Support the Woodward's 58!

For more information on the Woodward's squat, please check the Vancouver Indymedia website at  http://vancouver.indymedia.org
** PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY **


THE "WOODWARD'S 58" NEED YOUR SUPPORT!


In the early morning hours of Saturday, September 22, 2002, the Vancouver Police Department Riot Squad stormed into the Woodward's squat which homeless people and their supporters had been occupying since the previous Saturday. 58 people were arrested and charged with violating a Supreme Court injunction.


The squatters and their supporters have to return to court November 7, 2002 to face civil contempt charges. The two lawyers who have so far represented us cannot possibly handle all of our cases themselves. THEREFORE, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT WE RAISE SUFFICIENT FUNDS FOR OUR LEGAL DEFENCE. PLEASE DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN TO THE "WOODWARD'S 58 LEGAL DEFENCE FUND" AND ASK YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, UNION, HOUSING CO-OP, CHURCH OR COMMUNITY GROUP TO DO THE SAME.


Please make checks payable to the "People's Opposition" and write "legal defence" on them. Checks can be mailed to:


Woodward's 58 Legal Defence
c/o Anti-Poverty Committee
42 Blood Alley Square
Vancouver, BC, Canada
V6B 1C7


** PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY **
