ATTORNEYS TO DEMAND RELEASE OF JAILED JOURNALIST

Attorneys for Jailed Journalist Josh Wolf Petition District Court for
Full Release or Thanksgiving Furlough

(date of release) November 20, 2006-- San Francisco, CA – Attorneys for jailed
journalist, Josh Wolf, will appear before Federal District Court
Judge Alsup on Tuesday to argue for his release from federal prison,
where he has been held now for over 90 days. The length of his
incarceration is virtually unprecedented for a journalist refusing to
hand over information to a grand jury. Wolf’s attorneys are asking
for his immediate release or at minimum, a furlough for the
Thanksgiving holidays. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for
tomorrow:

Wolf was incarcerated earlier this year for contempt after refusing
to hand over his unedited video of a 2005 protest in San Francisco’s
Mission District.



WHEN: Tuesday, November 21, 2006, at 2 p.m.
WHERE: Courtroom 9
U.S. District Court, Northern District of California
San Francisco Division
450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco
