affidavit 3 won't load 15.May.2007 10:59

please fix

i cannot get affidavit number 3 to load. i get an error message that says "Object label badly formatted". Is this problem on IMC's end or mine? Can someone please post this one again.

By the way, I have read the other documents and I think these responses to the Schumachers' shrill complaints are fantastic. Very nicely stated.

Has anyone seen the hilarious right-wing cable access show with the Schumachers' attorneys? It's playing in re-runs on cable access channels 11, 21 and 23. It's good for a few laughs!!

to view Affidavit #3. Might have been a temporary IMC problem. The legal counsel for the defense (teamed with the defendants) has definitely done a fantastic job, very impressive.

Attached is the response from the City of Portland.

One more thing, there is a hearing at the federal courthouse Thursday May 17 at 10:00 am.

In case you can't turn your head sideways enough to read the attachments, it is easy to rotate the document views and enlarge them for easier reading as well. In the Adobe Reader toolbar, just look at the "rotate" icon to the left of the "ABC" icon and click it three times to rotate the page to portrait view. Then, you can go to the icon just to the left of the rotate icon and select the size of print that's best for you.

please fix

i wanted to write to say that i was easily able to download affidavit 3 when i got to a different computer.

the problem was definitely on my end.

thanks for making these available.

so what about the hearing? 17.May.2007 18:56

anon

did it happen? I assume it was the sort of thing where there'd either be a dismissal or the setting of a court date (and if it was the former we'd have heard that by now)

Are those cable access channels MCTV or PCM? I know a producer for those cable access stations who would like to broadcast a video response to Schumacher. Anyone interested in creating such a video please email me for more info.  wabc@mutualaid.org or  sixpack6t9@yahoo.com

Let's respond with some truth of our own. We can do it either at home using our video equipment, or in the studio at the station, or we can go live on scene with a complete video team of MCTV volunteers. This is a sincere offer with no strings or tricks attached. Contact me and we'll get together for a worthy cause,
