Gary has his parole hearing this September. We are optimistic, but we also know the reality of the tyrants that hold him in prison. They do not want to turn Gary lose because they are scared of the unity he can bring for folk…
Well, folks, if they do not parole him, both Gary and myself want to see their worst fears come true. Gary might be behind the prison walls, but I can speak for him. I have spoken for him for many years now. If Gary is not paroled, his wants the organizational lines to be broken and all of Folk stand together and protest his inhumane incarceration. Obama is freeing federal prisoners all the time but Gary Yarbrough isn’t one of them…and it is 99.9% chance that Obama doesn’t free Gary because 1. Gary is White and not a Muslim 🙂 2. Because of Gary’s beliefs. We came together once before for Gary. This time with more preparation and time, we can plan much bigger and wider area.
I will be going to see Gary in September, so I will know more then. Gary has never walked away or given up his beliefs. He has already stated that he would gladly give another 8 years for his Folk….so, Folks, if Gary is not paroled in September, it is time for us to give back to him what he gave to us.
Imagine a day in Gary Yarbrough’s life. In a very small cell, maybe let out an hour a day into a small caged rec area (if they have the available staff to take him), his communications stolen to try to keep him from writing to people, he sacrificed his family and his life. He has been in prison for 32 years. He is now a grandfather to grandchildren he has never seen. His children were just babies when he went to prison. He sacrificed basically his whole life. So, folks, it is time for us to start giving back to Gary Yarbrough. He don’t expect this. He loves Folks naturally, but me as his wife is asking this. He deserves this. He is willing to sacrifice another 8 years of his life and be almost 70 when he is released. He was 28-years-old when he went to prison. It is time for us to give back to Gary Yarbrough just a little bit of what he has given to us.
You can start by writing him. You can write him at Gary Yarbrough 09883-016, US Penitentiary Max, PO Box 8500, Florence, CO 81226-8500
I will have more details on protests and get togethers in September!
