      Comit� de Apoyo a los Acusados por Vieques el Primero de Mayo
      Apartado 191792

      Last Thursday, Jos� Monta�ez Sanes - nephew of David Santes (R.I.P.), the
      Viequense whose death in 1999 from military bombing, sparked the four year
      campaign of civil disobedience that ended the US Navy presence here - was
      sent to Federal prison at Guaynabo by Judge J. Fust�. Monta�ez Sanes was
      sentenced to 18 months for his participation in actions last May first when
      some old Navy vehicles were burned and the security kiosk at the entrance to
      the ex base was knocked down.

      Lawyer Linda Backiel informed us yesterday that she visited Jos�, together
      with the others jailed for this case at MDC Guaynabo, and that all are in
      good health and spirit. Jorge Cruz, also sentenced to 18 months, will
      report in February to a federal prison in South Carolina, according to
      family members.

      We greatly thank the Rosenberg Foundation that has made committments to
      support the children of the accused and imprisoned for May First. Lawyer
      Rafael Rodr�guez made great efforts to coordinate this support with the CRDV
      and the families.

      These 'compa�eros' need our support and solidarity. The sentences range
      from four months to five years - in the case of Jose P�rez, from Mayaguez.
      It is crucial that we write them messages of love and support. Here's the
      necessary info:

      Name and prisoner number):
      MDC Guaynabo P.O. Box 2147 SJ, PR 00922-2147
