Corby?s freedom fighters sign up

By MEGAN KINNINMENT

PETITIONS urging Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to free convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby have appeared on telegraph poles at Bangalow.

The petitions implore the Indonesian President to revise the country's anti-smuggling laws so the 27-year-old Gold coast woman, sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment in Indonesia, can return home.

One of the first to sign was Bangalow resident Sam Buckle, 27, who works at the Choux Choux cafe and patisserie.

"I didn't hesitate to sign it," Mr Buckle said. "It doesn't take a genius to recognise she didn't do it.

"Why would you take marijuana from Australia to sell it in Bali?"

Colleague Ashley Cooper, 25, of Byron Bay, also added her signature.

"I am undecided about her guilt," Ms Cooper said. "But, even if she is guilty, the sen- tence is ridiculous."
