Lucy, (Gary's girlfriend) is organising a gathering/demo/protest forGary (McKinnon) outside the Home Office in London this Tuesday at 4pm. I know its short notice but if you're able to attend or to spread the word in any way, it would be much appreciated.
The United States want to Extradite Gary to face a sixty year prison sentence and have even threatened him with "being fried" and as they want to try him in Virginia and they still have the Death penalty, this is very frightening. Since when do we extradite UK citizens for computer mis-use, which carried a community service sentence in the UK. An extradition done on the strength of an allegation alone for a non-violent crime (Gary has always denied causing any damage) but no Prima Facie evidence is now required.
Gary has recently been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. This would not prevent Gary being tried in his own country but should have prevented him from being extradited to a country that shows scant regard for Human Rights and now advocates and approves of Torture being used.
Please help if you can Janis (Gary's mum).
