Thank you for your kind consideration. Let peace and justice prevail. Thank you.

 

Letter from Lynne Stewart

Dear Friends and Supporters:

One month ago I made a request for compassionate release, which was honored by the warden at Carswell Federal Medical Center.  Today the papers are still on a desk in Washington, D.C. even though the terminal cancer that I have contracted requires expeditious action.

Although I requested immediate action by the Bureau of Prisons, I find it necessary to again request immediate action from you, my friends, comrades, and supporters to call the three numbers listed above on Thursday, May 30 and request action on my behalf.

This could result in my being able to access medical treatment at Sloan Kettering so that I can face the rest of my life with dignity surrounded by those I love and who love me.

 

Please do this.

Yours truly,

Lynne Stewart FMS CARSWELL-53504-054

 

Dear Friends of Lynne Stewart,

 

I just returned from visiting Lynne Stewart at FMC Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas during the Memorial Day weekend. Lynne is dying! She had been diagnosed with Stage Four Breast Cancer. But she is not without hope. Her spirits are high and determination to live and fight on intact. The medical staff at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC is waiting for her arrival and prepared with state of the art treatments that could prolong her life and maybe even save it. I have know Lynne forfifty four years. She is not one to give up on any struggle for human rights and justice. This time the struggle is for her life. Please make the calls and pass this on to every person who cherishes humanity’s struggle for a world free from injustice and oppression. I have lots to say about my 12 hours with Lynne last weekend, but now is the time for action. Lynne is counting on you at this very special moment.

 

In solidarity,

 

Jeff Mackler, West Coast Coordinator, Lynne Stewart Defense Committee
