Please write cards or letters to the following prisoners. Even if you just send a card with a brief message, receiving a message of support from the outside world can make a huge difference to the prisoner. Remember all correspondence is read by prison staff. Also don’t expect a reply as there is a limit to the number of letters each prisoner can write.

Cheques & Postal Orders

Please note that details of who the cheques/POs should be made payable to are listed below. The prisoner's name and number should be printed clearly on the back of the cheque/PO.

Marie Jeanette Mason, 04672-061 - Moved again - 08-08-10

FMC Carswell, Federal Medical Center, P.O. Box 27137, Fort Worth, TX 76127, USA.
According to the BOP inmate locator, Marie Mason is at the Federal Medical Center in Fort Worth. Although rumors continue to swirl, there is no confirmation at this time as to where Marie will end up.

Please drop Marie a line. If you are writing a longer letter, we recommend you photocopy it, in case she is moved again by the time it arrives. This way you can resend it again later.

Marie was sentenced on 5th February 2009 to an outrageous 21 years and 10 months imprisonment for ELF/ALF actions.
http://freemarie.org/ and http://supportmariemason.org
Birthday: 26th January

See http://freemarie.org and http://supportmariemason.org for more information about Marie

Mason is upset that rumors are apparently circulating in Europe to the effect that, because of her trouble receiving an adequate diet, she has stopped being vegan.

Mason wants supporters - especially those in the animal rights movement-to know that she IS still vegan (for a combination of ethical, medical and religious reasons).

Please pass this on to any parties who may be spreading incorrect information.

Briana Waters - Updated - 16-10-10

Briana is serving a six year sentence for allegedly acting as a look-out during an ELF arson.  There was no evidence to support the case against Briana other than the words of two police informants who lied to the police to try and get a lighter sentence.
www.supportbriana.org/

Update: Good news - Briana was released from prison on Saturday, 16th October 2010 on Bail. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the environmental activist's conviction on September 14th, 2010, based on their findings that her conviction was improper because important rulings by the trial court deprived her of a fair trial. After serving 2 and a half years, she was released from prison today, October 14, 2010, pending a re-trial. She is ecstatic about being reunited with her daughter, Kalliope.
