Since Lynne’s arrest 10 years ago on April 9, 2002, she has fought false accusations and government frame-up. Lynne spent her life defending poor and unpopular defendants.
Originally sentenced to 28 months in prison, in a unprecedented move her bail was suddenly revoked and on July 10, 2010 Lynne Stewart was resentenced to 10 years in prison for showing a lack of remorse after her initial sentencing.
The jailing of Lynne Stewart is an obvious attempt by the U.S. government to silence dissent, curtail vigorous defense lawyers, and install fear in those who would fight against the U.S. government’s racism, seek to help Arabs and Muslims being prosecuted for free speech and defend the rights of all oppressed people.
Come and show your love and solidarity with our sister Lynne Stewart at the Tuesday, Feb. 28 Vigil and Wed Feb 29 Hearing.
