early as 1968. Dr. Shakur has served over 30 years in prison, and is currently suffering from multiple myeloma (advanced bone marrow cancer). He has been denied parole 9 times and was recently denied a compassionate release.

Friends and Family of Dr. Mutulu Shakur has started a new campaign seeking Mutulu’s release by President Biden. We will be submitting a legal clemency petition to the President on Mutulu’s behalf, and this public petition is an important part of the campaign. We want to show the President that Mutulu has community — friends, family, and supporters — who will welcome him home.

Please sign the new petition for Mutulu’s release via Presidential clemency:
https://campaigns.organizefor.org/petitions/support-parole-and-compassionate-release-for-dr-mutulu-shakur

After you've signed the petition please also take a moment to share it widely with your friends and networks.
