POLITICAL PRISONERS IN PHILADELPHIA UPDATE

by IMC Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2000 at 10:27 AM

As Police in Los Angeles swarm non-violent protestors and violate their first amendment rights, Prisoner's in Philadelphia face years in prison and thousands in fines.

As of this morning, Monday, August 14, there are still 48 Republican
convention protesters incarcerated in Philadelphia jails. 3 are
facing felony charges and the remaining arrestees are facing
misdemeanor charges.



$20,000 in bail is still urgently needed today to free those in
Philadelphia, and donations and loans are immediately accepted. Your
$5, $10, $20, $50 & $100 and larger donations will go a long way to
freeing these activists.



How to help:



wire money immediately to:
Philadelphia Direct Action Group (P-DAG) at:
PNC Bank
1600 Market Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
(215) 585-1170
(888) 762-2265


access the Philadelphia Direct Action Group's web site for
routing info: http://www.thepartysover.com
donations to the above account are not tax-deductable

or call (215) 701-7311


for recorded information

information for tax deductable donations can also be accessed at the
above website.



P-DAG is willing to take loans for bail funds, again please see the
website for details on how long you can expect to wait for repayment.



Activists are dealing with brutal conditions in jail, despite the
mainstream media's portrayal of the Philadelphia Police Department as
"using restraint", the truth is activists have been beaten and denied
access to medical care.



We need to help free these activists immediately and assist them in
dealing with the legal process that they still face.



Please note: daily updates will be provided on the status of those
still incarcerated. Please assume that bail is still urgently needed
until an update is sent with notification that everyone is out of
jail in Philadelphia.
