Late last night I was humbly reminded that we need not forget those who have given up their lives- be it to death, incarceration, persecution, (etc)- to try and give free access to truth, knowledge, and/or illegal activities engaged in by the government and then covered up, just to name a few of the reasons…
It’s beyond insane to even consider locking up people for computer/internet and information sharing when we have real criminals, such as rapists and child molesters, out there. The war on drugs is now extending to people who are activists; the war on drugs, the war on activists- all of it is nothing more than war on the people.
Right now we have Edward Snowden and Julian Assange having to worry about their lives, and we have too many young people locked up for using the computer and internet to achieve knowledge and justice; harming no one along the way, benefiting nothing personal from their activities. These people need to know they are not forgotten, that they are appreciated and will see life outside of bars again.
Please click the link HERE and write to as many of the new, young political prisoners as possible; thank them for what they’ve sacrificed and risked. Remind them they have people out here fighting for them, people who care for them.
If it were you in prison, that’s the least you would hope for, yeah?
