Today the Committee for the Defense of the San Francisco 8 has published an Open Letter to Attorney General Jerry Brown that appears in the San Francisco Bay Guardian. The Open Letter demands that all charges against Francisco Torres be dropped, citing the failed, costly and unethical prosecution.
Current signers illustrate the growing broad-based support that Francisco has both nationally and through out the world, including Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Danny Glover, members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the President and Vice President of the San Francisco Board of Education, as well as ministers, educators, organizers and supporters from all walks of life.
