As you may have heard by now, Leah-Lynne Plante was taken into custody following a contempt of court hearing on the morning of Wednesday, October 10th. She is the third person in the Pacific Northwest to be put in federal prison for refusing to testify before a grand jury. She may stay in prison until the end of the grand jury investigation which is scheduled to last until March 2014.
There are now 3 grand jury resisters sitting in federal prison. They all still need your support to keep up their strength and determination as they wait until they are released. We are asking for folks to support them in several ways:
1) Write Leah, Matt, and Kteeo in prison or sent them books. Visit http://supportresist.net/letters.html to find out details on their address and guidelines on writing and sending books.
2) Have a solidarity action in your community. This could be a letter writing night, a film showing, a march, or a fundraiser. If you need some ideas or support to make something happen, email us.
3) Donate. Visit our website: http://nopoliticalrepression.wordpress.com/donate/ and donate or visit the grand jury resisters' store: http://supportresist.storenvy.com/ and buy something in support of the resisters.
4) Stay updated and spread the word. Visit CAPR's website: http://nopoliticalrepression.wordpress.com/, The grand jury resisters blogs and personal websites: http://supportresist.net/ or http://www.freeleah.org/. Tell your friends, co-workers, and families about what is happening in the Pacific Northwest and encourage them to support the grand jury resisters.
Thank you for your continued support. It means a lot to Leah, Matt, and Kteeo and to those of us waiting for them to come home.
