june2013Hello Friends and Comrades,

1) Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for June. As always, please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your own.

2) Mutulu Shakur had a stroke at the end of February and is having trouble obtaining the follow-up medical care that he needs. Please call the warden at Victorville and ask that Mutulu receive the medical care that he needs.  More info here.

3) Please send Rebecca Rubin a letter or note of encouragement, being transferred can be quite jarring. (Remember not to write to her about her case at all because she is pre-trial.)Rebecca is accused of being a member of the Earth Liberation Front. She is facing charges of arson and conspiracy for actions that occurred between 1996 and 2001.

Her new address is as follows:

6) We just received news from Jorge Cornell that their (J., Peaceful, and Ernesto’s) motion for re-trial was denied by Judge Beaty, who released a twelve page response to the defendants’ request. J. was told by his lawyer that it is entirely possible that the sentencing hearing may not even get scheduled until August. There are more updates on what’s going on with the North Carolina Latin Kings’ RICO trial here.

7) Lastly, here is a link to the latest Political Prisoner/Prisoner Of War every-other week update by the  NYC-Anarchist Black Cross. There are lots of good updates on many political prisoners.

    Just an FYI, my cards to Russel Kilfoil and Luis Medina II (Ramon) were returned to me. Both had no signs of being opened before being returned.

    Ramon/Luis’s was returned to sender for reason “refused”. Russel’s was returned “Not Here Return to Sender”. Any updates on these gentlemen or why cards didn’t get through?
