Lynne Stewart: Warden Supports Compassionate Release

Initial Victory for Lynne Stewart!

Dear Friends of Lynne,

A moment ago I received a call from Lynne Stewart's husband, Ralph Poynter,
that the warden at FMC Carswell prison in Fort Worth Texas has recommended
immediate compassionate release for government frame-up victim and reknowned
attorney for the damned, Lynne Stewart.

Stewart was sentenced to ten years in prison on charges of conspiracy to aid
and abet terrorism because she issued a press release on behalf of her client
the "blind" sheik, Omar Abdel Rachman.

The Carswell warden stated that he could not deal with the over 11,000
petitions he had received to date and recommended to the Justice Department
that Lynne be released to the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City,
the world class hospital where Lynne first underwent surgery for breast cancer
some three years ago.

Today that cancer has metastasized to both lungs and her back. She has been
diagnosed by Forth Worth hospital doctors as having Stage 4 lung cancer and is
receiving chemotherapy in a nearby, but inadequate Forth Worth hospital.
Lynne's white blood count fell to almost zero, forcing doctors to send her to
an isolation unit to prevent Lynne's succumbing to bacterial infestations that
her body's immune system is incapable of defending against.

Lynne case will now pass through a series of hurdles – from  the Justice
Department and the original sentencing Judge John Koeltl to perhaps President
Obama himself.

The international campaign to win compassionate release must now shift to the
national government, including the Obama administration. But the first victory
has been achieved due to the mass of protest letters to the warden and
innumerable acts of solidarity from well know figures across the globe.

The petition for Lynne can be found at LynneStewart.org

Sign now and distribute it widely!

Stay tuned for an update this evening

In solidarity,
