Gerard Jean-Juste: 34th day in prison

8.23.05
Dear Friends:
Today is my 34th day in prison.  I am innocent of
all charges.  I am in prison with hundreds of others
who are suffering.
To all the people who are working on my behalf,
the stronger you make me become through all of your
prayers, actions and support, the more I am able to
serve my fellow prisoners, especially the many
political prisoners.
To the 29 Congress members who wrote and to the
many citizens of nations around the world, I say to
you – your nations become greater as you extend a hand
to me and the poor people I serve.
The more I am able to be strong despite my
illnesses and my time in prison, the more I am able to
serve the poor of our nation Haiti.
Your letters and advocacy bring me and many others
more hope. I thank you for all you are doing.
Gerard Jean-Juste, Haitian National Penitentiary
