Seth Hayes has been a political prisoner for over 40 yrs. Seth has dire medical concerns & has been unjustly denied parole on 10 separate occasions. With both medical & legal injustice Seth needs our support! Please donate for Seth who has given so much! More

Robert Seth Hayes is one of the longest held political prisoners in the US. After returning from the Vietnam War, Seth joined the Black Panther Party and was later imprisoned for his involvement in the struggle for Black Liberation.

Seth was sentenced to 25 years to life, which means after serving 25 years he is eligible for parole. Seth has now been locked in prison for 42 years and unjustly denied parole on 10 occasions. Seth has a large and loving family and supportive community who yearn for his release. Seth turns 67 this year and suffers from multiple chronic medical problems.

We are waging a campaign for Seth concerning his ailing health. With proper medical care, Seth's health issues could be under control but the horribly inadequate health care during his incarceration places him at grave risk. The combination of repetitive parole denials and neglectful medical care equates to a extrajudicial death sentence for Seth.

In addition struggling to receive medical care, Seth is also fighting for his constitutional rights at the parole board. Seth is a model prisoner and meets all criteria for release, yet has been repetitively denied parole for no other reason than "the serious nature of the original crime." This essentially means that the Parole Board is taking it upon themselves to re-sentence Seth to life in prison without the possibility parole. Seth is challenging this violation of his constitutional rights with a Habeas petition.

Seth needs our support. Please make a contribution to this campaign to win justice and freedom for a brother who has sacrificed so much for us all!
