Had good holidays? Lots of money in the air... By thinking about giving
and receiving gift, we sometime forget what's happening to the others.
On december 23, there's a squeegee worker, on Vancouver,
who've been jailed. This squeegeers got, a couple month ago,
a bail which was saying that it was illegal for him to possess
a squeegee. Later, he got one that was saying he can not be
in merely all Vancouver downtown westside. So he got
arrested and made 2 week in jail, and he will probably get
more than a month next time he's caught with a squeegee.
He already made more than 2 month and half of jail since
march 2003, when the VPD started the anti-squeegee
project, and have a lot of court dates to come. His crime? He
is a squeegeers. He started like the others squeegee
workers, by getting court date, then conditions of having no
squeegee, then jail...
Also, if people remember about the arrested squeegee
organisers (from IWW Van) , there's update about it. You can
see the story at
One of the two arrested have his trial set on december 10
2004(and have condition of seeing bail supervisor and to not
be with 2 people who were member and supporter of
Iww/squeegee council) The girl who was arrested missed
her court date, got arrested and had some problem in
court(she did not took the time to call a lawyer before and
took a duty council lawyer...She didnt know court too much
as it was the first time she had to deal with it). She now
have an other no contact order with her co accused(yet,
another Iww/squeegee council member) and have to see a
bail supervisor EVERY FUCKING DAY!
The accusation both arested are facing are built on stupid
lies. A copy of the particulars can be sent to anyone who ask
it, so just contact us) . Both arrested are accused of
assaulting "peace" officer. On the particulars, both cops
who've supposedly been assaulted dont even say they were,
and all the others cops say different versions...
