While celebrating the more human conditions, Herman and the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3 emphasize that the transfer from solitary is not enough. They are asking folks to continue supporting Amnesty International’s call for humane release. The Angola 3’s Robert H.

Corvid College Boston is now the Greater Boston Free School
The following announcement is from an email sent by organizers of the Greater Boston Free School. Check out http://corvidcollege.wikidot.com/ for updates and contact information.

We who have been making Corvid College happen, since Eric’s departure in

will benefit most from a new organization, if mostly new by name. We have
realized that we wish to fly under a different free school banner.
