We so are excited to announce that Marius received confirmation yesterday that he will be moving to general population at Carswell. As many know, this has been a long time coming and a request that Marius, his attorney, his family, and supporters have made repeatedly for him to be moved from the Admin Unit.
In general population Marius will be able to truly go outside for the first time in seven years, without the barriers of razor wire and concrete. He will also be able to participate in more educational programs and groups. Carswell’s general population has a large sunny communal visiting room that Marius’ family and friends will be able to see him in, rather than the small enclosed space with its own security detail. We are also eager to see if Marius will have better control over his own diet.
We are extremely excited for Marius but we will also not forget the 11 other people left on the Admin Unit, who will continue suffer from constant lock downs, social deprivation, and mental health neglect and indifference. We still strive to see a world without the admin unit, Carswell, and prisons. Free them all.
Marius is serving 21 years and 10 months (until 09-18-2027) for his involvement in an ELF arson at a University building carrying out genetically modified crop tests. Marius also pleaded guilty to conspiring to carry out ELF actions and admitted involvement in 12 other ELF actions.
