Tim Fasnacht (IWW and ABCF) has lost his final appeal
and is now the only Anti-Racist demonstrator from the now
infamous York-Pennsylvania demonstration to go to jail.

Tim's final appeal was rejected by a panel of 3 judges of the
Superior Court of Pennsylvania. He was charged with
disorderly conduct and now must serve a 90 day sentence
beginning February 9th 2004.

To add insult to injury Tim's lawyers never informed him of
the verdict which was rendered on November 14th. He found
out virtually by accident when the county prison mailed his
old address the necessary information for reporting to the
prison. He did not receive the official verdict notice until this
week.

Tim requested an extension of time but a superior court
judge immediately denied it.

Tim is in danger of losing his job. In a week or so he must
begin serving the time and his job of the last 7 years is
asking him to resign and to reapply when he gets out. Not a
good sign at all.

Any and all help is appreciated. We may not have been able
to keep Tim from going to jail but we can do our best to see
that this incident does not completely disrupt and turn his
life upside down.
