As many of you know, several activists were arrested at the Stop the Cuts rally on January 17th at City Hall (http://www.facebook.com/
Jonah Gindin, Brendan Bruce and Alex Marques have all been facing bogus charges, and very real legal bills. To date the total legal bill is between $3,000-4,000 and may still climb higher before the charges are withdrawn. They are very confident that they will be withdrawn soon as the police have been very slow in providing any disclosure since they don’t have evidence of any wrongdoing except on the part of the police who brutally arrested people for trying to enter a public space. But even when the charges are withdrawn as they believe they will be, they’ll still be stuck with a big legal bill.
Please donate if you can, and please spread the word to your lists and contacts. If they raise more than needed for legal, all extra funds will go to Stop the Cuts or the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty. Thanks for your solidarity!!
