ELF Eco-prisoner speaks about support and her coming release

This block print was made by sadie while in prison, inspired by Coast Salish native art

The following letter from eco-prisoner Joyanna Zacher (“Sadie”) was sent to the Earth First! Journal in response to an effort at renewed correspondence after several years of non-communication, at her request.

Along with desire to share the value and insight she offered us here on the EF! Journal collective, we also decided to post her words and art on the EF! Newswire to encourage you all write letters of support to Sadie, who is on her home stretch from a 7-year prison sentence for ELF actions. On May 1st she will be released to a halfway house. Until then, send letters to:

Joyanna Zacher #36360-086, FCI Dublin, Federal Correctional Institution, 5701 8th Street, Camps Park, Unit F, Dublin, CA 94568
