Get out your pens!

Ok, librarians, bookish types tend to also be pretty prolific letter writers, so break out the stationary and find some stamps, because we’ve got another political prisoner who needs some mail.

Jerry, an anarchist here in NYC, got locked up yesterday for grand jury contempt, which I previously wrote about on the People’s Library blog in connection to the Pacific Northwest grand jury resisters.  See Jerry’s support page for more info and for letter writing guidelines.
