USA: 100 years in solitary: The 'Angola 3' and their fight for justice
39 years ago, three young black men were put in solitary confinement; two are still in isolation. In total, the three men have spent more than 100 years in solitary, mostly in the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, USA. But the ‘Angola 3’ have refused to be silenced; their fight for justice continues. In this document Amnesty International is again calling on the Louisiana authorities to end the cruel, inhuman and degrading conditions in which they are held by immediately removing the men from solitary confinement.
