MARGOT LAUGHTON HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM BERRIMAH JAIL

We have excellent news. Margot Laughton was today released from Berrimah Jail by the Northern Territory Supreme Court Justice Steven Bailey. Facing sentencing for cannabis offences, the 56-year-old indigenous woman was sentenced to time already served in prison, five months, and was released this afternoon.

Well done to everyone involved in the Free Margot campaign. Without your efforts, Margot would have been just one more faceless victim in the War on Drugs and she may have received a much longer sentence. Margot's case has received national attention.

Now we should turn our attention to our faceless brothers and sisters in Berrimah and Alice Springs jails for drug or drug related offences. We must keep the pressure up and continue to highlight the folly of the war on drugs and the damage wrought on our communities by the drug prohibition experiment.
