US tells Judge to put them away

The US District Attorney filed its response to defense motions for downward departures for the Transform Now Plowshares activists; they ask Judge Amul Thapar to sentence Megan, Michael and Greg within the sentencing guidelines, ignoring the nonviolence nature of their action, disposing of them, instead, as though they were armed terrorist saboteurs.

  1. Tragic and shameful for this country. We punish the good and elevate the destructive.

  2. due to hip operation can’t make it down- dave eberhardt- re prison- from the great Turkish poet- Nazim Hikmet

    It’s This Way

    I stand in the advancing light,
    my hands hungry, the world beautiful.

    My eyes can’t get enough of the trees–
    they’re so hopeful, so green.

    A sunny road runs through the mulberries,
    I’m at the window of the prison infirmary.

    I can’t smell the medicines–
    carnations must be blooming nearby.

    It’s this way:
    being captured is beside the point,
    the point is not to surrender.
