Free Lynne Stewart

The following letter was sent on 21 January to Joe Keffer, Warden at the Carswell Federal Medical Center:

Dear Sir:

It has come to our attention that 73-year-old political prisoner Lynne Stewart is suffering a serious medical complication from her long-diagnosed breast cancer. The cancer has now spread to her lungs and back.

Ms. Stewart's very life is at risk. It would be inhumane to keep her locked up even one more day. She must be treated immediately.

We demand that Lynne Stewart be released forthwith to receive all necessary medical care and be with her family.
