Khalfani’s Fundraiser Update

Hello Friends and Comrades,

Khalfani posing with the shirt with his son King Dion (2017)

For six months I was restricted from having access to my J-pay account, due to taking a picture with the t-shirt on in memory of my son King Dion. For that I was given a conduct report, and they confiscated the t-shirt with my sons face on it.

Thank you for donations to my freedom: we have been able to launch an investigation into some new matters that where never presented during trial, that constitute newly discovered evidence.

There will be additional cost needed to fully retain John Tompkins as my full-time attorney. So please continue to show your support financially and in any other way possible, to ensure my freedom can be certain in the near future.

With all of my love I send to you and I ask you to continue to stand by my side in this fight, because I can not do it alone. As of right now I have been in prison for 31 years, and the majority of my family are deceased so its hard to do this by myself. I welcome your love, talents, commitment, and love for the struggle. As I continue to believe that my freedom is possible.

I would like for you to show your love to Annabelle (webmanager) who has been vigilant in supporting my Friends and Family Campaign to Free Khalfani Malik Khaldun.

Much thanks and love
your comrad Khalfani Malik Khaldun.

Pushing the Clemency Card: The Case for Khalfani Malik Khaldun

Pushing the Clemency Card:
The Case for Khalfani Malik Khaldun

Following the Strategic Release Plan of Amend The 13th: Abolish Legal Slavery in Amerika Movement.

The Friends and Family Campaign to free Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun, IDOC-Watch, Amend The 13th, Central Texas ABC & Paralegal Services, South Chicago ABC, and IWOC-Indiana: Collectively due to their activism to bring home our ageing political prisoners and prisoners of war, stand together to compel the people and its representative body, the government, to consider the release of our comrades.

Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun in 2017

This portfolio is solely compiled for Indiana Political Prisoner Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun.

The Indiana Department of Corrections for many decades has operated on a stiff riged system of barbaric oppression. The courts acting as an auction block, and prison replacing the plantations. Rarely does a single prisoner in this state receive a clemency release. So we want to be the individuals who influence the state and IDOC to Amend this policy and upon a careful review of our demands/protest, release Bro. Khalfani Malik Khaldun from their plantations’ custody home to us.

Special mention goes to Comrade Annabelle who has been involved in prison activism for many years, who lives in The Netherlands. She reached out recently to help Khalfani, encouraging the formulation of this address: pushing the clemency card. You have been a great help and source of encouragement in our fight to free Khalfani. Thank you for everything.

The system of control permanently locks a huge percentage of the New Afrikan Community out of the mainstream society and economy. The system operates throught the criminal justice institutions, but it functions more like a caste system than a system of crime control. Like Jim Crow and slavery, mass incarceration operates as a tightly networked system of laws, policies, customs, and institutions that operate collectively to ensure the subordinate status of a people defined largely by race.

The power lies in the hands of People. We are unafraid to expose white supremacy and corruption within this empire’s entire infrastructure. This monster has to be surrounded from all angles in a collective-struggle-approach. Together we can win.

Why should you join the call for Clemency as a Strategic Release plan for Bro. Khalfani Malik Khaldun?

Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun (Leonard Bernard McQuay) entered the I.D.O.C. in 1987 at the age of seventeen. He was in Highschool playing Highschool football. Born in Gary, Indiana, his parents gave birth to 8 children, including himself. Growing up in one prison environment or another for the past 30 years has been a constant and unavoidable struggle. Many would call it a complete nightmare.

In 1989 Khalfani Malik Khaldun did successfully complete and obtain his G.E.D.

Prison life for a Black 17-year old youngman would lead him to transform through the stages of political and dialectical growth and development. Encouraged by an older militant class of Rvolutionary Prisoners to study and read a host of political philosophy and New Afrikan nationalism / internationalist materials changed Khalfani in many ways, causing him to immediately abandon his criminal colonial impulses. Becoming a work in progress, an aspiring New Afrikan Revlutionary.

Inside U.S. prison plantations, prisoner activists and jailhouse lawyers become open targets of those administrations/administration officials. Political Prisoners or Prisoners of War (P.O.W.). Khalfani Malik Khaldun has chosen to embrace the life of a Servant of the People. A life full of harassment, being targeted by the oppressors. For 30 years Khalfani has been experiencing a transformation into a new man.

This is why we support Khalfani’s release:

No matter what losses, disappointments, good or bad came his way, he has never stopped fighting or progressing.

– In 1989 Khalfani obtained his G.E.D.

– Khalfani has become a fluent writer and poet, having authored many articles and poems. Some of these can be read on this site: Between the Bars: https://betweenthebars.org/blogs/408/khalfani-malik-khaldun

– While held in solitary confinement Khalfani completed / graduated from Federal Emergency Management courses, Religious Enlightenment courses, all available Anger-management courses, Life Skills courses, Rehabilitative courses, and some other self-improvement work over the period of 20 years that he was held in solitary confinement units.

– Khalfani has drawn up proposals sent to the Governor’s office and ranking officials in charge of the Indiana Dept. of Corruption, seeking to change oppressive conditions for all prisoners.

– Khalfani created a program called: Rehabilitative Redemption Violence Prevention Program, and he presented it to the facility heads at Wabash Correctional Facility, hoping to have it approved to curtail building violence at the prison.

– Khalfani has authored very articulate articles in various leftwing publications such as:

the San Francisco Bayview, Nation Time News, Anti-Racist Action News, The Revolutionary Worker, The Indianapolis Recorder, etc. covering prison issues on oppression, slavery, political prisoners, prisoners of war, and Universal Solidarity, on a national and international level (in 2012).

– Khalfani wrote a play called A Solitary Confinement Cell in a Supermax Prison, at the request of comrades at Prison Health News. Out of 12 contestants, his play won 1st place.

– In 2013 Khalfani submitted a re-entry proposal and contract for Gradual Release for Prisoners including himself from Solitary Confinement to be released to General Population. The proposal was approved.

– In 2013 Khalfani completed and graduated a ten week course on anger-management and criminal thinking, culminating 20 individual courses.

– In 2010 Khalfani completed a program called Actions, Consequences and Treatment (A.C.T.), an incentive-based life-skills program that lasted one year, earning over 23 certificates.

– On 11-20-2014 Khalfani completed the S.T.A.N.D.-program: Striving Towards A New Direction, while housed at the Newcastle Correctional Facility. The next day he was released from 20 years of solitary confinement, out into General Population at Wabash Correctional Facility.

– Since 2014 Khalfani has organized Study groups/classes to help young prisoners enhance their lives inside the prison environment.

– Khalfani is currently getting ready to present the Khalfani Malik Khaldun Anti-Gang Educational Initiative, to local boys and girls clubs and detention centers in the Mid-West.

– Khalfani is currently preparing to publish his first Real Book: Like Father Like Son. This is a story about his life and love for his son, King Dion. His son was shot and he later died on September 21, 2014. This book will be his labor of Love.

– Khalfani has helped prisoners who are being denied proper medical treatment get support, to compel the medical department to act.

– Khalfani has stood in solidarity with the Muslim prisoners who were experiencing discrimination from the prisoncrats. That helped to get better food during the Month of Ramadan, which is the yearly 30-day fast for Muslims.

– Inside the Indiana Dept. Of Corrections Khalfani helped prisoners in any way that he can.

The Indiana Department of Corrections population is expected to grow:

Year –  Population – Capacity

2016 – 28,561 – 28,825

2017 – 29,180 –  28,825

2018 – 30,269 –  28,825

2019 – 31,627 –  28,825

Campaign to Free Bro. Khalfani Malik Khaldun, 10-31-2017

Friends and Family Campaign to Free Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun

Help us Support the Campaign:

On 8-3-2017, Khalfani Malik Khaldun (Leonard McQuay 874304) was targeted by prisoncrats at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility. They suspended his account to send emails and pictures to family, friends, supporters, by way of Jpay.com.

So (for the next 90 days) he can only send letters and make phone calls until November 3, 2017.

The reason they are enforcing this policy is that Khalfani took a picture wearing a prison-bought teeshirt, memorializing his deceased son “King Dion,” using Jpay to send a picture to Janae Kennedy his daughter. Doing so obviously violated a Jpay rule. This comes on the heels of a future pending fundraiser to secure the money for our lawyer to promote that the trumped-up charges against Khalfani be overturned.

We are clling on everyone to take a few minutes to write to Khalfani and express solidarity with his Campaign. Show the prisoncrats that the suspension can’t stop the Love and Support we have for Khalfani. He cannott receive cards, or any mail on color stationary. All letters have to be on white lined paper. He can receive up to 25 pictures at one time. Any campaign contribution can be sent through the paypal account brokhalfani@gmail.com, or via postal moneyorder to:
Campaign Coordinator (Indiana) Janae Kennedy
P.O. Box 152
Fishers, IN 46038

Attached is the suspension memo and a picture of Khalfani wearing the t-shirt [not enclosed] . Prison investigators confiscated the t-shirt on 8/4/17.

For those of you who have contributed to the Campaign already we send our THANK YOU’s and Love and Solidarity. All Solidarity is appreciated.

All power to the People.

We can bring Khalfani home by building a massive Collective Workshop for his Total Freedom.

A message to Indiana’s Black Lives Matter chapters and allied organizations calling for an organized united front

Despite my body being held inside these plantations of the Indiana Department of Corruption for the past 30yrs, my spirit, soul, heart and mind…have been free.

I have sacrificed my life, my time, and my energy to ensure other convicts are treated with care and humanity.

No matter what retaliation was launched against me, I have fed, clothed, saved and educated multiple prisoners who had no outside support, never asking for or wanting anything in return because this is the life I have chosen as a revolutionary.

I have held on, stood strong, fought to maintain my own sanity and morality. Stood tall and struggled to resist being dehumanized, while forced to watch all my family die or be killed in these colonial street’s of america. My own only son King Dion Toney was murdered in 2014. Wow! Can any of you imagine what that did to me?

I am reaching out to you seeking your support. If there is any one deserving of it, it is me. Because I have earned that. Twenty years held in solitary confinement has left me fighting severe depression. Your immediate aid and support could help free me. Does this Black revolutionary life matter? My hope is weakening, My spirit is losing its energy. I am growing pessimistic by the hour.

Will you build a united front to strengthen the Family and Friends Campaign to Free Brother Khalfani Malik Khaldun? These years and time have been eating away at my flesh like a feasting cannibal. How can I know thousands of people or have hundreds of friends on FB, yet go hungry and be unable to buy a bar of soap to wash my body with. Haven’t seen a letter in months. Where is the love?

The struggle continues…

Power Concedes Nothing Without a Demand: We need your help in demanding Khalfani’s contact visits returned!

A thank you message for your solidarity, and a request for help, by political prisoner Khalfani Malik Khaldun

Recently i sought your help to get immediate attention and help for an African prisoner from Niger, Africa, his name is Manan Basheer. Thanks to you, he has been seen by health care specialists and is now being treated kindly. The assistent superintendent visited the unit and notified us that multiple calls has been made on his behalf. They are on notice, thank yall very much. I need you to support an effort for me.

Back in Jan. 2017 the prison officials filed a charge against me claiming i refused to submit to a drug screening. However i did provide a sample for the test kit. When i did, the officer, a sgt. Bourland, stated it was an inadequate sample. I was advised that a second test would be orderd the next day. Instead of running the second test, he filed a conduct report against [me], case no. WVD17-01-0013. I requested evidence that supports my innocence, which is my due process right.

[Due to this unjust conduct report, Khalfani has lost his contact visits!]

These are the following things that i request:

1. A picture of the urine sample to prove that i gave one. They refused to provide it.

2. I request a statement from officer EWERS who was the eyewitness of the urine sample being provided which they refused to provide.

3. The sgt Bourland did not follow proper procedure for conducting the urinanalysis test pursuant to policy 01-02-107.

I demand that this case be reopened and that my contact visits be restored.

My name: LEONARD MCQUAY, 874304. I am at: Wabash Valley C.F.

Please call or email the following on Khalfani’s behalf to get his due process in this case of the urine sample test, and his contact visits restored asap:

Stranger in a strange land

A stranger in a strange land around people who can not begin to know the hurt & pain that i have endured for 30 years of my incarceration. I would like for you to share this poem that was on my son’s obituary. This is how i feel today. I feel as if i dont want to spend another day in prison, thats what depression has done to me. Please let me know what you think about the poem here it is:

I’m Free

Photo of Khalfani holding his memorial for his son Dion,19-5-17

Khalfani holding his memorial for his son Dion, 19-5-17


Dont grieve for me for now i’m free.
I’m following the God laid for me.
I took his hand when i heard him call.
I turned my back & left it all.

I could not stay another day.
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I’ve found that peace at close of day.

If my parting has left a void.
Then fill it remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things i too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been full, I’ve savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me.
God wanted me now, he set me free.

Joining Hands for Just-Us: International Resistance Confronts Repression

 

A Solidarity message by Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun to the hunger strikers / resisters inside:

May 23, 2017

All Power To The People,

Repression is an expression of fascism at the hands of our kkkapitalist oppressors, who have been given charge of our care inside these prison plantations. But, instead of ensuring that we are given our civil and human rights according to the United States Constitution and other federal mandates, these prisoncrats are denying us our rights, and subjecting us to conditions tantamount to cruel and unusual punishment. We have no choice but to oppose this treatment by any means necessarry. “Repression breeds revolutionary resistence.”

The mindset of these oppressors is based on the greed of money at the expense of degradation to the human being, human soul, & human spirit. Our lives and the hurt it causes our families, mean nothing to these prisoncrats. Giving in or giving up isn’t an option, so our choice is to stand, even when standing comes with a equal return of great repression. We must resist or die trying. We will rather live on our feet then die on our knees. This press release comes after word came to me on the resistance occuring inside these plantations around the world. So, its only right that i declare my solidarity and encourage our comrads engaged in this collective effort to confront & oppose terrible living condition in prison. On this day i join my hands and shoulders for Just-Us for and with:

1. The supportive message from prisoners in the Phillipines

2. The Pelican Bay Souljahs resisting

3. The immigrant resistance at the northwest detention center (WA)

4. Muslem Prisoners/comrads Guantanamo Bay

5. Allah-U-Akbar to freedom fighter 1,500 Palestinians held in Israeli prisons stand against violations of the fourth Geneva convention. All praise be to Allah

6. Female comrads of (CCWP) California Coalition for Women Prisoners.

7. Our solidarity with the resistance in Athens Greece, Australia, Canada, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Serbia, United Kingdom, Mexico.

Comrades, in the spirit of George Jackson and Tookie Williams and our other contemporaries. We are not made by history, we create it. We are the only ones capable of eradicating this plague of massive incarceration. So instead of just laying down with conditions progressively getting worse, as revolutionaries we’ve decided to resist. This requires the revolutionary organization of the people. So here i am. I am we.

Thanks to comrade Annabelle for the release of this message- Join her in building a solid organization for Amend the 13th (Amendthe13th.org), and support the Millions for Prisoners Human Rights March-movement

Revolutionary Greetings, Comrades of this National & International Struggle,

Picture of Bro Khalfani Malik Khaldun

Bro Khalfani in April of 2017

My name is Bro. Khalfani Malik Khaldun (Leonard McQuay 874304). I have been confined inside the Indiana Department of Corruption since 1987, 30 years. I am 48 years old, embrace the national identity as a New Afrikan Man. Between the years 1994 thru 2004 I was liberated to political consciousness, transforming myself and my actions to be a reflection of Comrade George L. Jackson, Che Guevara, Malcolm X, Tookie Williams, Nat Turner, and so many Revolutionary Influences. Charged with the death of a state prison officer who was stabbed December 13, 1994. Charged, and later found guilty to a 60 year sentence in 2001, my prisoncrat captors kept me in Solitary Confinement for 20 straight years from 1994-2014.

On November 21, 2014, i was finally released to General Population at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility. Since my arrival, the prisoncrats have worked overtime to re-segregate me. The Commissioner of the Indiana Dept. of Corruption ordered me placed in Solitary Confinement on August 19, 2016, in association with the days of the National Prison Protest. They confiscated over 500 calls for protest letters sent to Prison Comrades through the facility. They held me under investigation for 28 days. They placed outside comrades on Gate Closure, so they cannot come visit me anymore.

Do you want to aid my struggle or join my Freedom Campaign, you can write me and check out my crowdfunding campaign by support: https://fundly.com/campaign-to-free-brother-khalfani.

Comrade Annabelle sent me flyers on their organization Amend The 13th: Abolish Legal Slavery in Amerika Movement  by founder Heshima Denham. I support them fully in their efforts to confront white supremacy in the U.S. Constitution. We must stand by her and this Movement, count me in. She also informed me about the collective efforts of Millions 4 Prisoners March scheduled to kick off on August 19th, 2017 in Washington, DC and locally. This is extemely encouraging and has the (Grade A) potential to build off the back of the last massive hunger strike in California and abroad, and also, the recent September Prison Slave Labor Resistance. So again this serves as my Salutation and Solidarity with this planned event.

I just completed The Khalfani Malik Khaldun Anti-Gang Youth Educational Initiative. I am calling on testimonials from Conscious Prison Revolutionaries: 2 pages front and back for my Saving Ourselves message to the youth booklet connected to this initiative packet. All positive words welcomed.
Power to the People. Free the Land. Amend the 13th Amendment.

In Stiff Resistance,

Bro. Khalfani Malik Khaldun
