US Political Prisoners

New York Indymedia journalist Brad Will was murdered by the Oaxacan regional government in Mexico late last month, and you can read a short tribute by imprisoned videojournalist Josh Wolf here. Josh himself is a political prisoner in the United States:

    Josh Wolf, freelance journalist and independent videographer, is currently in “coercive custody” at the Federal Detention Facility in Dublin, California. He has never been charged with any crime. Wolf was incarcerated for contempt earlier this year after refusing to provide a Federal Grand jury with unedited video of a 2005 G-8 protest in San Francisco. His incarceration is virtually unprecedented for a journalist refusing to give information to a Grand Jury. It is widely believed he will likely become the longest held journalist in U.S. history.

Which is not long enough to interest the Australian media, apparently.

Imprisoned eco-activist Jeff Luers will celebrate his 28th birthday on December 5th, the seventh time he’ll have celebrated his birthday behind bars. Two days later, December 7th, is An International Day of Solidarity with Green Scare Indictees, Detainees, and Political Prisoners.

Stay tuned…
