Author/Artist Rashid Johnson is (W/Yr Help) Out of Danger - Maybe...

Rashid called Prison Radio today with this new info.
He was transferred to Oregon. Guards came to his Wallens Ridge cell, shackled him and put him in a van (or ?) and drove him for two days (not telling him where he was going) to Wilsonville, Oregon, where he has been in a "holding cell" for one day in a receiving center, going through a "reception process", from which he will be transferred to another Oregon facility.
Here is his new i.d. number:  70384537 (he said this may change)
He has none of his personal belongings from Red Onion, including your address and phone number. He asks that you send these to him now.
He has a better means on calling people now with a prepaid debit account phone system. here is that number: 1-800-786-8521
There is a $25.00 initial minimum deposit, additional payments are $10.00 minimum. He will need to add phone numbers he wishes to call to a list soon.
Here is the address to write him (for 30 days):
Kevin Johnson
# 70384537
Coffee Creek Correctional Facility
24499 SW Grahams Ferry Rd.
Wilsonville, Oregon 97070

Rashid sounded positive about this transfer. The authorities told him it was a "brand new slate". He said he would be in "medium security, not maximum security". He said the authorities asked him how he was going to act. He got the impression that the Virgina prison authorities had told the Oregon people that he was a crazy, out-of-control, person. He said he would be in general population, "a whole new start."

Rashid indicated that phone and mail will be less restricted, than in Virginia. He can receive mail as long is it is less than 1/4 inch thick. He says he can receive books from the publishers (and probably Amazon, but he wasn't sure about that.) [Mumia cannot receive books from Amazon at SCI Mahanoy in Pennsylvania.]

His main request was for you to write him immediately with your address and phone number.

In Solidarity,

Canada vs. U.S. Justice Systems - Amazing Differences !

Compare THIS little gem w/ the US "Justice" System - where judges routinely hand out 10 and 15 year sentences for felons possessing a handgun !
Amazing the difference between here and the "Great White North", eh ?
Declaring that a three-year prison sentence for a man found with a loaded handgun would be ‘unfair, outrageous, abhorrent and intolerable,’ Madam Justice Anne Molloy of the Ontario Superior Court puts the judiciary on a collision course with the Harper government’s tough-on-crime agenda
