News from EcoPrisoners.org: “Justin Solondz plead not guilty to several federal charges in Tacoma, WA on Wednesday, July 27. The charges against Justin allege that he was involved in an arson at the University of Washington’s Center for Urban Horticulture in 2001. Some of the charges Justin is currently facing could result in a life sentence. Please stay tuned for more information on Justin and how you can help.”
NEW ADDRESS: Justin Solondz #98291-011, FDC SeaTac, PO Box 13900, Seattle, WA 98198.
Please send just letters at this new address. If you recently sent a letter to the previous address, please re-send something to the new address, as he may not have received your mail. Remember, Justin is in pre-trial, so the crimes he is charged with, relating primarily to ELF action in the Pacific Northwest, are all allegations.
REMINDER: BRIANA WATERS IS COOPERATING WITH THE STATE
Also from EcoPrisoners.org: “Briana Waters accepted a plea bargain on June 14th, which requires her full and complete cooperation with the state. It reads, in part, “Defendant shall cooperate completely and truthfully with law enforcement authorities in the investigation and prosecution of other individuals involved in criminal activity. Such cooperation shall include, but not be limited to, complete and truthful statements to law enforcement officers, as well as complete and truthful testimony if called as a witness before a grand jury, or at any state or federal trial, retrial, or other judicial proceedings. Defendant acknowledges that this obligation to cooperate shall continue after Defendant has entered guilty pleas and sentence has been imposed…” The plea agreement later states, “Defendant agrees that Defendant’s sentencing date may be delayed based on the United States’ need for Defendant’s continued cooperation…”
The “Statement of Facts” in the plea agreement implicates other people in the actions to which she is pleading guilty. This includes Justin Solondz (who is currently awaiting trial), Rebecca Rubin and Joseph Dibee (who have not been captured).

Sadly, she is no longer deserving of political prisoner status and will not receive any further support from the Earth First! Journal.
