Suggested phone script:

   Hello, my name is _______.

   I'm calling regarding the case of Dmitry Sklyarov [be prepared to
   spell this], a Russian national arrested in the US under the DMCA.
   The Department of Justice has refused today to release him after
   negotiations with the EFF.

   I'm calling to request [congresscritter's name here] support in
   securing Dmitry's release.

   Thank you.

You'll be asked for your zip code, possibly an address.  I'd also supply
a name.  Call, write, AND fax if at all possible.

In letters, I'd press, in order:

  2. Oppose the DMCA
  3. Question appropriateness of the Robert Meuller (FBI director
     designate) nomination in light of this prosecution.
