Freedom for Romaine Chip Fitzgerald Long Awaited
Longest-Held Black Panther Party Political Prisoner in U.S.

Imperial, California. At 1:30 p.m. on September 26, 2007, Romaine Chip Fitzgerald will once again go before the California Board of Parole Hearingsafter 38 years of unjust incarceration!

Chip, imprisoned since 1969, is serving a life sentence for a crime he did not commit. Factual government public files have exposed that the FBI and other policing agencies had strategic orders to neutralize and destroy the Black Panther Party after then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover issued his infamous dictum, in 1968, that the Black Panther Party was the greatest threat to the internal security of the United States. As part of that campaign, many Party leaders were assassinated and falsely imprisoned. Chip Fitzgerald was one of them.
Chips many supporters include Compton, California, City Attorney LeGrand Clegg, Compton City Councilwoman Barbara Calhoun, and former Chairman of the Black Panther Party, political activist and author Elaine Brown. He also has the support of Representative Maxine Waters and Mel Mason, President of the Monterey Peninsula Branch of the NAACP, which accepted Mr. Fitzgerald as a member in 1999. He has long been supported by countless community-based organizations.
Chip Fitzgeralds incarceration has far exceeded the maximum amount of time he should have served under his sentence. His supporters are now demanding of the Board that, in accordance with state law, Chip finally be released and allowed to return to a supportive community that will assist him with education, health care and employment. They are encouraging all those seeking justice in this country and around the world to write letters of support to the Board:
James Davis, Chairman Board of Parole Hearings
Post Office Box 4036
Sacramento, CA 95812-4036
Letters to Chip are also encouraged:

Centinela State Prison FC-2-110
PO Box 921
Imperial, California 92251-0731
