THE JURY TRIAL OF OCAP MEMBERS ACCUSED OF 'PLANNING A RIOT'
IS UNDERWAY AND WE ARE APPEALING FOR YOUR HELP.

The trial of Stefan Pilipa, Gaetan Heroux and John Clarke is now
underway.  Pretrial motions are now being heard and jury selection will
take place shortly.

Stefan and Gaetan are charged with 'participating in a riot' and face
two years in jail.  John has been accused of counseling to participate in
a riot and counseling to assault police.  He could go to jail for up to
five years.

These charges are drawn from the most reactionary and antiquated
sections of the Canadian Criminal Code that date back to 18th Century
Britain.  They are not normal criminal charges but tools of political
repression designed to crush opposition at times when the elites felt the
lower orders had to be put back in their place with a sharp lesson.  That
they are being used in Tory governed Ontario in 2003 speaks volumes about
the political climate in which OCAP is operating.

On our website at www.ocap.ca we are posting letters that to the
Ontario Attorney General, David Young, that have started to come in.  We
are asking all progressive organizations in Canada and internationally to
send such messages.  Young can be contacted at:-

          Tel: (416) 326-2220

          Attorney General of Ontario
          720 Bay Street
          TORONTO, Ontario M5G 2K1

Please send copies to OCAP at ocap@tao.ca or fax them to us at (416)
925-9681.

We will be sending out another update on the trial proceedings shortly.

We thank-you for your support and solidarity.
