Dear Friends:

People interested in assisting the campaign to free Efren Paredes, Jr. using the internet are encouraged to copy and paste the following message in e-mails, and post it on bulletin boards, blogs, web sites, and anywhere else you can post it on the internet.

Many blogs and web sites have comment sections. In those sections you can copy and paste the message that follows. If there is a subject line to enter text into I suggest using "Innocent 15-Year-Old Latino Honor Student Sentenced to Life in Prison".

Below is the text to be copied and pasted:
