Peace Activist Carol Fisher Still in Jail

 

Peace activist Carol Fisher, the 54-year-old woman who was arrested and ordered to a psych unit for posting anti-war, anti-Bush World Can’t Wait posters, is still in jail.  Her pro bono attorneys have filed an appeal, but Fisher can’t be released on an appeals bond until the prosecution answers, which so far it has not.  According to Cleveland IndyMedia Fisher still has not received any of the prescriptions she needs.

According to World Can’t Wait, you can help Fisher by donating to her defense fund and by sending her reading materials from progressive sources.

All letters need to have a return address on the envelope. Please send correspondence to:

Carol Fisher
Prisoner # SO0257713
1215 W. 3rd St.
Cleveland OH 44113

Donations can be made out to the “Carol Fisher Defense Fund” and mailed to WCW PO Box 609034 Cleveland, OH 44109.

  1. You know in the soviet union anyone who dissented about the official party line was regarded as mentally ill. It seems this idea has hit the western fascist regimes as a good way way to deal with dissent. Oh what the patriarchs learn from each other. It is particularly insidious when older women are targeted. Afterall, we are supposed to knit socks and make cookies for the boys and not have an opinion or make waves in the ongoing death march of the patriarchy. How dare we be for life when the prevailing philosophy is to kill everything in the glory of ‘man’s’ achievements.

  2. Psychiatry has *always* been a way they deal with dissent here in the west, esp the dissent of disenfranchised people, women, people of color, lesbians, gays. Modern psychiatry had its origins in the middle ages during the witch burnings, explaining this gynocide in terms of pathology of the *victims* rather than the perpetrators of these atrocities.
