|Katherine Olejnik, was imprisoned today for her refusal to cooperate with the ongoing witch-hunt and grand jury convening in Seattle that is investigating anarchists and other political radicals. She is now the second person to be imprisoned for invoking her fifth amendment right to silence and she, like Matt, may be held until March unless we turn up the heat on this campaign to get them out!
For those who were waiting, thinking that this would all blow over if we did nothing, thinking that this grand jury would be reigned in by a lawyer with a quick wit and the simple rule of law, this is the time to act!
There’s a couple things you can do below please remember than when dealing with prison/court officials and writing to prisoners, what you write and say can adversely impact our prisoners even though your comments may not have been solicited.
