Last year on the 25th anniversary the State of Ohio silenced me and my comrades whom are on death row from any communication with the outside world. Afraid our message of truth justice and equality for all would be too radical, as a result, our comrades Ben Turk and Joyce Jones was barred from our visit list. Siddique Hasan has been put on extended communications restrictions and Bomani Shakur (aka Keith LaMar) has officially been given a execution date. I’ve finally been transferred out of Youngstown only to find that the van carrying me out of Youngstown carried a load of ideas on how this prison in Toledo could further harass me.
Just a year ago we recognized 25 years since America’s longest prison riot. By now most of you know the details of the event that immediately brought in a unyielding era of state oppression from the selection of judges, and prosecutors to bribing witnesses to lie on us all while being harassed and assaulted by prison staff. Harassment that has been constant for 26 years now for those of us that speak out, that refuse 2 accept unjust verdicts as legally binding.
Through cell shakedowns, book censorship, lengthy delays in email processing if the email contain any mention of how we can fight the system. I’ve been under constant ”investigation” for 26 years. Now yet still I must march forth and I need the support, wisdom, connections of those of you you there that recognize enough is enough. Silence is complicity! To the victorious brothaz known as the vaugn17, yes the criminal trials are over, yes the loss of your property, the prison transfers, delay in mail deliveries, staff harassment, maximum penalties for minor rule violationsis all part of state oppression designed to test your will.
There is a group of us here in Ohio that has had to deal with this 26 years and counting one of my co-defendants passed away this year while being held hostage. Don’t be surprised, be prepared. Share your experience with young soldiers so they will know what can be gained, and be honest about the pain. The pain of accepting oppression and the pain of fighting it. Be clear this struggle is happening whether we acknowledge it or not, oppression knows no boundaries has no limits, it aims to control our actions and reactions. Prepare soldiers you’re proud to have in the trenches with you, comrades. Reflections 26 years after the fall and mental rising lets get free!!!
Greg, Annabelle and Mosi hereby launch the Legal Trustfund for our Campaign to get Justice for Greg Curry.
Offline donations are welcome too! Plz contact us (see below).
Greg Curry’s cause is pure and simple justice: a fair, impartial hearing which is long overdue.
The money we raise will be used for investigative work and legal representation by an attorney.
The expenses, the filing decisions will all be posted.
The fund will be held in a Trust-account.
Numerous times Greg attemted to receive justice by filing pro-se motions with help of jailhouse lawyers. The proper judicial arguments are present in his case, but those legalities must be brought before the Court by an experienced attorney.
This is why Greg seeks your help, the help from the people who care to see justice-for-all be a reality for all.
Large or small donations all help, as well as recommending to others you know make a donation, or that attorneys donate their time. You can also make a donation via other means than this (contact us via this or email or facebook, see below) we will then add it to the “offline contributions.”
Greg recently sent us a video, recorded via Jpay, in which he announces our upcoming Fundraiser for his case of innocence. It is high time we found a dedicated lawyer, whom we have to pay, who is willing to fight for Greg, in order to overturn the wrongful conviction in the courts.
The Lucasville prison riot (or uprising or disturbance) of 1993 resulted not only in the death of prisoners and staff, but also in false arrests, indictions, and the use by the prosecution of state snitches, used to convict 5 people to death (the spokespeople who tried to intervene, not the actual people who did the killings!!) and at least 4 received a life sentence. One of them is Greg Curry, who at the time was not involved with any of the riots, but a snitch was instructed to get a conviction on Greg.
It is high time that these false convictions are overturned!! Let’s do it.
Greg Curry, November 12th, 2017:
Hello there everyone, this is my website that has supported me over the years.
It looks like this time is coming to an end: I’ll be transferred to a different prison.
So I just want to say thank you all for your support, and I’m gonna need yoru continued support as we build this legal defense fund, and the details of that is coming soon.
Thank you. Solidarity with all of you struggling for freedom and justice.
People, we need some combined unified help for Greg Curry and his brothers (for instance Derek Cannon) who are still serving (life) sentences following the 1993 Lucasville prison disturbance, even though he and the others had nothing to do with it but were mentioned by informants who wanted an easier way out, helped by prosecutors who did not care about the truth.
Let’s all work together on getting Greg and the others released! This is not easy, and innocence projects mostly take (easier) DNA cases, but together we can do more than all people apart. So if you want to help, brainstorm, write , or have an idea for Greg, Derek Cannon and others, get in touch with Greg (facebook, Jpay e-messages and normal correspondence), thank you!!
