Petitioning Judge Loretta Preska 

Judge Loretta Preska: Sentence Jeremy Hammond to Time Served

    1.  

    2. Petition by

      Jason Hammond

       
  1.  

  2.  

I have not seen my twin brother Jeremy since March 2012. In the time he has been jailed in another city, denied bail, held in solitary confinement, denied the right to see his family and friends and most recently, not even been allowed to phone us. Why? He pleaded guilty to leaking information from the private intelligence firm Strategic Forecasting, which revealed that Stratfor had been spying on activists and human rights defenders and selling that information to governments and corporations.

My brother is looking at spending a decade in prison for this leak, which the government is treating as a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the same law used to prosecute Aaron Swartz. My brother is a dedicated activist and gifted computer programmer. He has a heart of gold. He has never walked past a person suffering without reaching to help them. He is 28-years-old and has a lot of living to do and many brilliant contributions to make. He is my best friend. And I want him back.

Jeremy did nothing for personal gain and everything in hopes of making the world a better place.

Jeremy is facing a maximum sentence of ten years, but the minimum is zero. He has been in jail since March 2012 awaiting trial and now sentencing. It’s time for him to come home.

Can you join me in saying that Jeremy has spent enough time in prison and ask Judge Loretta Preska to give him a sentence of time served?

Jason Hammond

To: 
Judge Loretta Preska, Chief U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York 
I care deeply about the case of Jeremy Hammond, the young activist who is being sentenced in your court for a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Please consider granting him a sentence of time served. 

Jeremy has been incarcerated since March 2012, held in solitary confinement, and at times has not had the ability to communicate with his family. Outside of the opportunity you granted him to visit with his family in your courtroom, he has not been able to see his brother and his mother. The journey has been difficult for him and his family. 

I ask you for leniency in this case. Please use your discretion when sentencing Jeremy and consider granting him a sentence of time served.

Sincerely, 
[Your name]

Government Admits Activist Was on DHS “Lookout” List, Will Turn Over Investigation Documents and Destroy Copied Data

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 29, 2013

CONTACT: 212-549-2666, media@aclu.org

BOSTON – In a settlement reached with human rights activist David House, the government has agreed to destroy all data it obtained from his laptop and other electronics when he entered the U.S. after a vacation, the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Massachusetts announced today. House, who was then working with the Bradley Manning Support Network, an organization created to raise funds for the legal defense of the soldier who has admitted to leaking material to WikiLeaks, charged in a lawsuit that the seizure violated his Fourth Amendment rights by subjecting him to unreasonable search and seizure, and violated his First Amendment right to freedom of association.

In November 2010, Department of Homeland Security agents stopped House at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago and questioned him about his political activities and beliefs. They then confiscated his laptop, camera, and USB drive, which contained information identifying members and supporters of the Bradley Manning Support Network. The government copied House’s cell phone at the airport and held his laptop and other devices for 49 days. The data taken from House’s materials was then turned over to the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID), which concluded that it would not use the information.

“The government’s sweeping claim that it can search through our electronics at the border for any reason or no reason at all is flatly contradicted by the Fourth Amendment, which protects us from unreasonable searches and seizures,” said Catherine Crump, staff attorney with the ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project. “The tremendous amount of personal and business information that we can now easily carry around with us means that respecting the Fourth Amendment in all places – including the border – is more important than ever.”

Under the terms of the settlement, the government agreed to destroy all remaining data copied from House’s devices. The government will also hand over numerous documents, including reports describing Army CID’s inspection of House’s data as well as the DHS “Lookout” telling agents to stop House as he entered the country. The government further agreed to release reports on DHS agents’ questioning of House, which included inquiries about whether he knew anything about Manning giving classified information to WikiLeaks.

“The seizure of David House’s computer is a chilling example of the government’s overbroad ability to conduct a search at the border that intrudes into a person’s political beliefs and associations,” said John Reinstein, an attorney with the ACLU of Massachusetts. “Those rights were vindicated by the settlement we reached.”

In March 2012, the U.S. district court judge in the case rejected the government’s effort to dismiss the lawsuit, ruling that even if the government does not need suspicion to search a laptop at the border, that power is not unlimited and First Amendment rights remain intact. The settlement announced today is the result of months of negotiations following that decision.

“When my laptop was seized on American soil, I made a pledge to the everyday working people, clergy, and U.S. service members who make up the heart of Mr. Manning’s financial contributors: that their generosity would not be met with retaliation from corrupt elements within our government, and that their personally identifying information, placed at risk by the seizure, would be reclaimed from those who had ordered it seized,” House said.

“Today, with a settlement to reclaim this data realized through the pressure of the courts and the hard work of the ACLU, I have made good on my pledge. The government’s surrender of this data is a victory through vital action not only for the citizens put at risk, but also for anyone who believes that Americans should be free to support political causes without fearing retaliation from Washington.”

#opMonsanto

Hackers from the Anonymous collective claimed to have infiltrated the website for the biotech giant Monsanto, which has been the subject of recent international protests.

The cyber-attack was carried out as part of #OpMonsanto, an attempt to demonstrate against Monsanto’s reach into every aspect of the food industry, from nature to farmers to consumers. The corporation’s main website, Monstanto.com, appeared to have been briefly disabled Wednesday night.

It comes days after over two million people took part in rallies in 436 cities in 52 countries on May 25.

The organizers of the May 25 rallies call for labeling of GMO foods and further scientific research on their health effects. They also urge supporters to “vote with their dollar” by buying only organic products and boycotting Monsanto-owned companies. Besides that, they are urging a repeal of the so-called Monsanto Protection Act passed in the US Congress, and that the company’s executives and politicians who back them are held to account through “through direct communication, grassroots journalism, and social media.
