3)Write a Letter or send a postcard to Lex Wotton
I'm convinced from personal experience in hostile prison environments that letters or postcards from around the world to Lex will have a positive effect on morale and staff attitude.
A simple postcard will suffice. A recent book on Nelson Mandella posted to Lex was refused by prison authorities, so they don't sound too progressive up there in Townsville - a military town with a reputation for racism (recently a group photo of diggers in Ku Klux Klan outfits with aboriginal soldiers seated in the front row made the mainstream media!)
So as the case in all prisons your correspondence will be read by prison staff, so don't write anything that could further endanger Lex.
* Note the correct spelling of his name when addressing the correspondence...
