       Maroon the Implacable- Los Angeles Book Launch
      Thursday, June 27th
      6:30pm
      Southern California Library
      6120 S Vermont, LA 90044 (between
      Slauson & Gage)
       Please join us for the launch of "Maroon
      the Implacable"; the collected writings of political prisoner Russell “Maroon”
      Shoatz. (Venue changed from original location at Immanuel
      Presbyterian)

      Russell "Maroon" Shoatz  is a former leader of the Black
      Panther Party and the Black Freedom Movement who was originally imprisoned in
      January 1972 for actions relating to his political involvement. With an
      extraordinary thirty-plus years spent in solitary confinement­including the past
      twenty-three years continuously­Maroon’s case is one of the most shocking
      examples of U.S. torture of political prisoners, and one of the most egregious
      examples of human rights violations regarding prison conditions anywhere in the
      world.

      Speakers Include: Theresa Shoatz (daughter of Russell Maroon
      Shoatz and part of the Campaign to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz), Rene Valdez
      (organizer for the Campaign to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz), Black Riders
      Liberation Party and Eric Mann (Director of the Labor/Community Strategy
      Center).


      Sponsored by the Labor/Community Strategies Center and
      Fight for the Soul of the Cities
      Endorsed by the Black Riders,
      Inter-Communal Solidarity Committee and the Global Women’s Strike

      (Look
      for a review of Maroon's book in the new issue of Turning the Tide: Journal of
      Anti-Racist Action, Research & Education)
