You can help fight political revenge used against activists. All it takes is an email.
Ed Sacchette is a human rights activist who has found that activism can lead to political revenge and that his access to rights as a U.S. Citizen can be compromised because of political pressure.
He applied for the Immigration and Naturalization Service for a fiance' visa to allow his fiance' to enter the country so they could be married. His fiance' is a classical Balinese dancer, a Hindu priest and a traditional healer in the Balinese culture.
The process to obtain a fiance' visa is supposed to take two months, they have now been waiting nearly NINE months. He applied to the office of Senator Diane Feinstein for assistance in June of 2001.But now, even her office is not returning his phone calls, certified letters, or FAX. The Senator is on the Senate's Immigration Committee.
Take a minute to use the link below, and tell the senator political revenge can not be used to block access to governmental services. Ask her office to investigate.
It could happen to YOU!
