Default ACTION ALERT: October 22-26 -- Maryland's Outside Connection

Powerlessness and silence go together. We...should use our privileged positions [as freeworlders] not as a shelter from the world's reality, but as a platform from which to speak. A voice is a gift. It should be cherished and used. – Margaret Atwood
Please take the time to email Governor Martin O'Malley this week (October 22-26, 2007) regarding the allegations of abuse at WCI. Complaints continue to be forwarded to this organization regarding conditions at WCI. Use the attached link to send the Governor and email: http://www.gov.state.md.us/mail/ (If the link does not work by clicking on it, cut and paste it into your browser.) Let every other email the Governor opens be about Maryland's lack of response to expressed concerns regarding WCI and other issues!

Secretary Gary D. Maynard was contacted via email on September 29, 2007 (scroll down and see the text of the letter below). Three weeks have gone by and still no response.

FORWARD THIS MESSAGE WIDELY ACTIVATE the POWER OF EIGHT Get 8 more people to stop talking action and just do the damn thing

REMEMBER: While your loved one may not be incarcerated at WCI today, they may be sent there tomorrow.

Default Fight Back.

If O'Malley will not listen, make sure to complain to the American Civil Liberty Union. www . aclu . org There are organizations in every state. Look up the number of your local aclu office online. If there are enough similar complaints, not only will the Governor listen, it will make other facilities across the country listen.
