Support Steve Murphy!
Steve Murphy was recently arrested in Texas and charged with an alleged ELF action that occurred in California in September of 2006 (to read the complaint against Steve, visit www.supportsteve.org). He was recently extradited to California and is currently in San Bernardino County Jail. This puts Steve very far from many of his loved ones. It is hard enough to face this physical separation during such tumultuous times, but now Steve also has to attend court hearings in a place that many of his loved ones will be unable to reach. It is incredibly important that Steve see friendly faces in the courtroom. If you are in the LA area, please attend Steve's bail hearing on Wednesday, October 21st. Here are the details:
Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 3 p.m.
Edward R. Roybal Federal Building & U.S. Courthouse
255 E Temple St, Los Angeles 90012
MAGISTRATE JUDGE ANDREW J. WISTRICH
Court Room # 690
Please make sure you dress appropriately for court. Steve's freedom is at stake, and unfortunately, what we do could impact that.
ALSO – Steve has asked that people STOP calling the jail to request vegan food for him. It seems that the issue is being worked out with jail staff, and we don't want to jeopardize a precarious situation. Thank you to everyone who called! Your efforts helped secure Steve a bit more access to food he can eat.
