Thank you in advance for reading this and for any support you can give:
In 2004 Schapelle Corby was a perfectly healthy young woman, happily visiting her sister for a holiday in Bali. When she found 4.2kg of marijuana in her bag on arrival, her world was shattered. Sacrificed by her own government, she was sentenced to 20 years in a squalid prison cell.
She is still there, but is now broken. She is mentally ill, diagnosed by one of Australia’s top psychiatrists, and only just hanging on by a thread. Even this clear breach of her human rights is overlooked, and she remains deserted, and even scorned by a hostile media.
This situation is a stain on humanity. Please support Schapelle Corby by signing these petitions, urging her immediate release, and the end to the torture of a seriously ill woman:
Please help spread the word, and please fight for Schapelle in any way you can. Her life can still be saved if she is granted clemency by the President of Indonesia. She has been in prison for seven years now suffering in horrific conditions.

Sacrificed by her own government
as an aussie – WTF was the australian government suppose to do when someone in a foreign country is found guilty of a serious crime and jailed in that country??? were we suppose to get the army to invade? its Indonesia, there are signs screaming everywhere they have the death penalty AND her family have done nothing but pimped out stories to trash magazines (including some mens magazine girly pics by the sister) to line their own pockets. if anything her family have made her plight worse
im one of the people that think she is innocent but i believe one of her family that she was travelling with is as guilty as sin
edit: and anyone that thinks a petition signed by foreigners will get the Indonesian government to react do not understand the Indonesians – if anything publicity makes it harder for her to get any leniency

@eloping: I agree! I was trying to keep my trap shut. LOL. But you did pluck the words right out of my mind.
AND so many Aussies go over there, thinking they can flaunt the laws. How many have been in the press recently getting jailed or injured. I live in the community where that stupid 14 year old Lews Mason comes from. Lets just say the community didn’t have much sympathy for him. All the press sends one message to me, don’t go to Bali. You either get put in prison, injured, robbed, or who knows what else. No thanks. I think i will explore this great country first.

i know Firie! i do think that girl is guilty by association with that trashy family but she either knew about it and is covering for someone (her brother or sister) or didnt know about it and is still covering for someone (her brother or sister).
20yrs is too f’ing long for what she was found guilty of but you dont mess with the Indo government and you dont publically embarrass them as that makes it worse
the Bali brats family did the right thing (media wise)- keep your head down, shut up and be polite works better in the courts
