Tre Update: June 23, 2004

A current update from Tre. (Tre Arrow is a vegan environmentalist who is against corporate greed, animal cruelty, and environmental destruction.
June 23, 2004

Tre says thank you all for your love and support! Happy solstice! He is doing well, despite the conditions he is living in. While we talked on the phone this evening, he paused to thank a jail mate for an extra banana given to him. Tre is very kind hearted, and it is ironic that such a peaceful soul in in such an unpeaceful place.

Having said that, here are some current notes!

On June 30th, (Wednesday) at 10 am, he would like everyone to visualize that the "member of the immigration board deems him admissible for his refugee claim." He MIGHT be able to get out on June 30th if is a positive outcome. (I believe this is the hearing titled: Admissibility hearing.)

Please pray for him if you aren't able to attend the hearing! He says thank you all, and Namaste!

Here is some background on the case, and other information you might be interested in:

TALDF stands for "Tre Arrow Legal Defense Fund" ... There are two funds set up, one in Canada and one in the United States. Right now, the Canadian fund needs money a lot more. We still need bail money, so if you are able to contribute, PLEASE DO! Contact David for banking information.
