Marilyn Buck is serving a 77 year term at the Womens Federal Prison in
Dublin about 45 minutes from San Francisco. She is the last political
prisoner housed at that prison which was where the Puerto Rican sisters
Carmen Valentine, Dylcia Pagan, the Rodriguez sisters, Alice and Lucy
were when Clinton pardoned them. It is also where Laura Whitehorn, now
living in NY and Linda Evans, now in Southern California were imprisoned
before they got out. Linda and Susan Rosenberg were pardoned by Clinton.
Marilyn a few months back won the PEN literary award for the best prison
poetry of the year, and has also become an accomplished potter. Most
important, she has stayed strong politically while incarcerated in a
system that offers little chance for her release.
