Freedom For Jennifer Rose Call for Court Support
Jennifer Rose, an anarchist and trans prisoner who has been held captive by the state of California for over 30 years, has a court date for resentencing coming up at the Sacramento Superior Court House on September 6th. Jennifer was originally imprisoned for armed robberies before becoming politicized through participating in the 1991 Folsom Prison hunger strike. She was later convicted of taking part in armed resistance, attacking a district attorney prosecutor and associate warden of the prison, and was sentenced to multiple 25 years-to-life sentences under California’s three-strikes law. Jennifer now qualifies for a sentence reduction under California’s Prop 36, and early release under Prop 57 that just passed in 2016.
RAM-NYC stands in solidarity with Jennifer Rose, a comrade who has remained firm in her resistance to the system of prison slavery, continuing to struggle for dignity and freedom, despite facing over ten years of solitary confinement and torture by the pigs. We send our support to Jennifer and encourage all those who can attend her upcoming resentencing date in Sacramento to pack the court room.
Freedom for Jennifer Rose and all anarchist prisoners!
