British CO released from prison

Michael Lyons

British conscientious objector Michael Lyons was released on November 9, after serving four months in military prison for refusing orders to train and deploy to Afghanistan. Summing up his gratitude for the support he received while in prison, a Facebook message said Lyons now “has a new answer to the famous hypothetical question, What would be the one thing you would save if your house was on fire. Answer: The box of letters and cards of support received whist in prison!”
