|As many of you know, on April 8th, 2010, an anti-police demonstration took place in Olympia, WA. Over 50 people marched through the streets as a part of the West Coast Days of Action Against Police Violence. 29 arrests were made. Police came in with pepperballs, batons, etc. to disperse a march — you know the drill.One of those arrests was Paul French who was convicted of felony assault of an officer. Paul got several months and is in dire need of commisary. He is currently in debt to the prison for medical expenses and unable to buy anything from commisary (not even a toothbrush). To write to him, please write:|
Paul Joseph French
C/O Thurston County Corrections
2000 Lakeridge Drive SW
Olympia, WA 98502
As with writing other prisoners, remember that what you say can hurt them. Don’t send in anything aside from paper and don’t write anything that could hurt them (don’t discuss their case!).
If you would like to donate money, you can send him a postal money order in the amount of your choice. Folks in Olympia are hard at work trying to raise over a thousand dollars to pay for his expenses so please chip in.
Support our political prisoners!
