The Friends of Marcia Powell heard from Lynne Stewart today, in response to a postcard we sent her from the First Amendment / Anti-Arpaio Rally at the Cronkite School of Broadcasting a month or so ago.
As an attorney Lynne represented many political prisoners from our great liberation movements pro bono, in many cases, over the past few decades. That’s the real reason why the federal government wants to kill her, regardless of what party is in power. Hit her site to see why this beautiful, courageous woman is fighting cancer and the Justice Department from behind bars now herself.
If you want to write to a political prisoner and have already done your www.mailart4mumia.org project (mail your art to the White House and DOJ the week of April 24), drop a note of support to Lynne at:

You can also do some artwork similar to the campaign for Mumia ( or steal mine and make postcards out of it – I just messed with the color from and ordinary chalked sidewalk). We’ll hit the White House, Justice Department, US Congress members, the Washington Post, and everyone else we can think of with “Free Lynne Stewart”. She’s the one of all the political prisoners who they themselves are probably rooting for the most right now – like Mumia, her life is in danger.
From the DOJ’s Special Litigation Section Website (Where CRIPA Investigations are covered). We may be sending them to USP-Lewisburg, next…
If anyone has any tips on connecting with Warden Bledsoe, I’m open. Reach me at email@example.com
