Michael Lyons lost his appeal against his sentence at the Military Appeals Tribunal in the Royal Courts of Justice today, 13 October. The Dale Farm Travellers lost their case in the Royal Courts of Justice yesterday. Seems justice is in short supply.
More information about Michael and his connection with Bradley Manning here.
This ruling means that Michael will have to serve another four weeks at the military prison in Colchester. Letters and cards mean a lot and are likely to be especially appreciated by Michael in the next days and weeks, so get yer pens and paper out. Information about writing to Michael Lyons here.
It's a long and expensive journey for Michael's wife Lillian to visit him.
