Betty's Release from ACCW today 8:15 AM

Officials from Alouette Correctional Centre for Women have confirmed that Mrs Krawczyk will be released along with 2 other inmates Tuesday September 25th at 8:15AM.

Betty Krawczyk has been incarcerated at ACCW since March 5th 2007 for breaking a court injunction granted to Kiewiett & Son's. Betty along with other protesters took part in a blockade in an attempt to stop the destruction of Eagleridge Bluffs in West Vancouver. This fragile eco-system was obliterated for the expansion of the Sea to Sky Highway as required for real estate developments, with the official pretext of building infrastructure for the 2010 Olympics.
