This won’t be the first time they use a Friday evening transfer to the hole to try to silence Hasan. Back in 2016, they manufactured blatantly false and racist accusations about Hasan attempting to recruit an outside faith leader for a suicide bombing plot. bit.ly/2cl4O2p
*UPDATE: according to Grant Horton, public relations person for ODRC, Hasan is charged with “leading and inciting a disturbance or riot, unauthorized business operations, and misuse of phones.” Grant also claimed that Hasan said to them that he’s the leader and organizer of a prison strike in Ohio. If officials engage with you in any kind of back and forth, please stress that speaking about a strike over the phone is not a business operation or inciting a riot. State that you endorse local strike demands and that you honor the agency of incarcerated people to achieve those demands.
Call Ohio State Penitentiary at 330-743-0700 and ask to speak to Warden Richard A. Bowen, Jr.
SAMPLE SCRIPT: “Hello, I’m concerned about Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan. His number is R130559 and I’m calling because there is no justification for putting him in the hole.
