war resister matt lowell has received a stay of deportation

After a long day - and evening - of waiting, we've learned that US war resister Matt Lowell will not be deported tomorrow. WHEW!

As in the cases of Jeremy Hinzman and Corey Glass, a federal court has ruled that Matt should not be forced to return to the US at this time. Matt can now ask the court for leave to appeal. If granted that leave, he can then appeal the decision of the Immigration and Refugee Board.

Many, many thanks to the wonderful Alyssa Manning for successfully arguing Matt's case, and to all Matt's supporters, especially the crew in London who has spearheaded the fight.

Another victory! Let them stay!
