Urgent Alert and Call To Action - Major Tillery In Hospital


 Sometime yesterday Major Tillery, a 65 year-old man, was rushed to the hospital from SCI Frackville. Since hearing this yesterday evening through the prison grapevine, family and attorney have tried to learn more. Today, the only thing we have been told by Superintendent Brenda Tritt is that this was “a routine admission” and Major is “receiving the appropriate medical attention.” 

Nothing more to to Major Tillery’s daughter, Kamilah Iddeen--not the hospital, the reason for rushing Major to the hospital, no agreement for family and legal visits. Major Tillery has liver disease and a liver shunt, arthritis with chronic back and hip pain, and a festering skin rash and open sores. 

Major Tillery has filed grievance after grievance objecting to the lack of medical treatment and refusal to renew needed medical devices. Major Tillery has been imprisoned for 30 years, 25 in the hole and in the most severe super max prisons in the country. For prison officials his crime is his advocacy for other prisoners and leadership capabilities, including challenging abusive prison conditions and inadequate medical treatment. He has been subject to retaliation by prison authorities since he began his successful legal effort to stop the overcrowding and curb the inhumane conditions in SCI Pittsburgh over 25 years ago. 
      See, Tillery v. Owens (1990)

In early 2015, Major complained about the spreading skin disease at SCI Mahanoy, where he was then imprisoned. He stood up for Mumia Abu-Jamal and other prisoners who were suffering from this. For his acts of solidarity, Major Tillery was transferred to SCI Frackville and then put in the hole on falsified charges. After four months with limited food rations, deprived of commissary, contact visits and allowed less than one-hour a day of exercise, Major was released into general population. This was two months less than his prison sentence of six months in the hole – the prison’s response to an international campaign for Major! 
Now Major is in the hospital!

He is not being allowed contact with his family or attorney. They are not being given any real information on his condition.

 Call prison officials and demand: 

  •       Visits with Major Tillery by his family and lawyer. Full       medical information and treatment should be provided to his family and lawyer. 
  •      Stop the Retaliation Against Major Tillery. He should be exonerated for the false charges of drug possession and this misconduct removed from his record. 
  •      Transfer Major Tillery from SCI Frackville back to SCI Mahanoy or to another facility in eastern Pennsylvania to remain near his family.

URGENT Call To Action!!

In order to further serve the Community and People, the Black Panther Party Cubs, an International Organiziation, has launched this fundraiser to raise $75,000 to provide a Black Panther Party Cubs Community Space and to continue the on-going work. 

We have seen our communities suffer and struggle with living in some of the communities harshest conditions. The need to offer a safe community and family space to organize within the community is urgent. With the continous violence that is being witnessed waged upon black and other oppressed communities of Chicago and elsewhere. The lack of community space as well as the lack of other resources has had a detrimental impact on the ability to provide programs, family projects, services and initiatives to the people. We have no other choice but to put this call out- this CALL TO ACTION - to support to create this revolutionary and innovative space for the community. 

The Black Panther Party Cubs have been working towards self-determination and hosting the Black Panther Party Cubs' Peoples Survival Programs: Implementing Safe Zones, Children/Community/Cubs, Free Food Programs, Clothing Drives, Political Education, One Prisoner One Contact Campaign, Community Outreach, as well as, other community initiatives and projects have been answering to the needs of the community but your help is needed to provide this much needed space. 

Whether it be in the Favelas, Cincinatti, New Orleans, Oakland California, Baltimore, Chicago, Furgeson or elsewhere throughout the World the Black Panther Party Cubs Crisis Response Team has answered the call. To the best of its capabilities, although with limited resources, the Black Panther Party Cubs respond to the Peoples needs.

Please donate $20, $50, $100, etc, what ever you can to support this Fundraiser Call-To-Action. 

 For additional options to donate contact: 

Thank you. Please share this site, video and information with friends, family and networks. This is how we will reach our goal.
