Ciarán Ferry held in Solitary Confinement, Accused of Past Association with Known Terrorist Organization

Colorado has seen a marked increase of illegally jailed prisoners of conscience, even prior to Sept 11th.

Most recently, Ciarán Ferry, a 31 year old Irish immigrant who moved to the U.S. to escape the persecution and death threats in Ireland, is being illegally imprisoned in solitary confinement at the Denver County Jail.

Ciarán spent over 7 years in prison for his involvement with the Irish Republican Army during his youth. Shortly after being released under Clinton's Good Friday Accords in 2000, he married an Irish-American, moved to the U.S. and saw the birth of his daughter on American soil.

Now, after nearly 150 days of confinement, the U.S. government refuses to let him go or send him back to Ireland where he could most likely be killed.
