Spirit of Mandela
Spirit of Mandela is a campaign to bring international attention to U.S. violations of the human rights of U.S. held political prisoners. In addition to requesting that the International Commission of Jurists return to visit our political prisoners, we are organizing an International Tribunal on this issue in 2021.
INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNAL – OCT. 2021
The Spirit of Mandela engages in different areas of work.
We have the key legal international documents regarding the treatment of prisoners and political prisoners including the United Nations Nelson Mandela Rules, the 1979 Report of the International Commission of Jurists, the trifold containing the original proposal from Political Prisoner Jalil Muntaqim to bring back the international jurists and more.
Our coalition is working on holding an international tribunal on U.S human rights violations of Political Prisoners in 2021. As an example, the U.S. is violating international law in its deliberate refusal to provide adequate medical care to our political prisoners. Another example is the use of extended solitary confinement–in the case of Albert Woodfox for 40 years!
We are a coalition currently consisting of several organizations including (list in formation): National Jericho Movement (all chapters), Campaign to Bring Mumia Home, Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (ILPDC), Lynne Stewart Organization, New Abolitionist Movement, North East Political Prisoner Coalition (NEPPC), ProLibertad Freedom Campaign, Resistance in Brooklyn, and Universal Zulu Nation.
We bring people together.
Our coalition has many diverse organizations and people united in concern for the human rights of U.S. held political prisoners.
There are political prisoners in the U.S. Learn more here.
Not political theory, just the facts and campaigns. We do the work.
