It appears that there is an IWW member, Phillip Ruiz, who, without any charges being released to indicate why, is being denied release from prison. Here are details about how you might be able to help:
“Phone Zap for Fellow Worker Phillip Ruiz
Phillip Ruiz, a Fellow Worker from the Los Angeles GMB, was scheduled to be released from the California Institution for Men, Chino on June 21st. Despite his release date, FW Ruiz has yet to be freed.
As of today, FW Ruiz has not been informed of any charges filed against him that would cause his delayed release. However, what is known is that days prior to Ruiz’s release date, a counselor by the name of Devlin threatened Ruiz that if he did not rescind a request for an internal affairs’ investigation related to errors made in the calculation of his time served, that he would held past his release date. It has become apparent that Counselor Devlin has followed through with his threat.
We are calling on all Fellow Workers and fellow travelers to respond to this injustice. On Wednesday, July 2nd, please call the numbers listed below and demand the following:
1. The immediate release of Phillip Ruiz (ID number is V91301);
2. If any charges are pending, that Ruiz be informed of said charges;
3. An investigation into the conduct of Counselor Devlin for misconduct and misuse of power;
