By Courage to Resist. December 9, 2008

The holidays are a difficult time for many folks, especially when separated from family and friends. Now imagine you’re a war resister imprisoned for refusing to fight in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Please take a few moments this holiday season to write a letter of support to a imprisoned objector. Better yet, organize your community to write letters to these brave people with the courage to resist.

Tony Anderson, Robin Long, and Daniel Sandate are currently jailed and are not expecting release until well into 2009. Benji Lewis, Blake Ivey and André Shepherd are publicly taking bold stands against war that may result in their eventual courts martial.

This PDF document contains brief profiles of these resisters, as well as addresses that letters can be sent to. Please feel free to print this out and pass it around at your letter-writing party.
