A Benefit for Barrett Brown and Jeremy Hammond

A Benefit for Barrett Brown and Jeremy Hammond

Free Barrett Brown and the Jeremy Hammond Defense Committee are collaborating to produce a night to jointly raise funds for these two prominent internet activists. All proceeds will be split evenly between the two; with half to Barrett’s legal expenses and half going to support Jeremy while he is incarcerated. This is a fundraiser event and variety show with notable speakers, musical performances, and the auctioning of items. Brown is an investigative journalist who exposed the world of private spying with Project PM while Hammond is the alleged source for WikiLeaks’ Global Intelligence Files. Barrett faces up to 105 years in prison and is awaiting trial, while Jeremy faces up to 10 years after taking a plea agreement. You can read about The Strange Case of Barrett Brown and The Rise and Fall of Jeremy Hammond.

  1. problem solved

    I am playing text/telephone/cell phone tag with some effeminate businesspeople. I seem to attract the time line of an idiotic subspecies of texters. I must remember that I am not the center of everyone's universe. But, with a knot on my head I can see no work 24/7 makes Jack a dull boy, Jack Turner. Now, he is NOT a fish. he is one of the good people. Jerr me and BB are fake and I spit up! fat guy derivative...go leap-duel. The ruddy dance, juggling texts, tweets, barkin' out orders. Put some cous-cous next to it (flames). Insults. She'll fuck you up. An ant is break us.

  2. ...because you can get anything. I know
    we've come a long way
    we're changin' day-to-day but tell me
    where do the children play?

  3. That guy Cohen -- and it flows through you --
    said "LOL" describing the Egypt.
    Aw, you make my world a sunny day.
    He took pleasures --
    turn up in sorrow
    lost in my song
    a minor bum's.
