Scott Demuth Has Been Released

July 29, 2011 davenportgrandjury

We're excited to let you all know that Scott was released earlier today and is
on a bus heading back home to Minneapolis! His prison sentence is now complete
and he's excited to be coming home. While he still has a year of supervised
release ahead of him, he'll once again be with his family, friends, comrades,
and loved ones here in the Twin Cities.

We'd also like to thank all of you for the tremendous amount of support you've
shown him and Carrie Feldman from the beginning of this ordeal, when Carrie was
subpoenaed to the grand jury in Davenport, IA in late 2009. Since then, you've
supported both Carrie and Scott while they were in jail or prison, helped us
raise the much-needed funds for their legal defenses, helped spread the word
about their cases and other Green Scare cases, and shown the power of our
solidarity in the face of state repression.

Scott no longer needs the same kinds of support he needed while he was in
prison, but there are plenty of other political prisoners and prisoners of war
who need our support. We encourage everyone to reach out to other prisoners to
help them through their ordeals. If you're around the Twin Cities this weekend,
we also invite you to a welcome-home gathering for Scott:

* When: Sunday, Aug. 31st, 2pm-??
* Where: Lake Calhoun, south beach
* What: Swimming, potluck, fun!

If you're not in the area and would like to send Scott some letters of support
for his transition back home, you can send them to:

Scott DeMuth
c/o Coldsnap Legal Collective
P.O. Box 50514
Mpls, MN 55405

With love and solidarity,

the Scott and Carrie Support Committe (SCSC)
