PLEASE BRING SCOTT SISTERS FLYERS WITH YOU THE NEXT TIME YOU GO OUT!!
With the level of activities picking up, the Scott Sisters need to have a voice and be represented as fully as possible!
We're calling on everyone to please participate in helping to distribute Scott Sisters flyers at upcoming marches, rallies, speaking events, and wherever people will be at so that their case can receive as much publicity as possible.
But don't stop there!
Keep some flyers in your car and/or bag to hand to people or even to send out. Drop some off at churches, temples, hair shops, and even your local clubs and hangouts, wherever you can imagine!
With no resources, our mission has to be to do everything that we can so that we know within ourselves that we did our best to make sure that we informed as many people as we could possibly reach that this truly atrocious case exists. These women have been suffering in prison for 15 years and counting for no good reason while they watch people around them be released who were convicted of murder!!
The flyer is at http://www.scribd.com/doc/28847395/Scott-Sisters-Flyer-Black-23-Mar-2010-20
There's also a press release at the blogspot site that can be printed out and sent to publications, radio stations, tv shows, the gamut.
Thank you so much for your support of these women, this horrific, terrible wrong will get right with all of your continued responses, ideas, and action!
Together we can make their freedom a reality!! And what a fantastic day that will be!

Jamie Scott has written extensively about the conditions of her unjust incarceration and recently submitted an update to share on behalf of herself as well as all of the women in the bldg. where she is being housed.
First, she remains grateful for all of the calls, e-mails and letters that went out on her behalf before, she is in a slightly improved situation. She is now under a warden who is treating her more fairly and has a job in the kitchen and so is finally able to at least get some time off of the unit.
Her main concern is the building itself, and states that it's the worst conditions she has ever lived in. She and others are in the part of the prison called "quickbed" because it was built so fast. It was only supposed to be built to empty the county jails and is not fit for humans to live in. When it rains, it rains directly into the unit. Mold is knee deep in the showers and they are unsafe with rain everywhere. The building has not had hot water for over a month and some of the women do not bathe at all. Jamie, herself, is sick with a bad cold as a result of bathing in cold water. They are supposed to have two microwave ovens there but don't have any, so they are unable to even heat up water to bathe with. When they ask the warden about this terrible situation, they are told that it is being worked on. Furthermore, she reports that the beds are not five feet from each other, when the policy states
they are supposed to be farther apart.
The "quickbed" is located at CMCF2/A-Bldg.
