A message from political prisoner Robert Seth Hayes*

Revolutionary Greetings,

Family, Comrades, Friends and Supporters.

It's with great pleasure that I address this open letter to you, to 
update you and motivate you, much like your thoughts, letters and 
prayers encourage and motivate me. So let me begin by stating my 
health concerns and objectives.

To date, I am much better physically. It was touch and go back in 
December 2010 when damage to my health was being combated by me, my 
wife and you. We are still navigating through troubled waters where 
that's concerned, but I believe in the long run, we will prevail and 
accomplish a precedent. We will have refined health care administered 
to prisoners. More on that as it unfolds.

Next I'd like to take a moment out and discuss the present state of 
our legal objectives. Presently, I am engaged in an article 78 appeal 
process of my latest denial of parole. My attorney Ms. Cheryl Kates 
has outdone herself putting together this marvelous argument. 
Naturally there are no guarantees, but if there were any, I'd be home 
thanks to her compassionate effort. I see and sense great things 
unfolding via her latest effort.

That brings me to the point primary in this letter. In order to 
continue this legal battle we need to build up our defense funds. We 
are presently working towards a legal fundraising effort to help pay 
for this article 78.  I want to ask you if you can make a contribution.

I realize we have been this route before. Working towards a workable 
end and being disappointed time and time again because we did not 
gain our objective. For some the matter of trying again seems 
fruitless. I beg to differ.

I believe each and every stop taken thus far has moved our struggles 
forward and prepared us for the next level of difficulties. A journey 
of a million miles begins with the first step. Not only are we well 
on our way in paving a way for ourselves, but we are laying the 
ground work for others to benefit from our efforts. Isn't that what 
community work/support accomplishes? We are fulfilling our work 
efforts. We are veterans in this struggle and we must not delay our 
contributions to creating a just and unified world.

I am very thankful for your past efforts and those on the horizon. I 
am proud of your commitments and learn to be even more myself by 
observing your efforts. I've said this before, but I want to go on 
record stating it anew. You are wonderful. You've done so much in the 
past that has made a difference. I ask that you pick up the mantle 
and strike soundly again.

Thank you for taking this time to review this missive and thank you 
for all you do. A people united can never defeated. We are on a 
history making journey. And I look forward to seeing you at the finish line.

If you are able to make a financial contribution to help fund my 
parole appeal, please send funds to my finance officer Nate Buckley 
at 438 Massachusetts avenue, Buffalo, NY, and be sure to send an 
email to buckleynate at yahoo.com confirming what amount of money you 
sent so no money is lost in transit. You may make checks or money 
orders payable to "Nate Buckley." We raised the 3500 last year, 
"THANK YOU SO MUCH!" and we have less than half of the 1500, this 
year and lack a little less than 900. Any extra can really help Seth 
deal with his medical situation. Thank you so much.

Thank you

Forever Thankful,

Forever Encouraged.

In Struggle,
