This issue of Fire Inside is dedicated to women who have been victimized by the so-called drug war and especially those doing incredibly long sentences because of mandatory minimums and Three Strikes.
In particular, we dedicate this issue to Hamedah Hasan who successfully got her life sentence reduced to 12 years. Her new sentence is being appealed by the U.S. attorneys and we all hope for the best. Hamedah writes to Fire Inside: “I feel absolutely great! …God has blessed me with many supportive hard working people throughout this ordeal for whom I am very grateful.”
Hamedah, for your dedication, hard work and perseverance in fighting for your freedom, we dedicate this issue to you.
