Would a petition or a personal letter help further this cause? I would be willing to write a letter and I feel many others here at Care 2 and probably on Facebook would do the same. Just give me the information, and I will being today.

Kit, thank you, yes, a petition would help.
I can't bear the thought of people in solitary confinement, let alone for decades!

Thanks Angola3, yes I also assume that AI will put out a new petition shortly, now after that report from Mr. Méndez.
A reminder here that there is more info about the memorial service and a donation opportunity to help cover the funeral costs for Herman, pls go to the Angola3 news page for info. (

Oh, wow . . . Sorry I missed this one! (Thanks for the heads up, Angie.)

Coincidentally, I just signed the petition only minutes ago.

Thanks for posting, Angola.

Sadly, due to the shutdown, the Bureau of Prisons's Info box will not be attended, hopefully all other recipients will get the petition message, and soon.
