Please Send Anna Vasquez a Birthday Card!

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Dear Friend of Justice,

Many of you are aware of the plight of the four young Latina women in Texas, falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of crimes that never occurred:

I have just learned that one of them, Anna Vasquez, has a birthday this Sunday, June 24th.

I will be sending her a card. I hope some of you will do the same. The address:

Anna Vasquez  #936629
Hilltop unit (El-08)
1500 State School Rd
Gatesville TX 76598

These reminders that there are those of us on the outside who care can do much to lift the spirits of  innocents languishing behind bars.

Bernard Baran and his Attorney John Swomley

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Dear Friend of Justice,

On April 17, 2012, Bernard Baran and his attorney, John Swomley, visited a criminal justice class at St. Francis College in Brooklyn.

Here is a link to the video.

An unscrupulous prosecutor rode a wave of homophobic hysteria to get his career-advancing conviction. (Disgracefully, he is still a judge in Massachusetts.) Baran, an innocent man arrested when only 19, survived 22 years of rapes, beatings, and degradation. The Berkshire County still refuses to acknowledge the terrible mistakes that they made.
