green scare

Daniel McGowan is off house arrest

Great news! Today (9/11/06) Daniel's lawyers received word that Judge Aiken signed off on the motion which allowed Daniel's electronic monitoring device to be removed. Other restrictions still apply, but he is allowed to be out of the apartment and enjoy the crisp autumn weather coming our way.
Support Daniel by organizing your community!
So far Daniels supporters (and that includes you!) have done an excellent job of organizing ourselves to support him in these difficult times. We have been drawing on Daniel's connections to the community to build support for his freedom. It is also important that we map out our relationships (political, social, cultural, etc.) so that we can expand the scope of our work. We plan to reach a broader population of potential supporters who do not share an immediate or obvious connection with Daniel McGowan himself by utilizing all of the connections to broader communities that exist within our networks.
