Help Ramsey Orta, imprisoned copwatcher who filmed Eric Garner’s death, make parole

You can sign a community letter in support of his parole application here:

Thank you all so much for your support of my partner Ramsey Orta over the past few years.

Five years after NYPD suffocated Eric Garner to death on a sidewalk in Staten Island, New York, Ramsey, who filmed the incident, is the only person who has faced any consequences.

Since 2016, Ramsey has been imprisoned in New York, where he continues to endure retaliation for sharing his video of NYPD officers killing Eric Garner. This recent article shows what Ramsey is experiencing while incarcerated. Currently, Ramsey is in solitary confinement.

In mid-August 2019, Ramsey will appear before the Parole Board for a hearing on his early release. To support Ramsey’s release on parole, please read and sign the letter below. In early August, we will send the letter to the New York State Parole Board with the signatures of everyone who signs on.

Ramsey deserves to be free. I need him to come home. If you agree, please sign onto the letter below by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.

You can additionally support Ramsey in these ways:

In struggle, Deja

P.S. As of today, July 30th, over 1,000 people have signed the community letter for Ramsey’s early release. This means so much to Ramsey and me. The letter will be available to sign through Sunday, August 4th, so please continue to share it with your friends and family. Thank you!

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."
