Tom Manning Moved to Marion

Tom Manning Moved To Marion

Just a note to inform you of my recent change of address. While in my 4th year of being held in the control unit at Trenton, N.J., state prison. I applied for a contact visit with my children, who were to be brought down from Maine by two friends who had just returned from Cuba. My visit was denied, and on the day I'd requested, April 23rd (one day short of 7 years of captivity), I was told I was being remanded for court, and was promptly chained up and shipped out of the prison and conveyed (U.S. marshals, state police, prison guards) to Maguire Air Force base, from where I was lear jetted to Marion federal Penitentiary (the last time I'd been loaded onto a lear jet on this military base, Ed Mead was already aboard, when we were flown up to New England for the Ohio-7 Sedition Conspiracy Trial).

So here I am, not knowing what my status is, whether I'm doing my federal sentence (53 years for anti-imperialist bombings and conspiracy) or my state sentence (double life plus twenty) for the self-defense killing a N.J. state trooper, or on interstate compact, or what?

Bill Dunne and Tim Blunk were recently transferred out of Marion, to Terre Haute and Lewisburg, respectively. I was hoping, along with your redirecting my PLN subscription to Marion, you can put a blip in the newsletter concerning our change(s) in address. Bill, Tim and myself. It would be a great help as your newsletter gets to many of the people who'll need to know of this change.
