His goal is to secure the release of 2,000 prisoners still held for trial, and 100,000 held illegally without trial. He focusses upon two issues: stoping the transport of prisoners to the remote Island of Buru, and the release of women and children prisoners. The method of securing these objectives is intensive letter-writing aimed at large corporations. - BROADCAST: KPFK, 3 Apr. 1977.
