Thread: Free lynne stewart resist the destruction of democratic rights in america

    Lynne Stewart died yesterday, surrounded by her husband and son, of complications due to her advanced metastatic cancer.

    I regard her as having been a political prisoner for the time she was incarcerated. Her entire legal career was for the underdog and those being tread upon by the powerful, the government, the system. She did not get a fair trail and the second trial was a kangaroo court to scare all lawyers from providing defense of those the US government considered 'terrorists'. She was released at the end of 2013 early due to her cancer.

    Lynne Stewart Presente!

    Very sad news Peter. I understand she was not medically cared for in prison so the cancer untreated and spread. Inhuman treatment. She did well with the life she had though.

    Yes, this is true, she was refused proper treatment for a long time and then when very ill she had to fight for over a year to get release. While people do get cancer naturally, the intelligence community LONG ago developed the ability to give it to their enemies. We'll never know. Her legal work and life was exemplary and puts to shame the lives of those who sought to threaten and incarcerate her. There are sadly fewer lawyers in the US now who are brave enough to stand up for the rights of those without them - and that number is increasing daily. She will be missed. They did her wrong because they hated her client - the 'Blind Sheik'. The irony of it all...he was tangentially involved in the first bombing of the WTC - but so was the FBI!...but I digress...
