Related information about Jeffery Luers:

Each June for the past 8 years, a Day of Solidarity has been held to garner support for Jeff and other eco-prisoners. Throughout the years, support for Jeff has been widespread and the solidarity has been appreciated more than words could ever express.

In February 2008, after winning his appeal, Jeff finally received a reduced sentence and will now be released by December 2009; almost 13 years earlier than his original sentence would have allowed.

So, this June there are reasons to celebrate. But there is still a lot to accomplish. One of the most difficult aspects of prison is reintegrating back into a "normal" life. Jeff has plans to take classes, while maintaining a job and will be facing many living expenses, as well as dealing with the emotional reintegration.

June 14, 2008 will mark the kickoff to a campaign to raise money to help Jeff with his education and living expenses upon his release. We hope this day also helps bring attention to the many eco-prisoners still facing time behind bars and repression by the state.

-Friends of Jeffrey Luers
