Two Grand Jury Resisters Released Last Night

Two of the Pacific Northwest Grand Jury Resisters, Matthew Duran and Katherine Olejnik (aka Kteeo), are free after being held for five months in Federal prison – including two months in solitary confinement – despite the fact that there were no convictions or charges filed against them. The judge ruled that there was no reason to continue holding them, as they have proven their resolve not to testify.

We have proudly moved them from our active mailing list to the Free At Last! page. That makes 3 prisoners who have been released in the 6 days since we launched #OpPenPal. We like those numbers.

The remaining imprisoned grand jury resister, Maddy Pfeiffer, was moved out of solitary confinement. We hope to see him free in the near future as well.
