January 26th- Send a Card for Marie’s 52nd Birthday
Marie’s birthday is January 26. Please send her a card and brighten her day!
She loves to get mail from supporters and can receive mail from anyone — although she is limited in how many people she can write back.
Some ideas include:
* Photos of the wild you find inspiring
* Cards (handmade are always great)
* Notes of support
Be sure to check the guidelines here for the details on what is allowed/not allowed, especially when creating handmade cards. You may also want to include her name and prisoner number on the card in case it get separated from the envelope during processing.

About Marie Mason
Marie Mason is a loving mother of two and a long-time activist in the environmental and labor movements. In March 2008, she was arrested by federal authorities for charges related to two acts of property destruction that occurred in 1999 and 2000; no one was injured in either of them. She accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced on February 5, 2009 to just under 22 years. She is now serving the longest sentence of any “Green Scare” prisoner.The “Green Scare” is the name given to the recent arrests of animal rights and environmental activists who have been charged with acts of economic sabotage. Federal authorities have sought outrageous sentences (often Life in prison) and have publicly and legally labeled the activists as “terrorists” – despite the fact that no one has been killed or injured in any of the acts.
Supporting Marie Mason does not mean agreeing with the actions that she took — but it does mean opposing the fear-mongering tactics of the federal government and the outrageous sentences they have imposed.
