People probably have lots of different perceptions of us. I honestly haven’t met a single person who would wish me bad things to my face. I think that since the time we were freed from prison, what happened to us back then has now become pretty commonplace - it’s just something that happens to a lot of people. You open the newspaper and you read about someone who went to meet someone else, and suddenly that person is in jail. It’s now part of everyday life. And our sentence of two years is quite small – lots of people get longer sentences for nothing. It’s important to speak up about this. Each person has a voice – you don’t need any special set of skills, you can just go do something about it if you feel you need to.
