Take Action -- Help Free Lori Berenson

30 March 2009 health update and call to action
By Mark and Rhoda Berenson

To Friends and Supporters of Lori Berenson

Update on Lori’s HealthLori is in her 8th month of pregnancy and very excited and busy preparing for the birth. Unfortunately the pregnancy has exacerbated her back pain and she expects to have back surgery as soon as appropriate after the baby is born.

Call President Obama and Write to Secretary of State Clinton. Now that President Obama has settled into office, it is time for us to put a concerted effort into enlisting his help in securing Lori’s release.

Lori has now served 13 years and 5 months of her 20-year sentence. She has been a model prisoner and she is eligible for conditional liberty in November 2010. However, given the precarious nature of her health and the forthcoming birth of her baby, we will be urging President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton to secure Lori’s immediate release.

1-Please call the White House “hotline operator” (202-456-1111). Tell the “hotline” operator that you would like President Obama to secure the release of Lori Berenson who has been wrongfully imprisoned in Peru for more than 13 years and whose health is precarious.

2-Please write to Secretary of State Clinton. For your convenience a letter for you to print and sign appears on the recently updated website. The direct link is
Send your letter to:
The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State; US Department of State
2201 C Street NW; Washington, DC 20510

Thank you for your continued support.
