Robert Seth Hayes Facing Harassment

On November 11th political prisoner Robert Seth Hayes had his cell searched, and had several papers seized “for inspection.”

While no itemized list of seized documents was supplied to Seth (as the prisoncrats are supposed to do), amongst those items confiscated were the 2006 and 2007 Certain Days Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar on which Seth has worked.

A former member of the Black Panther Party who went underground in the early seventies, Seth has spent over thirty years in prison, having been convicted of the murder of a police officer in 1973. (It is worth noting that Seth has always maintained his innocence in this matter.)

While it is possible that this is a case of some power-tripping bullies in uniform, one always worries in the present political climate that it could be more.
