EDS NEW ADDRESS AND UPDATED INFORMATION
FTC OKLAHOMA CITY
FEDERAL TRANSFER CENTER
P.O. BOX 898801
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK 73189
This is eds new address for his facility in oklahoma. it is a transfer facility and he will only be there for between 3 weeks to 3 months until they determine which facility he will be housed in permanently. this is an important time for ed to talk to legal counsel because there is always a chance counsel can get him transfered to a prison closer to new hampshire so he can have access to the courts there. otherwise they will probably transfer him to a prison further away to keep him away from family and friends. anyone can keep up on eds whereabouts by going to the bureau of prisons website and there is an "inmate locator". he can be found with his name edward brown and his inmate number. if he is in transit to a new prison it will not show until he is on site at the new facility.
the inmate locator is here:
we also would like people to know that we are working very very hard at obtaining ed legal counsel, which we have had some success with this week. however there has been a slight set-back with a very large ice storm in oklahoma that may have prevented calls into the prison for at least a day. hopefully we will have some good news to report on that issue soon. however until then we ask that people do not call lawyers on their own to ask for their help. there have been several names of well known lawyers that have been mentioned and we would like people to know that if they start calling these people on their own then they may actually be contacting people we have already contacted and we do not want to scare these people away if they have offered help by deluging them with supporters emails or calls. we appreciate the help on this matter but it has been very difficult to get help for ed and now that we have reached a point where some people have offered to help we dont want to risk losing those ties. we hope you all understand this.
if people are concerned about ed and elaines welfare the right place to make calls would be to each of their "counselors" respectively.
elaines counselor's name is:
MR STEVE McMAHON
SAME ADDRESS AS ELAINE JUST C/O HIM
TO CALL HIM HE CAN BE REACHED AT: 203-743-6471
ed's counselor is:
UNKNOWN BECAUSE HE WAS RECENTLY TRANSFERRED. YOU CAN CALL THE NUMBER HOWEVER, AND ASK WHO HIS COUNSELOR IS, I JUST HAVENT HAD A CHANCE TO DO THAT YET. I WILL UPDATE THIS LATER WHEN I DO GET THAT INFORMATION.
if anyone has any concerns regarding ed and elaines welfare or you just have general questions about them these are the people to call. they are the counselors that are supposed to ensure the safety of each inmates mental and physical health. elaine tells me that her counselor has been brushing her off lately. she writes " my counselor is useless. he pretty much shrugs me off, then dashes away. he did resend the original request for permission to write, but never got back to me."
if these people start receiving calls in support of ed and elaine letting the counselors know that there are many, many people out here concerned about there welfare, maybe they will be treated better. it certainly cant hurt. tell them you have heard ed has been very sick and you are concerned and want to inquire about it. even if they blow you off they cant ignore a large quantity of calls which in itself will speak volumes! imagine 500 people calling the prison per week, or 1000, or 10,000 remember we have the power to take back control of almost any situation if we act together!
bob wolffe also wrote to me asking if there was support out here. i told him there was a lot of support but that most of it is split into 2 sides. one side being the "voyeur activist" just looking for good "entertainment" and the other side being people who are generally concerned but they are scared. scared to stand out, scared to end up on a list, scared to be shipped away to prison, scared to be forgotten, scared to be ridiculed, scared scared scared.... he wants everyone to know that the fear that you feel inside of you exists only in your head. he writes: "make sure people know that fear is mostly within, they must learn to face it and it will go away. "...."remind people that WE THE PEOPLE are the government! once WE assert our authority, the fear will be gone."
danny tells me that letters are like gold to him, as they are to all of the inmates, he has claimed indigent status so he does not want anyone sending him any money for his commissary account because it will cause him to lose his status and have to pay for everything out of his own pocket like filing fees and such. and with a case pending before the supreme court of new hampshire currently, that could get expensive quickly! lots of people have told me that they want to write to them but dont know what to say. in response to that i say, JUST SAY HI!! tell them your name, tell them where your from, how you heard about them, tell them thank you! tell them their sacrifice wasnt in vain. that what they did awoke thousands if not millions of people to injustice in our own country. tell them they wont be forgotten......just tell them something. with the exceptions of ed (who has his mail delayed or stopped) and danny (who is only allowed to send out 2 personal letters per week due to his indigent status) they will all respond to you, and it would be the best christmas gifts they could possibly get, to receive hundreds of letters from supporters in the week before christmas and the weeks leading up to their trials which start january 28th i believe. for those wondering what they can do to help, THIS IS IT! you can keep them from going stir crazy for the time they have to waste inside those walls!
anyone who has any questions or would like to send us a photo for our photo protest or offers of help please do so through my email at email@example.com. thank you.
