Breaking news: federal court victory for war resister kim rivera!

I've just learned that war resister Kimberly Rivera has won her most recent appearance in federal court.

From lawyer Alyssa Manning: "Justice Russell found that the Pre-Removal Risk Assessment Officer did not address properly the risk of differential punishment on the basis of political opinion and the evidence put forward in support of that risk."

This means that Kim is entitled to a new PRRA with a different PRRA officer.

We have a long way to go, but for today: WE WON!
