Today in San Francisco, Josh Wolf refused to testify or turn over unpublished video out
takes to a Federal Grand Jury investigating a July, 2005, anti-G8 demonstration. He was
charged with civil contempt by U.S. District Judge William Alsup and has been jailed
until further notice. He could be held for up to a year (the remainder of the Grand
Jury). His attorney is appealing the Judge's decision and will be filing motions for his
release.

We will send out specific requests for support (mailing address, phone and letter
campaigns, fundraisers, etc.) as soon as we have more details. Until then we ask that
you consider donating to Josh's legal support fund. This money will go to legal costs,
his prison commissary fund and other basic necessities.

Also, please visit Josh's blog and his support page for updates and suggestions for
support.

We want to thank everyone who attended Josh's hearings over the past 6 months and
participated in his support campaign. There were over 20 supporters present in the court
room today and many more who have been helping behind the scenes. The solidarity Josh
has received from the community has meant alot to him and his family and we encourage
everyone to keep up the support until he is free.

Please look for a complete update and support information tomorrow afternoon.
