Ghetto Prophet, Co-Chair of the ONYX Organizing Committee Arrested and Needs Support!

March 21, 2013

On March 5, Michael Walker, aka Ghetto Prophet (GP), co-chair of the ONYX Organizing Committee, was arrested at his home by the California Highway Patrol. Police claimed he was in violation of his parole, but GP has been off of parole since August 2012. At no point since then has the state called him, sent him mail or shown up at his door to let him know he failed to report (which according to the parole office is mandatory and common practice before an arrest warrant can be served). 


Supporters believe this is a political attack. Earlier in the day on March 5, GP participated in the Justice for Alan Blueford (JAB) Coalition rally at the Alameda County Courthouse. He had at least two verbal altercations with police and gave a fiery speech condemning them. It is also public knowledge that ONYX is launching a strategic and sustainable campaign against police brutality, with plans to launch a literacy program on April 3.

 

Given his penchant for leadership and his past record, Comrade GP would be viewed as and important (and easy) member of ONYX to attack. As of March 16, Ghetto Prophet is still being held at Santa Rita jail and supporters are asking for donations to help support his family.

 

We are raising funds to support the wife and three children of ONYX Co-Chair Ghetto Prophet who is being unjustly imprisoned at Santa Rita jail as retaliation for his participation in a Justice for Alan Blueford rally at Alameda County Courthouse on March 5, 2013. GP is the sole provider for his family.
