My name is Akos. I came across this forum because I just recently discovered who Assata Shakur is. I saw the pictures of the Scott sisters on the front page. At first I admittedly didn't want to get involved but as I read their story, I was heart broken. So I sent an email to the superintendent of the prison, and also I will sign the petition. I'll also write to Jamie and Gladys and let them know they're not alone.
ETA: I sent a CC to their mother Evelyn and she just wrote back to me thanking me for writing and also to share what she's gone through. She said she hasn't been able to afford a lawyer for them and that Jamie's health isn't so good these days because she hasn't been getting the right medication. Her email brought me to tears. I'm at a loss for words to say.
