Virginia Department of Corrections: Stop the harassment of Kevin Rashid Johnson!

We the undersigned add our voices to those of Supporting Prisoners and Acting for Radical Change in demanding that the staff of Wallens Ridge State Prison, Red Onion State Prison and the Virginia Department of Corrections (VDOC) cease their consistent campaign of targeted physical violence, harassment, and administrative repression against the cadre of the New African Black Panther Party-Prison Chapter specifically Kevin “Rashid” Johnson and Kelvin “Khaysi” Canada which is clearly being carried out with the intention of suppressing the basic human and democratic rights of prisoners in VDOC facilities. Furthermore, we support Rashid’s request to be transferred to a less hostile environment, for instance either Sussex One or Sussex Two state prison.
