DRUM: May 11 Vigil Cancelled Due to Behind The Scenes Legal Developments

Below is an announcement that just went from Desis Rising Up & Moving:

The vigil planned for May 11th in York, PA has been CANCELLED, as the hearing has been CANCELLED due to behind the scenes legal developments. Please get the word out!

Another update: we all collected 30 letters of support from organizations across the country, 150 letters of support from individuals, and 300 signatures (mostly youth!) on petitions. Congrats to all!

This is not likely the end of this battle...for now, we can all put our energy into raising funds for the families. You can send a tax-exempt donation online at or mail checks written to:

Emergency Family Fund / CAIR NY
c/o 9-11 relief program / Adem Carroll, ICNA
166-26 89th Avenue
Jamaica, NY, 11432

If you would like to direct your contribution to A and T and their families, please write that on the memo of your check. Any excess donations will be used for some of the countless other detainee families facing similar circumstances.

In solidarity,
DRUM--Desis Rising Up and Moving

Howdy! This blog post couldn't be written any better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I will send this information to him. Pretty sure he'll have a great read.
