A Good Time for the Good Time Bill: Dinner, A Movie ("Hoot") and Conversation

Donations Welcome!

Three years ago, our dear friend Daniel McGowan was among the first
people arrested as part of an FBI offensive against environmental
activists and others. Daniel began serving his seven-year sentence in
July 2007. In August 2008, Daniel was moved to the Communications
Management Unit in Marion, IL, a facility that bypassed the usual
review process and severely restricts inmates' communication with the
outside world.

To mark the three-year anniversary of Daniel's arrest, please join us
to learn more about Daniel's situation, the Communications
Management Units, and our campaign to pass the Federal Prison Work
Incentive Act (or "Good Time Bill") - a bill to restore good time
allowances toward service of Federal prison terms (substantially
reduce one's time in prison).

Learn what you can do to support these endeavors for liberatory
social justice and toward bringing friends and families together.

Spread the word!

And, as always, please write to Daniel:

Daniel McGowan
Columbia County Jail
403 Jackson Street
Portage, Wisconsin 53901

We can't know for sure, but our best guess is that he will be in
Columbia County for at least a couple of weeks. County Jail is
difficult and lonely, especially during the holidays, and letters can
really help. Please write Daniel as often as you can.


Before it's too late, Stop the murder of MUMIA!

Join a day of
International Solidarity

Saturday, DEC. 6 at **12 Noon**

District Attorney Office
2 South Penn Square (**East Side** of City Hall)
March to Federal Courts 5th St. & Market

*Actions will be held in cities across the U.S. & the World.

Millions across the world have marched and protested for Mumia's freedom.
But, while Amnesty International, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus,
the International Association of Democratic Lawyers, the Harvard University
Racial Justice Institute and dozens of other legal entities around the world
roundly denounced the trial and appeals process conducted by Hanging Judge
Albert Sabo, every court since, using the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death
Penalty Act restrictions, has refused to address the issue of innocence, and
has simply affirmed the Sabo court's verdict of guilt. The tremendous body
of testimony and evidence that points to Mumia's innocence has
systematically been excluded from his legal record. From the Pennsylvania
Supreme Court to the Third Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, from Pamela
Dembe to William Yohn , each level of the judiciary system has collaborated
with the DA, the FOP, and their allies to assure that Mumia never leave
prison and, preferably, that he be executed and permanently silenced. They
are getting set to murder Mumia as they did with Shaka Sankofa and
Stanley"Tookie" Williams, and as they are trying to do with Troy Davis
! Mumia is an innocent political prisoner who has been framed in
order to silence his powerful revolutionary voice. We say Stop the
Frameup! No to execution! No to life in prison! Free Mumia Now!

EVERY WEDNESDAY IN DECEMBER is Phone for Parole Day for Herman Bell
and Jalil Muntaqim!

Call NY Governor David A. Paterson between 10AM and 3PM Eastern Standard
Time this Wednesday and every Wednesday in December.


Urge him to sign the amended Executive agreements which will allow NY
inmates Herman Bell (#2318931) and Jalil Muntaqim (s/n Anthony Bottom/
#2311826) to return to New York State to attend their rightful parole
hearings. We're calling him every Wednesday morning of '08 until he signs
off on the transfer.

The transfer of SF8 defendants Herman Bell and Jalil Muntaqim from the San
Francisco County Jail back to New York State for their rightful parole
hearings has been blocked by both state governors for weeks and NYS now
wants to deny this right for good. This comes despite previous agreements
in the courtroom between the California State prosecutors, the presiding
judge and, of course, the brothers and their attorneys.

Judge Philip Moscone signed an order in May allowing Herman Bell and Jalil
Muntaqim to return to New York State for their parole hearings. All
parties agreed at that time that the move would be temporary; Herman and
Jalil waived their rights to fight extradition back to California.
