Support blog for the 6 prisoners who, when they were locked up in SCI Dallas, PA, protested in a nonviolent way against Human Rights Abuses in 2010, by covering their windows. They stand accused of something they did not do, yet Human Rights of prisoners at SCI Dallas (and in other Solitary Confinement units in PA) are still being violated on a daily basis.
We say: Drop the charges against the "Dallas 6"...
Stop Human Rights Abuses, Stop Torture and Stop Racism!
Andre Jacobs, Duane Peters, Carrington Keys at court.
Andre Jacobs was illiterate when he entered adult prison at the age of 15 on what was supposed to be a 10-year maximum sentence. Self-taught, Andre earned his G.E.D. and a paralegal degree and used his newly acquired skills to protect himself and vulnerable men around him from human rights violations committed by Department of Corrections staff. Locked in solitary confinement since 2001 as punishment for his advocacy, Andre says he “saw so many prisoners killed by the system, I don’t even count anymore.” He has suffered extreme instances of brutality and persecution, resulting in additional years being added to his original sentence. Despite these attacks, Andre prevailed against his oppressors in the biggest lawsuit ever won by a prisoner acting as his own attorney in Pennsylvania history; making him deeply feared by top prison officials throughout the state.
