Today news has come of another letter sent to his family by Kieron last week. The BBC has details here:

It's not easy reading, but Kieron does assure us that his basic needs are being met.

"The food is basic or grim but I'll not starve. The guards can't communicate but are polite and harmless, likewise my cell mate can barely string two words of English together but he is fine with me."

There is also coverage in the Times (paywall):

You can now donate to the Free Kieron fund through PayPal by clicking on the 'Donate' button on the right-hand side of this site, or by visiting the Donate page. Also added to site is a 'How to help Kieron' page which contains a simple list of all the things you can do to help Free Kieron. This is also a permanent link at the top of the page.

You may also have noticed the wording of the banner has slightly changed, to 'Journalist not a pirate', from 'Journalist not activist'. This is so avoid any possible suggestion that the campaign is making a judgement about the imprisonment of Greenpeace activists. The only purpose of this site is to Free Kieron - click the link at the top of this page to see how you can help.
