Worldwide Rallies to Free Marc Emery - Saturday, September 18
Activists are calling for worldwide rallies in support of 'Prince of Pot' Marc Emery on Saturday, September 18, 2010 - a week after he is sentenced in an American courtroom for operating a marijuana seed business in Canada. Start a rally in your home town today!
Marc is a political prisoner behind bars in the US for successfully selling millions of cannabis seeds through a mail-order Internet service and using the profits to fund marijuana legalization efforts in North America and around the world.
Marc was extradited to the US by the Conservative government of Canada and is currently imprisoned at SeaTac Federal Penitentiary in Washington State (send Marc mail!). He will be sentenced in early September to an expected five years in US jail.
Canadian Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews will begin considering Marc's repatriation to Canada through the treaty transfer process shortly after he is sentenced. Help to remind Vic Toews and the Conservative Government that Canadians and people around the world want Marc Emery brought back to Canada and set free!
Rallies are planned for SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2010 in cities around the world.
