Happy birthday, dear M44710: support Jay Chase!

Jay birthday

In May 2012, as part of the general post-occupy crackdown on anarchists and radicals, undercover coppers infiltrated protests against NATO in Chicago and manipulated three people into making molotov cocktails. The NATO 3 received hefty prison sentences, and Jay Chase is still inside today. He’s had a rough time of it recently, having been diagnosed with Hepatitis C and Huntingdon’s disease, and while he’d earned some time off his sentence for good behaviour, he’s now lost a year of that time again as a result of the fuss he’s had to make to try and get medical treatment. Jay’s support crew are calling for people to help him out:

Demand Jay Chase get medical care NOW

Call/fax/write and politely make the request that Jared Chase M44710 receive medical treatment for a broken nose sustained in December as well as treatment for Huntington’s Disease and Hepatitis C.

Michael Melvin, Acting Warden
Phone: (815) 842-2816  or  Fax: (815) 842-3420
Pontiac Correctional Center, POB 99, Pontiac, IL 61764

Help Jay get his good time reinstated NOW

Jay lost one full year of good time while being held in solitary confinement at Pontiac Correctional.

Please call, email or write the Illinois Department of Corrections and ask that they reinstate Jared’s good time so he can get out earlier than expected. Jared lost his good time by getting ‘tickets’ at Pontiac, a result of his constant demands for health care and treatment for his Huntington’s Disease and Hepatitis C.

3) Send Jay a birthday card by June 12th
Jay’s birthday is June 12th and it has been a very tough year for him.  Between being in a solitary cell all of the last year, getting indicted for assault on a guard, having his sentence extended by one year and losing a full year of good time, Jay sure can use some birthday cheer!

In the weeks to come, let’s flood Jay with birthday love. Please send Jay a card, a letter, some photos or even a book (though we understand he has tons at the moment).

Send books via amazon:
Send 99 cents postcards via flixshop https://www.flikshop.com/

Lets show the jailers how much support Jay has from our community and remind him we have his back through this sentence and beyond!

If you can please share the Birthday Blitz for Jay event on facebook and invite people: https://www.facebook.com/events/619609968192236/

As a note for people in the UK, standard postage times to the US from here are meant to be about 5-7 working days, plus getting through the scrutiny of prison staff might add on a few extra days, so if you want Jay to get your card by his birthday it’s probably wise to try and post it before the end of the month.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
