* Special Appeal on Behalf of a Long-Time Peltier Supporter *

On Thursday, November 19th, civil rights attorney Lynne Stewart
was ordered by Judge John G. Koeltl to turn herself in to begin
serving a 28-month prison sentence for her 2006 conviction. A victim
of post-9/11 hysteria akin to McCarthyism, while representing a
client to the best of her ability, Lynne was accused of conspiracy
and providing material support to terrorists. This 70-year-old
woman has devoted her life to the poor and underprivileged

is fighting not only for her freedom, but for any American's
freedom. We urge everyone to sign the petition on Lynne's behalf
