Marius’ mother, Karin H Mason, has passed away

Karin Mason 10-14

Karin Hildegard Mason, age 76 of Canadian Lakes passed away December 3, 2014 at her home with family by her side. Karin was born May 4, 1938 in Stuttgart, Germany, the daughter of Karl and Gertrude (Kunberger) Schmauder. She was an amazing Mother, a dedicated teacher because of her love for children and she would say, “love and honor those around us and admire the beauty in life”. A smile was always on her face and she was so much fun to be around. She inherited her adventurous spirit from her parents and just simply loved life!

Those left to cherish her memory are two daughters, Marie Jeanette Mason and Germaine Anne (Stephen) Finley; one sister Gisela (Gerhard) Klumbach; four grandchildren, Andrei Stephens, Arianna Staiger, Stephanie Finley and Matthew Finley.

Luke O’Donovan http://letlukego.wordpress.com
Luke O’Donovan is a survivor of a homophobic attack in Atlanta, GA, was sentenced on August 12th, 2014 to 2 years in prison on charges that he assaulted those who attacked him. This was the epitome of a hate crime. Witnesses report seeing between 5 and 12 men attacking O’Donovan, stomping on his head and body, and stabbing him in the back while calling him a ‘faggot.’ Now Luke is doing time for defending himself. Because he has chosen to remain vegan while in prison, Luke will need as much commissary as possible in order to purchase extra food.

Marius Mason http://supportmariusmason.org/
We would like to let everyone know that Marius Jacob Mason will no longer be using the name Marie, and will be using male pronouns. We hope that you will all join us in supporting Marius through this transition, which will no doubt be extra challenging within the prison system.
Marius Mason is a long-time activist in the environmental and labor movements. In March 2008, he was arrested by federal authorities for charges related to two acts of property destruction that occurred in 1999 and 2000; no one was injured in either of them. He accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced on February 5, 2009 to just under 22 years. He is now serving the longest sentence of any “Green Scare” prisoner.

Write to Marius Mason

We encourage everyone to write to Marius Mason in prison:

Marie Mason #04672-061

FMC Carswell

Federal Medical Center

P.O. Box 27137

Fort Worth, TX 76127

Under no circumstances mention any illegal acts. Letters that mention other Green Scare prisoners may be rejected. Mason has a list of 100 pre-approved people he can write to; if you are not on that list, he will be able to receive your letter but not write back.

Everyone must use their first and last name when writing. All letters must be entirely in English. Be sure to include your return address on the envelope. You should also write his name and prisoner number on each piece of correspondence, as the prison tends to discard the envelope and then may "lose" track of who the letter is going to.

Last, do not send anything that is "affixed" to the letter or card - such as glitter and glue. Pen, pencil, crayon and paint are fine.

About Marius Mason

Marius Mason is a long-time activist in the environmental and labor movements. In March 2008, he was arrested by federal authorities for charges related to two acts of property destruction that occurred in 1999 and 2000; no one was injured in either of them. He accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced on February 5, 2009 to just under 22 years. He is now serving the longest sentence of any "Green Scare" prisoner.

The “Green Scare” is the name given to the recent arrests of animal rights and environmental activists who have been charged with acts of economic sabotage. Federal authorities have sought outrageous sentences (often Life in prison) and have publicly and legally labeled the activists as “terrorists” – despite the fact that no one has been killed or injured in any of the acts.

Supporting Marius Mason does not mean agreeing with the actions that he took -- but it does mean opposing the fear-mongering tactics of the federal government and the outrageous sentences they have imposed.
