seattle wto 99 protesters

by radicalmom Thursday, Jun. 24, 2004 at 12:21 AM

if you were arrested, read this!

Were you in SEATTLE in 1999 at the WTO Protests?

Do you know someone who was?

Were you arrested?

Do you know someone who was???? Or someone who knows

someone who....?

There has been a victory from a class action lawsuit

and those involved need to take action now!!!! PLEASE

READ the message below and use your networks to get

this message out. AND join us in celebrating this



(Feel free to contact me (info below) for

clarification if you don't really know what this is


Hello all,

Please read this important messa ge (even

-?especially?- if you were not in this group of


Please help get information out to folks arrested in

the afternoon of Dec 1 1999 at 1st & Broad during the

WTO protests in Seattle.

As the attorneys explain below, the judge agreed to

the settlement so now people must TURN IN THEIR

PAPERWORK BY JUNE 22nd to be included in the class and

receive the $$ they are due. It's no longer just a

possibility, this is happening and the time frame is

short so please help now.

Yes, NOW is the time to work those networks to get

this information out to folks who might be out of the

loop. This is no small task and the attorneys can only

do so much:

We know folks.

We have websites on which we can post announcements

that arrestees might see (hint hint)

We have the networks and, without them, many will

never know that the city settled their case ...


TELL FOLKS TO CONTACT the attorneys (info below) so

they can send them forms to complete. NOW is the time

to do it since they will only have until JUNE 22nd to

return the forms.

Wouldn't it be great is we could get everyone arrested

at 1st & Broad to participate!!!! What a great message

that would send.

It would also be great if folks would cc me their

information so I can reach them better next time, but

my own request and isn't a part of the legal stuff

directly's up to them if they want to get my

occasional emails about this stuff.

... AND anyone arrested during WTO but not at this

location should also get their current info to me so

we can reach them better if the other case ever gets


In solidarity,


Jane WTO #890


P.S. If you yourself were arrested at 1st & Broad and

you want to participate but haven't received your

letter yet, definitely get your current mailing

address to the lawyers... ASAP they can send it

to you.

PPS. No apologies this time for duplicate posts. :-}

If you are getting this multiple times, it just means

you are still accessible this way. BUT many many other

folks aren't; I'd like every arrestee to get this at

least the one time they need so they'll know what's



Message from Tyler Weaver, attorney who has worked on

this and made it happen!

If you could distribute this message to your email

list, I would appreciate it.

This is a message from the primary attorney on the

litigation against the City of Seattle over the WTO.

For those arrested at First Avenue and Broad Streets

on December 1, 1999, there have been two important,

recent developments in the case.

1. Judge Pechman finally gave her preliminary approval

to the settlement reached in January. As a result,

today we are mailing, to all of the class members for

whom we have addresses, a notice explaining the

details of the settlement and a claim form approved by

the court. If you have given us your address, you

should be receiving this sometime next week. To

receive a settlement award, you MUST a) be a member

of the class arrested at First and Broad, and b)

return your claim no later than June 22, 2004. If you

were arrested at First and Broad but do not receive a

notice in the mail within 10 days, please either email

us (at

) or call us at 1-877-694-0660 (press 9, then 7).

If you are returning a claim form but were arrested

and booked as a John or Jane Doe, I strongly encourage

you to provide us with whatever other information you

have that indicates you are a class member, such as

your processing number or a copy of your processing


2. On our motion, Judge Pechman also recently ordered

the City to seal the arrest records for all of those

arrested at First and Broad, and furthermore to remove

all records of the arrests from the databases it uses

to give information to outside agencies. This should

help considerably in clearing the reco rds of those

who were arrested at First and Broad, although even

after the City cleans its databases, there may be some

residual effect in national databases that have the

old information. We had requested that the court order

the City to inform any such databases, but the order

did not go that far. A copy of the court's order is

attached to this email.

For those arrested inside the city's no-protest zone,

not at First and Broad, we continue to await the

decision of the Ninth Circuit. We hope to eventually

be able to send a similar email telling you that we

have also recovered on your behalf and that your

records have also been sealed. For now, all we can do

is wait and hope the court rules in our favor.

Tyler Weaver
