Also, Matt - active in the War Resisters League, Resistance in Brooklyn, and national co-chair of the Campaign to Free RUSSELL MAROON SHOATZ - mentions the ongoing campaign to free the former Black Panther political prisoner from his torturous 22 consecutive years in solitary confinement. The two new books by those two inspiring comrades – Lopez Rivera's Between Torture and Resistance, and Shoatz' Maroon the Implacable – were both recently released by PM Press, www.pmpress.org and are spotlighted on the show. Meyer, a Board member of the Peace and Justice Studies Association and an NGO representative of the International Peace Research Association, is author of the introduction of Lopez Rivera's book and co-author of the afterward of Maroon Shoatz' book.
