from Freedom Archives:
Sekou Kambui, freed after 40 years in prison at the end of June, sends his thanks, love, and appreciation to all his supporters. Unfortunately, he is currently in the hospital. A tumor was found that was partially obstructing his intestines and digestive process. He is undergoing further tests. Sekou will have surgery to remove the tumor next week. He says that he’s being treated well in the hospital, and looks forward to full recovery and a return to A-1 health.
A reminder – we raised close to $1000 for Sekou when he got out recently. You can still contribute. Make your checks out to William Turk and send them to The Freedom Archives at 522 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.
