**UPDATE 03/22/13: Prince has been bailed out. Please send letters of support to someone else on our mailing list. Thank you.**
During the 2012 MayDay protests, Prince was attacked, tased, arrested, held for 72 hours, brutalized and then released with no charges. The DA quietly filed charges later. A warrant was issued for his arrest and Oakland PD came to his home on 3/19, taking him into custody. He’s facing 3 felonies and a misdemeanor. His son is due to be born at end of this month.

This morning Andrew Auernheimer, aka @rabite, aka weev, was sentenced to 41 months in Federal prison. He will also be on supervision for 3 years after his release and owes $73,000 in restitution. His lawyers promptly announced their plan to appeal.
His crime? Accessing iPad user information available publicly on the web, which should have been password-protected and encrypted. Now he is a felon under CFAA. Apple and AT&T suffered no such repercussions for their glaring security error.
Before his sentencing, Andrew left admins of #OpPenPal in charge of coordinating book shipments. Once we know where he is being held we will share information on how to send him books and letters. Keep an eye on this blog and @OpPenPal for updates.
Today marks one year that our brother and comrade Jeremy Hammond has been imprisoned by the Federal government.
He has been denied bond, and therefore the opportunity to aid in his own defense. He has been denied a fair trial with an impartial judge. He has been placed in solitary confinement and denied visits from family or friends for the next year.
You can read a letter Jeremy wrote last month from solitary confinement here: Jeremy Hammond on Aaron Swartz & the Criminalization of Digital Dissent
Join us in sending a card or letter to Jeremy to let him – and his opponents – know that he has our continued love and support.
