The ottawa police are harassing, capturing, brutalizing, and intimidating
activists for protesting against social injustices. WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!
According to Khalid Lasfar:
Proscanto Smith (Turtle) has been charged with obstruction - this
apparently due to the time when the police DID NOT PRODUCE THE WARRANT
UPON MY REQUEST, AND DID NOT ARREST ME on friday aug 20 (so i left; i had
papers to mark, grades and a course outline to submit).
According to witnesses, Proscanto was also arrested and brutalized by the
police for panhandling under the SSA during the homeless action strike.
He's parapalegic and they took him out of his wheelchair and kicked it
away from him. We have photographs of this treatment. He also has
been red zoned from the whole area, including city hall and the court.

My probation conditions also prevent me from going to that area. I had to
cancel and reschedule my court-ordered probation appointment today for
fear of being arresting for going to it.

Also according to Khalid, Laura Doupe (Dee) has been arrested and is in
the detention center according to khald. She was present at the homeless
strikers meeting where brother hollingsworth and i co-facilitated a
community meeting. I don't know what she was charged with. I've been told
that she'll be appearing in court tomorrow for a bail hearing.

Dee's lawyer is looking for surity tomorrow. dee is homeless.
Dean Adana 721-2983

After having been harassed and intimidated I surrendered to the police
and was released on one breach of undertaking for going to a raging
grannies' demo at city hall. I was released the same day. I am terrified
to leave my house for fear of more warrants being created ti
imprison me again.

Please attend the community meeting tomorrow to speak out against the
rampant injustices being committed against members of the community!
