Boots Riley Supports Jeremy Hammond

Boots Riley Supports Jeremy Hammond

Wednesday 27 August 2014

Recently, musician Boots Riley and his band, The Coup, played at a festival in Ohio. Boots has long been deeply involved in revolutionary politics and committed to lots of awesome causes. When a couple of dear friends and comrades asked him to pose with a picture of a sign they painted in support of Jeremy, he immediately agreed.

Not only did Boots pose for this picture, but he also sent us a shirt to “keep safe” for Jeremy until he gets out! Thank you to Boots for his support and generosity, and to Jeremy’s supporters for the amazing sign! We could not do the work we do without the love and support we receive from around the world.

Boots Riley is best known as the leader of The Coup, the seminal Hip-Hop group from Oakland, CA. As a producer and lyricist, Riley has crafted critically acclaimed albums for The Coup that have graced the year-end Top 10 lists of Rolling Stone, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and more. They have also received "Album of the Year" honors from The Washington Post, Time Out New York, while Billboard Magazine declared the group "the best hip-hop act of the past decade."

Born in Chicago and raised in East Oakland’s Funktown neighborhood, Boots became a teenage community organizer. From his history of student organizing in Oakland’s public schools, serving on the central committee for the Progressive Labor Party, being the President of Youth InCar (Youth International Committee Against Racism), organizing to build California’s Anti-Racist Farm Workers’ Union, to developing "guerrilla hip hop concerts" (mobile concerts on flatbed trucks), Boots Riley has been an integral part of the progressive struggle for radical change through culture.

Jeremy Hammond Jail Support Donations to his commissary fund are also appreciated.

This fund will help support whistleblower Jeremy Hammond while he serves his 10-year prison sentence.
