URGENT MEDICAL CAMPAIGN FOR PP ABDULLAH MAJID

PP/POW Abdullah Majid is in need of our help. Months ago we reported that he was experiencing excruciating pain from an attack of sciatica. He was scheduled to have back surgery in October of 2013, and was instructed to stop taking the ibuprofen medication he was using to alleviate some of the pain. During this time, the only remedy provided has been a too short cane given to him by the prison doctor, making it difficult for him to walk or lean on.

When the surgery was first postponed, Majid was told it was because he needed to have some pre-op medical tests. Those tests were performed, and he has seen a cardiologist and the doctor who is to perform the surgery.

As the days and months go by, his 90 year old Mother, Mrs. LaBorde, becomes more and more anxious and frustrated by the DOCCS lack of response to her concerns.

In addition, we just found out on Friday, March 28th, that Majid has been put in the SHU due to unfounded allegations against him by the DOCCS Muslim chaplain.

We ask you to contact DOCCS, the Superintendent at Elmira and Governor Andrew Cuomo to express your concerns about the continued negligence and disregard for Abdul Majid's health and medical well-being and to demand that he be released from SHU and that the surgery take place as soon as possible. Please be sure to give his name and DIN #: Abdullah Majid, DIN # 83-A-0483 when you call or write.
