Episode 65: September 27, 2013 – Larry Pinkney on Justice for Lynne Stewart and Compassion for All
Guest: Larry Pinkney
On this edition of Traces of Reality Radio: Guillermo is joined by writer, activist, and former political prisoner, Larry Pinkney. Guillermo and Larry discuss the case of Lynne Stewart, the “people’s lawyer” who, unless action is taken, will live out her last days in a government cage.
Larry shares Lynne’s story of humble beginnings, high profile court cases, defending the “un-defendable,” and makes the case for Lynne’s compassionate release from prison.
We also discuss the ways in which the American people have been propagandized by the rhetoric of the Global War on Terror (read Global War on You), the significant disconnect, at present, between what is “legal” and what is “just” or morally right, and call for compassion and dignity for all people.
