Hi, everyone!

My friend, Ann, asked me to pass this address on to you all:

Detainee B
Canterbury Ward,
Crowthorne,
Berkshire,
RG11 78G

Here's an excerpt from the email I received from Ann:

"I got a two page letter full of wise advice from Rachid two weeks ago and a quick fix postcard last week but nothing since. He seems in good spirits as usual and had missed a reflexology class to write to me. so certainly French prisons seem far removed from the Belmarsh!!  He can sit outside in the sun there too (no doubt with barbedwire surrounding him) but the important thing is that he is benefiting from the sun's rays and that news made me so happy. One of his Algeria friends who is now incarcerated in a state hospital in England was asking news of Rachid and I told him that Rachid was receiving letters from supporters in America. He asked if I could pass on his address to you in the hope that people would write to  him too. Unfortunately, because of a court ruling here, he cannot be named so is known as Detainee B.  He is a lovely guy. Single like Rachid and far away from his family. He is very intelligent and well educated and is also a gifted potter. He is allowed to call  me and we speak often on the phone. I  have mentioned him in my interviews on cagerprisoner.com  If you mention my request to Rachid he will be so amused as Detainee B is a special brother to Rachid."

I'm always amazed at how strong Rachid is-he's always smiling in the face of adversity.  I am glad that he is not stuck in a concrete room all day!  Also, Ann told me Rachid received a letter from Ode.  He didn't know the gender of "Ode", but I think it might be the magazine!!!  I may be wrong, but I can always hope!  I did notice that in his last letters, he's been drawing pictures on them & he sent me a homemade card!  I can't help but to have this feeling that true justice will be served soon...I really hope that this feeling is not in vain.

Ann & Rachid have been so thankful that I've been posting this info here on Care2 & I'm thankful for the audience willing to read, write, & check out cageprisoners.com!  Thank you all for everything you do, be it for humans, animals, or the environment!  A special thank you goes out to those who have written to any of the prisoners listed on the above mentioned site.  Please know that Ann & Rachid thank you too!

Peace & Love,
Denise
