Free Josh Wolf! Benefit, August 24 in SF

Josh Wolf is a Bay Area journalist who was imprisoned for refusing to cooperate with the federal grand jury and turn over video footage that wouldn’t have even necessarily been relevant to their case.

Why does this matter to you? Because it means even journalist and citizen could potentially be legally compelled to aid in surveillance of political activity. Because journalists, artists and bloggers have the right to take private notes and recordings in order to cover events and craft stories. And because an attack on Josh is an attack on freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

Josh needs help with his legal bills and rent. I’m buying the beer and bringing the DJs, you just need to show up and support Josh. It’s the patriotic thing to do.

Thursday, August 24th (tentative), 7:00pm
