I Don’t Rhyme for the Sake of Vigilin’

Short version:

If you live in SF, folks are asking you to support imprisoned journalist Josh Wolf by attending a vigil outside the Federal Building on April 2, where he will be inside having mediation talks with prosecutors. And if you can’t make it tomorrow, Wolf’s dad is holding vigils outside the Federal Building every day till his son is released, from 8am-ish till 6pm.

Also, if you live in San Diego, there will be an anti-police brutality march April 4, on the anniversary of the death of Jake Faust. That will kick off a week’s worth of events protesting the police, raising legal fees for a wrongful death suit against the SDPD, and celebrating the life of Jake Faust.

Greated details about Faust events here, details about Wolf events in SF and NYC follow (as well as some long-distance help you can give):

::::: MONDAY, APRIL 2: PLEASE COME! MEDIATION ROUND 2 :::::

There will be another round of mediation between Josh’s lawers and the federal prosecution tomorrow at the Federal Building in San Francisco. It would be a great show of support for Josh if we could turn out a big crowd tomorrow morning outside the Federal Building. At the last mediation as Josh was being driven into the basement car entrance, he spotted a supporter holding a sign out front and it meant a great deal to him. A large presence of supporters would also show the feds and the press that Josh’s support is broad and that we are determined to see him released immediately.

As Josh’s lawyers are under orders not to speak about the mediation process, we know very little about what took place at the last mediation and about what will take place tomorrow, but it is certainly an opportune moment to visibly demonstrate our support for Josh and demand once again that the federal government release him from his unjust imprisonment.

WHAT: Vigil for Josh during mediation
WHERE: Phillip Burton Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Ave. SF
WHEN: Vigil starts around 8AM and will continue through the day.
Get there early so Josh can see you when he his driven into the building!
