    Lynne Stewart in dire health

    Only a few years ago, Lynne Stewart was serving a ten-year sentence on bogus ‘material support for terrorism’ charges. From behind the prison walls, she extended her solidarity to the Anit-War 23, investigated under the same material support statute.

    She wrote, “Our principle of non-collaboration has so far proved robust. There has been no wavering. Our support must continue to convince everyone involved that these are issues of principle. There can be no compromise. Resisters must be defended to the utmost of our strength and abilities.”

    A tireless campaign, led by her husband, Ralph Poynter, won Lynne’s freedom on December 31, 2013. Since then, she has waged a dual fight against her cancer, and the injustice that plagues our world. She has continued to support the Anti-War 23, and spoken out in defense of Rasmea Odeh.

    This week, Lynne’s health has taken a terrible turn. According to a statement by those close to her, “Our beloved People's Champion Lynne Stewart suffered a major stroke, the latest complication from the cancer that has now spread throughout her body and invaded her brain. She is resting comfortably at home, but can only speak sporadically. Her doctor has said she does not have much time left.”

    Stewart is surrounded by loved ones, and they have launched an emergency fundraising campaign to assist with her on-going personal needs. We encourage friends of CSFR to stand with Lynne for this final journey – click here to send a donation.

    Tribute from Puerto Rican former political prisoner Dylcia Pagan

    Lynne Stewart - My Comrade, Sister Warrior Woman

    During the 20 years of my Revolutionary Sabbatical, there wasn’t a birthday of mine that Lynne forgot. To me it was always my personal New Year's greeting from her.

    I have shared many memories in my life with her. She was always there with unconditional love, support from her revolutionary heart and soul. She is truly a woman warrior because what took precedence in her life was struggle for human rights, Political Prisoners in all of the movements of true struggle. There was Lynne.

    Her smile and eyes were always filled with determination striving for a victorious result. I am very fortunate to have had her in my life. The distance of time and place didn’t matter - I knew she was there.

    Lynne, Hermana de Lucha!
    Te amo Hoy, Manana y Siempre
    Hasta la Victoria Camarada
    I carry you in my heart
