From Abdullah Majid: legal defense funds needed

majid

“Peace

I want to first thank you for your support of political prisoners in the u.s.a. You like many others who write, ask what can you do to help me in my present circumstances? In fact there is something you can do at
this time to aid me in my freedom. Presently a Defense Committee has been established and we are trying to raise funds for my legal defense. I have an attorney as well as an investigator who has recently joined our team.

The assistance most needed at this time is funds to pay for expenses in which we incur for documents and investigative work by our investigator. Those wishing to help can do so by organizing fund raisers, there is no
amount that is to small or to large. And your help is most appreciated and welcome. Funds may be sent to the following”

From Free Marius Mason:

We have good news! Marius was transferred out of the SHU (or Special Housing Unit) on Saturday, August 1st, after nearly a month and a half of solitary confinement.

At this time, we do not know how the alleged violation cited by prison officials as the basis for his punishment will affect Marius in the long term, but we do know that in addition to the time he spent in the SHU, more restrictions have been placed on him that further limit his already limited life in the Administration Unit at the Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas.

While we are overjoyed that Marius is out of the terrible and dispiriting world of solitary confinement, we cannot forget where Marius is—prison. The Administration Unit at Carswell is gymnasium-sized, holds up to 20 prisoners, and is frequently and unpredictably locked down for hours on end due to violence and suicide attempts resulting from the claustrophobic and oppressive conditions.

We urge all of you to write Marius a letter or drop a line with a postcard. Your solidarity matters!
