Lynne Stewart: U.S. Political Prisoner Released


Lynne Stewart arrives in New York today from prison in Texas. She is greeted by throngs of her supporters. Federal Judge John Koeltl ordered her "compassionate release".  But  her release should be credited to the determined work of her defense committee for their dogged determination that the truth about her case would remain in the public eye and for the work of organizing world wide support for her and against the U.S. Government's persecution. Amy Goodman's interview with her will be featured 1/2/2014 on "Democracy Now".
