Olympia/Tacoma Fantastic May Day Four Update #2
**PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY**
Since the last update, Shyam has obtained work release (still has no
hours), Stefanie has begun her home 30 days of electronic monitoring,
and Rand has started 45 days of home electronic monitoring.

We have set up a wiki to coordinate book lists, wish lists, visiting
information, etc. If you have information, please add it to the wiki! No
registration is required. We don't log IP addresses.
 http://www.olyhackbloc.org/wiki

The blog is still running and we'll continue to post updates there:
 http://www.olyhackbloc.org/wordpress

We've also set up a text alert system using Twitter. We'll be texting
subscribers when people are released, if their status has changed (ie
have they gained work release), when fundraisers are happening, etc. To
start getting updates, text "follow mayday4" (without the quotes) to the
number 40404. Twitter will ask you for your name via text, which can be
anything you want.

We are still looking for a point person who can have their contact info
(email or phone number) posted publicly that can keep track of book
purchases, visits, etc. for Rand and who can update us on any changes.

If you want to buy books for, visit, or otherwise get involved/have
questions, please contact the point people (that's the whole point after
all).

Shyam's Point Person: olekat10{at}evergreen.edu
Bryan's Point Person: thefruitoflilith{at}gmail.com
Stefanie's Point Person: caradeplastico{at}gmail.com

There will be some fundraising events coming up. If you're in the May
Day 4 (or a point person), please get in touch (ringo{at}hackbloc.org)
and send a list of items of various values that you'd like. This can
include covering your rent, any fines you have, car repair, groceries,
books, or pretty much anything.

We're looking for bands who would be willing to play a benefit show
which is tenatively set for September 9th. Get in touch if you know any
or are in one!

Solidarity!
