Ruth,   Marilyn wasn’t able to contact you through the website, so she asked me to forward this to you. If you have any questions, let me know.   Liam         Liam, I'm finding there is no link per se because this was all direct messaging on twitter.  So perhaps the best way is to vouch for my authenticity to Ruth Kovacs and ask her to email me or call me. 503-232-02837 Just ask her to set up a Twitter account and then follow MumiaAbulJamal.  Ask her to follow me as well: kamala22.  The guy's name is Mark and he's always looking for feeds from all over the world.  He called me his Portland connection but it's too big for me.  That's why I'd like to introduce the two of them.  Would you forward this message to her, Liam?  Thanks so much, my friend. Sincerely, Marilyn Lipko kamala22us@yahoo.com
