Russell ‘Maroon’ Shoatz


This month, a 30-day action campaign was launched demanding the release of Russell “Maroon” Shoatz from solitary confinement, where he has been held for over 23 consecutive years—and 28 of the last 30 years in Pennsylvania prisons. The veteran Black Panther is considered by his supporters to be a “prisoner of war.” Angola 3 News interviews his daughter Theresa Shoatz, and Matt Meyer, co-coordinator of the Campaign to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz.
