A public forum to save the life and win the freedom of radical attorney Lynne Stewart, suffering from Stage 4 lung cancer.

• Lynne is lifelong civil liberties attorney, social justice and human rights activist, coordinating committee member of the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) and a member of the National Lawyers Guild.

• She is a victim of a government frame-up conviction on charges of aiding and abetting terrorism, and imprisoned for ten years for defending the civil liberties and democratic rights of the Egyptian cleric (the “blind sheik’) Omar Abdel Rachman

• Lynne has Stage 4 lung cancer and is seeking “compassionate release” to the New York City hospital that treated her original and now metastasized breast cancer. Citing “prison regulations” at FMC Carswell in Forth Worth, Texas, the warden denied release on the grounds that their medical experts claim that Lynne does not fall under this release program because she has at least two years to live before being overtaken by her metastasized cancer. Lynne’s medical experts say that if she is allowed the state-of-the-art treatment available today, she can recover. Meanwhile Lynne’s appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to hear her case is pending.

Hear: JEFF MACKLER, West Coast Coordinator, Lynne Stewart Defense Committee; lifelong friend of Lynne Stewart; director, The Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal; Administrative Committee, UNAC
