Check out our latest release!

Herman's writ seeking a new trial was denied late Friday afternoon by the Louisiana State Supreme Court with no comment from the Court. The denial was no surprise to the A3 legal team and supporters who have become accustomed to injustice at the hands of State and local officials.

Robert Hillary King author and the only member of The Angola 3 to be freed from jail joins host Linda Olson-Osterlund to give an update on the cases of the A3 and to talk about prisons as modern slavery. Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox have spent 37 years in solitary confinement. Black Panther activists, convicted of a crime they did not commit they each have impending court cases that could free them. They along with Robert King also have a Federal Civil Rights lawsuit that could come down with a decision any day. Learn about these cases and more.

The Angola 3 and their supporters commemorate the anniversary of Katrina by remembering all those who died such needless deaths and acknowledging the suffering that continues to this day due to governmental neglect and deep-seated racism.

37 years ago in Louisiana, 3 young black men were silenced for trying to expose continued segregation, systematic corruption, and horrific abuse in the biggest prison in the US, an 18,000-acre former slave plantation called Angola. In 1972 and 1973 prison officials charged Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox, and Robert King with murders they did not commit and threw them into 6x9 ft. cells in solitary confinement, for over 36 years. Robert was freed in 2001, but Herman and Albert remain behind bars.

by

Together, Robert King, Albert Woodfox, and Herman Wallace have spent more than 100 years in solitary confinement.

They are known as the "Angola Three," a trio of political prisoners whose supporters include Amnesty International, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Congressman John Conyers, and the ACLU. Kgalema Mothlante, the President of South Africa says their case "has the potential of laying bare, exposing the shortcomings, in the entire U.S. system."

5th Circuit Denies Bail, But Expedites Appeal Lawyers: Disappointed with Ruling, But Optimistic the Fifth Circuit Will Affirm Judge Brady's Decision and Release Woodfox

From The International Coalition to Free the Angola 3

Hello all,

Last night I returned from two days of Angola visits and am happy to report that Herman and Albert look stronger and more adjusted to their new oppressive dungeon conditions than when we last saw them.  They both seem in good spirits and good health and remain optimistic about the appeal, even with the recent bail news.
