Update on Bomani's Appeal Case

Judges recently issued a filing deadline of Oct 1st for briefs in his appeal case. This deadline may be delayed. Bomani is facing the death penalty, his appeals are further along than any other death sentenced prisoner from the uprising. The judges and magistrates have thus far ignored sound legal arguments supporting Bomani's innocence. He is being railroaded in the most racist federal district in Ohio, and this deadline brings him one step closer to the end of the line.

Please write Bomani a letter of support and prepare to help us pack a courtroom when it reaches oral arguments in the spring. Lets derail that train.
