Josh Wolf's Civil Contempt Hearing Continued. New Hearing on August 1.

Independent Journalist Faces Jail Time for Resisting Grand Jury Subpoena
9:00 AM Civil Contempt Hearing
Josh Wolf's civil contempt hearing was continued until Tuesday August 1st. He still faces over a year in jail for refusing to testify or turn over video out takes to a Federal Grand Jury investigating a July, 2005, anti-G8 demonstration. At Josh's last hearing over 30 supporters, family and press filled the courtroom. Judge Alsup (in contrast to his last performance) was less abrasive and we feel this is due to the large turn out in the courtroom. This is why we are continuing our call for supporters to attend his upcoming hearings.

Josh faces more than a year in federal prison for simply exercising his constitutional right to remain silent, while standing up for freedom of the press.
