How to Support Daniel Hale

On July 27th whistleblower Daniel Hale was sentenced to 45 months in federal prison for exposing the US drone program. CODEPINK has known Daniel since he spoke at our Drone Summit in 2013. There are a few ways you can support Daniel at this time: 

1. Sign the petition to President Biden asking him to pardon Daniel Hale. 

2. Visit to see updates from his closest friends and allies. 

3. Write Daniel a letter! 

Write on plain white paper and black ink.

Daniel Everette Hale 26069-075
USP Marion
U.S. Penitentiary 
P.O. Box 1000
Marion, IL 62959

Use plain white paper, no cards, with black or blue ink, handwritten or printed. Use standard size envelopes, no packages. You can send up to 6 pages, double-sided. Please use your full legal name and a physical address as the return address, not a P.O. Box. Also be aware that Daniel can't respond to group or organizational letters, only to individual persons. Daniel can receive photos (in color) in the mail, fun memes, transcripts (such as of interesting podcasts) and printouts of news articles. He is hoping for articles you found compelling, work out routines to help pass the time, and words of affirmation! Hand drawings are allowed, and we encourage them. Daniel has received a generous inundation of reading materials – he sends his thanks, and asks to hold off for now unless you get a specific request from him.

4. Share Daniel's story on social media.

    Such a brave guy. Its so sad & awful to be an American & be forced to pay taxes towards funding the power games of warmongers, illegal wars, genocides,crimes against humanity & on top it to be harassed,threatened & branded a traitor if you object to being exploited in this way.
    As well as being condemned as a communist if you are opposed to bombings of innocent civilians,men,women and children & bullied for being unpatriotic if you don’t celebrate US army massacres wiping out local families every now and then be it in Afghanistan,Syria,Iraq,Libya & many other countries.

    Thank God for Whistle Blowers. Why is anything hidden from the US public.? We pay for it after all. Stop taking our taxes if the government wants to keep secrets.
