International Kick Off to Move Marie Mason Campaign | Facebook

International Kick Off to Move Marie Mason Campaign | Facebook | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it

We’re launching a campaign to Move Marie out of FMC Carswell to a medium security prison closer to family and friends. This campaign will also highlight the continued attacks on the environmental movement, the appalling conditions in FMC Carswell and other high security prisons, and the use of isolation and long-term solitary confinement against prisoners.

We’re calling on fellow environmentalists, radical parents, prison
abolitionists, labor organizers, opponents of GMOs, musicians, artists, and other rabble rousers to join us as we kick this campaign into high gear.
This will be a time to put pressure on the Bureau of Prisons and to take part in creative actions across the world, amplifying the campaign to Move Marie, and to Free Marie and All Political Prisoners.

*You can help by participating in October 25th!*
*Join the Free Marie Campaign *
