      Dear Friends,

      Leslie was arrested on the 22nd day of her hunger strike in Senator Lieberman's office and charged with "Unlawful Entry".  The court hearing was last Thursday and she was hoping the charges would be dropped.  She left a message with Clarine, the senator's chief of staff, every day for four days asking her if Senator Lieberman still planned to press charges, but her calls went unanswered.  She thought he might have a change of heart because their meeting went so well.  Also, she didn't enter his office unlawfully; she simply walked in to make an appointment.  According to his office rules, a person may be charged with "loitering" if she/he is in his office for more than ten minutes without an appointment. She was handcuffed and taken away in less than five, probably because they didn't want to risk the embarrassment of having her faint in his office again.

      Leslie asked a CodePink www.codepink4peace.org/ lawyer to represent her at the hearing.  She was kind enough to say yes as she was also planning to represent two of Leslie's CodePink sisters, Janet and Heather.  They had yelled out, "Yea Barbara (Boxer)!" and clapped in the Congressional Gallery and were arrested for "Interrupting Congress" which can result in a felony charge. The lawyer requested a continuance for Leslie, but it was denied.  Now she can be arrested and taken to jail if she's stopped by the police for any reason.  We're leaving for Connecticut tomorrow to begin our campaign to promote CodePink's Cities for Peace in Iran: http://www.codepinkalert.org/article.php?list=type&type=135
      You can be sure we'll be driving carefully.

      Peace and Freedom,

      Jes & Leslie
