support Eco Political Prisoner Grant Barnes

Grant is currently serving a 12 year sentence for ELF related actions. Please take a moment to write him a letter and show this Brother he is nor forgotten.
In a recent letter from Eco Political Prisoner Grant Barnes he made a few requests. He says in part "Challenging reading material is hard to get here but More then anything I enjoy correspondence.... please feel free to pass my address around." I get the impression from his letters that mail for him is pretty hit or miss. It would do a lot to lift his spirits if folks would write him. For more info on Grant Barnes see www.ecoprisoners.org .

Grants received books from books to prisoners groups in the past and has gotten zines from South Chicago ABC as well but hasn't gotten anything in a couple months.

Political Prisoner? Book suggestion for Grant 05.Oct.2008 09:29


There are people in this world TRULY in prison for their political beliefs. It is an insult to people like Nelson Mandela that a convicted arsonist like Barnes is refered to as a poitical prisoner.

I suggest that someone send Grant a book entitled "A Long Walk to Freedom", written by a REAL political prisoner, Nelson Mandela.
