FREE LYNNE STEWART! Screening, Discussion, Call to Action
A film, discussion, and call to action for Civil Rights attorney Lynne Stewart who represented the poor and unpopular over many decades, and recently was sentenced to 10 years in prison related to her representation of a client in a terror-related case.

**A portion of the proceeds go to Lynne Stewart's defense fund.**

Lynne Stewart - An American Story
Dir. Francis Van Den Heuvel, 2009, 78 min.
Lynne Stewart has served tirelessly as a defense attorney for those who have had the greatest difficulty obtaining adequate representation - controversial, sometimes unpopular figures, indigent and working class people who are up against powerful interests. In 2005, Lynne Stewart found herself in the position of defendant, at the center of the Bush administration's attack on the American justice system in the wake of the September 11th attacks. Her case brought into question strongly held judicial traditions like habeas corpus and the right of a defendant to have adequate legal counsel. Her conviction (originally two years, re-sentenced to ten years) has far reaching implications for the legal rights and freedom of speech of all Americans. While the film provides a detailed account of her case, the discussion to follow will provide an update and call to action around her current situation.

AFTER THE MOVIE:
Discussion with Ralph Poynter (Retired Private Investigator, Lynne' partner and soulmate), Brenna Stewart (Lawyer, Lynne and Ralph' daughter), Ramsay Clarke (former US Attorney General), Colia Clark (Green Party Candidate for US Senate, NY Seat), Betty Davis (co-founder of New Abolitionist Movement), Lisa Davis (Take Back WBAI committee), and many other friends and supporters of Lynne Stewart.
