I am helping a lady who has been arrested for growing cannabis. In South Africa where it is a Human Right and defended by the constitution.

 

She needs funds to defend her case. She has had everything taken away from her, has no money, no refridgerator/tv/appliances. 5 of her colleagues are still rotting in jail.

Cannabis is under attack in SA by an unknown group or groups.

(probably related to the previous Jacob Zuma's shamed government {corrupt/rotten as all hell} and all the filth coming out in SA papers right now ).  Our "Specialist Crime Fighting Unit" is a power unto it's own and has been given a huge budget to crack down on cannabis trade - a basic human right.  People are suffering in overcrowded prisons riddled with HIV and disease... because they grew a flower???

 

They are trying to tie up all the market channels before Cannabis is legalized fully - right now it is only a human right to grow your own and smoke.  Still illegal to sell and grow more than 3 bushes. People's rights are being trampled all over and are being locked up. We have to start a fund to help all the victims.  It's a $#%^ tragedy here in SA.  People die in prison here, get raped and contract AIDS.  (I have personally counseled prisoners in a Johannesburg prison.)

 

The need is simple: money for legal fees in an ongoing court battle.

 

South Africa is supposed to be a shining example with our Bill of Human Rights, yet, this is not entirely true on the ground.  We are all petrified. Please help us financially to defend those who have been locked up.  Families are suffering.   The only way we can fight back is in court.  Please help.
