Below is a call for support of events and the campaign that 'Punching Out'
(NEFAC [North East Federation Anarchist Communist] - Toronto) is endorsing
and hopefully will have an information table at. Circulation and
publication of this email is highly encouraged (you have our permission).
Original Call: Hi everyone,
Jeffrey Reodica was a Phillipino youth who was shot 3 times
and killed by an undercover police officer (who did not
identify himself as police) in Scarborough, Toronto.
The youth committee of the Justice for Jeffrey Reodica
Coalition- comprised of Jeff's family, friends, and
supporters- are organizing an outdoor community gathering
on September 4th, as well as a concert in the near future
to remember and celebrate Jeffrey's life and to denouce
police violence.

Please check out the attached letter and send us our
endorsements, messages of solidarity, etc. Also, get in
touch if you'd like more information about the event; your
organization or group would like to table; and/or if you'd
like to support us other ways.

In resistance,

Members of the Youth Committee

RE: JUSTICE FOR JEFFREY EVENTS ENDORSEMENT

To whom it may concern;

We are currently seeking organizational and media endorsements and support
for an upcoming non-profit Festival and Concert in tribute of the late
JEFFREY REODICA, and to raise money for his memorial trust fund. Your
endorsement and support would help us to build momentum and energy for the
upcoming events described below, and would demonstrate your organization’s
support for our call for truth and justice in this case.

17-year-old JEFFREY REODICA was fatally shot three times in the back after
an encounter with two plain clothes Toronto Police officers on Friday, May
21, 2004. Eyewitnesses attest that both officers were indeed in plain
clothes and did not even identify themselves as police. They also say
Jeffrey was not armed. Three days later Jeffrey died at Sunnybrook
Hospital from critical complications from the gun shot wounds.

Our goal now is to peacefully call for truth and justice for Jeffrey and
ensure that this will never happen again by educating the youth and making
people aware of this problem. Also, by holding a Concert and Festival, we
hope to raise $10,000 towards JEFFREY REODICA’S MEMORIAL TRUST FUND to
help pay for the costly legal battle and finally achieve justice.

The Festival will be an all-day, summer family event with attractions and
activities for all ages including non-stop live performances, children’s
games, youth activities, basketball tournaments, a barbeque and beverages,
and more! It will be a fun, interactive and positive vibe. Admission is
free and many people are expected to attend. It will be held outdoors at
ALBERT CAMPBELL SQUARE next to the Scarborough Civic Centre in Toronto on
Saturday, September 4th 2004. The Festival will also serve to promote the
Concert that will take place a week afterwards.

The Concert will be an evening, summer event with a full line-up of
independent and major recording artists, appealing especially to the youth
of Toronto. Admission will be collected at the door and many people are
expected. It will be held outdoors tentatively in the beautifully enclosed
courtyard of Jeffrey’s high school, JEAN VANIER CSS, also in Toronto. The
date for this event is Saturday, September 11th 2004.

If your organization or media outlet is interested in endorsing our
planned events, wishes to materially or financially support the Justice
for Jeffrey campaign, or would like more information, please contact the
J4J: Youth Committee as soon as possible at welovejeff@reodica.com OR call
416-895-0555. Endorsers and supporters will be acknowledged in a variety
of ways, depending on the needs of your organization.

With your help and generosity we can greater our chances of achieving
justice for Jeffrey, and justice for all!

Sincerely,


JOEL REODICA GAIL NAVARRO AMANDEEP PANAG
