*Please forward the campaign below widely and take action for Seth Hayes
It only takes a few minutes to make a difference in the life of a
political prisoner and we need everyone to call.
The situation is serious.
*Seth Hayes’ Health Continues to Deteriorate due to Medical Neglect –
Call in this week!*
Seth’s medical condition continues to worsen, and he has not been
evaluated or treated for potentially life-threatening symptoms despite
following formal medical care request procedures within the prison.
Because the medical staff at the prison and Health Services of the
Department of Correction continue to neglect his medical needs despite
numerous calls from concerned medical providers and other citizens, we
urge both Commissioner Annucci and Governor Cuomo to exercise oversight
and see to it that Seth finally receives proper medical care.
