Canada's "Woodwards 54" Legal Defense Fund (english)
08 Oct 2002
A legal defense fund has been established to raise support for the
defense of the 54 people charged with civil contempt of a Supreme
Court order, at the Woodwards building in Vancouver, Canada, on
Sept. 21/02.
THE "WOODWARD'S 54" NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

In the early morning hours of Saturday, September 21, 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. 54 people were arrested and charged with
civil contempt for allegedly violating a Supreme Court injunction.

Those charged 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 LEGAL DEFENCE FUND"
AND ASK YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, UNION, HOUSING CO-OP,
CHURCH OR COMMUNITY GROUP TO DO THE SAME.

A legal defense fund account has been established; cheques and money
orders can be made payable to the "Woodwards Legal Defense Fund".
International Money Orders are preferable to cheques.

Please mail donations to:
Woodwards Legal Defense Fund
P.O. Box 21552
1850 Commercial Dr.
Vancouver, B.C.
V5N 5T5
CANADA
