For the past few years the weekend of June 11 was typically a time when we reflected on Jeff Free Luers' 22.5 year sentence and held events to recognize the anniversary of his incarceration. This year Jeff writes below that he wishes this year to focus on the Green Scare co-defendants. Please plan an event now! It's only 3 months away. And keep reading...

Call for Weekend of Resistance Against the "Green Scare" June 9 - 11, 2006
by Jeff Free Luers
This June marks my 6th year in prison. From behind these walls I have strived to remain
an active part of this struggle; from contributing to the dialogue and discussion of
tactics, to furthering the debate on climate change in the public. Perhaps most
importantly I am proof that prison cannot crush the spirit of resistance.
This year has seen an increase in state repression against activists and radicals alike.
It is truly a scary time. We all know about the "Red Scare" - the government's attempt to
justify repression by labeling dissidents "communists" back in the 1950's. Today we see
their "Green Scare" attempt to crush resistance by labeling them "eco-terrorists."
For the last three years, June 11th has been celebrated as an international day of
solidarity with me, Jeffrey Luers. I have been overjoyed with a sense of love & pride at
the support I have received from around the world. My deepest and sincerest thanks go out
to all of you.
Right now there are more than a dozen people sitting in American jails (or on strict bail
release) accused of Earth/Animal Liberation Front actions. Six people were originally
arrested. These arrests were based almost entirely on the testimony of one police
informant, Jacob Ferguson. Bill Rodgers - accused of multiple arsons - took his own life
in a jail cell. Unfortunately, several of those arrested are now cooperating with the
These defendants are facing ridiculous charges and a draconian amount of time.
This June, I ask you to show them the solidarity that you have shown me. I ask that
foremost in your mind be the thought that the state is trying to break this struggle with
repressive and intimidating arrests and sentences. I hope you understand that it's not
just those of us in prison being punished with these sentences; they are designed to be
examples to you, to frighten you into compliance. This June I'm asking you to demonstrate
that you can't be intimidated. Celebrate your dissent, give it voice. Be loud. Be
visible. If you have the ability, organize a reclaim the streets party or a critical mass.
If you are going to host a fundraiser or venue event, I ask that you donate all proceeds
to the legal defense of those recently arrested who maintain integrity in the face of
repression, whether they are innocent or guilty.
This June, show the world that the voice of truth will not be silenced by fear.
