Petition for the release of Laura Ling

Laura Ling, who is a native Sacramentan and sister of Lisa Ling (from the TV show Scratch back in the day, and on The View more recently), is being held prisoner in North Korea along with another journalist, and will stand trial this Thursday for entering the communist country illegally.  Ms. Ling and her co-worker were doing a story about North Korean refugees in China at the time.  The North Korean government is claiming they were conducting "hostile activities" while in the country illegally, and it is speculated that they could be sentenced to 5-10 years in a brutal labor camp.  If you don't know, North Korea is run by an evil dictator very unfriendly to the USA, not to mention to his own people.  This is a very unfortunate situation, but since Laura is one of our own, I wanted to spread the word.  I'm not exactly sure what we can do against an evil foreign dictator, but if nothing else please sign this petition letting the North Korean government know that we are appalled at their treatment of these American journalists, and calling for their immediate release.
