Brother Ken Ford was convicted under the Espionage Act of 1917 based on false government charges that he was attempting to sell classified information regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to a foreign diplomat. The US government used lies, black women, and all the power of the state to convict this brother and throw his life in disarray. What is even more astounding about this case is that there is NO media coverage about this brother’s story. While Trayvon’s murder is a travesty and indicative of the “American ideal”, we cannot balkanize our attentions to one incident when the corporate media decides to latch onto the story. We must be aware of the injustice for our people everywhere it manifest and be just as vocal. While everyone is wearing hoodies, making Trayvon’s tragic murder a spectacle, our brother Ken Ford languishes with only the help of our courageous sister Cynthia McKinney and brother Dr. Randy Short, a genuine activist who is committed to getting Ken’s story out to the public. Zari interviewed Ken Ford and will be posting this interview on the Watershed podcast coming soon. We will also post the videos with Ken Ford and his parents in a series, so please watch, and subscribe to our Youtube page. We must answer the call to help support this brother.
Ken has expressed that the best way for people to support is to provide contacts for good and reputable appeals lawyers and leads on computer technology jobs in the Washington D.C. area. If any of our readers can help in these areas, please email me, Zari at email@example.com and I will pass the information to Ken. This is serious business people, so if you have any information, please let us know!
