To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:
I request copies of any and all reports, including social media reports, correspondence, documents, emails, files, letters, memos, tapes, cds, audio, video, electronic, and/or other records about, related to, or referencing Micaela Ward, during the time period from November 2010 to the present. I prefer to receive the requested record in the electronic format in which it was created and/or is maintained.
I, Micaela Ward, am a civil liberties activist, citizen journalist and founding member of RevolutionTruth, formerly known as "3WC World Wide Wiki Citizens," (www.revolutiontruth.org, https://www.facebook.com/revolutiontruth, https://www.facebook.com/groups/revolutiontruthcomm/, https://twitter.com/RevTruth). The all-volunteer organization initially formed in support of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and whistleblowers in general. Through this volunteer work, I have had contact with staff of the Bradley Manning Support Network, (www.bradleymanning.org) and other supporters, including John Penley, activist, formerly of NYC, and Barrett Brown, self-proclaimed spokesperson for "Anonymous," now incarcerated in Texas. I have participated in several demonstrations in NYC with supporters of Bradley Manning, the ANSWER Coalition and the anti-war movement, Occupy Wall Street and StopNDAA.
I am assistant to Jennifer "Tangerine" Bolen, a plaintiff in and the coordinator of the NDAA lawsuit, Hedges et al v Obama et al, against the indefinite detention provisions in Sec 1021 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, (www.stopndaa.org, https://www.facebook.com/NDAALawsuit, https://twitter.com/stopNDAAnow).
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Micaela L. Ward
