Anyone needing transportation may be able to carpool. Please let
Jaymmie Stallworth know if you need a ride and she will try to provide it. Also, she can provide any recommendations about hotel/motel accommodations or any logistical questions.

This is a non-violent demonstration. It will be a peaceable event to show solidarity with those being wrongly held in C.S.H. and to communicate the conditions under which they are held. Please do not attend this event if you are unable to abide by accepted rules of civility.

We do request that you email or call us to let us know if you can attend but you do not have to provide your name. This is only to help us better plan the event, you can remain entirely anonymous. If you cannot contact us ahead of time, that's fine, too.

We look forwarding to seeing you there. More importantly, this event will give an enormous boost to the spirits of the Detainees who have little to hope for. Indeed, the anticipation of this demonstration has already had a dramatic effect on their morale. Please attend the demonstration and show you care!

Thank you!
Allan Marshall

Hi all!

I was a detainee in Massachusetts, so I understand some of what's going on out there. The state uses civil commitment to continue to punish men and women they "specualte" as being dangerous. I went the whole route in treatment here, and they still tried to commit me. My offenses were not violent, but the local politics were outrageous.
I have my own website now devoted to putting a stop to the fascist nonsense that politicians are engaging in against men and women that have paid their debt to society.

You can visit my site at: http://www.2nd-chance.info if you like.

I am tmaximus95@aim.com, or tmaximus95@yahoo.com.

If there is anything I can do to help you guys out, even though I'm 3,000 miles away, let me know.
