Tom Manning has been imprisoned 28 years. He is currently serving
a 53 year federal sentence for a series of bombing carried out
by the United Freedom Front in the 1980's. The bombings targeted
properties of the U.S. military and corporations because of
their complicity in waging wars in Central America and collaboration
with apartheid South Africa.

After completing his current sentence Tom must begin a life sentence in 
New Jersey for felony murder of a state trooper. Although acquitted of 
intentional murder, Tom was convicted for leaving the scene following a 
shootout between the trooper and Tom's comrade Richard Williams. (Think: 
Assata Shakur) Richard died in prison following a long period of medical 
neglect by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

We do not want this to happen to Tom.

In April, 2010 the Bureau of Prisons ignored a deadly infection in Tom's 
knee until an outside
doctor intervened and Tom was hospitalized. He spent the next 5 weeks 
chained to a bed as
bone and infection were removed from his knee. After the operation he 
couldn't walk. It's now three years later and he still can't walk.

In November, 2010 Tom was sent to the Federal (prison) Medical Center at 
Butner, NC for
knee replacement surgery. He received the surgery - 20 months later yet 
he still cannot walk because he's not received the necessary physical 
therapy, and because a severely damaged shoulder prevents him from using 
a walker and crutches.

Although an outside doctor highly recommended shoulder replacement 
surgery, a "committee"
of BOP bureaucrats recently denied the doctor's recommendation. Tom must 
have shoulder surgery and physical therapy if he's to have any chance at 
walking again. Presently he remains in a
wheelchair and is held in a Butner isolation unit where he's been for 
the past 30 months.

Please CALL OR FAX  the warden at Butner Federal Medical Facility
Phone: 919-575-3900 Fax: 919-575-4801
asking that Tom Manning be given a shoulder replacement and the 
necessary physical
therapy to enable him to walk again.

Send Tom words of love and support.
