The Jeremy Hammond Support Network has issued a statement regarding Jeremy’s confinement. We quote it in full, as it is a succinct and insightful response to the news:
We have received notification from Jeremy’s defense team that Jeremy has been placed in solitary confinement for an undetermined amount of time. I cannot go into the reported reasons for this gross attack on Jeremy’s rights but as a free citizen of this Country, I do have the right to find it very coincidental that Jeremy is in Solitary Confinement at the same time a motion to recuse Loretta Preska is being argued.
This is an outrage and one that cannot be tolerated. While Jeremy has now lost everything he loves, freedom, the ability to teach other inmates while he is incarcerated, reading and sharing his library of books etc, he is still able to receive some mail. It is very important at this time that we send those letters to Jeremy. It may be all he has left. This is really unacceptable but it is my belief that this is just another way to silence Jeremy and any mention of wrongdoing in this case. We stand in solidarity with Jeremy Hammond and hope that you will join us in fighting for Jeremy when he is not able to fight for himself.
