Tribute to Lynne Stewart and Political Prisoners

Pam Africa of the MOVE Organization pondering on the words of Ramona Africa at the Tribute to Lynne Stewart and Political Prisoners event

Radical human rights attorney Lynne Stewart has been falsely accused of helping terrorists but was merely exercising her responsibility and rights as defense attorney. In 2009 Stewart was sentence to 10 years in federal prison. Now suffering from stage 4 cancer, she is in a federal medical facility for women in Texas, thousands of miles away from her home, family and community. This is another blatant attempt by the U.S. government to silence dissent, curtail vigorous defense lawyers, and install fear in those who would fight against U.S. government racism, seek to help Arabs and Muslims being prosecuted for free speech, and defend the rights of oppressed people.
