Release Major Tillery (AM 9786) from Solitary Confinement!
Major Tillery filed grievances and complained about a painful, itchy skin ailment plaguing himself and many prisoners, including Mumia Abu-Jamal at SCI Mahanoy. Major Tillery confronted SCI Mahanoy's Superintendent John Kerestes about Mumia Abu-Jamal’s condition and asked if the prison was going to let Mumia die. In retaliation for his acts of solidarity and human compassion, Major Tillery was transferred out of SCI Mahanoy general population to SCI Frackville and then put in solitary confinement for six months at SCI Frackville on bogus charges. Major Tillery has been in “the hole” since April 30, without contact visits, commissary, or even phone calls! Demand the DOC release Major Tillery from solitary confinement, NOW.
