On October 21, 2016 Robert Earl Council (aka Kinetik Justice Amun) went on a Hunger Strike based on threats against his life from the Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC) administration and staff. He was transferred to a supermax facility, and water was shut off in his cell in an effort to force him out of his hunger strike. His transfers happened after the media exposed the ADOC during a nationwide prison strike to demand changes to prison conditions and unpaid labor.
As of November 3, 2016, Kinetik Justice is in danger for his life, and organizers are calling for action.
Kinetik has been inside for over 22 years and is a co-founder of the Free Alabama Movement which has organized successful work stoppages to demand basic human rights and has provided education and legal support to hundreds of incarcerated people.
DEMONSTRATION AT LIMESTONE, NOVEMBER 5: Free Alabama Movement, The Ordinary People Society, & the QUEEN Team are asking that everyone come out Saturday November 5th at 11:00 a.m. to Limestone Correctional Facility for an Emergency Protest to show support for Kinetik Justice.
CALL WITH DEMANDS TODAY: Call the Alabama Department of Corrections and Alabama Governor Robert Bentley’s office demanding 1) that Kinetik Justice be transferred from Limestone Correctional Facility; and 2) that Pastor Kenneth Glasgow of The Ordinary People’s Society be allowed to visit him and assess his condition immediately.
Governor Robert Bentley
