As we prepare to launch the In the Spirit of Nelson Mandela, Bring Back the International Jurists Campaign, we are providing links to some important documents.
One of these is the United Nations Mandela Rules, unanimously passed by the Security Council in December of 2015. Read the Mandela Rules. (https://spiritofmandela.org/images/Mandela_Rules.pdf)!
Another important document is Political Prisoner and Jericho Movement Co-Founder Jalil Muntaqim’s essay regarding the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and the International Jurists. Read the essay.
The ICJ visited various political prisoners in the United States in 1979, and submitted a detailed report of their interviews with these prisoners. At least two of those political prisoners, Sundiata Acoli and Ed Poindexter, are still in prison to this day. Read the Report of the International Jurists—Visit with Human Rights Petitioners in the United States, August 3-20, 1979.
