White House Vigil for Lynne Stewart

THE WHITE HOUSE VIGIL FOR LYNNE STEWART began June 17 and will continue until her release or death, vows her husband.

The continuing campaign to gain compassionate release for the grievously ill, imprisoned human rights attorney is in Washington, D.C., where Ralph Poynter and others wait at the White House for mercy and justice.

Despite being approved for compassionate release, Stewart continues to be held in Carswell Federal Prison in seriously deteriorating health, suffering with stage 4 cancer.

Ralph Poynter told the radio audience at the Rev. Pinkney Blogtalkradio show Sunday, June 23, that his wife's white blood cell count is practically nonexistent, and she is now in quarantine. 

To give a woman who is over 70 years of age a ten-year prison sentence is in effect a death penalty.
